2400 is lo-fi sci-fi. It’s centuries in the future, and it’s a decades-old modem that screams like a dying robot when it connects to the net. It’s a space ship with an FTL drive, artificial gravity, and a flickering display you gotta tap a few times to see the jump coordinates. It’s hacking something together with whatever cheap materials you have on hand, ignoring the rules until you need them, banging out something that might not sound finished, but definitely sounds fun.
2400 is a plug-and-play toolkit. It’s not just one RPG, but a series of tiny modules. Each fits on two sides of a letter-sized page, easy to slot in or ignore entirely. They’re all for the same setting, unless they aren't. There are seven so far.
- Cosmic Highway: space truckers trying to keep their rust bucket flying
- Inner System Blues: cyberpunk freelancers in a grainy retro-future
- ALT: uplift, AI, and clone operatives in a world without death
- Exiles: twenty weirdos surviving in a xenotech-riddled quarantine world
- Xenolith: an alien crew faces threats from ancient relics
- Eos: human marines fight for the common good in the galactic community
- Project Ikaros: rogue psychics flee—or fight—elite agents
2400 is short and sweet. In the time it took you to read all this, you could’ve started playing.
