Venus. The Emerald Planet. A planet of unimaginable wealth, power, freedom, fame, adventure, immortality. Can you escape its lure or will you fall victim to its dangers?
We’re pleased to announce the next supplement for the Rocket Age Roleplaying Game: The Lure of Venus – and to show off Jon Hodgson’s striking cover. Rocket Age is our fast-paced retro sci-fi roleplaying game of adventure amongst the stars.
The steamy jungles of Venus hide all manner of mysteries – and dangers – beneath their thick canopies, from ancient cities to deadly flora and fauna. Explorers look to penetrate their shady depths while corporations seek to exploit the bounty of the Ishtar Range, something the natives Venusians will savagely resist.
The Lure of Venus contains a complete gazetteer of the alien world, including an in-depth look at Venusian Concordats as well as the planet’s many colonies. There’s also a look at the savage Venusians’ high-tech forebears, the Erisians, and all manner of nasty wildlife, new equipment, occupations and more besides.
Can our heroes survive Venus, or will they be lost forever in its jungles?
The Lure of Venus will be available to pre-order soon - keep an eye on the website for more information.
About Rocket Age
“It's alternate history pulpy retro-sci-fi space opera planetary romance. It's throttled up rocket packs burning radium on the long blast to the farthest reaches of the Solar System. It's hunting thunder lizards in the upland jungles of Venus. It's battling Ancient Martian killing machines piloted by the Deutsche Marskorps across the baking red deserts of Mars. It's exploring the deadly skies of Jupiter under the constant threat of Europan disintegration. It's RAY gun wielding heroes bulls-eyeing mutants in the blasted ruins of Io”
