1936 Flash Gordon Serials
 
Has anyone thought about running a Traveller game based on the 1936 Flash Gordon Serials? No jump Drives, laser guns, swords spears, etc....

Traveller? No... But I have used Cosmic Patrol for that kind of setting.

You mean that someone besides me remember watching the Flash Gordon serials on Saturday Morning? I do not feel so old anymore.

No Ming the Merciless, Dale Arden, or Flash Gordon, or did I miss them?

Yep. Do it all the time. And other settings as well for Mongoose.

Yes I still watch DVDs of the serials still. Brings back many memories. Just thought it would be different to have a campaign based on The Flash Gordon Serials and current technology.

The main station is Ming (the Argos Class Station in the middle, big triangle)

But no Flash or Dale listed, correct. I did not want to make it too obvious, and sadly my players at that time (both in their 60s) did not notice.

As an FYI, the dotted lines were supposed to be orbits, and the number codes positioning coordinates / vector approaches. The shape of the item also indicated what sort of station or planetoid/asteroid the thing was. The station classes are from some other things I have (posters and minis that I really, really want to actually use in a game, not just look at sporadically!) The blue are ice rocks - where they are getting fuel from. Other big chunks were carved out for maintenance hangers or mined for resources. Several stations scattered all over that part of the belt at the Cyan system.

I never saw the Flash Gordon serials. He was a newspaper comic strip when I was a kid in the 1950s.

Check out YouTube for Flash Gordon. Get the Buster Crabbe ones.

Edit Note: Methinks that this discussion has triggered a planet Mongo in my sector. Now, where to put it.
