Three "science fiction" (AKA Outer Space Adventures, AKA Aliens & Astronauts, AKA Spaceships & Blasters) role-playing games based on old school D&D systems.

I have to say I'm kind of with Adam of Barking Alien regarding these new games. They are all impressive works, but none of them...mmm..."do it" for me.
But maybe that's just because I'm working on my own game with a similar idea. The "similar" part is starting with a D&D chassis to make a space opera-esque game.
But that's where it ends.

Let me compose my thoughts a bit. To be continued!
