Gareth Sharka Releases - Star System: Every Star A Destination - Still No Far West update over 12 Months Later

 Ah, sweet, sweet Gareth. No time to work on Far West. Time, however, to work on and release Star System: Every Star A Destination. 24.99 for PDF, 24.99 in Print, 24.99 in Print plus PDF.


The writers and editors behind some of your favorite releases for the greatest space-fantasy RPG of all time return to the D6 System!

Former West End Games Star Wars Creative Director Eric S. Trautmann assembles an all-star bullpen of veteran D6 System writers, including:

Bill Smith (Line Editor, The Star Wars Roleplaying Game.)

Peter Schweighofer (Editor, The Star Wars Adventure Journal.)

Timothy S. O'Brien (Pirates & Privateers.)

Drew Campbell (Cynabar's Fantastic Technology: Droids.)

Gareth-Michael Skarka (D6 Space: Ships.)

Michael Kogge (Star Wars Adventure Journal.)

Wayne Humfleet (Heroes & Rogues.)

...together again to bring you an anthology of eight brand-new D6 System-compatible space-fantasy adventures.  Each scenario is ready to be dropped into any existing campaign, or used to launch a new one!

Visit scenic Tekazzil, home to a royal society that views laws as optional and profit as king; slog through alien jungles in search of an ancient artifact... and the lunatic who hopes to find it first; battle octopoid pirates above the gas giant Arx; try to survive an ancient ghost ship trapped in a ruined sector of space; witness the fearsome might and utter horror of a planet of bureaucrats; avoid being caught in the fatal crossfire between vicious university academics; battle for survival against a brutal race, long believed to be extinct; and join a rag-tag fleet of xenoecologists as they attempt to preserve a pod of galactic leviathans...

The galaxy is vast and unforgiving... especially on the edges of known space.  Out there, a willingness to risk it all can be the key to survival. Every flight means danger, every landing field, starport, or orbital base can be the line between life and death.


PDF and Print Edition are the same price -- and if you order the Print Edition, you get the PDF for FREE! Included with the PDF are a set of bonus files with all of the handouts, references and templates, ready to print.

This adventure anthology is the first of Adamant Entertainment's new line, STAR SYSTEM, a series of epic space-fantasy releases intended for use with any game using the classic D6 System.

  1. Wait, he’s publishing this? I’d have sympathy if he were doing contract work by writing to keep the lights on, since Far West isn’t bringing any money.

    And the pricing is … interesting. I’m not up much on the economics of this industry, but I don’t see how there’s a big print demand for an adventure anthology for a low-demand system, especially when he can’t use the brand name.

    1. It looks like Eric Trautmann is publishing this (or at least is the lead designer/coordinator. It's hard to tell how much Skarka wrote, but I'm assuming it's not much, since there are so many coauthors.

    2. Gareth-Michael Skarka is an e-book author[1] and game designer who founded Adamant Entertainment and has worked primarily on e-published role-playing games.

      Gareths company is the publisher.

  2. Just wanted to thank you for keeping us all updated on these kickstarter scofflaws. It's important to help people avoid getting taken advantage of.

  3. I know I make this same comment every time you mention Skarka, but I'll just keep the tradition alive by again saying "What an asshole."
