[Barsoom] OD&D Based John Carter the RPG

“As you know I am not of Barsoom; your ways are not my ways, and I can only act in the future as I have in the past, in accordance with the dictates of my conscience and guided by the standards of mine own people.” All RPGs base based on Edgar Rice Burroughs' Barsoom stories can be discussed here.

[Barsoom] OD&D Based John Carter the RPG

Post by Havard » Sun Mar 11, 2012 4:14 pm

TSR once put out a game based on the John Carter setting, Barsoom. Sadly this was before they had learned that they actually had to ask permission before using other people's IPs, so the game was never published again.

Jason Vey put out an adaptation of Barsoon for OD&D:

Looks like it would be fun to play!

OK - got to print this one out when I have access to a printer! Thanks for this link! Perhaps I'll get more ideas for Kor Tharak's third adventure...

Kor Tharak was the main character I created for my story "Divided Loyalties", which was the lead piece in the Heroes of Mars anthology released back in 2012. It was the first sci-fi piece I'd written and I quite enjoyed it. I had plans to write a series of short stories about Kor's adventures - and possibly bundle them together after they were all published into a collection. I started a second story but didn't get much beyond that...I may return to it at some point, but Barsoomian fiction is a very niche (and not well-paying) market.
