Star Drive is an RPG game world published
(now Wizards of the Coast
) for the roleplaying game Alternity
A detailed timeline is included of human history from the present to the year 2501. Humans have mastered control of gravity induction and spread light years from Earth, befriending other civilizations along the way.
The location focus of the book is The Verge, an star cluster just outside the Orion Arm. Compared to the rest of the civilized galaxy, The Verge is wild and untamed, making it an ideal backdrop for a campaign.
Also, a Star Drive is a device used in the game to traverse light years at a time by falling into Drivespace.
