Description:

Humans have been in space tens of thousands of years, and societies have risen and fallen so many times that no one remembers where we come from.

Colonies are grouped in clusters of a few systems connected by slipstreams—artifacts of the cosmos or perhaps a forgotten technology. Only the slipstreams allow travel faster than light. Apart from that, spacecraft make do with reaction drives, dumping heat as best they can.

Diaspora is a self-contained role-playing game, with rules for starship battles, individual combat, social interaction, and platoon-scale engagement, in an original science fiction setting that you help design.

This is your universe. How are you going to survive?

Diaspora is based on the FATEv3 engine made famous by Spirit of the Century. It is published under the Open Gaming License.

This game is worth purchasing for the social combat system alone. I've never seen a system for resolving social situations that is this imaginative, clearly explained, and fun to play. This is to say nothing of the rest of the book, which would be well [...]

Picked this up at the recommendation of a friend of a friend and have been extremely happy with the purchase. The FATE system is beautifully flexible and the mini-games added in Diaspora really round out the storytelling possibilities. My original [...]

Diaspora was written by a bunch of people who love Traveller, but also love indie games where players share narrative control with the gamemaster. So they took Fate, the game system that Spirit of the Century and the Dresden Files RPG are built on, 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.
