There is a planet that no ship escapes. A place where death calls like a beacon amongst the waves of the living. This is the DEAD PLANET.

Dead Planet is the first module for the MOTHERSHIP Sci-Fi horror roleplaying game by Tuesday Knight Games. It's packed to the brim wtih usable, gameable content for any sci-fi rpg, including:

  • A one-page adventure on a derelict ship, called THE SCREAMING ON THE ALEXIS.
  • A planetcrawl of the dead planet with several locations, including the five-level underground bunker THE RED TOWER
  • An exploration of a ritual cannabilistic society traped on the Dead Planet's moon in MOON COLONY BLOODBATH
  • A generator for making your own derelict ships at the table
  • Several incredible tables ripe for stealing, including: d100 nightmares, d100 colonists, an eerie sculpture generator, and a hyperdrive malfunction table
  • And much, much more!

This adventure is suitable for characters of any level in a survival horror setting and is sure to pose a challenge to even the most battle hardened party. You can even find the core rules for Mothership here for Pay What You Want.

One quick question - is the building unit 20 feet x 20 feet or is it 20 meters x 20 meters? Several descriptions read meters, but sometimes there is a measurement of 20' x 20' used. The maps are closer to feet ...

Bought it after reading the report on, sat down to take a quick look only, read for three hours straight. This is amazing stuff, weird horror plus scifi. Has a definite Alien vibe, confers a very claustrophobic feeling in closed spaces, creeps you out with eery descriptions of landmarks. The moon colony is a nightmare, no easy choices to be made. Mostly dense descriptions to work the DMs Imagination. The random tables (Lots!) live up to this.

Can't wait to unleash this on my players, i like them jumpy and on edge.
:) ;)

I REALLY want a print version of this. The design is so beautiful and obviously meant for print that I won't even bother with the PDF. PLEASE tell me there is reprint coming soon! "Mothership" was one of the most beautifully designed RPG booklets I've ever seen.

I played Mothership at Archon in St. Louis about a month ago, and it was fantastic! Quick and easy character gen, and an easy percentile system. I'd highly recommend checking it out

As a publisher I cannot leave a review, however, I can comment that this is a no brainer, must buy. Don't use Mothership? No big deal. The concepts in this adventure/toolkit are amazing and well worth the price of entry. Use it for OSR, D&D, PbtA, etc. Well done team!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
