Others have talked about it and I have to chime in about a new Retro Sci Fi RPG, Stars Without Number.
It is a sweet looking game, very well put together. Gotta give kudos to the author. I've been in a Sci Fi mood for awhile now and had considering dusting off my old Traveller books or getting some of the Mongoose Traveller books to maybe run some Traveller at some point in the new year, but after seeing this FREE rules-set I'm really thinking Stars Without Number is what I've been looking for. Old Retro gaming based off the classic D&D system artfully merged with Traveller. Good Stuff!
Plus the author has tons of helpful stuff for a GM wanting to run a Sci Fi Sandbox Campaign!
That was always something I struggled with a bit in my Traveller games of yesteryear. When your players can be on a different planet at the punch of a Jump Drive, ya gotta be on top of your game to make the new worlds seem unique and different. Stars Without Number has tons of features to make doing that much easier.
Oh and you guys know I love mutants and mutations, as an added cool factor, the next big release from the company according to the author is Other Dust, which will add a post apocalyptic Earth and mutations to the mix, Sweet! Looking forward to seeing more stuff from this author/company. Hmmmm now where did I put my old Alternity Campaign notes? Definately some stuff in there I can use!
Good Gaming -B
