Kickstarter - Gamma Turquoise: Santa Fe Starport (Alpha Blue / OSR SciFi)




Say what you want about Venger Santanis (and some will ;) - his Kickstarters ALWAYS have amazing (if provocative) art, they are always on time and are a good value for their money.

While I may not have much personal use for Alpha Blue, a starport / mutant wasteland that can be easily ported into White Star IS something I have use for.

That's what Gamma Turquoise: Santa Fe Starport is - starport, mutant wasteland and I expect a whole lotta future inspiration for my White Star gaming. Maybe even port it to Mutant Crawl Classics or Mutant Future.

Basic buy in is 5 bucks for the PDF.
I haven't explored the post-apocalypse genre that often, so this is a big deal to me.  I want to get deep in there and do it right, coming up with weird, outlandish things in a world devastated by cataclysmic forces. PCs will be eating crock-rat and scorpion-skunk roadkill, drinking their own piss, giving hand jobs for precious gasoline, and pretending to worship the glowing faces of a malevolent and insane god that floats somewhere in the yellow smog of the forbidden zone. Not everyone will survive.  In fact, some won't even want to.  That's just the way things are now.   
There are already a lot of cool post-apocalyptic RPGs out there.  Gamma Turquoise: Santa Fe Starport will focus on making your after-the-bomb gaming experience more awesome.  I strive to hit that sweet spot between rules-light and rules-non-existent, where flavor, story, ideas, artwork, scenario seeds, and random tables dominate.  Indeed, this book will have utility far beyond the scenario presented.  You'll want to give this to your grand-kids when they go off adventuring in post-apocalyptic lands. 
I provide you with the finest tools so that YOU can create your own irradiated landscape full of mutated skeezoid scum dogs (tentacled, of course).  But this won't be a lame outline that you have to flesh out.  No, you're in good hands - Venger's warlock hands! 
If you want a lot of crunchy, bloated, system nonsense that has no business being in a toolbox like this, then move along.  Nothing to see here...

    1. My husband has been running a Blake's 7 campaign, and has used Alpha Blue as another name for Space City in the show. Speaking of, we both laughed hysterically at your mention of "Blake Rogers". :D

    2. Awesome! I love Blake's 7. What system does he use?

    3. He's been using the Troll Lord Games "Siege Engine" system from Victorious, and it's worked pretty well.
