Desert Moon of Karth + PDF

Karth is a tiny mesa studded moon on the galaxy's edge. The only way down is an antique space elevator to the lawless boomtown of Larstown; a place surrounded by even greater danger and strangeness in the wastes beyond. Survival or salvation is not guaranteed, partner.

Desert Moon of Karth is a space western sandbox adventure zine for the Mothership Sci-Fi Horror RPG.

Harvest ossified coral corpses to live forever. Become an involuntary organ donor. Dodge ancient orbital defenses. Explore sand blown ruins. Hunt the fearsome sandsquid. Ride camels through the dunes. Drink whisky until you’ve forgotten your own name.

Karth's inspirations include Dune, Firefly, Alien, John Carter of Mars, Cowboy Bebop, The Dark Tower, spaghetti westerns, and modern adventures like Hot Springs Island, A Pound of Flesh, Ultraviolet Grasslands, and Slumbering Ursine Dunes.

You'll find plenty to use for your other sci-fi RPG of choice like Stars Without Number, Traveler, or Starfinder with a touch of back alley stat surgery.

Chock full of evocative illustrations and also includes:

  •  10 detailed and dangerous locations to explore including a ship graveyard, camel ranch, organic coral caves, and a decadent shattered spire.
  •  Regional Moon Map and rules for point crawling navigation.
  •  Detailed Larstown map, rumors, NPC’s, prospective jobs, and fine establishments.
  •  4 volatile factions for players to interact with including immortal organ harvesters, tribal park rangers, extinct coral beings, and a colonial boomtown of prospectors.
  •  Evolving encounters based on the day/night cycle (and it’s sometimes night for a week).
  •  Tons of 1d10 tables ranging from creepy prayers, to strange technology, to requested organs, to random drugs.
  •  Rules for sandsquid hunting and a dungeon crawl within one, should you be devoured.
  •  3 detailed dungeon maps, 8 new creatures, the dark secrets of eternal youth and more!

    COMBINING ORDERS  

    Only orders that contain items that are in stock at the time of ordering will be combined, when possible. 

    WE DO NOT HOLD ITEMS

    Essentially it is the same as above. We adore all of you and strive to give you the best possible customer experience possible but inventory tracking not only for us but for our vendors and partners makes this almost impossible to do now. 

    PRE-ORDERED ITEMS

    Pre-order dates are subject to change. We get as frustrated as you do when things come up but this happens from time to time. Sometimes circumstances beyond our control will create delays. We try to communicate via social media and our weekly newsletter to keep everyone as up to date as possible. 

    All items in an order containing pre-orders will ship with the pre-order item once it is in stock. If you would like the other items earlier, please place a seperate order from the one containing the pre-order. 

    We cannot combine pre-orders with existing orders nor combine new orders with existing pre-orders. 

    Pre-orders will be exempt from any type of general sale.
