    Coriolis - The Third Horizon RPG

    "Firefly meets Arabian Nights in this unique sci-fi RPG. Crew a starship and explore the ancient mysteries of The Third Horizon!"

    Coriolis - A Sci-Fi RPG from the makers of Mutant: Year Zero

    Coriolis RPG is a Swedish sci-fi RPG currently in Kickstarter (until 8/11/16) to publish an English edtion.

    We funded the project for a hardback, full-color book in an hour or two.

    We then proceeded to blow through 12 stretch goals in the first day.

    Currently we are close to unlocking our 23rd stretch goal to add a new star system, Odacon, to the Atlas compendium.

    Check out the KS home page and the updates pages to see samples of the amazing and evocative artwork in the book(s). Also feel free to drop by the comments page if you have any questions. We have a great and friendly community building there.

    Don't wait too long to jump on the ship. We only have three days left in the Kickstarter...and there are a couple of limited edition cover pledge levels, Icon and The Darkness, but they are going fast. I'm a Darkness edition backer myself, plus I added on the extra 400 SEK (about $48 USD) for a copy of the standard/retail edition too.

    Here's a bit more about the book(s) and game from the creators:

    "The Third Horizon is a series of interlinked star systems far away from Al-Ardha, or Earth as we call it. Each system contains portals leading to the other systems in the Horizon. During the recent Portal Wars, all portals leading back to the First and Second Horizon were destroyed, plunging the Third Horizon into isolation and decay.

    Years later, the long-lost arkship Zenith arrived from to the First Horizon. The colonists scavenged their ship, rebuilding it into the great space station Coriolis and declared a new era in the Third Horizon – a time for trade, reawakening and peace. They invited the older factions of the Third Horizon to join a council to address grievances between the people of the Horizon.

    All would be well if not for the faceless Emissaries, arriving from the depth of the gas giant Xene. Spectres from another world, Icons or Portal Builders - what are they? They claimed godhood as Icons, and once again the Third Horizon is torn between the newcomers and the powers of old.

    Now, it time for you and your friends to make your mark on the Third Horizon. Your ship is your home and every spaceport is a chance to find work and adventure. You don’t know it yet, but you will soon be caught in the coming maelstrom. Will you be the one to decide the fate of the Third Horizon?"

    Wow...another stretch goal is passed as we travel the Third Horizon of the Coriolis RPG together!

    We have just added the Star System Odacon to the Atlas Compendium that all Backers at Space Nomad and above get in PDF...and all Backers at Dignitary and above get in a printed book!

    Next stop...another Scenario Location: Portal Station Hamurabi...and the introduction to it sounds...worrisome and evocative!

    Update 32: The Star System Where The Story Begins · Coriolis - A Sci-Fi RPG from the makers of Mutant: Year Zero

    We're at 56 hours left in the voyage of this Kickstarter.

    1425 souls are onboard...and more crew is being taken on constantly.

    Of the limited edition cover pledge levels:

    If you're in the UK - there's one LAST Icon pledge level open at this time.

    For everyone - there're only 140 The Darkness pledge levels left right now. There were 200 just a day and a half ago...and the 48 hour warning is getting ready to hit. Just FYI.

    Things exploded in the Coriolis KS with the 48 hour warning!

    We have surpassed the last stretch goal which gives everyone at the Dignitary and above pledge level a physical GM screen...no additional cost to the Backer!

    Update 34: Entering Uncharted Space · Coriolis - A Sci-Fi RPG from the makers of Mutant: Year Zero

    There are still 29 hours left in the KS if you've been considering jumping in. As the update and creators have said...there are no more planned stretch goals for this project, we blew through EVERYTHING. So this post isn't me trying to twist arms to bulk up the numbers for selfish reasons. I just really feel like it's a worthwhile product to share.

    =)

    This is it...the last nine hours of the Coriolis - The Third Horizon RPG Kickstarter!

    It's been a wild ride and we've blown through EVERY stretch goal to bulk up the core book, add a second Atlas Compendium, a dual-sided poster map of the Third Horizon & Coriolis Station, a deck of Icon cards, and a GM Screen. That doesn't even count a novella and five other PDF only (for now) stretch goals!

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1192053011/coriolis-a-sci-fi-rpg-from-the-makers-of-mutant-ye/posts/1652841

    At this time, all of the Icon Limited Edition book pledges have been claimed and there are only 105 Darkness Limited Edition book pledges left.

    If you've been looking for a human-centric, sci-fi RPG with an unusual setting, come check out Coriolis and begin your adventures in the Third Horizon!
