Space Stuff

So I'm making this page where my sf posts go as they went down well and im gonna do more. Shadows in the Stars is my universe. Ive been replicating eras of it with various games. BRP was my main game for this in the 80s and 90s. I used a system that was increasingly more like BRP in the 80s that I totally abandoned it in favour of BRP. Start Frontiers was my game of choice in 80s rather than traveller which i love and hate. TOP SECRET SI and GURPS were influential too. I always wanted to do A pulp verse with a flash gordon type solar system or a steam punk solar system one like Space 1889 game. Larry Niven and Ringworld game a big influence also. Ian Banks probably more influence last 20 years. My old cyberpunk game fitted in too and was mash up of cyberpunk game, autoduel, cyberworld, BRP and Dark Future. I liked some ideas in dark conspiracy game but wanted humans alien contaminant free till a century away from today. Dr who is also full of one off utopias with different tech. 2000AD comics were awesome for twisted antiheroes and insane graffiti covered grimy future worlds.

The final incarnation or version of my sf game is not set what game system I use but modified BRP with hit locations and stun damage system may feature. Humanoids will make 95% of threats worth shooting at so locations easier to manage. The odd starfhish or or shoggoth shouldnt be a problem.

Gamma World
Some of my SF ideas and post apocalypse stuff converge and strapped onto 2nd ed TSR Gammaworld I first owned in 1984. My gamma world has some stuff from my sf verse. Gammaworld is kinda a more exiting more gonzo everything at once mess. Both have my Brian Aldiss/Gordon Dixon creepy human evolution. My own apocalypse era had more undead necrovores and less talking animals.

Call of Cthulhu in Space actually the project that got me gaming again hardcore in 2012. Metropolis and utopian writing since Plato are an influence. So my cthulhu-metropolis although deco punk has many themes of utopia vs dystopia. Metroplolis is also a cyberpunk transhuman work about cyborgs, replicants and transferal of of conciousness. Android Maria is a 1920s termanatrix. Dr Who vs cthulhu is pretty much a real thing (Image of the Fendahl).

My d20 Gunboats and galaxies
My game inspired by starships and spacemen and kinda fits in with my Shadows game. Im also using spaceship combat like buck rogers but mostly Star Frontiers Knighthawks by 80s TSR.
