Ashen Stars!

Today when I came home from work I found my copy of Ashen Stars in my mailbox! Finally! I have been waiting for this day for a long time. I think I preordered the “Stellar Nursery Preorder Edition” in May and the wait was definitely worth it. Not only did I get an early preview of the rules, but my copy is signed by Robin D. Laws himself and I am even mentioned in the credits! Check out the photos I made. Smiley

A happy gamer!

Signed by the man himself!

This is definitely a good-looking book

As soon as I had some time to give the book a proper read, I’ll post a review here on Stargazer’s World. But since I am currently busy, busy, busy, this may take a while. But you can trust me when I tell you that Ashen Stars is well worth every penny! If you like the GUMSHOE system and Science Fiction, you’ll love this game!

  1. I also just got my copy of Ashen Stars, and I’m favorably impressed so far. I’m not familiar with the Gumshoe rules, but I like the presentation and setting!
