Jump between stars, explore dangerous worlds, battle pirates, loot salvage and fight off a race of killer robots humankind created. Interstellar corporations battle syndicates while a benevolent Imperium guards against humanity's greatest threat: itself.
Icar is a complete space opera roleplaying game set in the distant future. The dark backdrop of war against a robot race wages beyond the safety of a light jump net. There is no race or religion, only two philosophies: those that believe in the natural evolution of humanity and those that believe in technological salvation.

The Core Rules include everything you need to play: rules, setting, sample adventure, equipment, character sheets, maps and more.
The Equipment Index is a batch of handouts that represent things in the game, such as weapons, cars and spacecraft. You don't need it to play but players do love handouts!
The Fleet Setting is a military source book where your players take the role of bionic Fleet Troopers in artificially intelligent powered armor. It includes lots of information on the Droids and enough GM hooks to run a campaign.
