S. John's shop on Redbubble is now open! Posters, apparel, housewares, etc., all festooned with the artwork of the master of adventure. I ordered three posters, including a huge, orange-hued one of the Mighty Land of Vanth. I just ordered it yesterday and it's already been printed and is shipping now. Can't wait!

Between the release of the new Star Wars film and a few other recent developments, I've developed a hankering to run an EC game. No one in my area likes EC, and my schedule is crazy so I'd run a play by post here on G+.

And I'd like to set it in a pre 1980 Star Wars setting, which is tailor made for EC.

Of course I didn't come up with the idea; Jeff Rients did, five (!) years ago. Here look at these links concerning the campaign and character creation. Go on, I'll wait.

Great huh? So if you're interested chime in. I know it's the holidays and such so I'll hang around with an idea to start in 2016.

Thanks Jeff! It's funny to see I was very simpatico with you in regards to non human racial adjustments.

Is it just me or is EC the RPG equivalent to a cult movie?

I mean that in a true (scientific) sense of the word. It is relatively obscure, it is offbeat, it has a small following. It is not an RPG that apes (planetary or otherwise) the idea of cult movies but rather it evokes that same wild sincerity that cult movies come from in the first place.

That's the impression I get but what do you guys think?

"Encounter Critical" is the Zardoz of role playing games.

Oh, my!
Working on Phasic Cannon and later iterations of the same technology.  I'm trying for a Trek tech feel, and so far it is going well, including Shields and Power consumption.  As long as there is enough power, these craft are capable of awesome battles.

This is more along the lines of TSR's Knight Hawks level of maths but capable of FASA Trek level diversity of tech and tricks, rather than Star Fleet Battles (although I have been perusing my SFB library for inspiration).

This is taking Encounter Critical where no Encounter has gone before

Thanks, +Scott Lorch.
True Scientific Realism is my Rule 0 when it comes to this project, and trying to make fewer typoes ;) than Hank did in the original.

Cover insert for my new campaign binder.  Art by Caza.   I would've used SJohn fonts but technical admin privilege nonsense made it a pain in the butt.

This should be the cover art for the third edition!

All this Star Wars movie stuff has me thinking again about late 70s Star Wars. What follows, is of course, a no brainer.

Next campaign idea: players complete the EC starter adventure and if lucky gain possession of a space capable Damnation Van.

The van runs on magic (ensorcel!) and with it the party can investigate the universe, seek adventure, gold credits and the answer to the mystery of the Nav Beam Accident.

Some people are upset about GQ's latest cover and interior pictorial spread.  Really?  Answer: yes, really. Why would this be news?  It's Star Wars + a celebrity + sex + comedy.  More importantly, why would anyone who's not i...

Actually, I thought I might need a smaller Vanth poster for gaming purposes. It was the first one to arrive, and it came in yesterday. Shiny!

It's the metallic photo poster, which explains the reflection. It's not quite Phasic Orange:", but I'm color blind enough to be unable to rxplain exactly what color it is.

So I guess I've been collecting inspirational EC-related images for a couple of years now.
In the beginning… belief and rituals shaped the first gods from the dreams of man. As the civilizations of man grew, so did the strength and influence of their deities. In return for sacrifice, the gods gifted their followers with mystic might. But the people wanted more than these gifts could ...

You know you're doing it right if your party looks like this.
