[explorers] is a SciFi tabletop roleplaying game in which the players explore various planets, reporting back to HQ eventually.

The game has wonderful, very streamlined rules. It is found in print at https://www.drivethrurpg.com/p....

The system has a nice setting with just enough details to get you into the world, streamlined, simple rules that make playing a pleasure, and a unique handling system for equipment:

Since in the setting of the game equipment is standardized, you don't write it down on your character sheet. Instead, there is a set of playing cards you can print yourself or buy (https://www.drivethrurpg.com/p...), and this makes it very easy to lay out the cards on the table to indicate which ones you have on your person and which ones are stored somewhere (vehicle, base, etc.) and it makes it wonderfully easy to exchange items within the party and still keep perfect track of who has what.

Developing this game and playtesting it for two years was a great experience, and learning the skills necessary to make a printed book and printed playing cards was a new challenge for me.

Here are a few pictures:
