All of the Adamant Entertainment MARS line is 50% off at DriveThruRPG.com
A few weeks back, DriveThruRPG advertised MARS March Sales Month in their weekly newsletter. We at the Troll are fans of Victorian Era Pulp Roleplaying and MARS is in the same ballpark. It is fully the pulp setting we expected it to be.
MARS came to my attention in 2009 along with the announcements of Savage SPACE:1889 Red Sands. All things pulp and Victorian were coming back into our gaming consciousness. MARS fit this well.
If you participated in the January 2010 Gamers Helping Hati $20 bundle you were pleasantly surprised with getting the full MARS pdf in that bundle. My first impressions are below. This won't be a full review but enough of one to get a good idea. It's also more of a prompting to not miss a bargain. The prices are extremely compelling. $7.48 for the Source book and $2.50 each for the 30+ page adventures are worth it.
A free download of Adamant's MARS Character Sheet is here.
Also some great cover art for screen savers are found here.
There's also a d20 Free Preview found here.
