Mindjammer – Previews

The following previews of Mindjammer – The Roleplaying Game appeared on the Meme Machine blog during layout work on the game. They’re pre-release versions, before proofing and final page references, but otherwise are substantially the same as their final appearance.

Preview: Genotypes
Genotypes are the “species” of Mindjammer – the various human and hominid species and subspecies, xenomorph uplifted animals, synthetic lifeforms, mechanicals, installations, alien species, and more. This preview showcases some synthetic and hominid (homo variens) genotypes.

Preview: Occupations
Occupation builds are templates you can use when creating your character, providing a pick list of skills, stunts, aspects, extras, and more as archetypes for different occupations and character roles in the Commonality. You can pick and choose from these, or use them wholesale for quick character creation.
