Oh, this could take a while:

GURPS Transhuman Space
Traveller (currently GURPS, soon to be republished by Mongoose)
Metamorphosis Alpha (4th Edition)
Shock: Social Science Fiction (indie)

And those are the ones still in print, off the top of my head. If we delve into the past, the list could get longer. Just check out the Wikipedia list (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_role-playing_games_by_genre#Science_fiction_genre).

Gotta love the HOL. How could you not love a game with skills like:

Making Sharp Things Go Through Soft Things That Scream and Bleed
and
Whining Until You Get What You Want

Classic bloody humor.

How about Warp War? It is a little game made by Steve Jackson whilst he was still with Metagaming. (May that beast stay dead!)
Belive it or no, I still have parts of the game, including the 'no dice needed' attack template.
Anybody else know of a thirty minute game?

I think the one I own and would most love to actually convince my group to try is Etherscope.

I've always wanted to play a good steampunk game. I was supposed to be involved in a Castle Falkenstien game but the GM couldn't find enough players interested in that level of role playing (it takes a certain type of player to even want to delve into Falkenstien.)

Moritz
08-12-2007, 04:08 PM
Steampunk is an idea I've always loved. However, it is so difficult to simulate or convey it. This is only something I could do as a game within a game, IE Players are jaunted to an alternate reality/past where they are in need of doing X to secure their present. It would allow me to express what little I know of the genre' and still keep the instance short and sweet enough to maintain the suspension of disbelief. Otherwise, my non modern, non fantasy, non sci fi games come to a grinding halt after a few sessions.

Chaosium is offering Worlds Beyond (http://catalog.chaosium.com/product_info.php?products_id=995) for sale on its new website. I've been wondering whether I should plunk down $35+ bucks for it. (My current fantasy is running a science-fiction game with Runequest rules ... although I wonder if just converting GURPS Ultra-Tech and Bio-Tech to MRQ might be simpler and more cost-effective.)

Well the list is also missing Hunter Planet, Time and Time Again, and Space Patrol. [And that was without digging in my closet.]

Since someone mentioned steampunk, I'm looking forward to SJG getting Girl Genius out the door some year.

The list is largely from memory.

I confirmed titles and jogged loose a few of those memories using Amazon and Noble Knight Games (a great resource of out of print RPGs as well as a great store).

Darn. I wanted to be the first one to mention Teenagers from Outer Space.

I believe that one has the gun skills:

Gun
Big Gun
Really Big Gun
Really Really Big Gun
Don't Point the Gun at my PlanetI'm not exactly sure of the usefulness of the last skill in that game's context, though. :)

I GM'ed and played in Gama World for a while when it first came out. Though the various GURP SF books are among my favorite sources when I start a new SF game.

This site has been active since like 1994. I found Sept/2007 on the bottom of this page.

http://www.darkshire.net/~jhkim/rpg/site/about.html

Mr. Kim's site has been reliable for years. His project is overwhelming large, and frankly, I don't know how he finds the time if he has a regular life.

I am kind of jealous of him. I always dreamed of doing something like this, and then when I stumbled onto his site, my balloon busted. Why bother now? His site is so complete and full of information.

Although, I have contributed some information to him and he has incorporated into his site, so I know that he takes all the help he can get.

BattleTech isn't a RPG; it's a board game. However, Mechwarrior is the RPG derived from BattleTech and it is listed on the site. :)

Post Script- Before anyone gets their panties in a twist...yes, it can be argued that BattleTech is a boarderline RPG. However, under most accepted definitions of a RPG, BattleTech doesn't make the cut. ;)

Mulsiphix
12-30-2007, 12:12 AM
Agreed. I was hoping to see it since Mechwarrior could be used with it to really flesh our a setting but for most intents and purposes, not to mention most common setting, it is a Wargame. Glad MechWarrior made the list. Thanks for the link Drohem :D

12-30-2007, 04:02 AM

Well, perhaps not panties... but my pilot suit is definitely bunched up.
BattleTech is not a boardgame, laddy. It's a miniature(s) wargame. Technically.
Enough people know that 'technically' MechWarrior is the RPG expansion to BattleTech, RoboTech, AeroTech, Etc.Tech, so that we seldom have to make such a distinction for the plebians. It's an understood implication. When Battletech is listed under "RPG," most of us know what was meant - those who don't, have little trouble finding out.
Let's move on, now, Shall we? :cool:

p.s. It 'is' a nice list, by the by.

1. All Tomorrow's Zombies - are you referring to the plot/world/campaign setting Eden put in one of their AFMBE books... or has this been expanded into its own supplement/accessory book? I am hoping for the latter. BIG All Flesh fan. D. Stoelting is a friend of mine here in South Bend. He turned me on to Eden's works about 5 or 6 years ago.

