Rules

A note about references

On this site, when I refer to rules or setting material from specific books, I’ll mark the reference so we know where it came from. Here are the shortcuts I use for that:

CESRD = Cepheus Engine System Reference Document, Samardan Press

CD = Cepheus Deluxe, Original Printing - September-October, 2021, Stellagama Publishing

TSAO = These Stars Are Ours!, Revision 2, Stellagama Publishing

Things to read

Want to know how to play this game? Maybe you’ll find one of these useful.

UPDATED: Cepheus Deluxe Personal Combat Quick Reference Version 2

Or perhaps the Cepheus Deluxe Character Sheet

Official Rulebooks Cepheus Engine Rules The Terran Borderlands campaign has switched from Cepheus Engine to Cepheus Deluxe. So this isn’t relevant anymore.
