Proto-traveller - Traveller
Proto-Traveller is a small ship, low traffic setting for Traveller, typically focusing on civilian or quasi-civilian (ex-military) play rather than strictly military science-fiction. It tends to prefer the simpler rules over the more complex ones: basic chargen over advanced chargen; weapons from Book 1 over the ironmongery of Book 4; and so on.

The Long And The Short Of It | Burn After Running: RPG One-Shots

In the first, I ran a game of Vampire: Dark Ages over a full day; in the second, I prepped a 30-45 minute demo game of Hunters of Alexandria, a FATE-based historical fantasy game from D101 games.

The Creatures Below - Google Docs
This one sheet is based on Tulkas, a planet full of wasteland and desert where the last bastions of civilization hold out against the rolling sands. Many people have taken to living high over the desolate surface on the decks of large floating cities held aloft by dangerous gases pouring from thermal vents on the ground. Others live on the surface around the small springs and oases, carving into rock or digging beneath the sand. Even older civilizations have made homes in the rocks and mountains, now buried beneath sands and cloaked in poisonous gases from the planets core. Here the people eke out a living among the sands.

feedBase: A project to get feeds into a base.
What is feedBase?
A project to get lots of feeds into a database.

How it works
Each feedBase user has a single OPML file containing their subscriptions. You can edit the file whenever you like.

When your list changes your subscriptions are added to a database of the subscriptions of all other Scripting News readers. From that we compile a top 100 list so we can see who everyone else subscribes to and find other interesting sites.

Periodically we read the feeds to keep our database of info about them up to date.

Star Wars Origins - Frank Herbert's Dune
Frank Herbert's 1963 Dune is to science fiction what The Lord of The Rings is to fantasy: the most popular, most influential and most critically-acclaimed novel in the genre. Herbert's novel was a revelation: before Dune, even the most well-written science fiction had been mostly "wonderful gadget" stories, or political commentary expressed through exaggeration. It had never occurred to anyone that science fiction could offer the literary depth of Dostoevsky, the intricate "wheels within wheels" intrigues of Shakespeare or so deeply fulfill the heroic epic form behind Gilgamesh, The Odyssey, Le Morte D'Arthur, The Mahabharata, and Beowulf.
