Starsiege Event Horizon
The Physical Product
StarSIEGE: Event Horizon (hereafter referred to as SS) is a boxed set. I’ll argue for a moment the merits of this. C&C was released as two hardback books, replicating the feel and style of old-school D&D. A look at old-school TSR sci-fi games brings to mind the box sets of the ‘80’s: Star Frontiers, Space Master, and Gamma World. Each of these contained multiple rule and setting books, along with dice and other play aids; they were also known for their attractive and catchy box art. I understand and wholeheartedly agree with TLG’s decision to release SS as a box set.
The set consists of a box, four copies of the Field Manual (the Player’s Handbook, essentially), one copy of the Operations Manual (analogous to the DMG), one copy of the setting book (Victory 2442), and one copy each (on heavy cardstock) of essential record sheets for the game. The game also comes with two d20’s—although I’m told that the initial print run left out the dice, my order was deliberately delayed so that the dice could be included. The entire package just feels like an old-school box set—great job, in theory, of replicating the old-school feel. (Although I don’t get a wax crayon to color in my dice).
