Warriors of the Red Planet (beta), softback roleplaying game
“WARRIORS OF THE RED PLANET is a game of classic pulp, of “Sword & Planet” science-fantasy. If your tastes run towards flashing swords and pistols against a backdrop of alien vistas, soaring airships, and lost civilisations on far-away worlds then this is the game for you.
This roleplaying game is intended to evoke the worlds, as well as the “style” presented in the Martian, Venusian, and other Sword & Planet works of Burroughs, Moorcock, Kline, Vance, and others where no race, creature, or device is too fantastic. Heroic men and women struggle against devious warlords and mad Scientists, and against the ravages of time eroding the frayed edges of their civilisations. The rules presented here are intended to be either a complete game, in and of itself, or to serve as a companion to other fantasy games. They are resources for Referees to pick and choose from, whichever suits their fancy.
The rules are based, in their most basic form, on the original fantasy roleplaying game, and all elements are intended to be mostly compatible with that system, its successive editions and versions, and with other “old-school” “retro-clones” like Colonial Troopers, Guardians, and others.”
