Ash & Murder - Warriors of the Red Planet Empire of The Petal Throne OSR Campaign Set Up


So let's talk abit about the  Empire of the Petal Throne rpg  & the fact that my buddy Tim aka Sam Wise Seven rpg reminded me of the fact that way back in 2015 or so Erick Tankar covered a very interesting  OSR curioisity. Kevin Crawford of Stars Without Number rpg fame did up a  Beta version of Swords of the Petal Throne .03. You can read about that here. 

So now this project ened up in rpg  development Hell but its got me thinking about the possiblities of filling out Swords of The Petal Throne with another OSR product. In this case Brett Slocum's Warriors of the Lost Planet rpg 'a pay what you want' OSR title that uses the Warriors of the Red Planet rpg system. The Warriors of the Lost Planet takes place on  Tekumel during The Later Times, the period within a few thousand years of The Time of Darkness.

So with a bit of OSR sleight of hand the players could potentially play a few thousand years after the 'The Time of Darkness' & as the tribal system is just starting to emerge on Tekumel. This OSR combination along with Warriors of the Red Planet Rpg gives a decent simulation of  Tekumel during the emergence of the tribal wars.
