Daring Tales of the Space Lanes is pseudo-pulp in nature. It follows much the same feel as Star Wars™ or Firefl y™, in that the heroes are a cut above the average citizen, despite what their traits may say, and has similar technology levels to the former. Although pulp-based, the adventures aren’t in the same vein as Flash Gordon ™, though.
The Daring Tales of the Space Lanes adventures aren’t set in any particular galaxy or timeframe—they’re just space adventures. Likewise, the adventures don’t constitute a setting. There is no overarching plot, no timeline, no gear list, no starship catalog, and no defi nitive list of alien races or factions. Each adventure will add small details, as necessary, to the universe.
As for making your own alien, player character races instead of using the pre-generated heroes we’ve provided, there are two easy options. First, pick a race from an existing Savage setting and change the name. A half-orc could just as easily be a Garthunkian. Second, treat them as humans, but allow the character to take an attribute instead of a free Edge.
A few special rules apply to our Daring Tales of the Space Lanes adventures. They’re collected here for your convenience.
