Terra Arisen, softback campaign setting for Cepheus Engine, by Omer Golan-Joel, Richard Hazlewood, Josh Peters

“Terra Arisen is a space-opera setting for the Cepheus Deluxe Enhanced Edition sci-fi RPG rules. Terra Arisen introduces player characters to the immediate aftermath of the Terran Liberation War against the mighty Reticulan Empire and its many thralls. The Terrans forced the Reticulan Empire to sign a humiliating peace treaty and reluctantly accept Terran independence from the Empire. The upstart Terrans, bolstered by their victory against their old masters, are becoming a power to be reckoned with in interstellar affairs. On a backdrop of espionage, maneuvering, and saber-rattling on new interstellar frontiers, bold player characters can leave their marks as heroes or villains of the new United Terran Republic (UTR). This book provides background information, a 16 by 20 hex star-map covering most of the UTR and some alien territory, and write-ups of all 120 major worlds in this area, as well as other materials necessary to run a science fiction roleplaying campaign in the exciting times of the 23rd century.

This book contains:

  • History and background material for 23rd century Terra and the larger universe.
  • Corporations, political parties, and illegal groups – both Terran and alien.
  • 4 major alien species and several minor ones – all detailed!
  • Rules for generating and playing characters from 5 alien species.
  • 7 alien Careers and 5 Terran ones – from psionic Reticulan Nobles to the heroic Terran Guard!
  • Character generation rules and event tables for all included careers.
  • 2 small craft and 5 starships with full game statistics and high-res deck plans.
  • The Terran Quadrant, including 120 detailed worlds and a high-res star map.
  • A detailed adventure chapter with a wide variety of hooks for exciting adventures in Terran and alien space!

Note that this book provides character generations, biological and cultural background, and flying saucers (!) for playing Gray Aliens – ready to drop into any Cepheus Deluxe campaign and quite compatible with other 2d6 sci-fi RPGs as well!

This setting requires the Cepheus Deluxe rules for use.”
