So I was rewatching Starlost like I seem to do every couple of weeks (Boxed set totally worth it) and I noticed something, Garth says that Cypress corners takes a man two to three days to cross, but promotional descriptions of the ship say that they are 10 miles across. A bit of googling around says that 2-3 days would be in the 55 mile range for most people going at a reasonable pace.... It bothers me. For those using the Ark as a prototype for their own lost colony ship games I wonder, how big do you make the domes?

I don't think they show any landscape shots, but what we can see is pretty flat, and it is an agricultural dome. Even if it was a bit rough 10 miles still seems like something that could be crossed in a day.

Hi guys, sorry for asking, but has there ever been a Captain Future rpg? I'm desperately looking for in-depth data on CF technology (spaceships, weapons, the works), but I can't find anything relevant (beyond, "Captain Future's ship is the Comet; she's the fastest ship of her time, yadda yadda yadda").

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Starships & Spacemen  - 
 
Sunday! Sunday! Sunday! I'd like to run a game of Starships and Spacemen 2nd ed set onboard a derelict generation ship.

Players will take on the roll of the resurrected crew onboard a ship based on the warden. Players will either be statted as human crew directly out of S&S or the mutants that are inadvertently spawned by the defective resurrection process.

I'd be using the conversion guide in the back of Apes Victorious to use Mutant Future style mutants, and Metamorphosis Alpha bits here and there.

The game would be Sundays on roll20.net sometime after 7pm pst, and would likely start up on the 22nd.

Hulks and Horrors might also work well for this sort of a game.

Original Traveller for me. The definitive sci fi game. Started off perfect and got revamped to death.

White Star leaves me cold. Too much bland Star Wars and none of the good stuff.
