Heroic Sci-fi Roleplaying for D&D 5E
ALLIGATOR ALLEY ENTERTAINMENT
Written and Designed by Rich Lescouflair
Spacefaring empires collide as worlds strive for an uneasy balance in the universe.
All share one thing in common: The Crucibles. Artifacts of alien origin, their cores power ships, weapons, and civilizations.
A select few learned to use them to warp reality, combining physical form with their mysterious energies.
This new awakening has been called many things: dangerous, miraculous, revolutionary…
Others simply call it….
Welcome to Esper Genesis. a sci-fi rules expansion and setting for 5E written by Rich Lescouflair and published by Alligator Alley Entertainment. We’re really excited to launch this project and we want all of you to be involved. We’ve included a free to download 36 page adventure and content book to get you started. See the Starter Adventure section below.
Our Kickstarter Campaign has ended! We are currently working on post-campaign surveys for our backers and will soon be open to late pledges. Please visit our Kickstarter Page for details and check out this amazing project!
The World of Esper Genesis
We want to create a sci-fi/modern based universe that can be modified to any science fiction type of genre yet still keep the simplicity of play using the 5th Edition rules. Sci-fi epics such as Star Wars, Mass Effect, and Phantasy Star have always inspired me. I wanted to create something new that could provide the same sense of wonder and excitement that I’ve gotten from those amazing creations. With the core rules, we’ll also be introducing ways for adapting cyberpunk, sci-fantasy, and space opera settings into the game, all of which are part of the universe.
That being said, we need input from both new and veteran D&D and sci-fi fans alike to make this game as enjoyable as possible. The starter adventure is limited to a particular theme but incorporates all of the necessary rules to establish a feel for the world.
