Very excited to introduce to you all the multiverse,
sci-fi tabletop game: S T A R F A L L (S T A R  B R E A C H)

The rules and supplements are FREE, and feature 20 unique warband factions to choose from, representing soldiers and specialists from nearly every sci-fi motif imaginable. Galactic Empire vs. Space Marines? Yes. Veer-Myn vs. Terminators? Yup. Judge Dredd vs. Bioshock Big Daddy? Absolutely. Predators vs. Daleks? Yes. Weird. But YES!

Any sci-fi universe playable. Any sci-fi models usable. All sci-fi players welcome. But the game is not just a bunch of fluff: a nice one-off story game. Star Breach is founded on sleek and balanced mechanics that make for easy learning and a genuinely strategic and competitive play experience every single game. Star Breach is truly a sci-fi skirmisher unlike any other. Believe me? Don't believe me? Since the Star Breach rulebook and supplements are COMPLETELY FREE, then why not check it out and pleasantly surprise yourself with a fantastic new game.

Thank you! And yeah... no. Haha. My life can only handle so much "create-an-entire-gaming-system-with-20-different-and-balanced-factions-and-then-release-it-and-support-it-for-free." Hahaha. There's already some decent-ish options for fantasy multiverse gaming, like Frostgrave or SoBH, so that's good!

Crickies! I'm, for one, impressed!

Of course you know, you aren't helping in my cry of 'So many rule sets, so little life...'  ;D

Thanks for the love, Doug! Sorry to make your life decisions a bit harder! Haha. But I do hope you give Starfall a good read through and see it as worth at least a couple hours of your life to get it on the table! If you do, definitely let me know how you enjoyed it! :)

Here's video #1 in our How to Play Starfall Series, which covers the overall structure and flow of the game, building a warband roster and the order dice mechanic.

Sounds and looks really interesting and impressive! Kudo's to you, good sir 8)

I will take some time this weekend to read through your rules, because they might be very relevant to my interests... :D

@Ockman: Thank you, sir! You and I are on the same page as calling it "work", but my wife is still convinced it's a hobby.  lol lol A labor of love! I didn't want to release something that wasn't truly "finished", so I've been hiding and working on Starfall for a good 5 months. Very excited to finally release it!

@Daeothar: Thank you to you as well! I do hope you find the rules and supplements living up to or exceeding the hype. It's an honor you'll be giving them a read/try! Let me know what you think when you do!  :-*

The more i'm reading these rules the more i'm loving the look of this game. I'm a big fan of the order dice system, it just makes games that little bit more random when it comes to planning so it feels like anything can happen.

Also thanks for the youtube clips its good to see the game in action and be shown how to play and not relying on my interpretation of things.... which can be way off sometimes  :D.

Looking foward to giving them a go!! :)

From the quick read through I've done this is looking very good.  I've been wanting a game system to play Dune with along with various other things like AvPvT (Alien vs Predator vs Terminator) and randomly facing off various sci-fi warbands against each other and it looks like this might just do the job.

So glad to hear it, Darathar! I knew you'd love it, and I would be honored to see your models in action for Starfall! Also very happy to hear you find the youtube clips helpful. Up to three vids, but hoping to add more as I can.

In my opinion, the order dice system or similar has become an essential mechanic to a genuinely competitive tabletop game. The system is absolutely ingenious and I am indebted to Warlord Games for creating and utilizing it. I do feel like the Special Actions phase for skilled soldiers as an addition is the perfect icing on the cake. Anyway, when you give Starfall a go, please PLEASE share your warband creations and battle rep! Would love to see them!

Glad to hear it, Giger! Starfall is EXACTLY what you're looking for if you want to mix and match models or play different universes against one another. The 20 different, "generic" factions should definitely be enough for you to find a warband for each and every one of your ideas. Alien=The Hive (or Hunters). Predators= Hunters. Terminators= Ancient Machine. Dune= would fit a number of warbands depending on your build. Have lots of fun! And please keep us posted with pics on what you come up with!

And here's How to Play Starfall pt2, which covers the first three of the six orders that can be taken by soldiers during the order action phase: Down, Mend and Cover Fire.

Closely coming up behind part 2, here's our next video for the "How to Play Starfall" series: Part 3, featuring the Fire, Advance, and Run/Assault Orders.

Get learnt here: https://youtu.be/q5vPORaRIdo

And here's a few stills from the video series that highlight my own Starfall board and warbands! What will yours look like!?
