So, inspired by Jeff Rient’s An Alchemical Proposal and a need to revisit how to go about doing my Imperial Space game given I won’t try to base it on OD&D I thought I’d try to boil it down to his rules + 2 supplements + 3 fluff standard.
Here is what I came up with:
- Core Rules: GORE (what I picked for fantasy upon reading the original).
- Similar rules supplement: Future World from the old Worlds of Wonder booked set.
- Dissimilar rules supplement:
Jedi Academy Sourcebook from the D6 Star Wars roleplaying game.
This book is not what I thought it was. I’ll be looking for a psionics book of some kind.
- The Empire Strikes Back
- Heretics of Dune
- The Oresteia by Aeschylus
That’s it. Those six books are the canon sources for my Imperial Space game.
