Let’s got to the frontier… The Star Frontier that is!

Dane of War’s excellent post, 10 RPGs every gamer should play before they fail their saving throw vs. death got me thinking of my favorite sci-fi game, Star Frontiers. This old school sci-fi game published by TSR in 1982 was my first game of that genre and the system under which I ran my second longest campaign, all the way from high school to college.

If you have never taken a look at the game it’s well worth it. Many of the races were later converted to Spelljammer, Alternity and D20 Future. So give yourself a chance and visit the Star Frontiersman website, they have a section containing what they call “digitally remastered” files of the original books that you can download.


Welcome reader, thanks for taking the time to find out just who I am! My name is Roberto, although in the Internet I usually go by the name of Sunglar. Long time pen & paper RPG player, mostly a GM for the better part of that time; some will say that’s because of my love of telling a good story, others because I’m a control freak, but that’s debatable… I was born, raised, and still live in Puerto Rico, an island in the Caribbean, with a small but active gaming community.

I’ve played RPGs for 30 years, and for most of that time I played D&D in all its various permutations, including Pathfinder and I'm currently playing D&D 5th edition. Other games my regular gaming group has played over the last few years include Mutants & Masterminds and Savage Worlds, but I have played many other games through the years, and plan to play many more. I am a compulsive homebrewer and rarely play a campaign I have not created myself.

You can follow me on Twitter as @Sunglar, and find me in Google+ also as Sunglar. I'm very active in Facebook where you can find me posting regularly in the Puerto Rico Role Players group. Looking forward to hearing from you!
