Default "Fire Up The Atomic Electro-Magneto-Proton . . . Thingie!"

GURPS Tales of the Solar Patrol is your 52-page ticket back to a time when science fiction was heavy on the fiction and a little light on science. In fact, let's just chuck science right out the darn window. Now my bubble helmet will protect me from harmful solar radiation. I can travel through space at incredible speeds without suffering any relativistic time dilation. And my rocket? Why yes, it is perfectly capable of VTOL.

Take that, Newton!

I've already e-mailed my regular gaming group and offered to play
the Naive Alien Princess with Raygun.

Well tommorrow is payday...

So I will be heading over to e23

I think it would be fun to GM a campaign based on Jack Williamson's
Legion of Space Trilogy...

I still have a copy of the 1960's (?) Hardcover on the bookshelves at home, have never put it into the 8-10 storage tubs of backlister books.

Y'know, most rockets are capable of the first half of that. <g>

More seriously, I am very tempted to buy a copy of this now, instead of sticking to my current plan of "wait and make a big bulk purchase when the next In Nomine supplement is released"...

(reads blurb)..."Humans and dinosaurs go together like gamers and pizza."

Hmmm...That reads out of order to me. I'd've worded it as "Humans and dinosaurs go together like pizza and gamers." Gamers eat pizza; dinos eat the anachronistic humans... >;)
