Tales of the Space Princess RPG (Lulu Print Copy)
Tales of the Space Princess RPG E-Book
(Lulu 20% off code: MAYBOOKS12 )
The simple, flexible, rules can pretty much cover all traditional sci-fi settings - John Carter of Mars, for example (from over at The Land of Nod where to the author resides in his custom built atomic capsule).
Some monsters and game mechanics have been cleverly smuggled across from the D&D WotC d20 SRD and camouflaged to fit in with space suited heroes, evil scientists, alien sidekicks, robots, super-science and deadly technological traps - so it's all pure pulp sci-fi adventure with familiar twists.
I've having some fun tonight, randomly browsing the web for videos and images which give me that feel of 30s through to 60s sci-fi. I will now forcibly share some of this with you.
Looking away from thescreen will lead instantly to carbon vaporisation.
"So, Buck, how was that Magnetic Ray?" - very early Buck Rogers film piece (all very odd, but the designs are very faithful to the comic strip)
