Barsoom-esque RPGs

There is also Matt Slepin's Under the Dying Sun, a supplement for Spellcraft & Swordplay. He describes the setting as "a grim Sword & Planet setting, heavily inspired by the work of Leigh Brackett with a dose of the Adult Westerns of the 1950’s and the Spaghetti Westerns of the 1960’s." So not exactly the same vibe as Barsoom, but interesting nonetheless. A free playtest version is available here.

What the..? 20+ posts and no-one mentions Dark Sun?

Get a copy of The Wanderer's Journal and use your rules of choice. That book alone gives you a fantastic setting, directly inspired by Barsoom. Worth a look just to mine for ideas.
