Rocket Age Corebook
Rocket Age has been awarded a Judge's Spotlight Award in the 2014 ENnie Awards.
"It's alternate history pulpy retro-sci-fi space opera planetary romance. It's throttled up rocket packs burning radium on the long blast to the farthest reaches of the Solar System. It's hunting thunder lizards in the upland jungles of Venus. It's battling Ancient Martian killing machines piloted by the Deutsche Marskorps across the baking red deserts of Mars. It's exploring the deadly skies of Jupiter under the constant threat of Europan disintegration. It's RAY gun wielding heroes bulls-eyeing mutants in the blasted ruins of Io" - Ken Spencer, Rocket Age Line Developer
Rocket Age is the core rulebook in our new radium-powered game line of interplanetary adventure! Powered by the Vortex System (like our Doctor Who game) it's packed to the fins with all the rules, setting information and game ideas to keep you playing throughout your very own rocket age!

Blood Red Mars
The red sands of Mars are stained dark with the blood of conqueror and conquered, of explorer and savage beast, of alien and native alike. Mars, the Red Planet, named for some long-dead Earthling god of war, has lived up to its namesake. Armies march, archaeologists battle the traps of Ancient Ruins, and warbands of the native Chanari raid the towns of the ‘civilized’ castes with impunity. Life on Mars is one of conflict, of gun and blade, of bow and fang, of ideas. Freedom cry out the Julandri slaves, faith call back the Kastari priestly sects, mine scream the prince and the revolutionaries!
In Blood Red Mars you will find a complete gazetteer of the alien world, listing of its major cities, principalities, physical features, and geographic regions, along with story hooks and example characters for each. There’s also information and rules for the (often-deadly) flora and fauna of Mars including the dreaded silt sea dragons, deadly stigia bird, and ravenous desert well tree; a list of organizations operating on Mars, each with detailed descriptions of their history, operations, and rules and story hooks for using them in the game; a complete adventure set on the Red Planet and more besides!
Can our heroes prosper on Mars, or will their blood too soak into the sands of the Red Planet?

Heroes of the Solar System
Freebooters rampage across Mars, Nazis plot new atrocities, savage beasts prey on colonists and above all the sinister Europans loom. The solar system needs heroes – heroes like you!
Heroes of the Solar System, the second sourcebook for Rocket Age, offers you a look at the heroes of the rocket set. The focus of Heroes of the Solar System is on the player characters, though Gamemasters will still find plot hooks and episode ideas galore.
This book is just filled with new ideas for familiar species, new organizations for your heroes to fight for (and sometimes against), new equipment to use in their explorations and adventures, new character traits, and new species.
Heroes of the Solar System contains:
4 new types of sophont for you to play: the beloved Lizard Monkeys of Venus, the ancient Robomen of Mars, the winged Jovians of the skies of Jupiter and the utterly bizarre Metisians, cephalopodian soldiers of the Europans.
Expanded background for each of the 13 sophonts from the Rocket Age rulebook. How long does a Maduri live? What sort of material culture do the Venusians have? Are all Martians lactose intolerant? The answers to these questions and more besides are in here!
10 new heroic organizations for your heroes to join up with – or for the Gamemaster to use as antagonists – from the Europan Emissary Corps to the Interplanetary Comintern and the Rocket Rangers themselves. The structure, history and operations of each organization is fully detailed, along with a typical NPC, a selection of plot hooks and character packages for playing an agent of the organization.
Over 50 new Traits for your characters to pick from, from Don’t Die on Me! and Percussive Maintenance to Space Sick and Wanted Man, and more esoteric options besides.
All three of these great titles are included in this time-limited bundle! Grab them while the grabbing is good, Ranger!
