Jovian Chronicles is a combination science-fiction role-playing game and tactical wargame set in our own solar system in the distant future. It, like all of Dream Pod 9's games is based the Silhouette game engine, a simple, fast and fairly realistic system based on six-sided dice only. The setting is lush, diverse and very realistic (giant robots notwithstanding). Jovian Chronicles began its life as a set of supplements for the Mekton role-playing game.
