The theme that resonates most chillingly with our primal sense...

What a beautiful way to die – as a falling star.

Of all the potential settings for horror, surely the darkest expanses of deep space are the most suffocating in their capacity for cold sweat dread.

Great review. I enjoyed the fantasy original but the fact it was nothing but a thinly-dressed dice fest let it down. If I understand how the motion tracker thing works correctly, that's a stroke of genius both upping the level of decisions and the theme at the same time.

Oh it's 100% a dice-fest! But sometimes that's a massive plus. If say for example.... you just spent a month playing a slog of a campaign game with endless drawn-out card based faffing.

The motion tracker conceit signposts the difficulty of each encounter but if you're playing RAW then they're meant to stack in ascending order. Shuffle them up though and you have a cool thematic hint as to which of your crew to take point before flipping into the fray. There's more agency across the board than in EtDC- but never a huge amount. It's still more of a wild spook-house ride that will most likely come to a grisly end.

And that's awesome.
