It was in the late years of the 21st Century, while Humanity was immersed in a new Cold War, that we stumbled upon them. We were not alone. Worse: we had been under supervision by aliens for centuries, considered too primitive to handle the truth.
And we soon proved them right.
Earth plunged into chaos. Nations shattered, religions split, revolts consumed the world. Thousands died and the face of the planet changed.
But humans are adaptable. We survived and we forced ourselves into Galactic Society. We were the Galaxy’s underdeveloped species, the inferior race, the second-rate citizen.
Veil of Truth – Human Nature is a 64-pages campaign book that brings you:
- A gazetteer about each of the planets under Human control, both in and out of the Solar system;
- An update on every one of the major human governments in the 22nd century;
- Entries on each of the corporations powerful enough to obtain sovereignty by the UN;
- Extrasolar colonies and organizations that dared leave the Free March and enter the unknown;
- Pathfinder Roleplaying Game rules for human character, high tech equipment and more.
Fly into the Saturn warzone, visit the dangerous streets of Mars, operate one of Lester-Campbell’s power suits and fight the corporate wars on the streets. Go further away to the ocean-world of Toliman, where the European Union, the United States of North America and the League of Worlds fight for control.
While aimed at the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, this is a rules-lite lore book, so that it’s not only easily adaptable to any game system, but also a great read for science fiction fans!
Will you help Humanity reach the stars?
This crowdfunding campaign is aimed gathering R$ 3.000 (approximately $ 1.560 dollars) at paying for the book’s illustrations as well as a small print run and revision work. It is also a first step into producing a larger number of professional quality products, as this is mostly a one-man army project. And, most of all, help me convince my wife this kind of product sells!
We expect to have the e-book done by early July (possibly earlier) and the printed version ready for shipping a month afterwards. Rewards that include the miniatures shouldn’t take any longer than that.
What if we get more than our goal? More means more, of course!
If we reach R$4.000 reais ($2083 which, by the way, is the year of first contact!) I will write an exclusive novella that will be shared as a PDF with all backers. The theme of the novella will be voted by backers out of a list of possibilities after the end of the campaign.
If we get to R$6.000 reais ($3125), I will create an exclusive introductory adventure available only for backers. The adventure will be available as PDF for all backers and also in print for anyone pledging R$35 or more.
What if we get more? Well, who knows? Let’s find out!
