The Mind Menace for Mutants and Death Ray Guns: Now Thundarr too must learn!
the Eye of Terror? I mean, this … looks a lot like this: I’m thinking temporal anomaly combined with dimension shift or parallel jump. A world without string! It’s a cool way to set some Rogue Trader skirmish gaming or X-plorers roleplaying in a new environment. If this idea is good enough for Star Trek,… Read more »
