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.
