2400: Exiles

On the far end of the galaxy, a dead civilization left a world of ancient wonders and fell plagues. Now under orbital blockade, all who set foot here struggle to survive as exiles.

Cosmic Highway is a super-slim, self-contained, lo-fi sci-fi RPG about strange castaways trying to get by in a xenotech-riddled quarantine world. It’s inspired by Numenera, Ultraviolet Grasslands, Acid Death Fantasy, and the comic art of Moebiusand 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.
