2 Minute Read
Jan 1 2018

Star Frontiers steps out of the past and onto the DM’s Guild. Check it out.

Star Frontiers was TSR’s original science-fiction RPG. Inspired by Flash Gordon, and all the other usual suspects, Star Frontiers brought players out of the dungeons and into the stars. Using a 2d10 system, Star Frontiers pushed new grounds for the nascent TSR.


And now you can pick up the original boxed set on the DM’s Guild as part of their print on demand option for classic releases. Much like you can pick up a printed version of Keep on the Borderlands, you can now grab Alpha Dawn–the boxed set–as either a pdf, soft cover book, or hardcover of that’s your preference. This game is amazing, pulp science fiction, alien adventures, all the stuff you’d want from a game called Star Frontiers.
