John Carter of Mars

The movie release of Burroghs pulp saga is getting closer.
I am currently reading the original series. I never read these as a child and i kick my self for passing these by. I finished the first and just bought the 2nd book from Borders. I am giving some serious thought to doing a sword and planet game as my next campaign. I think any of the D&D versions can be used to simulate the genre easy enough. I know there there are source materials already out there also.

There is a lot more out there if you look for it.

Think of a world not of magic but of lost science. I picture the game playing somewhat like Thundar the barbaian.

Still looking to get a G+ game going on a weekly basis. My hours seem to be out of synch with the rest of the google plus. Going to try some midday offerings over the next week.

  1. The movie seems to be taking a hit at the box office, but I thought it was great. I've seen it three times -- most I've seen one movie in the theatre since PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN. I'd love to have some company do a Barsoom RPG right...
