Kubasik presents my recent Classic Traveller and Alien Legion hack

By RPG Roulette

Long-time Classic Traveller fan and deconstructivist, Christopher Kubasik has begun to host overviews of people running Traveller as a framework for setting and not an end result.  My recent Alien Legion hack for the season finale of RPG Roulette caught his eye and he asked me some follow up questions at the CT G+ community.  He unpacks all of that a bit at his Tales to Astound here:

RPG Roulette, s01e03: Ashen Stars w Mel White

By RPG Roulette

As Autumn takes foot here, I’m making final preparations towards the grand finale for RPG Roulette’s first season with a three game event this coming weekend. In looking over my notes, I came across the audio link that Mel White (Virtual Play podcast) sent me of the session he ran. Myself and two other players took a long stroll through his Sci-Fi-Noir module for the Ashen Stars game system.

The file is longish. Play runs from about 0–3.5hrs. The last hour or so is part of the RPGR breakdown session that discusses the module proper and rolls off to a larger discussion about games and my somewhat overstated disdain of Gumshoe system games.
