    About the adventure

    Welcome to Sparr. A frozen world with a violent past. The people here a proud part of the Union; their bloody history of clan violence is only a footnote in sagas of glory and prosperity. Sparr's Technoshamans, magicians of circuitry and engineering, are unparalleled in their technical skills. But Sparr has a secret. A shattered god, long frozen in the ice, begins to awaken. An ancient injury demands retribution. WHAT WILL YOU DO, LANCERS? LANCER features a mix of gritty, mud-and-lasers military science fiction and mythic science fantasy. In the setting, conscript pilots mix ranks with flying aces, mercenary guns-for-hire brawl with secretive corporate agents, and relativistic paladins cross thermal lances with causality-breaking, unknowable beings. The game is designed to be rules light and narratively driven outside of your mechs and combat gets more strategic once you are in the pilots seat. Lovers of indepth strategy and crunchy progression mechanics will find plenty to love here. Lovers of roleplaying should find plenty of opportunities to lose themselves as one of the teeming multitudes of humanity in the far-flung future.
