I'm not afraid about bullets, what scares me is the speed at which they're incoming.

The Faded Sun trilogy is a series of science fiction novels set in the Alliance-Union universe of American writer C. J. Cherryh. The series comprises the three novels The Faded Sun: Kesrith (1978), The Faded Sun: Shon'jir (1978), and The Faded Sun: Kutath (1979), published by DAW Books. They were re-published in as an omnibus edition in the UK in 1987 and in the U.S. in 2000.

The series consists of some of the earliest of Cherryh's novels, featuring world-building and extraterrestrial races. Both the mri and the regul fulfill John W. Campbell's dictum of "show me a creature that thinks as well as a man, or better, but not like a man." The Faded Sun: Kesrith was nominated for the Nebula Award in 1978 and the Hugo Award in 1979 and was shortlisted for the Locus Awards in 1979. In addition, the other two books in the trilogy were independently longlisted for the Locus Award.

The Faded Sun: Kesrith was originally published as a 4-part serial starting in February 1978 in Galaxy Science Fiction (Volume 39, Nos 2-5)

Another game I ran and loved was Morrow Project. I once tried to convert the background over to CT but failed to get support from my play group. They wanted to do Shadowrun at the time.

I don't know that anything turned me off it. I just fell out of love, ya know?

I haven't touched it since the 80's. It was wacky and I loved the maps (and I grew up in Ohio, which was well covered by them) and device tables and whatnot.

Was the midwest map in GW 3rd? Maybe I had 1st edition.

I suppose my taste in games drifted to the more serious, and it was hard to play GW too seriously with giant bunnies running around with axes. If I want post-apoc, I'll play Apocalypse World.
