Description[edit]

An expansion to the Solaris VII: The Game World boxed set, Solaris: The Reaches is a sourcebook providing additional data about the outer reaches of Solaris City as well as additional rules. Three double-sided map sheets provide new arena maps:

  • King of the Mountain
  • Hartford Gardens
  • The Mud Pit
  • The Pool
  • The Scrapyard

and an extended map of Solaris City, with the original Solaris City map marked and the Xolara, Burgton, Roland Fields and Bracken Swamp areas outlined.

The book also includes the short story A Matter of Respect, divided into seven parts that are presented at the beginning of various chapters.
