Welcome to Fading Suns

A New Dark Age

It is the dawn of the sixth millennium and the skies are darkening, for the suns themselves are fading. Humans reached the stars long ago, building a Republic of high technology and universal emancipation — and then squandered it, fought over it, and finally lost it.

A New Dark Age has descended upon humanity, for the greatest of civilizations has fallen and now even the stars are dying. Feudal lords rule the Known Worlds, vying for power with fanatic priests and scheming guilds.



What is Fading Suns?

Fading Suns is a saga of humanity's fate among the stars — a science fiction game of heavy combat, vicious politics, weird occultism, alien secrets and artifacts, and unknown and unmapped worlds. And the mystery of why the suns are fading hangs over all.
