After what seemed to be an eternity, Blue Planet returns in a revised edition from FASA(?!) I guess I must have been out of the loop when Redbrick handed this off to FASA (or something else happened) but I’m glad that the product is out all the same. With all the nice Sci-Fi games out there, Blue Planet has a special place for being one of the more interesting settings. I’ve always wanted to run Blue Planet and getting this opportunity to check it out in a nice PDF format is a definite bonus.
Welcome to Poseidon, 2199 AD
Prepare for a compelling journey into humanity’s future on a distant planet, where life is hard and dying is easy. A world where GEO Marshals enforce the peace and wired mercs patrol deep waters in deadly fighter subs. A place where corporate greed and human desperation ravage an alien ecology, threatening to plunge humanity into a war of survival with an ancient legacy.
Welcome to the world of Blue Planet.
