White Box Gothic, Adventurer, Conqueror, King & White Star Rpg In The Making of An Interstellar Campaign Setting

 Somehow lately it feels like part of me has lost it's way with the OSR & perhaps its the near constant drum of diversity in games & rpg sales. Everyone seems to be trying to make a buck as fast as they can before the next hammer comes down from Cowards of the Coast. Once again I went back to Swords & Wizardry. Specifically the James M. Spahn's White Box Gothic set which comes in at about fifty pages of OSR Gothic goodness. 

Why?! You've covered White Box Gothic before. So what gives?! I'm looking to use White Box Gothic For the White Star Galaxy edition rpg. There are lot of good stuff between these pages for White Star specially if your leaning towards the void knights side of the spectrum. Between magic items that reek corruption. Several classes that would fit right into a dedicated crew of champions of light or interstellar mercs. There's a nice array of monsters that could serve as void monster stand ins. 
And this get's into an idea that's been floating in the back of my mind for a long while now. This is using ACK's 
Kanahu as a back water world of the Washington Sector. And how does this relate to White Star?! Simply put Kanahu is a lawless back water Sword & Sorcery world where corruption & Pulpy Eldritch evil has run amok! The Star Knights haven't gotten around to taming this world because of the fact that it was an ancient Grey protectorate world. And the reason for this conversion is simple & that's DYS Games Between Star & Void which has conversions for Adventurer,Conqeuror, King. Making it easy to have your star knights go up against the evils of the warlords of Kanahu.
