Stargate: SG-1 Roleplaying Game is a role-playing game based on the TV series Stargate SG-1, released in 2003 by Alderac Entertainment Group.[1] The game, based on AEG's Spycraft, uses the d20 System. Since Sony did not renew AEG's contract to publish the game, it is now out of print.

History[edit]

The Stargate SG:1 RPG (2003) followed Alderac Entertainment Group's publication of the Spycraft d20 espionage game, and was entirely compatible with first edition Spycraft.[2] Stargate SG:1 started receiving season guides and other supplements but MGM decided to pull AEG's license; thus, the RPG only covered the first two seasons of the show.[2]

Core rulebook[edit]

The core Stargate SG-1 role-playing book is a hardbound and full-color 488 page volume. The content includes:

  • summaries of the television show's first six seasons
  • information on some worlds previously visited by SG-1
  • information regarding Stargate Command and the Cheyenne Mountain Complex
  • details on the Goa'uld, including their history, breeding information, types, and common psychology
  • skills, feats, and gear for character ability development
  • details for Game Masters on building worlds to visit, races to encounter, and otherwise constructing adventures in the Stargate setting

Supplements[edit]

AEG have published several supplemental books for the Stargate role-playing line:

  • Fantastic Frontiers (2003) and Friends and Foes (2004), detailing seasons one and two of the series
  • False Gods (2004), giving details of the Goa'uld System Lords
  • First Steps (2004), a collection of worlds and adventures. These are created by AEG and not taken from the series.
