A downloadable game

Novas and Nebulae is a rules-lite RPG for playing old-school-influenced sci-fi adventures. Fly among the stars, explore the expansive universe, fight aliens or don't, the choices are all yours! Be careful, though. The 'verse is as unforgiving as it is large...

Adding and subtracting rules to taste is expected and even encouraged, but not required.

This game is still currently under development. There are not item tables, but everything else should be there. To make an item, just assign a usage die (if it is consumable) and a cost.
