History[edit]

Reception[edit]

M Harold Page reviewed Eternal Lies for Black Gate, and stated that "Buy Diaspora if you want to enjoy exploring a Hard Science Fiction universe and don't have much patience for fat rule books and fiddly minutiae."[2]

Diaspora won the 2010 Gold ENnie Award for "Best Rules".[3]
