Ubiquity DST

Hi there,

We're starting up a Space: 1889 campaign and the upcoming (English version, a German version is already out) of the rules uses the Ubiquity system (originating with Hollow Earth Expedition, but used by Leagues of Adventure, Desolation, probably some others).

I think I figured enough of the DST stuff out to have a bare bones DST, which I have created with the slug "ubiquity." While I hope to do some more with it (there's no CSS or anything at the present), I think it's useable as is. See, for example


This is a cool feature, so thank you for implementing it.

One concern I have while editing is that if you "click to enter" and do something like hit Tab by mistake, the text entry box becomes a tiny little box that is impossible to enter text in. Is that a known problem?

Also, would it be possible to add the Ubiquity logo so that selecting the Ubiquity system displays this logo on the front page? I’m not sure if it’s possible, but it seems like if someone selects “Hollow Earth Expedition,” for example, that any Ubiquity DST should be available to that game as well. I guess “Space: 1889” games become problematic as a selection, since there are now at least three different rulesets that it’s been published under (the original 1889, a Savage Worlds version, and now a Ubiquity version).

Thanks in advance, and best regards,

    Sorry, deleted the test character linked above, but created an actual character in its place.


    Are there guidelines for how long it will take to get this template approved? All of my other players are ready to use it when it is.

    Thanks again,

    Is there anyone who has created a DST that can give me some guidelines as to how long it took to have it approved? There's really nothing to my DST right now but since it's in limbo, no one else in our campaign can see my character that uses it, let alone use it for their own characters.

    Is this thing on? It's been almost a month, and none of our players can enter their character stats.

    DST is approved. Sorry for the delay.

    Have you got a URL for the Ubiquity logo? I had some (surprising) trouble finding one, everything I found was Hollow Earth related.

    Thanks, Travis.

    The only place I have seen the generic Ubiquity logo is inside the books I have that use the system (Desolation, Leagues of Adventure, Space: 1889). I'm attaching a copy of it extracted from the PDFs.

    Hi guys,

    I tweaked this template some time back (just added some more space for skills and such, really, it's still not fancy), but it has yet to be approved. Any chance of that happening soon?

    Thanks, and best regards,

    Hi Patrick,

    I've escalated to Dashiel whom is currently moderating the DST's for the community.

    Thank you
