The Farscape Roleplaying Game is a role-playing game based on the television series, Farscape, published by Alderac Entertainment Group.[1][2][3] Besides featuring characters and planets from the show, the game added a few more not seen onscreen. There was also an original story entitled "Ten Little Aliens," written by Keith R.A. DeCandido, who wrote the Farscape novel House of Cards.

History[edit]

The Farscape RPG (2002), a d20-based game focused on the sci-fi TV show, was the first d20-based RPG from Alderac Entertainment Group.[4] The Farscape game never got any support, and the show was cancelled not long after.[4]

Reception[edit]

The game was nominated for ENnie awards for Best Graphic Design and Layout and Best d20 Game in 2003.[5]
