Star Wars (RQ6) (Available from holders of the PDF) - Would be appreciative of anyone who might have this PDF and would be willing to take the time to share.

A BRP newbie question about M-Space, which is mentioned alot when BRP SciFi settings are asked for. I tend to go for BRP/CoC as my to go "generic" system for homebrew settings. There's lovely Pulp Cthulhu with the Pulp-O-Meter to make playerchars more resilient. There is Cthulhu invictus for ancient play, Down Darker Trails for Western settings. The only thing I miss is an elaborate source book for SciFi settings.

So here's the question, how much, if at all, is M-Space compatible with CoC? Is it possible to salvage it for BRP/CoC? Or is there too laborous conversion to be done? This includes psionics. Is psionics versatile enough to be used, for instance, for Star Wars "the Force" and Mass Effect's "bionics"?

@Belisarreally easy, Mythras uses the same basic concepts, it's main divergences being initiative, skill list, derived stats. M-Space is a really cool toolbox to build any kind of scifi world you want, and as such is modular and highly modifiable.

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?

I was thinking of Mass Effect, mainly. In the meantime I've skimmed a bit through Mythras and I could absolutely imagine to use it as the generic D100 system for homebrew settings as it seems to be kept more updated than BRP, which last revision was in 2008, if I'm correct.

Update: @clarence, btw looking forward to M-Space and the Companion, I just purchased a moment ago. Looking forward to the books. 😊
