Distress Calls for Space RPGs

Distress Calls for Space RPGs is a book full of 1-page scenarios, each of which is a distress call for your space RPG. To my knowledge, there isn’t anything else like this available. Most currently existing distress call resources are procedural generated – meaning, a few keywords are rolled on random tables, and the game master puts together the encounter based on those results.

Distress Calls for Space RPGs is different. Each scenario has:

  • a unique encounter
  • character and ship names
  • character motivations
  • skill suggestions on how to handle the distress call
  • mechanics for what happens if a character succeeds or fails
  • scenario resolution

Here’s an example distress call:
