  • More than just Greeks in Space, Hellas is about heroics, epic speech, feasting, poetry, and beseeching the aid of the gods. And the gods do respond: "The player characters in a HELLAS game are not just the Heroes of the story; they are the favored of the gods, and the Fates have woven their futures into the tapestry of time." Can you achieve your Destiny or will you succumb to your Fate? This campaign is really about exploring the Hellas game mechanics, particularly: amassing and using Hero Points and Glory Points, and possibly achieving apotheosis.    Hellas Flavor That I...

  • Retrostar is a forthcoming new role-playing game by Spectrum Games. Please don't bother googling it, it has not been released, yet. There is only a single page of promo text about it on the Internet so far. So, the rules are certainly a work in progress. One of the writers is going to run a short game at GenCon this year... and here you get a chance to see it in action even before that! Retrostar deals with the brand of science-fiction shown in live-action TV series of the 1970s, most of them "cult favorites", from Space 1999 to The...

    The Battle for New Phobos

  • GM: Paul Vogt
  • System: Cosmic Patrol
  • Last update: 23 Aug 17:46
  • Day: Thu, Sep 22, 2011
  • Time: 01:00AM UTC
  • Length: 4 hours
  • Cosmic Patrol is a game of space opera and pulp in the vein of Star Wars and Flash Gordon. Although organized as a gm-less or shared narrator style game, I will be running it as a GM while still giving a great deal of narrative control to the players. This game is a test game for myself to see if running a game from a distance will work for myself and my friends.

  • ...Meanwhile, back along the inner hull, Zayit, Sparks and Tangerines were making their way steadily, if a little slowly because of the extra gravity, to where they believed the Bridge should be. The Captain was the first to climb in, and looking down the barrel of a disoriented Dunsany's zap...

  • "...For days, the Oort Corps ship searched, and while ghosts would appear on their long-range scanners, there was no tangible sign of the legend. And then the crew came up with the plan to make it appear that their rocketship had had an accident and was now floundering in space....
