A downloadable quick start


NOVA is an action packed tabletop RPG coming to Kickstarter on June 8th. When the sun exploded, we built exosuits to explore the ruins of old earth. These machines, called Sparks, are our final hope of ever having a new dawn. 

You are those Sparks. Get ready to suit up.


NOVA uses the LUMEN system, which is designed for action-packed combat, equipping the players with a set of powers that bring the power fantasy feelings of looter shooters to the tabletop.


This is a super slimmed down version of the NOVA rulebook for you to check out before the Kickstarter launches on June 8th! As a quick start, it is definitely not feature complete, and doesn't have any of the beautiful art and layout work you'll find in the final product.

Think of it as a sample. Take a bite, see if you want to order the whole dish.


NOVA's Kickstarter campaign launches on June 8th! If you enjoy what you see in the quick start, consider following the page so that we can have an explosive first day. You might even say we're going supernova ;)


If you want to chat about NOVA, you can grab me on Twitter, or join the Gila RPGs discord! Our community is filling up with fellow designers and players, and you just might find some folks to play a session of NOVA with.


We played NOVA using these quick start rules on the PlusOneExp channel. Check it out!
