    Help with the HELLAS RPG-Starship scales/Rules

    Hi all can anyone give me a hand with the way starships are handled in HELLAS? I am trying to workout how scale works, they have a table which shows size 3 to 6 is Vehicle and 7 to 10 is capital (this is in 2ed Hellas). In the wine dark void starship book they have a Ship Size that is a scale of...

    Hellas - I have a few questions!

    Ok, so I'm interested in Hellas but I have some questions as well. What's the difference between first and second edition? Are the supplements compatible for second? What do the various supplements bring to the game? Are any of the supplements rolled into the second edition? The simple stuff...

    what are the tropes of planetary romance?

    I get the basic logic ("give Edward Said an aneurysm") and the most prominent examples (Martian princesses, Venerian jungles) but I can't find a comprehensive treatment anywhere - TVTropes is less helpful than I expected it to be.

    Savage Worlds ... MARS

    While I was in my local shop today I spotted the savage worlds setting MARS. My attention was grabbed by the cover so I had a quick flick though. What I saw really interested me. Although I didn't buy it (I'm not a big savage world RPGer) I thought I'd post here to find out what others...

    Under the Moons of Zoon

    Slightly surprised this hasn't received more attention, it's a sword and planet rpg, completely free, available through here http://jrients.blogspot.com/2007/07/free-sword-planet-rpg.html To me, it seems a really nice little game. Good feel for the source material, simple and straightforward...

    Planetary Romance

    When I was in the 5th grade (and this was before the previous Ice Age, mind), I read A Princess of Mars, by E.R. Burroughs (in a cheap, Book Club edition with a Frazetta cover, no less). This book absolutely blew me away. And it’s one of those few things—like seeing the original Star Wars—that...
