The year is 2266 and I am using TOS episodes as a marker or guideline to help the players know what is going on around them...this is right after Where No Man Has Gone Before...
We have two yellow shirts, two red shirts (one communications) and two blue (one medical one science). I am very excited and look forward to this continuing!

Now I dug up one of the pre-written pulp adventures and off we went...we had a blast and I would say we were about half way through the adventure last night.
This led to a discussion about Savage Worlds and in February we might tackle Star Wars with Savage Worlds....

Now this is Sci fi in the Retro Age, we are talking about 1938 here with the divergent history taking place starting in 1931 with Einstein, Tesla and Armstrong going to Mars. Goddard should have gone but became ill before the launch...
Now their arrival on Mars and finding Martians there changes everything because there is tech there that is slightly better than what we have BUT with those two great minds there they figure things out pretty darn fast.
The Vortex system is the same system used in Doctor Who and in Primeval so if you are familiar with those then you are good to go for RA. There are some new traits obviously but that's ok the ones that were added are actually kind of cool.
I am looking forward taking it out for a test ride here real soon!!

Hopefully in February we will be able to get back to our heroes who are running from Teemo the Hutt!
On that note the discussion did turn to doing something with Doctor Who from Cubicle 7....might be fun!

I had the pleasure of having (7) young people at my table today and we rocked back to the eighties by playing some good ole' Star Frontiers...
Now I don't mind the boxed campaign setting BUT come on this is Sci-Fi and supposed to be a little more modern so I used my own setting which is a cross between Aliens and the Honor Harrington novels! We had a mentalist and then some pilots/soldiers and agents.
The kids loved it! I started them out with a briefing for one mission and then switched their mission while they were in cryosleep!! Synthetics that had gone bad at a secret medical lab...what a blast. In two weeks we continue and they all want to continue playing.
We will finish up this op and then I have to go and rob some more from my old Top Secret days looks like! I have a few ideas and they also asked for me to draw my star map...oh boy off to find my notes!
