Hey. I also dig how you did aspects. Also your use of bolding is NICE.

Thanks! I am taking a page from PbtA games, to bold out important facts/details that will attract a reader to it. 

Aspects were also an experiment, it used to have stats/classes before, but I just double downed on the aspects and scrapped the class into that bin.

I love this, especially the take on aspects - love the d66 table there . Big ups on the gameable lore throughout and the ref/player advice, I wish more games did this!

And you included a quickref table! This does so much right, I wanna see expanded content!

Thanks! I am planning to expand this, I initially wanted to tease a Galaxy Traffic thing, but real life got in the way. 

Will definitely develop it into a grander game once jam ends.

Really nice adaptation for spacefaring science-fantasy. I especially appreciate how you handled aspects; I tried something similar in my first drafts, but couldn't get it to work in a way I liked. This is tidy, varied, and quirky – makes me want to roll up characters!

Aspects were supposed to be just a bonus thing, then you'd still have stats. But I wanted to gonzo things further, and also have a source for complications/advantage for GMs should they want to narratively interpret the rolls instead of usual pass/fail. 

Thanks for the praise!
