[TSR] Revolt at Antares (1981) connected to RPG Setting?

Post by Havard » Sun Dec 03, 2017 8:48 pm

Revolt at Antares was a 1981 mini game created by Tom Moldvay and published by TSR. It was a sci fi game with 3 different scenarios:
"The Revolt on Antares minigame has three different scenarios. In the basic game, the Rebel player leads his or her allies in revolt against the Terrain forces and the houses that remain loyal. In the second game, the Terrain player tries to defend himself against revolting houses in league with invading aliens, the Silakka. In the third game, Terra is neutral, while up to four players try to create the most powerful house on Imirrhos!"

Is the planet of Imirrhos or its solar system, Antares, connected to Star Frontiers or any of the other sci fi RPGs published by TSR?

I was a huge fan of the Antares game, and one of our GMs used it for a Star Frontiers adventure that he ginned up himself back in the early 80s. He wasn't able to find any other Antares material anywhere else, but no idea if anything was released after that.
