Distress Calls for Space RPGs is a book full of 1-page scenarios, each of which is a uniquely designed distress call for your space RPG.
To my knowledge, there isn’t anything else like this available. Most currently existing distress call resources are created using procedural generation – 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
If you aren’t sure this is the right resource for you, you can download 3 free Distress Calls here, or check out the sample distress call below.

My crew made it through the adventure (no spoilers), and on their way from Walston to Flammarion, they decided to stop over in Bowman, and try their hand … Continue reading Announcing: Distress Calls for Space RPGS Resource Book
