Lancer Core Book
A downloadable game
Lancer imagines a future where a survivor humanity has spread to the stars
after weathering terrible ecological
collapse on Earth -- the end of the Anthropocene as a consequence of unrestrained consumption and poor stewardship.
Lancer features a mix of gritty, mud-and-lasers military science fiction and mythic science fantasy. In the setting, conscript pilots mix ranks with flying aces, mercenary guns-for-hire brawl with secretive corprostate agents, and relativistic paladins cross thermal lan es with causality-breaking, unknowable beings.
Players of Lancer adopt the roles of mechanized chassis pilots -- mech pilots -- comrades together in a galaxy of danger and hope. Some groups will fight for Union, working to rectify the crimes of previous administrations. Others, for a corprostate, working to advance private interests while lining their pockets. Others still will fight for groups acting in opposition to those in power, or for themselves.
Lancer offers deep, modular mech customization, a wide range of player backgrounds and hooks to prompt storytelling, and a system and setting with room for any narrative you and your group want to tell. It’s best with a group of 3-5 players, and can be used to run a one-shot session or persistent campaign.
