This game brings the Barbarians of Lemuria game engine to the future.
While this set of rules is designed for post-apocalyptic gaming, it could easily be used for sci-fi or space opera as well.
In addition to the basic game mechanics, BotA adds rules for all sorts of variant races. Wanna play robots. Yup. Aliens. Yup. Mutants. Yup. Elves??!?!? Yup. Furry? Yup. Psionic Plant?!?!? Yup.
Add to that rules for vehicles, modern weapons, and random sci-fi gear and you've got a great instant game.
On top of that, you get the great random setting generator. If you don't know what game you want to play, there's a way to randomly generate the world. Randomly generate what the Apocalypse was (nuclear, magic, biological, divine, Chtonian, etc.), what level of recovery the world has, what sort of technology is available, what sort of characters are available, and so on. Each table building on the results of the last.
With this, you could easily adapt other games as well. Want to play BoL in Rifts or Shadowrun or Cyberpunk? Here's your rules...
Anyway, a great game with lots of potential on its own.
Get it now and enjoy the read.
