Our Cepheus Engine Product Line
What is Cepheus Engine?
Based on an incredibly popular 2D6 science fiction game developed in the late-1970s, through the 80s and 90s, Cepheus Engine uses Open Content sources to build a free access SF game of unparalleled utility and playability. This is due to the act that much of the material published over the past 35 years can still be used with Cepheus Engine. And new settings, vehicles, worlds and scenarios are being published in print and as PDFs every week. Cepheus Engine is the key to the door linking science fiction roleplaying adventures of the past with those of the future.
The game was skilfully created from Open Content material by Jason Kemp of Samardan Press. True to the Open Content mission, he has released the game for free. That is three decades of science fiction, perfected by a generation of roleplayers, available to you without charge. That is astounding. And simply because it is free, does not mean that it is 'worthless'. The rules within are honed and tested, crafted and complete.

A complete RPG that takes you into the Green Hell of Vietnam as an infantryman: a 'grunt'. You won't see the enemy, you probably won't see the booby traps ... and when the shooting begins, it might just be every man for himself. Dark.
GURPS ATOMIC HORROR - Still Selling!
“I've never seen the first edition of this book, but if it contains half the information the second has it would be a great buy as well. The updated version is one of the best GURPS sourcebooks on the market, bursting with material that just about any roleplayer could use. Atomic Horror's stated goal is to recreate the era of the B-movies - the campy horror/sci-fi of the 50's and its mutant progeny, including modern films like Mars Attacks... Not only is Atomic Horror a faithful homage to those films, it's a historical sourcebook as detailed as the best GURPS has to offer.”
