Superstars is a delightful take on the Firebrands framework that emphasizes racing competition over bloody conflict. By shifting the scope from the economic fate of an entire planet to individual careers, the stakes are made to feel tight, real, and personal.
Because the game is grounded in the tight holding environment of "Famous Racers Competing" rather than a specific setting, my group is excited to return again and again in different worlds, from Podracing to Wacky Races or Biker Girl Gangs. The introduction of Backgrounds also enhances replayability, providing a wide range of Racing Fiction archetypes to choose from, supporting strong character creation even for players unfamiliar with the tropes of the genre.
The game does what it says on the tin, giving your group the tools to create engaging, dramatic racing fiction over the course of a couple hours. Play it!
