is a fan-made game taking place in the star-spanning super-science pulp setting Tekumel (the planet of the 1975 Empire of the Petal Throne game) belonged to before being thrown into a pocket dimension.
The game was created by Drune of Ix Blog and uses a system compatible with Labyrinth Lord and Mutant Future. The setting is evocative of 1930-1960's pulp sci-fi of Astounding Science Fiction and similar magazines but but it has enough kitchen-sink/gonzo potential to easilly fit elements of 1970's sci-fi craziness, Star Wars, Dune, Foundation, Metabarons, etc. Flash Gordon and Ming of Mongo wouldn't be totaly out of place here, and Mars bears more than a certain resemblance to the one visited by John Carter.

I am currently recruiting players for a Humanspace Empires PBP game at http://odd74.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=humanspace
Slots are still available, so come one, come all!
If you haven't heard of Humanspace Empires check http://ixians.blogspot.pt/2011/03/revis ... ytest.html
for the Revised Playtest Draft in PDF format. The blog is a mine of information about the setting.
Two PBP HE games were run last year and have their own blogs Ancient Astronauts
and Spaceswords & Glory
The chaotic jumble of my own personal HE creations/adaptations can be found at http://odd74.proboards.com/index.cgi?bo ... 087&page=1
If you don't know what EPT/Tekumel is, ask an old-timer or visit http://www.tekumel.com/
but pay heed that what is described there takes place some 75,000 years in the future of Humanspace Empires and familiarity with it is not needed to play HE. The descriptions of the alien races will be useful though.
If you are interested cross the nearest Nexus Point, drop by, and roll up a player character. No Psy-Luck or Probabilistic Perversion permitted upon the dice. Beware of the giant Cymek guardian and take caution not to fall into the space-time loop.
