While there are a few fan created John Carter of Mars conversions for OD&D on the net, I was considering trying my own had at coming up with a generic sword and planet supplement for either Labyrinth Lord or Swords & Wizardry. I intended it to be set in the far, far, future in the Jovian system on the” terraformed the Galilean where a once ultra-high tech civilization has been thrown into barbarism complete with swords, psychic powers, and half-forgotten technology… oh, and nublie, skyclad Jovian women.
However, it seems I may have to put that idea on hold, because Al over at the Beyond the Black Gate blog may have down all my work for me. He has been working on his sword and planet old-school game, Warriors of the Red Planet. By the look of the spectacular artwork by one Thomas Denmark, Al seems to be heavily influenced by Burroughs’ work complete with aerial battleships and mutli-armed alien brutes. Besides the artwork, Al’s new blog for his upcoming game gives a sneak peak on how PCs will look in WotRP.
As of this time we have no release date just yet, but WotRP has moved up into the top five of my “IT MUST BE MINE” list of future gaming purchases.

Sorry for the absence of posts since the blog’s inception. I’ve had to contend with:
- A nasty cold that is still lingering after two months.
- A brief seasonal job that will be coming to an end next week.
- The usual real-life ups and downs of a manic-depressive loner.
- Insane family members.
- Bills, bills, bills….
However, things are beginning to look up and I should be able to focus on this blog now. Oh, did I mention that school was getting in the way?
