This man is Buck Rogers, born in the long-ago 20th Century but now very much alive and well in the 25th.

Only in the arcologies, forcibly isolated from the sprawls, can citizens really enjoy the luxuries that the 25th century has to offer. Of course, the people of the arcologies are the foreordained emissaries of Los Angelorg to the Solar System. From their mile-high skyscrapers they have proclaimed their independence from RAM influence, casting it aside with flagrant, possibly premature audacity.

The leaders of the Newporg Arcology know that their boldness has cut RAM to the quick, and they are quite certain that they have a traitor in their midst.

It's a moot point, since after a "chance" encounter with a sultry Terran known as Matahari, they'll be too busy to get anywhere near Jupiter.

To the executives who run the immense corporation known as RAM, Mars is as close to Paradise as any place in the solar system. To the people who make up the bulk of RAM's military and civilian work force, Mars means security and opportunity To the loners and strange creatures that prowl the planet's vast deserts, Mars is much as it has laways been: A world or wilderness, solitude, and danger.

To the inhabitants of the rest of the solar system, Mars is at worst an enemy and at best a threat. The Martians run the most powerful -- and the most power-hungry -- planet in the solar system, and they fully intend to keep things that way Ray Winninger Except for its raw materials, nothing of value comes from here, and nothing ever will. RAM executives all originated from Terran genetic stock, but they were, of course, "the only good thing ever to come from Earth.

The planet is in awful shape, its best areas barely civilized and surrounded by ruins. To the inhabitants of Mars, Earth is a den of thieves and pirates. A backwater planet now, it is considered a useless, ruined rock populated by those awful Terrans To those on Earth, this is home, and home is worth fighting for.

The rift between the decadence of the Sun Kings especially the Gavilans and the Spartanism of the Miners is great and widening daily. Venus: The loveliness evoked by the place-names found on Venus stands in stark contrast to the harshness of reality. A world like Earth in type only, the planet is enveloped in a highly acidic atmosphere.

Bizarre mineral-plant jungles cover the lowlands. Civilization is found only on the high mesas of Ishtar and Aphrodite. In Inner Worlds, you will find information on all this and more.

Buck Rogers XXVc: A Dragon’s glimpse of the future

Role Playing Game The original Comic series — Buck Rogers in the 25th Century — was cancelled in , but rights to the character remained the property of the descendants of John Flint Dille, who devised the strip based on magazine stories written by Philip Francis Nowlan in the late s. Flint Dille , Williams' brother, created the core background for a new iteration, and TSR developed a line of novels, a Board Game and the RPG , which used similar mechanics to the second edition of their fantasy game Advanced Dungeons and Dragons TSR designed by David Cook, Steve Winter, but added a much more detailed system for handling character skills resembling that used in Traveller The setting is Retro-Pulp , aiming to combine the tone and visual style of the original series with science-fictional ideas current in the s, including Genetic Engineering and an oppressive social system dominated by corporate forces. In the twenty-fifth century the solar system is controlled by coalitions of Earth's former national governments, of which the most important is the strongly capitalist Russo-American Mercantile, a group reminiscent of Jerry Pournelle 's CoDominium. The planets, each of which has its own exotic culture, have been Terraformed and colonized by artificially created human subspecies, including the partially feline Desert Runners of Mars and the human shark hybrids which inhabit the atmosphere of Jupiter see Pantropy.
