I did a few of these a week back using Pulp-o-meter;













Thought the group might like them

Cool, Brad's released it!

I've been helping him test it for the past few months (it's been an incredible effort on his part), and I wasn't sure when it was going to be OK to talk about it.

I've been building some of these for our group with tie-ins to our adventures over that time, they've really enjoyed them.





These are both from a very early version of the tool. Brad has added a lot to it since then.

I could only wish for a version where I could do my own magazine title - just for the shock/humor value, I'd find the pulpiest submissions to Freelance Traveller that I could, including reprints from the website, and then do a cover with the Pulp-o-Mizer.

How about something like this? (Perhaps with a 'FAR' edited into the image in front of the 'FUTURE').

(I couldn't figure out how to make the image appear in the post).

This really deserves a bump for more current readers.

There is also a bunch of covers from the early Astounding magazine on Project Gutenberg to work with as well. You also have a large number of covers from the various Robert E. Howard stories on Project Gutenberg Australia. With his Western stories you could mix cowboys and aliens really easy.

It is a cool site, and I was a Patreon for a while with his site but after months of nothing new coming out, I switched to other artists that were still doodling. In fact, I do this for Ian Steed originally because it was for his rabbit treats and, having had rabbits, I am a sucker for that. But I also really enjoy his artwork as it is what I think a good modern take on Classic art.

And I've used the Pulp-o-mizer for some of my Traveller game "covers".

Back in the day, we didn't have no access to slick picters. Heck, if you were rich, you could just about afford a cal-cu-later! Most of us nerds made do with out dern slip-sticks. <Harumph!>

We put the graph into pencil and paper RPGs!

Honestly, this looks interesting--and fun!
