If I Can’t Be A Beholder With A Flying Pirate Ship, I Ain’t Playin’

Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce the imminent launch of Dragonstar, a new space-fantasy RPG setting for use with the d20 System. […] Dragonstar is a universe of magic and machine, science and sorcery, a universe where dragons rule a galactic empire and humans, elves, dwarves, and the other major races struggle with an ancient and terrible legacy.” Okay, everyone, listen up: FFG got the dungeons-and-lasers magic ticket, a’ight? Anyone else who attempts a d20 game or campaign setting that blends fantasy and sci-fi gets mercilessly mocked. We’re going to be hardliners about this. No exceptions. 😉

Actually, this looks like it’ll be decent; lead writer Matt Forbeck did good work on Brave New World, which had a premise similarly rife with cliche-hazard. Looks like some of the Blue Planet guys will be working on it as well, which stands to reason. Something to look forward to for October 15th, the release date for the first two hardcovers.
