From the advertisement page for Iceborn: She took a deep breath. "Anyhow, since my last report to you I have sent down one of the smaller probes. It landed on a little hill, one about to be submerged by the just-forming sea. Smacked down next to an ice crag which I'm pretty sure is ammonia and carbon dioxide. Telemetry will tell all. The probe reported to me faithfully until an hour and a half ago, and then. . . " She paused to gather up her courage, imagining old Ben's laugh and Dr. Jensen's frown, even though both her mentors were more than six billion kilometers away, ". . .then, I believe something ate it."

The Saturn Game won the 1981 Nebula Award and the 1982 Hugo Award. On long space voyages, role-playing games may save your sanity. . .or lose your life!
