Across the Sea of Stars
by Jeff Diewald, Susan Giusto, Tim Lasko, Barry Tannenbaum
The Klorn were ancient before anyone found them, a race so old that they must be one of the first to rise to sentience. Until now, they have resisted every effort to bring them into the Coterie - but everything you know about the Klorn is wrong... The Klorn have unexpectedly agreed to consider joining the Coterie, if representatives of the various races will tell the tales of how each of them came to the Coterie.
This is the history of the future, a science fiction game that ranges across the galaxy and beyond. It's a tale telling game, inspired by Tales of Pendragon and Arabian Nights, where you step into smaller vignettes throughout the game. It's a game unlike most others you've probably played before. You get to recreate stories new and stories familiar, playing characters legendary and forgotten, as humans and aliens set sail Across the Sea of Stars.
