      It’s a relatively new system, “inspired” by Star Frontiers. So it’s a percentile system with a few twists. They’re not quite the Chill stats, no. But definitely similar. The d00lite System that powers FrontierSpace is also the same basic system used for Barebones Fantasy and Covert Ops, also from DwD Studios. I think you’d like it, as it’s nice and light. Skills are (as you might have surmised) great big broad things, almost like Careers in BoL.

          Glad to share, amigo! At least until Everywhen comes out this is likely my go-to SF system. It seems nearly as flexible at BoL and provides solid options beyond its default setting. Much like BoL itself 🙂
