Congratulations, Spacer!

You have been selected to be a part of the permanent crew of your world's newest space station, intended to help establish your species' presence amongst the stars!

Cosmic Connections is a cooperative story-telling a role playing game for 2 or more players, based on the Four Points RPG System, that can be played with or without a GM - or Narrator. In Cosmic Connections, you and your fellow players take on the role of spacers tasked with the construction and maintenance of a new space station, as well a variety of diplomatic, scientific and just plain weird missions. It is inspired by shows and books like Star Trek: Enterprise, Deep Space Nine, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet, and is both a spiritual and mechanical successor to previous Four Points games: Come Rain Come Shine, QuestFellows and Outward Bound.

About Cosmic Connections

Cosmic Connections features CRCS's shared character pool and focus on sustainable community-building,  OB's themes of weird sci-fi adventure, and QuestFellows' randomly generated "Challenge and Opponent" mechanic, here named Tight Spots.
Cosmic Connections also includes the CODEX.
A collection of data on the various other alien species inhabiting your Characters' local galactic sector, the Codex is written in an alien code for you to translate. Your player group can use the pre-written and illustrated Codex entries that come with the game, or use the included prompts and art assets to make your own!

  • Quickly and easily create your characters and add them to a shared pool, for anyone in the group to pick up and play.
  • Use prompts and roll tables to collaboratively flesh out your game's setting, including your home world and space station.
  • Complete Missions, overcome Complications, get out of Tight Spots, Trade for Assets, and build new Additions to your station.
  • Translate Codex entries, meet new alien species, or even create your own.

This looks lovely. I love Come Rain Come Shine from Penflower Ink team.

I'm sure Cosmic Connections is as amazing too!

Thank you very much on behalf of the whole team (just me 😅)
