Welcome to Orion’s Spur, the backdrop for a brand new science fiction setting for Monte Cook Games’ Cypher System. This Starter Kit will allow you to create Tier 1 Cypher System characters in one of five playable species. A modified version of the standard character sentence gives meaning to both your Species and where you come from (with the addition of Origins). Combined with 30 pages of setting material including rumors and adventure seeds, this Starter Kit, when combined with the Revised Cypher System Rulebook (which is required to play this game), has everything you need to begin exploring the galaxy of Hope’s Horizon.
However, if you want more, you can get started even faster by downloading the free introductory adventure: The Faralon Score. Written with this setting specifically in mind, it will get your players started immediately by dropping them into one of the notable events in recent history on the setting’s timeline. What will you do when you’re caught between a terrorist cell and a multi-planetary pharmaceutical corporation?
There’s even more coming! We at Angel’s Citadel are already beginning work on the Hope’s Horizon Core Rulebook which will allow characters up to Tier 6, expand the setting, add additional equipment and rules such as vehicles and vehicle and starship combat, and more. And that’s only the beginning. More worlds, more species, more… well, more are on their way. Strap yourselves in and get ready to launch into Hope’s Horizon!
