The first major sourcebooks for Star Trek Adventures are out! The game has seen a core book, adventures, pregenerated characters, and custom dice but not much in the way of official expansions of mechanics and options. There are two books releasing next month but if you have the PDF Collection then you’ve already gotten links to them. The first one (alphabetically) is a sourcebook outlining the Beta Quadrant, home to the Klingons, Romulans, Orions, and other nasties. What is the book like? Well read on and find out.
I’ve been enjoying Star Trek Adventures a lot and think it’s well-poised to become the sort of sweeping Star Trek RPG that Last Unicorn Game’s Star Trek RPG was. To do this, though, it needs to expand beyond Federation starships and into territory that Star Trek fans are interested in and don’t necessarily have an on-screen model for. To help with that process, I’m starting with a short guide on how to play STA as everyone’s favorite xenophobes: the Romulans.
