The last of humanity are fleeing across space, pursued by the implacable inhuman adversary that destroyed their civilisation. They're outnumbered and outgunned. Supplies are running low. The actions of a brave few could be all that stands between humanity and extinction. Welcome to the Last Fleet. Last Fleet is a tabletop roleplaying game where you play brave pilots, officers, engineers, politicians and journalists struggling to hold the human race - and themselves - together under unbelievable pressure. The game focuses on action, intrigue and drama in this high-stakes situation. You'll fight space battles, search for enemy infiltrators, tackle supply shortages and navigate faction politics. You'll strive against your own self-doubt and sometimes crack under the stress. The game provides support to create your own evocative setting, or you can play out of the box as the survivors of the Interplanetary Commonwealth. This fractious alliance of planets was wiped out by the Corax - an extradimensional fungus network that dwells in the tenebrium, the same medium that FTL ships travel through. The Corax attack through spatial rifts, launching spore ships to harry the fleet. Victims are paralysed and have their genetic and neural patterns harvested: everything you know, the Corax now know. And worse, your former friends may see you again, reincarnated as a Corax avatar. Mockup of what the book will look like Join the fleet today The playbooks each represent a particular personality, approach or set of issues you want to explore. There are twelve: Aries, a hot-headed character who rushes in where angels fear to tread, and is unafraid to speak their mind. Taurus, a tough, selfless and principled character who does what’s needed no matter how much punishment is thrown at them. Gemini, a charismatic communicator who pursues their own agenda that might not be completely in line with the fleet’s interests. Cancer, an experienced leader who cares deeply for their comrades, but may be a little too willing to overlook their problems. Leo, a magnetic individual who people want to follow. Where will they lead them? Virgo, a serious professional who prides themselves on being the best, but may put themselves under too much pressure at time. Libra, a skilled diplomat and negotiator who may be looked to for leadership. Scorpio, a secretive manipulator whose motives are in doubt – including by themselves. Sagittarius, a relentlessly curious person who might be an explorer, engineer or spy, or perhaps all three. Capricorn, an uncompromising tactician who is willing to take risks to defeat the enemy. Will they take things too far? Aquarius, a perceptive investigator who does not shrink from confronting the truth, no matter how painful it might be. Pisces, an otherworldly person with strange abilities that allow them to see things others do not. In addition to your playbook, you can choose a role within the fleet. You can play a military officer, pilot or marine, engineer or scientist, journalist or civilian leader. Each comes with its own special move. PBTA Last Fleet is based on the excellent Powered by the Apocalypse framework pioneered by Apocalypse World. In this case, that means it uses a simple 2d6 based system, with prompts for interesting, dramatic outcomes from every roll; characters are organised into playbooks that provide everything you need on a single piece of paper; and GM advice is codified into clear principles that tell you not just how the mechanics work but how to get the best from the game. Under Pressure The game's mechanics push forward the central theme of pressure: pressure on your characters, pressure on the fleet, pressure on humanity. You can win almost any conflict if you're willing to pay the consequences, by racking up more pressure on your character that ultimately pushes them to Breaking Point. That's when your character goes off the rails, lashing out at their friends or hurling themselves into certain doom. The only way to keep the pressure under control is by indulging your vices and risking losing control, or by building relationships that matter with other characters. Neither route is risk-free. When you're not putting your life on the line, you're putting your heart on the line.
