Lao-Kwei Astral Spirits

Post by Yaztromo » Tue Oct 16, 2018 10:07 pm

At page 288 of this non-canon, amateur publication with a final appendix dedicated to Calidar (https://fightingfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Life_on_Barsoom) bizarre creatures called Astral Spirits are described. They are aligned to Lao-Kwei somewhat "oriental" buzz and inspired by a character in "Skies of Fury".

A friend of mine developed a campaign that is mostly focused on recovering the artifacts associated to Astral Spirits from a bit all Soltan Ephemeris and she said it is turning out very well. I'm trying to convince her to share her gaming material, but, whether I'll be successful in this or not, it sounds to me like a good trick to visit all over the system.

" The very last appendix contains notes for adapting the world of Barsoom to the planet of Lao-Kwei of The World of Calidar by Bruce Heard, a world apparently unrelated, but referring to very similar "pulp" fantasies about Mars." -- Certainly very true as regard the pulp nature of Lao Kwei. Thanks for putting this up.
