Useless Snark

Perusing the used shelves at my FLGS this evening, I discovered that someone had sold off a huge collection of FGU's old sci-fi rpg, Space Opera. Being the curious guy that I am, I cracked it open and read a little bit of it. I thought... "I might run this....

....if I hated myself."

Stars Without Number uber alles.

  1. Push to shove I'd use Unisystem (All Flesh Must Be Eaten etc) or GURPS for SF but if someone wanted me to play SWN, sure no problem. Its really good.

    Hand me Space Opera?

    hah hah hah, no.

    I've read most of that line and well its a product of the detail obsessed early 80's RPG s scene . Its got basically everything and its mostly coherent, well thought out and rules rich.

    The way people relate to RPG's is quite different and while S/O would be fine for someone who came in from wargaming or for the detail obsessed nerds of the Pre Internet Era, Its also basically utterly unplayable these days, Or if I may be a bit ghetto, ain't nobody got time for that.
