Now that Space Badger is back up and running, I have been thinking about Space:1889 again. That is one game that I really like, even if it is a bit quirky, and the aerial combat rules are not the best organized. Those are more like you chose what set you are using and go with that. Plus I like to play around with Victorian-era ships, as you have so many different types to play with. I also have a copy of the Jane's Naval War Game from 1898 that I have reworked a bit and used to run at conventions back in the 1990s. I am not sure if I have enough time to pull something together for Gary Con or not, as I still have all of my stuff. Somewhere.

As it is quasi-historical, I do have an immense amount of data on weapons, prices, society, exploration, and who was around at the time. Plus working in some fictional characters from Jules Verne and various movies. Matthew Quigley on Mars? Works for me. Gideon Spillett as a reporter from Mars. Nice. Maybe Teddy Roosevelt looking at a ranch on Mars. I need to think about that one. Some Civil War naval veterans, both North and South, looking to return to the days of their youth, battling with scratch-built ironclads on the Martian Canals. Or an expedition into the Amazon that finds some 60 foot plus anacondas, which makes the Brazilian Government a bit unhappy. There is a lot to play around with in that game.

Or maybe drop some Travellers into an Out Rim version of Space: 1889 Venus or Mars. That would be a lot of fun. I wonder how long it would take them to figure out that the somewhat erect alligator types were actually intelligent? I need to think about that as well.

Greetings Chuck, I will have to check on that with Aramis. Right now, I am working on Gary Con.

The beginnings of that campaign are under my SBRD subforum in the PbP forum, since you were not in the Moot then, and that privilege was only for Moot members. Probably need to check with Aramis about moving it to your own subforum to give you direct sub-Mod control if you want to restart.

Would love to see you restart your 1889 Mars campaign from summer 2014, or a new campaign, although I hope I could use my old PC as he barely saw life before I got too sick to play. Had a fine time making a speech and presentation to some U.S. gov't officials, but never got to follow up on that.
