2400: Project Ikaros

Psychic powers are real — that’s common knowledge now. If you hear someone in your head, or see someone setting fires with a glance, you report it. Someone will take care of it. That someone is sent by Project Ikaros. And if you have psychic powers, or care about anyone who does, you’re either working for Ikaros, working against them, or trying to get away from them.

Project Ikaros is a super-slim, self-contained, lo-fi sci-fi RPG about elite agents pursuing rogue psychics. It’s inspired by Akira, Stranger Things, Mass Effect, X-Men, Shadow Ops, and Psi*Run, and built with the same rules as the free 24XX SRD. It’s 3 pages and a cover, fitting on two sides of a letter-sized page.

What is 2400? 2400 is lo-fi sci-fi. It’s centuries in the future, and it’s a decades-old modem that screams like a dying robot when it connects to the net. It’s a space ship with an FTL drive, artificial gravity, and a flickering display you gotta tap a few times to see the jump coordinates. It’s hacking something together with whatever cheap materials you have on hand, ignoring the rules until you need them, banging out something that might not sound finished, but definitely sounds fun. It’s a series of micro RPGs that might all be in the same setting, unless they aren’t.
