Hmmm. I didn't get a similar e-mail, which bothers me because I was in on the Alpha and Beta stages of playtest. I guess I didn't send in enough feedback or something like that. :?

I suspect now we have enough posts related to Barsoom from enough different users to consider setting up its own Campaign World board.

Possibly. If not if the game is as good as we hope it may attract new fans and old which may increase forum activity.

Interesting. Sadly one guy in my new group doesn't want to try new systems. He just wants to play with 5E rules.

At the rate these guys are churning out rpg settings using their 2d20 system, seems they are vying to be the «new d20» standard !

You could use the Hyperlanes ‘D&D 5e reskinned for space’ with this setting fluff. But yeh, I am focused on 5e myself ATM

Agreed that 5E interests me a lot more than 2d20. I really am surprised that WotC or someone hasn't come up with 5E Space, 5E Modern, and so on. Then we could tweak it to have our 5E Barsoom.

I'll probably back the kickstart just becasue it's John Carter of Mars, but I'd like a 5E version a lot better.

Honestly, I happlily played several adventures using Advanced Fighting Fantasy Quickstart Guide (a simple d6 ruleset freely available on Drivethrough RPG) plus Life on Barsoom setting adaptation (http://fightingfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Life_on_Barsoom) and they worked well with Barsoom without spending a cent.
As a game master, however, you need to buy the ruleset.

I backed this as a kickstarter. D&D 5e rules reskinned for space opera and not setting specific. Would do exactly what you are asking for for space opera or other cinematic SF.

This is on my to-buy list for 2018. Have you played a game with it Hyperlanes or just read it ?

Just read and made a few PCs. If I wanted to play I’d end up DM and I just don’t have time. I run two campaigns of 5e already. I did write a review though (unpublished). More of campaign hand out really.Wait a bit I’ll make a link...https://www.dropbox.com/s/5k74q62ujqip4 ... .docx?dl=0
