New RPG campaign – Space 1889: Red Sands

Pinnacle Entertainment recently published the full-color, 192-page book (pdf) and player’s guide (pdf) for the all-new RPG Space 1889: Red Sands, a Savage Worlds Plot Point Campaign setting based on the classic Victorian science fiction role-playing game. Here’s an extended description of Space 1889: Red Sands, taken from Pinnacle’s site:

Since Thomas Edison first explored the worlds with the help of his marvelous ether propeller, the British Empire has grown to include the red plains and stately canals of Mars, the steaming, dinosaur-infested swamps of Venus, even a remote outpost in the twilight zone of Mercury. In 1889, the sun truly never sets on the British Empire.

But deep inside the Empire a core of revolt festers and grows. Martian cults cry out for the Earthlings' explusion. Britain teeters at the edge of war with the Oenotrian Empire. In the midst of seething turmoil, the being known only as Kronos siezes the technology of a forgotten race to threaten the very future of mankind!

Space 1889: Red Sands contains everything you need to play thrilling Victorian space adventures with the Savage Worlds game system: new Edges, Hindrances, combat and construction rules for either vessels and aerial flyers, a complete system for Inventions, copious information about the various locales, races, and mysteries of the Solar System, and Adventure Generator, dozens of Savage Tales, a bevy of alien creatures and nefarious foes, and a Plot Point campaign to take your heroes to the stars and back again. Space 1889: Red Sands requires the Savage Worlds core rules to play.

The printed book version of Space 1889: Red Sands is scheduled to be published in November 2010. Meanwhile, check out a detailed preview of Space 1889: Red Sands that was posted on the RPG blog Stargazer’s World back in April 2010.
