Terminal Space

Thanks to Blair over at Planet Algol for the heads-up about Terminal Space, a new Space Fantasy supplement for OD&D.

According to the Terminal Space blog, the supplement is not quite finished (the current version 1.1 is available as a free download), and it is undergoing some expansion and creative development that sounds promising such as new spells (Control Robot!), fungal battlecruisers and more.  Fun stuff!  I just downloaded the free .pdf and hope to give it a thorough read-through early next week, once I get caught-up on Riskail and other projects.

The notion of Mi-Go as player characters really sounds like some seriously Old School fun.  What's not to like about Lovecraft and Spaceships?  It's a pefect combination.

Ever since reading Lovecraft's In the Walls of Eryx back in High School, I've kicked around the idea for a Lovecraftian Space Opera, but it just never really took off.  Maybe this cool new OD&D supplement will breathe some weird new life into those old notes.  Who knows; maybe the stars are finally right once and for all...

  1. Despite best intentions, I still havne't checked out Terminal Space yet, but strong recommendations from you and Blair, both folks whose creative sensibilities I appreciate, has made me more resolved to do so.
