I have been thinking of buying this to run with straight BRP rules...Anyone have it? Thoughts?
Worlds United is alternate 1950s Pulp SF/Planetary Romance. John Carter, Doc Savage, Clarke Ashton Smith, Jack Vance, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, When Worlds Collide, both HG Wells and George Pal War of the Worlds, and much, much more.
It's self contained as a setting, but absolutely 100% Luther Arkwrightian. This is a parallel Earth where the Martians invaded not once, but twice; where Venus is covered in lush, dinosaur-infested tropical jungle, and the Gifted humans walk among us. Just think what mischief the Disruptors could get up to on such a parallel...
‘Worlds United’, from John Snead, and this is Pulp Fiction Planetary Romance in the Atomic Era. Earth has suffered two Martian invasions, and discovered life on Venus. All this leads to Rockets, Dinosaurs, Rayguns, and lots of 40s and 50s SF serial adventure! Great on its own, and terrific when coupled with Luther Arkwright.
it's a compendium of material scattered across two or three supplements that will be useful to most GMs, along with some new material that Pete and I have been working on intermittently for a year or so. It'll be a free download, ala Mythras Imperative, or a modestly priced POD.
Social Conflict, Chase rules, and Vehicle Combat rules
So I can start a new thread if desired but what is the Mythras Companion? You mention that its a rules compendium... Do you what kind of rules? This is the first I have heard of it!My guess Worlds United is going to adapt a lot of the Luther Arkwright rules and mechanics but make it specific to the genre of planetary romance. From the description I can't see anything you couldn't do already with the LA supplement but not entirely sure, Loz also posted this in the G+ group:
There's also the Mythras companion coming out ... soon(?) which is more of a rules compilation but there's some new stuff in there as well
