It was three days before I got my first glimpse of the invaders: great monstrous, manlike machines that strolled through the city like they owned it. Later, I’d learn that these so-called golems were in fact soldiers equipped with high-tech armor that put our finest suits of field plated to shame. [...] I’d fought against the drow before, and I knew one thing for sure: if the drow were in charge of the galaxy, we were all in a lot of trouble.
Dragonstar, a roleplaying game available for download through rpgnow.com and drivethrurpg.com, is a unique space-fantasy campaign setting for the d20 system from Fantasy Flight Games. The Starfarer’s Handbook provides everything you need to run adventures and campaigns in this exotic setting. Players can incorporate their own fantasy world into the Dragonstar universe or introduce high technology and space opera elements into an ongoing campaign.
In the world of Dragonstar, dragons have taken taken up residence in deep space in the galaxy known as the Serpent’s Eye. The metallic and chromatic dragons rule the explored worlds throughout the galaxy in an uneasy alliance dubbed the Dragon Empire.
For five thousand years, the benevolent metallic dragons have ruled, but that time has passed. Dragonstar sets adventurers at the dawn of the rule of the Red dragons, and the cruelty of the new Red dragon emperor, Mezzenbone, knows no bounds. Drow soldiers in immense mechanized suits of armor powered by magic brutally conquer new worlds in the name of the Dragon Empire and its bloodthirsty new Emperor. Under the rule of the cruel Mezzanbone, nearly every world in the Serpent’s Eye galaxy has suffered. The Red Age holds little promise of peace or prosperity, and less than a hundred years have passed since its dawning. The peoples of the Serpent’s Eye galaxy despair for any deliverance from their plight, as well over four and a half thousand years remain before the Empire can pass from the hands of the evil chromatic dragon races.
The boundless universe of Dragonstar is characterized by the union of magic and machine, science and sorcery. Intrepid adventurers explore the Outlands in starships powered by fusion fire and arcane rituals. Set out for the far reaches of space with Dragonstar, and discover what magic lives in the far flung corners of the Serpent’s Eye galaxy!
