January 2, 2002- Lombard, IL- XIG Games, in cooperation with Pyrite Press UK, is pleased to herald the upcoming release of its first role-playing game, Starchildren: Velvet Generation.

Set in the year 2073, Starchildren: Velvet Generation details the lives of extraterrestrial musicians, known as Starchildren, who came to us from across the galaxy on a Rock & Roll pilgrimage. Sadly, our Earth wasn't as cool as they thought it would be. The people here aren't very happy anymore, and they don't really think as much as they ought to. And perhaps worst of all, the music which the Starchildren ultimately came for- music which saved their world and transformed their society- has become a controlled substance at the hands of an oppressive new power, the insidious Ministry of Music. Undaunted, the Starchildren assimilate themselves into the underground scene and, with the help of their human brothers and sisters, sow the seeds of the glittering revolution to come...

Starchildren: Velvet Generation is set to debut this August at the GenCon Game Faire & Festival, in Milwaukee, WI. Further information will become available on RPG.net, as well as the official site (http://starchildren.co.uk) during the months until then.

Rock!

(Excerpt from the book)

"So that's how it all started, this Velvet Generation you've heard so much about. Mad Mother, champion of the man, was squaring off against our own champions- the artists and musicians who led us to freedom, among them the brilliant Starchildren. These days, we like to think of it as a revolution, an upheaval. If you looked deeply enough into the glittering dust, you'd have seen that our world was struggling to understand just what it wanted for itself, and for its children.

We knew what it wanted, though.

It wanted to rock..."
