Some thoughts on StarSlinger - Light

Its been a while since I've touched upon StarSlinger, the western SciFi setting I was working on for White Star. Swords & Wizardry Light sort of took precedence and then some.

Now, I'm not sure if I've discussed this, but my original thought for what became StarSlinger didn't involve SciFi as much as lighter than air ships and a solar system with three inhabitable planets. Inspired by Spelljammer and Calidar as much as from spaghetti westerns and Firefly, all wrapped up in more or less traditional fantasy.

I think I'm going to revisit that idea in a series of one sheets.

Just thinking out loud at the moment, but open to feedback. And I'm not saying that StarSlinger won't make an eventual appearance using the White Star ruleset, just that Swords & Wizardry Light is my focus at the moment...

Hmmm... maybe a four page OSR sci-fi ruleset titled StarLight...


  1. Western + SciFi mean this to me: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Adventures_of_the_Galaxy_Rangers

    1. I was too busy watching Robotech.

    2. Robotech aired later here in Brazil (love the anime, never read the manga).
      Galaxy Rangers was one of my favorite cartoons back then.

  2. That show sounds awesome, Marcelo.
    Thanks for the link!
