Space Fantasy and Science Fantasy are relatively rare among the genres for Roleplaying Games. A mix of fantasy and science fiction elements.

But Troika!, Starfinder, Spelljammer, Bastionland and other rpgs fit this mould . And maybe even Star Wars!

Related Guides includes Space/Science Fantasy PDFs, the Sci-Fi Random Gens Guide and Generators Guide for Fantasy.
