Gaming Ads of Yor - Star Frontiers

Now this is a game I DID get to play.

Star Frontiers was like a poor mans Star Wars in that it didn't have the notoriety and publicity that Lucas' films did. This was always like a little brother to D&D and I don't think that many people had the pleasure of playing it, but it was a fun game. This was one of the few games when I wouldn't play a human. I usually played a Yazarian (basically a space monkey with flaps for wings). They just seemed cool. I liked the concept of the Dralasite, but they reminded me of Gloop and Gleep from the Herculoids.

  2. Larry Elmore should have painted more space babes and fewer "Cherokee" rangers and druids. In space, you don't want to be a squishie human!

  3. @Timeshadows, sure NOW you tell me! I've been spelling it wrong for months now. Screw it, now I have to keep going with it misspelled. Maybe it'll become the next big meme.
