These Are The Voyages of The USS Avánthe - Star Ships & Spacemen Actual Play (Sort Of)

I've got a Carcosa game tonight but with only 6 players..They want something different so I'm going to mix a few elements from Star Ships & Space Men into a game using the Goblinoid Games engine.

Well with Realms of Crawling Chaos I no longer have a sanity problem
"You all wake up within your rooms & something is wrong. Very wrong. Everything around you is at an odd angle. What has happened to the ship?"Just got the phone call its a confirmed seven folks now

So I'm taking some of the Elder Races from Realms of Crawling Chaos & inserting these in as the Elder Trek races.. Then using the Carcosa model for some of the stuff. I'm moving the Star Ships & Space Men 1st edition time line to sink in with my SWN game. This gives the whole game a Trek feel without violating the principal. 
I'm throwing in some of the elements from the 1st edition to pad things out. The blue prints for tonight's game will be from Here

Monsters will be drawn from 
And given a Lovecraftian twist from 
 The only thing that really pissed me off about Realms of Crawling Chaos? The Mi Go aren't given more coverage as a PC race  & there's no ghouls as a PC race.. However that's easily remedied 
with Terminal Space which will also be providing me with additional fungal ship resources... All downloadable right over Here
There's a subplot involving the Space Rangers here. Wait you've never heard of the space rangers? Well I've been waiting months for the right opportunity to throw this in 

These are not my creation at all but I love this class so much. These guys remind me of the reprints of Weird Adventures & some of the EC comics.. 
You can find out all about them over Here 

The Plot : Your ship is about to crash into Carcosa ... 9.. 8.... 7... 6.... 5...4... 3... ....................................................................................................
I said sort of because second edition Star Ships & Space Men isn't out .. Yet 


  1. That's quite a mixture of systems going on there. Should be good times!

  2. Thanks for the comment ~
    I love the DYI aspect of the above systems one of the great strengths of the stuff is mix & match aspect of it. There's even some Empire of The Petal Throne in there! More to come!

  3. Seriously, Trey is right--that's a great goulash game systems! Goblinoid's decision to converge their systems is genius.

    And I'm glad to see the Space Rangers see some action. You'll have to let me know how it pans out!

  4. Jay I just found this comment today. I think that the Space Rangers will be getting a workout next week. I couldn't agree more that about Goblinoid games.. I think that Dan & the gang over there do some amazing work! I've been a Goblioid fan for years now
