Star Compendium: Systems of the Verge, softback Star*Drive supplement for Alternity, by David Eckelberry
“The Star*Drive® Campaign Setting sweeps Alternity® game adventurers into one possible future: a bright galaxy shining with humanity’s accomplishments but cursed with all its flaws. The galaxy’s attention centers around the Verge, a region a mere one hundred light-years across that is home to thousands of stars awaiting exploration by heroes. The Star Compendium brings to life more than a dozen of those star systems.
This accessory includes:
- An updated map of the Verge, accompanied by an overview of the state of the region and its future, as well as a primer on how the Verge colonies relate to one another, and a discussion of how visitors and natives get from place to place.
- An in-depth look at six systems, fleshed out to the level of detail of the major systems in the Star*Drive book, offering a mixture of settled worlds (Karnath and Dewi), lost colonies (Vieron and Tychus), fledgling outposts (Talbott), and virgin territory (Eldala).
- Adventure hooks and opportunities to entertain, challenge, and reward the brave and the clever.”
