The next game in the Ystari Games line, designed by Guillaume Blossier and Fred Henry, will be available at the end of April!
This is Asteroyds, an exceptional and astonishing game! The players control a spaceship in the middle of an asteroids field. The shivers are varied: race, shoot drones or split into 2 teams and try to destroy the targets of the opposing team.
One can wonder whether the worst adversaries are the other players or these moving celestial bodies. After having cast 3 dice, pilots only have a few seconds to program their ship moves. The problem is that (more or less treacherous) asteroids displacements depending on the dice roll should be anticipated in the same time. The tension is so good…
Native from the human colony of El Kukarasha. She is a fan of the more refined
races, even if she does not snub direct confrontations. She has won the humble but prestigious Criterium Race of Aliveykena seventeen times in a row, and this is a record
Mastress of the Cybernitian Pilots Union, Dolorosa Guell is direct, forceful and stubborn. She imposed herself in her role as a pilot thanks to her proficiency and tenacity. Like all Cybernitians, she is equipped with cybernetic modifications: visual headset for trajectory calculation (designed by Georgi LeFevre), omnidirectional scanner for assisted flying; dermal sensitive mesh for remote control of onboard instruments; hormonal regulation pump.
Through her neural interface, she controls a Koroyev A440 with cockpit interior fitting.
“This race can be used to raise awareness for the causes our union fights for. The suppression of the pilots rights must end. Independent entrepreneurs must grant us fair pay that reflects the risks we take.” Mastress Dolorosa Guell.

This Lambusquin from Parethon, in the Shimmering Belt, he covered himself in glory in many famous competitions, such as the 89th Rings Regatta (second overall, twice the winner of a stage). A good pilot and an excellent navigator, he has a “tough guy” reputation. He loves the chase and is keen on underhand tricks.
Former and eminent pilot of the 9th Tellbarite squadron, he distinguished himself during the War of the Thousand Flowers. Although he was decorated four times for his bravery, he let himself down by being insubordinate and violent to his superiors. He absconded before his trial and fled to the Purple Cluster where he joined the semi-professional circuit. There, he excelled. Soon noticed, he quickly became a permanent fixture in the most dangerous races.
He flies a customised Haersench 400 modified with 4 additional back-side coupling engines.
“This race could never be as tough as the assault on Deersheemaa, with the hellish blaze of the laser battles, the self-guided missile firing platforms and the mine fields.” Yayenek.
He originates from the Lost World. M’Hand holds the speed record of the Champions Event: 1216 K’meyt/Hr. He won a stage of the 89th Rings Regatta (5th overall). He was also first or runner-up in a dozen lesser circuits. He is a “mystical pilot”, preferring the racing to the winning, although he does enjoy the cash prize…
For the Bullabullacub of the Lost World, racing is a religion. And M’Hand is one of the high priests: a M’Handa. His name is actually derived from his position as a priest, further confirmation of his religious commitment. For M’Hand, racing is the only way of communion with his god, a truly sacred act. Consequently, his opponents are sacrilegious creatures placed on his path to test his faith.
He is at one with his god at the controls of a Bleykt-Dacosta M512 which, naturally, is blessed before each race.
“The Great Guik’Lalakalan will know how to guide my trajectory. And if he so wished to ignore me, I always have my super-injected lateral turbines…” M’Handa M’Hand.
Human from the Smirovskaia colony. A rough and ready pilot devoid of any finesse, Memeiev has managed to forge himself somewhat of a reputation on the circuit thanks to his brutal victories. He proved himself in the Grand Prix de l’Art du Triomphe by eliminating two candidates by way of barely legal manoeuvres (and not many of them are illegal in this kind of racing!).
Memeiev is an ex-miner of the Balkan Belt asteroid fields. His colleagues – no angels either – deemed him particularly greedy, reckless and ignorant of the most basic rules. Until the day when, chased whilst carrying stolen minerals, he successfully lost the Investigators of the Stellar Safety Services in an asteroid field. He had to change careers. Garamund Belisaire, rally organiser and a witness to Memeiev’s escape asked him if he wanted to become a racing driver.
Hector flies a Carrier model Domotenia-Junker, a basic but solid craft.
“In a race against death, there’s only one rule: after kick-off, there ain’t no more rules!” Hector Memeiev.
