TWO HUNDRED SIXTY-SIX GREAT STORIES
Through WEDNESDAY, MARCH 30 the revived May 2016 Blue Planet Classic Bundle is your ticket to the waterworld of Poseidon, AD 2199
RETURN TO THE NEW FRONTIER OF LAMBDA SERPENTIS
Through Wednesday, March 30 we revive the May 2016 Blue Planet Classic Bundle featuring Blue Planet, the Biohazard Games SFRPG about exploration and conflict on the ocean world of Poseidon. With its convincing depictions of an alien planet’s geography, climate, and ecosystem, Blue Planet sets the standard for “hard” (scientifically accurate) sf roleplaying. Ahead of the new Blue Planet Recontact edition due later this year (funded in a big April 2021 Kickstarter campaign), this revival once again brings you both the First and Second Editions of the Blue Planet rules and all their major supplements — everything you need for open-ended adventuring on this “sandbox” waterworld.
AD 2078: Investigating an anomaly at the edge of the Solar System, the Prometheus II probe discovers a traversable ‘wormhole’ (space warp) that leads to the Lambda Serpentis system, 35 light-years from Earth. Ten years later, the United Nations establishes a small frontier colony of genetically engineered humans and ‘genlifted’ cetaceans on the system’s habitable ocean world, Poseidon. Earth’s civilization promptly collapses for over a century, but the abandoned colony thrives. Now it’s 2199, and Earth’s resurgent government(s) and Incorporate States have returned to Poseidon in a gold rush for the life-prolonging xenosilicate Long John. There’s a world to explore, an alien ecology to study or plunder, criminals to catch — and the original pioneers are rebelling. Meanwhile, deep in Poseidon’s endless ocean, mysterious “aborigines” pursue unknowable goals of their own.
On this wide-open frontier you can try just about anything, take on just about any profession, and be any kind of person — or uplifted dolphin, orca, or whale. (Play a beluga whale! With a rocket launcher!) Poseidon is a place where life is hard and dying is easy — where GEO Marshals enforce the peace and wired mercs patrol deep waters in deadly fighter subs — where corporate greed and human desperation ravage an alien ecology, threatening to plunge humanity into a war of survival with an ancient legacy. The 23rd Century will be a time of unprecedented possibilities, not just for institutions and governments, but for real people (and cetaceans) who have the will and courage to build a future for themselves.
