[19:31] <+MarkSab> Hi, I’m Mark Sabalauskas, and I wrote Return to the Stars, which is an optimistic Science Fiction RPG
[19:32] <+MarkSab> It is “powered by Fate”, so in the lightweight indie narrative tradtion
[19:33] <+MarkSab> I want to give people ways to stories of exploration and adventure in an optimistic space opera setting.
[19:33] <&Le_Squide> Got a link to website or kickstarter?
[19:33] <~Dan> (Please hold questions until the end of the introduction. Thanks! 🙂 )
[19:34] <+MarkSab> So, think Star Trek, with the twist that you come from a post scarcity culture of gamers and geeks.
[19:34] <+MarkSab> So imagine if Kirk were a genetically enhanced cosplayer, or Scotty hung out at maker faires.
[19:35] <+MarkSab> Thanks for the reminder about the kickstarter link, this is my first game, I probably would have forgotten it!

[19:36] <+MarkSab> If you already love games powered by Fate, we’ve added some fun new subsystems that you can enjoy: character arcs, competitions, downtime tinkering, props, and a large selection of space opera skills and stunts.
[19:36] <+MarkSab> This really a hopepunk game
[19:37] <+MarkSab> Star Trek is a huge influence for the game, and probably me personally, growing up on stories that valued science and spoke of diverse people being stronger because they work together.