2. Battlestar Galactica? I could not find this one. Who produced it? When? Is it old skool or based off the new series?

How can you go out of your way to clarify BattleTech when you don't even know the universe?! BattleTech was created by FASA in 1984. In 1986, Palladium Books published Robotech RPG (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robotech_%28role-playing_game%29) based on the Robotech series (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robotech). The BattleTech series includes: BattleTech, CityTech, MechWarrior, AeroTech, BattleSpace, and BattleForce. Extended game systems include: Succession Wars, BattleTroops, ClanTroops, and Solvaris VII.

Skimming through the posts I noted this . . .

Steampunk is an idea I've always loved. However, it is so difficult to simulate or convey it. . . .

If I'm correct I've seen a d20 system supplement that was made for steam punk - tended to HG Wells / Jules Verne etc. . .
(Though I forget the name . . .)

How are HG Wells and Jules Verne settings considered steampunk?

I guess you might consider them that as they show Time Travel, travel to the moon and undersea journeys in a sci fi light while using Victorian / pre-Victorian technology.
I believe this is some of the basis of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen - with all of the period scifi technology.



Steampunk http://http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steam_punk (http://http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steam_punk)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Steampunk is a subgenre of fantasy and speculative fiction which came into prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s. The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century, and often set in Victorian era England—but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy, such as fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or real technological developments like the computer occurring at an earlier date. Other examples of steampunk contain alternate history-style presentations of "the path not taken" of such technology as dirigibles or analog computers; these frequently are presented in an idealized light, or a presumption of functionality. Steampunk is often associated with cyberpunk and shares a similar fanbase and theme of rebellion, but developed as a separate movement (though both have considerable influence on each other). Apart from time period and level of technological development, the main difference between cyberpunk and steampunk is that steampunk settings usually tend to be less obviously dystopian than cyberpunk, or lack dystopian elements entirely.

on That note, check this place out. This guy builds steampunkish/clockworky gadgets... like Laptops. Beautiful, exquisite, and if you like this genre, you will adore these pics he has on his site of his projects. His victorian-techno-savvy names for his gadgets are pretty funny, too.

Never saw this one either... interesting maybe.


It is some time in the early 26th century AD according to the old world calendar. However most alive now call it the 4th century AV, denoting 400 years after the opening of the vortex. Much has changed in the world since scientists unwittingly and abruptly ended the era of steady logical scientific human progress. Earth is now a place of science and magic, of humans living side by side with aliens, mutants, and creatures of legendary origin. This is the world Of APOCalypse 2500 a new R.P.G. from the mind that brought your The Virtual Magicians. Drive a hover car and do battle with a dragon in the land of dwarfs. Explore the strange new super continent of Neo-Pangaea or sail the Pan Pacific ocean some 13,000 miles across. Become a feudal lord and command an army of mythical beasts armed with plasma rifles. It is all possible in this exciting new world where magic and legend has returned to humankind's future.

Actually its a vary different than rifts, but some of the rifts shortcomings is what inspired me to write it; as I did originally set out to write a personal RIFTS supplement. However APOCalypse 2500 has mutated as I have written it to be very different than RIFTS or any other game I am aware of as it evolved into a unique world and rules system to a 200 + page main rule book. I have spent a good deal of time in explaining my technology and magical theories as I tend to be a good story teller. You can read the opening story on the website (http://www.apocalypse2500.com). I am toying with the idea of writing a novel to go more in depth into how the world got to the state it is in the game.

Impressive list. I saved it for future reference. If i had to list my favorite 2, they would be Gamma World and Traveller. Yes or course, there are others.

Excellent list! However my own games were somewhat mashed together. You have listed "Cold War & FTL Now" and "Cold Space." FTL Now is the sequel game to Cold Space, set in the same alt.universe but further forward in time - Cold Space set from 1949-1989, and FTL Now from 1990-now. A lot of people, including myself, refer to them as one whole - i.e. Cold Space/FTL Now - but they are technically separate games.

You may want to add to the list my Sweet Chariot 2 game. While Steampunk, it is set in the very far future on a very different world - in the StarCluster universe, in fact. People from space-faring cultures visit from time to time.

Technically, my Book of Jalan is also SF, and also set in the StarCluster universe, but it plays like fantasy, so I wouldn't bother.

Gotta love the HOL. How could you not love a game with skills like:

Making Sharp Things Go Through Soft Things That Scream and Bleed
and
Whining Until You Get What You Want

Classic bloody humor.

I looked it up on wikipedia. I LOVE what I see. Do you play this regularly?
