Create a character
who seeks dread insight from beyond cold stars.
Roll strange dice carved by the fell hand of a scholar named Zocchi.
Pair with existing eldritch horror mysteries—for this is but a fragmentary text.

From Beyond Cold Stars is a modification of the rules for What's So Cool About Outer Space?, tailored for tales of eldritch horror. When facing the uncanny, or drawing upon  dread insight, you must roll a die with an odd number of sides (available in sets known as Zocchi dice). The entire game fits on two sides of a letter-sized page of paper.

Recommended for a GM and 1+ additional players.
Based on What's So Cool About Outer Space? by Jared Sinclair.
Further inspired by Cthulhu Dark by Graham Walmsley.

Had never heard about Zocchi dice before. This looks freaking awesome.

Love me some eldritch horror, especially anything created by you, but can you tell us any more about it?

I added some info to the description! (And also updated the rules and graphics a bit, including a typography choice that will probably get my designer badge taken away from me.)

Any excuse for Zocchi dice is cool by me!
