Out amongst the rocks and ice in the dark of the Kuiper belt hangs the ship. What was once a massive cold-sleep colony ship is now a twisted mass of metal darkness. Spires, towers, domes sprout out from the floating body like malignant growths. A dense haze leaking out from it obscures the light from the distant stars behind it.

What was once a ship is now a temple;  

Board the Cathedral in a new, repeatable Strike for the rules-lite modular sci-fi RPG LIGHT. Each run through the haunted star ship brings you closer to terrible cosmic power with new abilities and weapons. Take your spoils and return to the Cathedral to fight against the mysterious Umbra enemy faction, or into other Strikes for a unique eldritch edge.

This strike is just fantastic. Evocative ideas, beautiful and functional layout.


Cathedral of the Stars is a strike that explores a ship in the darkness, twisted by time. The smell of bronze doorknobs, corridors of stone, creatures flickering in candle’s light – combined with the void of space, they pose a real threat to any beacons.

The strike itself has a clever structure. Mixing random tables with permanent set pieces allows for intriguing exploration and re-exploration of the derelict ship.

Every description, verb, noun, weapon, tag, letter feels perfectly hand picked to build this dreadful atmosphere. I could hear those incomprehensible echoes of a long forgotten chant. But as they say - in space, no one can here you pray.

Overall, it’s an amazing strike of gothic space horrors.
