No Alternity?

Alternity already has a new edition out!

I voted Boot Hill, Indy Jones, and Star Frontiers...but that's just because I really want an updated d20 Modern and d20 Future.

Yes, I saw that at GenCon, almost bought it; there are some others out as well, istr seeing a new Gamma World and Metamorphosis Alpha. Then with Star Frontiers, Boot Hill, and Gangbusters; there are fan made adaptations, not sure how much original setting material can be made for them. EPT also has new material, through Tékumel :: The World of the Petal Throne


My votes:

1. Empire of the Petal Throne - Love the incredibly rich lore, culture, mystique.

2. Star Frontiers - I want to play a flying wookie again. 'Nuff said.

3. Top Secret - With an improved game engine and assuming they set it in the 1980's cold war era (where it belongs!), this would be 9 ways of fun. Still have very fond memories of this little gem:



WoTC needs a flag ship science-fiction game.

I would like to see a sci-fi RPGs that can do Star Frontiers/Alternity and Gamma World all rolled into one. Also a game that takes into account all the technological progress that has been made since the games were published.


I don't trust them with EPT. It's not sanitary enough for them*. Jeff Dee has a new-ish Tekumel game out and there. Also The Petal Hack.

EDIT-FWIW- Wizards does not have the rights to EPT. TSR gave those up in the late 1970s.
EDIT2- Further FWIW- I should read the OP more carefully. Duh.

Gangbusters recently got re-done with the BX treatment I believe.

Met Alpha has been pretty active between Goodman and now Troll Lord Games.

Top Secret was awesome, but modern tech ruins the Spy Genre for me.

*This goes for Buck Rogers too. It's not Politically/Socially friendly.

I don't even recognize (or care about) Marvel anymore. Circa 1984, sure. Modern day? No thanks.

Star Frontiers gets my vote along with Boot Hill and Alternity.
