    Pulp is one of my favorite settings in our hobby. To help beginners starting their adventures, I wrote a series of posts about the whole genre. The series will cover rule sets, sources of inspiration and miniatures for specific genres. The first post tries to explain what pulp is. Or more specific, my understanding of the term. I hope you like it and as always, any comments are appreciated!

    Very cool.

    I consider my 15mm fantasy games to be quite pulpy.

    That’s a pretty good overview of Pulp. I think much the same as you. The genre can’t be horned into a narrow niche. It covers everything from Cthulhu to Bond to Indiana Jones to Conan the Barbarian to Buck Rogers to The Shadow or Fu Manchu. A good set of rules for Pulp will play all those different stories, one as well as another. I’ll be following along, thanks posting.

    regards, Bill
