Character Description[edit]

Space Captain Biff Arturo Degan is a man's man, ladies man and man about town. Famous in the society pages as well as in academic circles, he has graduated from test pilot school to become one of the finest Space Captains in Space Corp. He is as likely to find a solution to problems with his fists as with his head, and this has often got him into trouble with the pencil pushers back home. But they don't know what it's like out in space. It's the new frontier, and a man has to be a man to make it out here.


A pretty painless process overall. Simple skill allocation system that reminded me a great deal of Call of Cthulhu, which I suppose is not surprising given the source material. The perks are a great idea, and I think these are mainly responsible for the flavour of the game during play.
