Cathedral of the Stars is a strike that explores a ship in the darkness, twisted by time. The smell of bronze doorknobs, corridors of stone, creatures flickering in candle’s light – combined with the void of space, they pose a real threat to any beacons.
The strike itself has a clever structure. Mixing random tables with permanent set pieces allows for intriguing exploration and re-exploration of the derelict ship.
Every description, verb, noun, weapon, tag, letter feels perfectly hand picked to build this dreadful atmosphere. I could hear those incomprehensible echoes of a long forgotten chant. But as they say - in space, no one can here you pray.
Overall, it’s an amazing strike of gothic space horrors.
