Space 1889 Total Pageviews VideoReview: Space 1889 Space is one of the finest of the games to have come from that "golden age" of RPGs.

Criss-crossing the globe, the canals bring water from the annual melting of the polar icecaps. Although civilized, they are clearly a culture in decline, Space 1889 baroque and incomprehensible art and science Luca Hänni lacks the innovative spark. So I fixed it. But when you read an author who does almost everything poorly, but whose books still find a wide readership, you can be pretty sure that whatever he's doing right is pretty important.
Space: is a role-playing game of Victorian-era space-faring,  created by Frank Chadwick and originally published by Game Designers' Workshop from to and later reprinted by Heliograph, Inc.
In February Chronicle City announced that they are working with Uhrwerk Verlag on a new English edition of Space RPG.
The name Space: is a registered trademark belonging to Chadwick. The game presented an alternate history in which certain discredited Victorian scientific theories were instead found to be true and have led to the existence of new technologies.
In the setting, Thomas Edison invented an " ether propeller" which could propel ships through the " luminiferous aether " the universal medium that permeates space, based on a now outdated scientific theory , and traveled to Mars in accompanied by Scottish soldier of fortune Jack Armstrong, where they discovered that the planet was inhabited.
Venus and Mars have been colonised by Great Britain, Germany, France, Russia, Belgium Mars only , and Italy Venus only , whilst Japan and the USA maintain economic and scientific enclaves on Mars.
There are no colonies or bases on the Moon. Only Great Britain maintains a scientific base on Mercury.
The inner planets reflect an evolutionary progression, the planets nearest to the sun being younger than those farther out. All planets have life, and most bear native sentient species.
Mercury is primeval, tide locked and possesses only rudimentary lifeforms. Venus is a vast swamp world dominated by hulking reptiles and lizard men.
Mars is an ancient desert planet in decline, divided into warring decadent city-states clinging to a failing system of canals.
Vulcan has died and become the asteroid belt. Due to limitations in technology the outer worlds remain unreachable and unexplored.
There are also hints that some worlds may have terrain hidden beneath their surface. One of the treasures that spurred the Europeans to Mars was "liftwood": a rare cultivated plant with anti-gravity properties that allowed for the construction of giant floating ships.
While the Earthers used Martian sky galleons at first, they later constructed their own armored, steam powered flyers.
Since wireless was not invented yet in , communication between Earth and Mars is handled by orbital heliograph stations. The game contains much more detail on the flora , fauna , and peoples of the planets.
The majority of the published material is centered on Mars. Practical aether travel as we know it today all began with Professor Etienne Moreau, who in hypothesised that the aether, like the matter and energy throughout the universe, was not evenly distributed.
If it was instead affected by its interaction with matter, it might be distributed in vortices, thin patches, and even compacted clumps. He also theorised that interaction of matter, energy and aether indicated that it was possible for each to be used to manipulate the other.
Just as matter could be burned to release energy, and energy expended to move matter, so could matter be used to grip or grasp the aether, and energy used to manipulate it.
Thomas Edison, an American inventor, fell into discussions with Moreau about his theories, and through these discussions it was Edison who devised a practical use for the luminiferous aether.
Its nature suggested to Edison a device which could sail at speeds heretofore undreamed of. But this prototype hit a problem; it could not overcome the atmosphere.
Edison communicated this problem to Moreau, and further tests with small models showed that the device would only operate properly at an altitude of 24, feet or higher.
In Edison perfected his prototype and called it an aether propeller, a device that manipulated the aether by generating an electromagnetic field.
He manned the first voyage himself, accompanied by the soldier of fortune, Jack Armstrong. Together they piloted their craft via hydrogen balloon high enough to enable the propeller to work, and from there they sailed the aether all the way to Mars.
Unfortunately their landing on Mars was not smooth and their flyer was damaged, but fortunately the planet was inhabited.
The two men spent over a year on Mars, learning the language of the natives, and were eventually provided with material to repair the flyer.
They returned to Earth on August 7, Edison and Armstrong received fame and fortune, and within a year there was several dozen companies manufacturing Edison flyers, and flyers of several other nationalities were soon making frequent trips to Mars.
These are the facts, how the aether age came upon us. Since then mankind has spread out among the inner planets, but due to the mechanics of aether travel they have not been able to find a way to travel beyond the asteroid belt and thus explore the outer planets.
After all, it is by garnering the heat of the sun that enables the water to boil and thus produce the steam that powers the aether propeller.
The innermost planet, Mercury, is a tidally locked world, with one side always facing the Sun, the other the void of outer space. Between the cold of the dark side and the heat of the light side, there is a narrow mile wide temperate zone that circles the globe.
All around the zone runs the World River, linking the various lakes and small seas, its flow driven by Coriolus effects.
Along the river, exotic plant life and primitive shelled creatures similar to those common on Earth during the Paleozoic Age make their home.
Elements from Red Sands are referenced in The Draco Eye and the third series of stories. Setting: Series one runs from April to December Series two runs from December to October Series three runs from October to late Series one visits Earth, Luna, Venus , Mercury and Mars.
Series two visits Earth, Mercury, Ceres , Venus, Mars, and Phobos. Series three visits Earth, Luna, Jupiter , Saturn , Uranus , Neptune , Charon and Planet X.
Characters: The series forms an ongoing narrative focussing on a set of regular and semi-regular characters. The following information is taken from the 'season two guidelines' But it all seems to work wonderfully well and is a delight to read and work with, as well as play.
Space was ranked 20th in the reader poll of Arcane magazine to determine the 50 most popular roleplaying games of all time.
The UK magazine's editor Paul Pettengale commented: "Although the character generation is a delight - the stats include Social Standing - the system itself combines simplicity with incomprehensibility.
You have to be prepared for lots of house rulings and on-the-spot improvising, or take an easier route and convert to another system.
Comparisons with the later Falkenstein are inevitable and not necessarily to Falkenstein' s credit. Space avoids fantasy hangovers, or the pretence that the setting is a utopia.
Imperialism exists, and its complexities and gradiations are not glossed over. The game leaves it up to the players and ref to decide wehether they become bold imperialists or bold freedom fighters for the Martians.
You bring your own biases to Space , rather than being forced to accept the predigested ideas of its authors. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

And to be honest, sometimes they are not much else, but they are at least that. Coincidentally, not long after I finished that reading project I picked up Harlan Coben's "Tell No One," his very first New York Times best-seller from back in Coben has become a go-to guy for crime thrillers, a solid and respected genre author, and it was fun to read this early work of his.
Man, does he know how to pace a book! Kept me up until in the morning finishing it. But the pacing just sweeps you along past those and I mostly didn't notice until I thought more about it afterwards.
So what have we learned today? It is the beating heart of what keeps a reader reading, what keeps her involved in the story page after page..
And the great thing is that brisk pacing does not exclude any other technique. All the chops you can bring to bear on character, plot, setting, theme, and language don't get in the way of pacing one bit if you do them right.

Thursday, March 20, The Contest With No Prizes -- Lucky Winners Announced. Alas, there are no lucky winners. No one took me up on my generous offer of no prizes for figuring out the three word plays embedded in the short story "Murder on the Hochflieger Ost.
You may recall that I said there were three embedded word plays. One involved an artifact, which I though everyone would get.
One involved a location, which I thought would be harder. The last one, involving a character's name, I though would be all but impossible.
The Artifact When explaining why the plans of the aether battleship are of no use to the French, Renfrew explains that they do not include the plans for the analytic engine which makes the ship so powerful.
There are several other quests involved, taking the character from London to San Francisco to the Far East, but also to Mars, Mercury, and beyond.
