Solar Starfire


Solar Starfire is the 6th edition of the Starfire System. Started as an "Ultra Starfire update" project in 2011, as this version was developed it became apparent that the goals for Solar Starfire were different from that of its predecessor. When the first version was released in February 2012, it had become a new ruleset with a focus towards story-based gameplay. Solar Starfire is a living edition with many of the rules and technologies having been rewritten over the updates through the last decade, and will eventually culminate in a new background history.

Solar Starfire has an update scheduled for 2023 that will be made available to purchasers of this product.

For those that purchased directly from the publisher, what's the schedule for getting the update?

That will be handled through the Starfire Design Studio as it was before. We will post the details when we are ready to release the update. The best place to watch for that update is our facebook page at

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
