Humanity's Last Hope
"Firebase Alpha, say again."
Earth is dead – but in the last years before the catastrophe, the starship Unity was launched. The ship carried a few thousand colonists to the nearby Alpha Centauri system, where they were to build a new Earth on the world called simply "Planet."
Then disaster struck. The Unity was mortally wounded by space debris. In the ship's dying moments, mutiny split the crew into factions, each of which escaped in a landing pod, taking along its own plans for the new world. After landing, the colonists were plunged into a centuries-long struggle against a hostile planet, horrific alien life forms, and each other. Only one faction could win control over Planet and the destiny of humanity. . .
GURPS Alpha Centauri is based on the award-winning computer game Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri. It includes everything you need to recreate the history of humanity on Planet, from the desperate days after the landing to the edge of human transcendence.
Roleplay the colony leaders from the computer game, or create your own characters – scouts and warriors on the new frontier.
Explore the alien landscapes and strange life forms of Planet, as well as the hidden landscapes of the human mind.
A new world. A second chance.
