Description:

Dying is easy, living is hard and pain is a given…

Centuries from now mankind lives on in the Sirius galaxy, an enormously vast and dense system of stars. It’s a greedy industrial society run by corporations and the Governmental Industrial Complex. The onslaught of strip-mining has stirred something terrible best left buried and forgotten.

The sci-fi universe of Cold & Dark is a frightening and violent world. In the reaches of space the protagonists have to face known as well as unknown horrors. The players take on the roles of people who have chosen to live on the edge as site engineers, corsairs and deep space salvagers. Only out there in the big empty, on the verge of disaster facing the horror, do they flourish and realize their full potential. This is sci-fi at its darkest.

Some Game Features

  • Starmap and information on 18 solar systems.
  • A look into the mysterious religion known as Infinitology.
  • 19 avatar packages the players can use as inspiration in order to create their avatars.
  • Stats and examination of the violent and parasitic Ripper race – The greatest threat to life as we know it.
  • Unique equipment such as the COG – Customized Operation Gear- the personal nano-tech suit worn by those working in space. Calibrate it by choosing among dozens of applications and upgrades.
  • A simple and cohesive system which allows the players to manage their own ships and engage in everything from piracy to deep space salvage operations.
  • Rules and information regarding VPS – Void Psychosis Syndrome, a mental illness which has the power to bring the whole of humanity to its knees.

Cold & Dark is a standalone roleplaying game. Suited for mature players.

My first intro to this game was a one-off session at a gaming convention; it's presented simply enough that someone with absolutely no experience with it can easily get into the swing of it, while still being complex and intriguing enough to have me buyin [...]

OMG! I have to say this is THE game I have been waiting for. Having been an avid RPGer for 25+ years and having messed around with probably all of them this one has everything I have ever looked for in a sci-fi RPG. With a little story tweeking one could [...]

Also not a reviewer, but picked this one up after reading the quick-start. The executive summary: A gameworld and system that essentially supports Aliens/Prometheus/Deadspace/Serenity all tied into one. The system uses a dice pool of D8s which [...]

I wanna start out by saying, I'm not realy a reviewer. I just want to put down my thoughts on this book. To start, it is fantastic! 315 pages, with a system reminiscent of Old World of Darkness Storyteller. Using d8s instead of d10s. Streamlined and [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
