Science Fiction Adventure in the Far Future
Laserburn is a science fiction roleplaying campaign set in the far future. The rules are a Savage Worlds conversion of the Classic Traveller RPG.
Humanity has gone to the stars and found them crowded with other forms of life and other sentient races, and science and technology have advanced vastly over the present day – but the essential nature of humanity is unchanged. Life continues as it always has, only spread out over the sea of stars.
The setting for Laserburn is the Third Imperium of Mankind. This mighty galactic empire unites thousands of star systems under a single rule, but is beset by enemies both internal and external. The Imperium commands the space between the stars, ensuring that civilization endures and trade continues. Megacorporations and feudal lords conduct the bulk of this trade, but there will always be a place for the free trader – hardy travelers and adventurers on the fringes of known space, dealing in strange goods and smuggled cargoes, doing whatever they can to make a credit.
In this setting Players take on the roles of tramp merchants, nomadic rogues, and mercenaries, wandering the galaxy in search of profit and adventure.
