I understand now. The Gods are real. We are not the masters of the stars. [...]
I will seek kindness among the Corvo; I shall strive for solace in an Iz’kal hive. I will look for beauty in the form of a rampaging Ravager.
And may my life end at home in some far-off, uncharted world, when I’m full of time and memories.
- Professor T. Turner, Human Explorer, 1966 SA
FAITH is a science fiction roleplaying game of epic adventures, where starfaring alien civilizations race to explore a dangerous, unknown universe; while the Gods compete for followers; and the Ravager threaten civilisation as a whole.
It takes place in a far-future version of our universe, where sentient computers and space travel are a reality, and daring explorers carry high-powered plasma cannons and have their brains linked to formidable hacking devices.
Politics: A Delicate Truce
The technological, capitalistic Corvo, and the communal, progressive Iz’kal, aware of the dire consequences of a full-on assault, they try to expand their area of influence and collapse each other’s economy through fierce commerce and Black Op wars in far away planets.
Religion: The Five Gods
The Gods of FAITH are mysterious entities, or natural forces, which give supernatural powers to those that follow them. Becoming a follower is as simple - and as difficult - as living by the tenets of the God’s philosophy.
Exploration: The Labyrinth
Intergalactic travel is possible thanks to the Labyrinth, a network of wormholes - spacetime portals - that allow ships to cover light-year distances in a matter of hours.
War: The Ravager Menace
The Corvo and the Iz’kal managed to maintain a fragile peace, but now a war has sprung in their faces: the Ravager. In recent years, they have quickly become a threat to all other known life forms, forcing the Corvo and Iz’kal to reluctantly join forces against them.
