Lancer is a tabletop role playing game centered on shared narratives, customizable mechs, and the pilots who crew them.

Lancer features a mix of gritty, mud-and-lasers military science fiction and mythic science fantasy. In the setting, conscript pilots mix ranks with flying aces, mercenary guns-for-hire brawl with secretive corporate agents, and relativistic paladins cross thermal lances with causality-breaking, unknowable beings.

Players of Lancer adopt the roles of mech pilots — comrades together in a galaxy of danger and hope. Some groups will fight for Union, working to rectify the crimes of previous administrations. Others, for a corpro-state, working to advance private interests while lining their pockets. Yet others will fight for groups acting in opposition to those in power, or for themselves.

Lancer offers deep mech customization, a wide range of player backgrounds, and a system and setting with room for any story you and your group want to tell. It’s best with a group of 3-5 players, and can be used to run a one-shot session or persistent campaign.

Mission: An asteroid mining outpost has gone dark, the mining company has hired you to investigate the cause of the communication cutoff and retrieve the NHP (Non-Human Person, think AI without the A)
Other Notes:
  • Premade characters will be provided.
  • Recommend watching “Tabletop RPG-Lancer: The Intro People Probably Need” on YouTube.
  • There is a free version of the rulebook on their itch.io page as well.

    Excited to play! I have two players from my regular group who’d love to join. I’m aware the system’s best at 3-5 players, but if it is possible to add another, could we? If it’s someting you’d rather not do, that’s fine – I’ll have both signup incase another player has to exit anyways. Thanks for running this!

      I’d like to keep it open for new players and I just had someone fill the last spot.
