Preview: Warriors of the Red Planet RPG ruins

Al of the blog Beyond the Black Gate previews some random ruins in Warriors of the Red Planet, an in-the-works old-school pulp Sci-Fantasy role playing game inspired by the writings of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Otis Adelbert Kline, Michael Moorcock and Leigh Brackett. Noting that “one of the important parts of the Sword & Planet genre is the constant presence of reminders that grander civilizations have fallen. No proper ocher wasteland or purple fungus forest would be complete without a smattering of bizarre monuments, relics, and ruins,” Al describes some of the monuments, relics, settlements, vehicles, buildings and other unexplainable ruins that will be part of the landscape of Warriors of the Red Planet.

Imagine if Italian artist Piranesi took his sketch pad to Mars!
