    The fantasy version of Starport Scum is pretty close to release, so figured I’d share the cover with you guys.

    Old school goodness, is it really one word though?

    Yeah, Luigi really nailed the retro look. I suppose it should be two separate words huh

    Well the topic title is two words and so is Starport Scum, but it ain’t my call, if it were I would call it:
    The Wargames Website Treasure Tracker.

    😀

    Its also two words in the actual document right now, so I have no idea why I didn’t do that on the cover 🙂 I’ll fix.

    “Heroic adventures on the wargames website for players of all ages using miniature figurines purchasable from the fine retailers advertising on the site”

    Ivan:

    The cover style reminds me of the old Chivalry and Sorcery source books and the Archeon pack. A blast from the past!

    Cheers and good gaming.

    Could this be tweaked to suit a ruined city fantasy setting ?

    Thanks guys!

    Krieghund – I don’t think that should be a problem.

    The “default” style if you just use the tables in the book is to go on a “delve”, roll up a few encounters to deal with, have the final battle against the big bad and get loot.

    That could be in any setting, though the tables will be geared towards a dungeon. But then, back in them days, we considered city-crawls like Big Rubble to be dungeons too 🙂

    Of course, players could ignore all that and just play it like any RPG.

    I am shocked,  shocked you hear, at the prospect of random tables to generate adventures. May I confidently predict further such shocks?

    It’s well known that I hate random tables and abhor their use in civilized sports such as miniature figurine simulation.

    Oh, that’s all right then! Let me know if you change your mind…

    I pine for the days when I played in and ran RuneQuest campaigns. I miss Glorantha and it’s high adventure greatly. It’s been almost three decades since that circle of gaming friends went for a diaspora in the early 90’s and the gaming dried up. It meant more time for miniatures gaming and that is some consolation I suppose, but RPGing in Glorantha was great fun. Sigh. But I’m being maudlin so let’s move on. Nothing to see here!

    Cheers and good gaming.

    Yeah, Runequest is amazing and Glorantha doubly so.

    Best campaign I ever ran was the adventures of two ducks, questing to redeem the honour of their race.

    <sup>The Big Rubble was one of those adventures my crowd didn’t do. Years later I looked through a copy and realised that we had indeed missed a classic. I read the designer notes and was especially struck by the comment that once they’d mapped it The Rubble didn’t seem so Big. There’s something in that about fantasy gaming; if you know too much. it destroys the fantasy. With a solo dungeon crawl, if you map everything do you get lost in detail and lose the fantasy (how many days of iron rations? Not how many days match to the Temple of Set?</sup>
