    Not sure how I feel...

    Take a page from Traveller — heroes are retired old farts in their late 40s and 50s. Besides, don’t nubile young things go for accomplished older adventurers? 😉😄

    The Chances of Anything Coming from Mars...

    It had been becades since I heard Jeff Wayne’s album in high school. But “ULA” reads too much like an academic institution. 😉

    Veteran Pregenerated Characters

    “Ariel! Ookla! Riiiiiiiide!” Gee, Magic World seems to generate a lot of love and commentary for an unwanted, discontinued game line.

    The Titan Incident

    Where is Sean Connery now that we need him? Always good to see more BRP sci fi.

    How far is too far?

    Beyond the Mts of Madness

    The concept has legs. I can totally see an Oven Mitts of Madness (what is consuming the great chefs of Europe?) supplement, followed by Baseball Mitts of Madness (who has 18 tentacles and catches flies?) as Mythos forces conquer the Earth.

    Gather the troops from Agony and Ecstasy and send ‘em after those aliens. “Ersatz Avengers, Assemble!”

    What Sort of Campaign?

    Treasure Planet?

    What Sort of Campaign?

    Family members have told me they’d like to play a game that is sort of like Star Wars Meets Lord of the Rings. Sounds like I will need to choose a cinematic rules set, but what would such a genre-bending setting look like? So far, I’m thinking Sword and Planet, something like Burroughs’ Carson of Venus series, although Thundarr the Barbarian might fit the bill as well. Maybe with some alien steampunk tossed in. Any thoughts or suggestions? As far as system I am debating Hero System or Mini Six. My initial impulse was Classic Traveller, but it is far too lethal for Buck Rogers/Flash Gordon hijinks. BRP has lethality issues as well, and while Mutant Future might fit the tone its zero to hero character progression doesn’t. Sword and Planet protagonists are Big Darn Heroes from the get-go.

    Fantasy economic system - starting money question

    Money is often based on metals but need not be. It could be pieces of polished shell, beads of volcanic glass, small plates of jade or other semi-precious stone, thick dried leaves of a certain plant, discs of bone or horn. Your medium of exchange just needs to be fairly rare, possibly pretty, and considered valuable. And, of course, portable. In ancient Sumeria, they issued letters of credit in the form of clay tablets. So even mud can be money, depending on the culture.
