Entropic Science Fiction is a sci-fi tabletop role-playing game powered by the Entropic Gaming System 2.0 System Reference Document. It can accommodate all types of sci-fi settings and styles using the same set of mechanics. Designed with the principle of allowing maximum flexibility with fewer rules, characters can vary widely while still retaining the depth of their background, providing players with the means to translate their character concepts into something fully usable on the tabletop.
Using an escalating dice mechanic, from d4 through d12, a combination system that allows Skills to be combined with different Abilities to produce any possible action, character Qualities that can be used in-game to produce bonuses through Hero Points, and very flexible mechanics for combat and Talents (magic), ESF keeps the rules medium while presenting players with more options and flexibility!
Whether it’s space opera, post-apocalyptic, space fantasy, steampunk, or cyberpunk, Entropic Science Fiction can handle them all! Powered by the Open Gaming License, fans and Third Party Publishers can take advantage of the simple mechanics to make ESF THEIR game.
Entropic Science Fiction is a complete standalone core rulebook built from the EGS 2.0 SRD. It does not require any other book to be playable.
