A Barsoom Gaming Thought, or Not

One of the reference books I bought for the John Carter/Barsoom book series lo these many moons ago is one that is still in my collection.





I bought this book as a reference work to have, as I've always wanted to play Barsoom in a roleplaying game or some such. I've used ideas from the book in various roleplaying games I've run over the years. But now, there's an actual John Carter of Mars Roleplaying Game from the folks at Modiphius Entertainment.

And so now, the reference book in question is even more valuable than it was to me in the past. Oh, and here's a purchase link for the book on Amazon.ca...

I have that reference book too. There's a lot of nice content in there. I wish the maps had reproduced a lot better from the original pocket book paperback, but with the new game we have much, much better maps anyway.

I do have to wonder how many folks have the A Guide to Barsoom as a reference guide. It's an invaluable item for running a Barsoom game, even if you don't have the new rules.

Yes, the maps of the new game are terrific, even if I can't figure out a measurement system for 1 inch = ??. (I'm getting old.) *sigh*
