Hollow Earth: Revelations of Mars brings the pulp RPG to the red planet
Hollow Earth Expedition, the roleplaying game from Exile Game Studio using the Ubiquity ruleset, will soon be expanding its brand of pulp into space with Hollow Earth: Revelations of Mars, the new sourcebook which is currently funding on Kickstarter. As of this writing, it has already surpassed its $15,000 goal by $5,000 with 26 days to go.
So, what is it all about, anyway?
Well, beyond the Kickstarter video, which you can watch above, the Kickstarter page describes Hollow Earth: Revelations of Mars as “a dying world filled with strange aliens, bizarre creatures, and vast, inhospitable wastelands.” There was a Martian Princess Kickstarter exclusive miniature available to backers but, as I write this, it appears all but one spot in levels including the miniature are filled up (there is one $75 spot left), so you should probably move fast if you are interested in that. Hollow Earth: Revelations of Mars certainly appears to have a John Carter of Mars feel to it, which is probably exactly what those looking for pulp adventures on Mars are looking for. Hollow Earth: Revelations of Mars has a fulfillment date of March, 2014, and the PDF is $10 (with the original Hollow Earth Expedition PDF for $20 or all of the current Hollow Earth PDFs for $40) and a hardcover copy costs $50. Revelations of Mars chips and Ubiquity dice are now available as add-ons thanks to fulfilled stretch goals (so, you can add them for an extra price) and a free Mars terrain set from Fat Dragon and a PDF GM screen (also free) have been thrown in with more stretch goals promised.
