As I have mentioned numerous times before, i have a real love for anything pulp, those over the top adventures from yesteryear that were the kind of things our grandparents and great grandparents read.
This all stems down to my own grandfather and role model Richard Henry Shepherd reading to me when I was a small boy, and then later avidly collecting the works of Edgar Rice Burroughs, George MacDonald Frasier, and Robert E Howard to name but a few!
My love of pulp spilled over into my gaming and way back when I was about 14 years old or so, I penned my own game based on the adventures of Alex Raymonds Flash Gordon!
In the late 1980s, Games Designer Workshop (GDW) released an amazing roleplaying system set during the Victorian era, that allowed you to experience high concept adventure at its finest and best of all it was set on our neighbor Mars! Space 1889 was a spin on the pulp genre and the alien worlds of Mars and later Venus were ideal settings.
Recently Modiphius Entertainment aquired the rights to produce Space 1889 and have some exciting things planed ahead, and here they will take at look at the home of the game itself Mars!
