Far Avalon Book 2: Background and Spacecraft
Far from the Home Worlds, the Far Avalon region was for many years an underdeveloped backwater. Now, it may be the only enclave of humans left in the universe. With the inexplicable failure of the Lubeck Conduit, the people of Far Avalon must find their own future. Some seek to build empires, some search for a way home, while others have less obvious plans.
Far Avalon is a region in turmoil, a place where a handful of daring individuals can make a difference. A new order may emerge, or chaos may descend. Perhaps some external threat is about to fall upon the people of Far Avalon… or it may be that the greatest danger comes from within.
Far Avalon is a complete science-fiction game setting created by Martin J Dougherty. Book 2 is an Atlas of the Far Avalon region, detailing the star systems of the region and their worlds. Many systems have several inhabited worlds and moons, and many worlds have multiple distinct societies. All are presented in detail, each with its own unique flavour.
Book 2 details habitable Green and Brown systems, harsh Rockballs, borderline Gray worlds and lethal Hell Worlds. A wealth of other adventure settings can be found on moons, asteroid belts and even in supposedly empty Barren systems.
