The Timeline and You

Published on 01.08.2017

"Brothers fought their brothers. Sisters fought their sisters. They died for a cause—divided, but side by side. Their legacy is a message to their descendants, never to be forgotten."
—Admiral Yelgov Chrim, Consortium Prime

Historical events have a tremendous impact on culture. However, humans adapt very quickly and the events of the current generation quickly overshadow what happened in the past.

This article helps you to relate your character's backstory to the historical events of the Equinox Universe and build it around them. It also features a new illustration funded by our generous patrons!

Subspecies: Shanrazi

Published on 19.07.2017

The mystical forces of the universe have a direct influence on the human genome. Humans born in the presence of a mystic field, which before the invention of mystic field generators meant those born on a planet with a mystic cycle, sometimes belong to a subspecies.

In the Equinox Universe, many different subspecies have arisen and become extinct over the course of history. This article series features the accounts of members of the various subspecies, each discussing his own people. Naturally subjective and colored by individual experience, we picked those holding true to the most common opinion.


Auto-Summoner & Locator Rings

Published on 01.07.2017

"This isn't a relic you fool. We had to bust a factory for this. Wish we had this kind of spiritech before, and the people who helped us would still be alive.”
— Progus Tarr, Ringbearer Alpha

Developed as summoning engine and often mistaken for a relic, an Auto-Summoner is a powerful piece of technology from the deepest core of the Consortium. Auto-Summoner technology was created for the massive synth factories you find in pretty much all of the former colonies, for large-scale summoning and brain-washing of spirits from the astral realms.

This article covers examples for the powerful summoning engines stolen from the Consortium and features a new illustration funded by our generous patrons!

Playtest Special: Spellslingers

Published on 01.06.2017

"Master Slingers. Heh. I have heard a lot of spacefarers yarn in the decades I spent in Sol, but I truly believe these that follow are actual children's tales. There is no substantial scientific information about any of these so-called ‘Elites,’ and I doubt the Protectorate and Consortium would let such powerful individuals roam the 'Belt freely. They let the Vagrants have Sol, but that doesn't mean they don't keep tabs on the guys threatening the balance of power. So yeah, they'd take care of anyone who'd display such abilities. Take this as a lesson, man: don't embrace every word you hear on the space lanes."
— Sharuf, Dock Worker

This article is the playtest version of the Spellslinger Elite Paths supplement game material for your equinox game. Its designed to present your Spellslinger characters with more options for advancement and even greater power.

Published on 15.05.2017

"If you know absolutely everything there is to know about your enemy, at least he‘ll have to work extra hard to surprise you. He will surprise you, of course–that‘s what enemies do.
But I say, make him work for it."

— Kallinda Shierk, Chief Diplomat of the Entwined Serpents

All aboard the Vagrant Station!

Published on 12.05.2017

The Vagrant Station playset, designed for Bully Pulpits' excellent game Fiasco, is now available on DriveThruRPG. The playset was designed as part of the equinox Bits & Pieces article series we're running on Patreon.

This playset takes you to the far future and out into space. Whether it’s a small, cramped-up space station you create or a vibrant trade-port on an asteroid that even holds an artificial atmosphere, the stories they tell are alike. They aren’t about the exciting adventures of brave starship captains, witty space smugglers, or courageous heroes. Here, tired shift workers, bored prostitutes, and overly ambitious station guards stand in the spotlight. These stories are about their needs, their wants, and their poor decision making.
