Whither Mars?

I'm still pondering my own Mars RPG though Warriors of the Red Planet sounds very promising. To be honest I'm getting a bit bored with the continuous regurgitation of the D&D paradigms. If I do move forward with the my own take on Mars it will likely be first as a tabletop skirmish game.  My RPG would likely be a skill based game not a class/level D&D derived game.

The Humanspace Empires play by email game has slowed down a lot. Harv has collected some useful intel and fired his weapon once....

Playing the Game

After months of reading about old school RPGs I'm finally going to play one. I've signed on to TheDrune's HumanSpace Empires playtest game, SpaceSwords & Glory. The rules are an old-school mash up of D&D and the original Tekumel game, Empire of the Petal Throne adapted to grand retro Sci-Fi space opera.

If that sounds cool head over to his blog and check out the PDF.
