TSR’s Star Frontiers – Join the Galactic Legions

My TSR catalog post went over so well last week that I thought I would post a great Star Frontiers ad from 1982. The ad features 2 humans and one of my favorite in-game races the Yazirians. Why were they my favorite? Because they had the best attributes of both bats AND Wookiees.

My friends and I usually played Star Frontiers after a sci-fi weekend on WPIX or if needed a break from the real money game “Top Secret”. For those of you not familiar, Star Frontiers was TSR’s 2nd attempt at a Sci-Fi themed RPG (yes I played Metamorphosis Alpha). What was cool about it was that it stepped away from the d20 system and instead used a percentile system for gameplay. Before I discovered dice-less RPG play. I preferred percentiles to d20.
