  2. Yes, I would also use Athletics for that.

    Mythras Combat

    As Raleel says, M-SPACE (and Odd Soot) has rules for simplified combat. And they’re generic enough to use with any genre, not just sci-fi. They use 2 Action Points, 11 Special Effects and no Hit Locations. As my players don’t enjoy combat very much, they prefer this downsized version.
  4. (Sorry @Bill the barbarian)
  5. We have three winners in the giveaway! First Prize: Steve Davies, Illinois, wins a print copy of M-SPACE 1.2. Second Prize: Linda Joslyn, Arizona, wins a print copy of M-SPACE Companion. Third Prize: Nathan Stout, California, wins a print copy of M-SPACE Companion. Congratulations, all three! I will send the books and download links as quickly as possible. Download Free Conversion Sheet For everyone else, as a small thank you for joining, here's a little gift for you. I'm offering the Traveller to M-SPACE conversion sheet as a free download. It contains a nifty way to convert Traveller scenarios on the fly to M-SPACE. Which means, the GM can take almost any adventure for Traveller (or Cepheus Engine) and run it with M-SPACE. No extra preparations needed. Download the cheat sheet here: https://bit.ly/2ALktEp One more thing For those of you who are new to M-SPACE, make sure you check out the free scenario The Triton Incident. It's a neat murder mystery set on a space station, written by Mike Larrimore. Here's the link: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/280146/The-Triton-Incident Thank you for joining the giveaway. Stay healthy, Clarence Redd

  9. Thanks Runeblogger! Good coverage of the contents - and the pros and cons.
  10. MERP had some very nice supplements. I was more into Shadow World, using HERO system instead of RoleMaster. With the massive lineup of supplements ICE had back in the 1980s it’s quite strange how they (almost) disappeared. SpaceMaster wasn’t very big at the time. Traveller and Star Wars d6 were the big sci-fi games if I remember correctly. We ran the SM material as a curious combination of 40% Star Wars, 60% James Bond. Action, investigations and nefarious meta-plots all mixed up in a big, boisterous storytelling cake.
  11. I was a player in a SpaceMaster mega-campaign many years ago. And while the rules were a tad complex for my taste, the campaign was great fun. Of course, as a player I can’t be sure if it was thanks to the GM or the ICE material. Good to see that the books are available though!
  12. I usually end up quite close to Star Wars, without using the actual setting. I also know some people run the old SpaceMaster campaigns with M-SPACE.
  13. It sounds very cool! I would have enjoyed a playtest, but my schedule is full at the moment.
  14. For horror, After the Vampire Wars is spot on. And Odd Soot gets pretty close, even though it’s leaning more towards weird.
  15. I don’t know much about Mass Effect, but from the little I’ve seen it should be a good fit for M-SPACE. And don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions about the rules. I hope the books arrive quickly!
  16. Hi Belisar, I’m happy you’ve heard good things about M-SPACE. You can either use BRP as your base and bring in the sections you need from M-SPACE, or start with M-SPACE and switch any subsystems for corresponding systems in BRP. The rules are similar enough to allow for mix and match. I designed M-SPACE with modularity in mind, so nothing should break down if you combine it with other mechanics. What type of sci-fi are you planning for?
  17. The thread is from mid 2016, when M-SPACE was still a free PDF called BRP Space : )
  18. In M-SPACE 1.2, I’m extending the skill pyramids from Mythras Companion to create simple NPCs at different levels. Along with preset levels for characteristics it works quite well for improvised NPCs. And quick PC generation as well.
  19. Not soon I’m afraid. Reflux is first in line for an update.
  20. Thanks for the heads-up! Link inserted above.
  21. I’m very happy to announce the release of M-SPACE 1.2. The paramount update is affordable colour printing for everyone (or most people, anyway). And I’m also very proud of the beautiful hardback option and the six nifty skill pyramids for high-level NPCs. So, what else is new? This is a minor update. I’ve corrected more typos than I care to admit (thanks everyone who reported errors). Added six newish careers that many have asked for. I've written up a few more sample Extended Conflicts. And spruced up the looks with colourful new artwork to go with the new print options. Better still, the new material will be available for free to anyone with an earlier version of the M-SPACE PDF. You might already have been notified about the new download by DriveThruRPG (otherwise, just click the product link below). Launch Sale 15% But if you’ve been waiting for a softback or hardback version in full glorious colour, now is the time to act. Until next Wednesday, print prices are down by 15%. Here is the purchase link: M-SPACE 1.2 PDF $15.95 Softback $34.00 $28.90 Hardback, premium colour $49.00 $41.65 I hope you enjoy the new version. Clarence Redd
