Free League Publishing today revealed that the thrilling expansion Ad Astra for the award-winning postapocalyptic tabletop RPG Mutant: Year Zero will be released on February 13. Ad Astra allows you to leave the devastated surface of Earth and travel into orbit, out into the solar system, and perhaps further still…
Ad Astra can be played stand-alone or as a direct continuation of the Path to Eden campaign in the Mutant: Year Zero core rulebook. The campaign book also includes rules for playing Mutant: Year Zero in space and an overview of the solar system with ideas for further adventures.
Ad Astra is written by Jens Alm and illustrated by Kim W. Andersson, award-winning comic book writer and artist. His works include Love Hurts, Astrid and Alena, the latter of which was adapted into a Swedish film of the same name. The pre-order for Ad Astra is live in the Free League webshop and gives immediate early access to a full PDF ahead of the release.
Through the tiny portholes of the space capsule, you see the city hanging weightlessly beneath the stars – like a huge hanging mobile over Earth, the poisoned cradle of humanity. Drawing closer, it becomes clear that there is something wrong with this star city. You float past large holes, torn wires, and cracked satellite dishes. It seems the Apocalypse reached all the way to the heavens.
