Spacer! The Jovian Confederation has delivered the Jovian Chronicles Bundle, featuring the 1997 Second Edition of the tabletop science fiction roleplaying game Jovian Chronicles from Dream Pod 9. In the 23rd Century the Solar System trembles on the brink of war. Earth's militaristic CEGA forces are ready to recapture the Motherworld's restive colonies -- from the Mercurian Merchant Guild and the zaibatsu corporate states of Venus to the powerful Confederation on the moons of Jupiter. With an exciting, original setting that combines hard science fiction and anime-style action, Jovian Chronicles puts you at the center of the struggle for the Solar Nations.

This comprehensive bargain-priced offer gives you everything you need to climb into your exo-armor suit, board an Alexander-class Destroyer, and set out for interplanetary adventure. For just US$14.95 you get all eight titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $56.50) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:

  • Silhouette CORE Deluxe Edition (retail price $12): The Dream Pod 9 universal rules set that also underpins Heavy Gear (previously presented in our April 2017 Heavy Gear Bundle).
  • Jovian Chronicles Player's Handbook 2E (retail $12): This complete 258-page rulebook (1997) details the Solar Nations, organizations like SolaPol and ZONet, the pilots and agents of the Jovian Confederation, and daily life in the planetary settlements and Orbitals.
  • Four vital equipment and vehicle guides: Mechanical Catalogs 1 and 2 (total retail $13.50), Spacer's Guide (retail $5), and the Space Equipment Handbook (retail $5).
  • Two Planet Sourcebooks: Earth (retail $5) and CISLunar Space (retail $6).

And if you pay more than the threshold price of $27.50, you'll level up and also get our entire Bonus Collection with eleven more supplements worth an additional $76.50, including the Jovian Chronicles Companion (retail $7.50); four more Planet Sourcebooks (Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Jupiter, total retail $23); all three Ships of the Fleet volumes (total retail $19) cataloguing spacecraft from the Jovian Confederation and Earth's government, CEGA; the campaign sourcebook The Chaos Principle (retail $6); and the Gamemaster Handbook & Screen (retail $6). NEW! We've added The Art of Jovian Chronicles Volume 1 (retail $15), a gorgeous full-color 220-page gallery of cover art, characters, exo-armors, vehicles, spacecraft, and more from the entire Jovian Chronicles line.
