Cosmic Patrol - Matt Heerdt

A different approach to running this game - collaborative improv with a 'Lead Narrator' rotating between the players. The setting is basically Captain Future. Space Patrolmen adventure in an old school planetary romance setting a la Edmond Hamilton. Amazons of Mars, Venus madmen, robots, Lizard People, three eyed guys with big heads, all that sort of thing. It uses the different dice for stats type idea, too, d6, d8, d10, d12 that you assign to a few basic statistics. Character tag and cue ideas in an aspect type sense, the use of plot points to change things. There are some sample NPCs and plot scenario ideas at the end. So this would be cool seeing it is along those lines to already to lift as a FATE setting/adaptation too. 4 out of 5
