So, we've stumbled across something kind of unique, Cody will tell you more about it:
"So, when I say the word 'fantasy', what does that mean to you? Is the idea of swords and swordsery the first thing that jumps to mind? Or maybe your famous media, like Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, ironically enough D&D, maybe even some obscure ones like Piers Anthony's Xanth Novels, or the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe? How about Harry Potter? Most of you probably thought Harry Potter.
Now, what do you think of when you think of the phrase: 'sci-fi'? You thought of Star Wars, Star Trek and a select few of you might have thought of Dune, but what about 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Terminator, and so on.
The point I am trying to make is that Sci-Fi is typically a hard sell in regards to fun. Either it comes off as too dense and maybe pedantic, such as 2001: A Space Odyssey or it comes off as too silly, like... Back to the Future. I love Back to the Future, but even I recognize it's cheesy nature.
Sci-fi's biggest problem is that it's until recently, not very accessible, where as fantasy is. Technobabble sounds dumb, and Magic is well....Magic. You don't have to explain it.
Science Fiction is ripe for stories and adventures, provided you make something accessible, and that's what I'd like to show you guys today. I present to you a conversion guide for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition: Fifth Age!"
Fifth Age is a Science Fiction Setting, maybe simple by the D&D 5th Edition Ruleset, with enough vagueness to the setting to tell your own tales! It can be as dense or as simple as you want it to be, and that's what sets this conversion apart from the others: it's accessible for even the most rookie Space Farer!
