Ninefox Gambit Roleplaying Game
New York Times bestselling author, Yoon Ha Lee, has adapted his Hugo and Nebula Award nominated space opera into a roleplaying game! The game is scheduled to publish on October, 3, 2023, and you can preorder it now through Android Press. The game comes in eBook, paperback, and special edition full color hardcover with interior splash art.
Based on the Machineries of Empire space opera series.
This is a tabletop roleplaying game of heresy and hard choices set in the tyrannical interstellar empire known as the Hexarchate.
YOU belong to one of the Hexarchate’s six factions.
YOU are entangled with a regime that can change the very laws of physics—at the cost of human sacrifice.
CONFRONT your leaders, at the risk of being labeled a heretic and hunted down?
CHANGE the system from within, despite the chance that you’ll be crushed by it instead?
COLLABORATE to preserve what you can, at the cost of your principles?
Assimilation is a fate worse than death.
Designed by Yoon Ha Lee and based on his Hugo-nominated Machineries of Empire space opera series.
Included in the gamebook are the full game rules and mechanics, plus three starter scenarios by Marie Brennan, author of The Memoirs of Lady Trent and, with Alyc C. Helms as M. A. Carrick, the Rook and Rose epic fantasy trilogy.
