In the alternate 1920s of Odd Soot humanity has travelled to the stars. Massive star liners cross the voids, with technology from a species long gone. Explorers, colonists, agitators, investigators – all seek new worlds and new knowledge.

The first supplement for Odd Soot is a 15 page PDF written by Alex Greene. It details a new character path for both PCs and NPCs. They possess fantastic abilities – but also weird looks that other people might shy away from.
