An Age of Rockets: A Slipstream Saga [SWADE]
My heart turns home in longing
Across the voids between,
To know beyond the spaceways
The hills of Earth are green.
excerpt from "The Green Hills of Earth"
- "Noisy" Rhysling


Space Pulp! The Age of Sail is long ended, but the Age of Rockets has only just begun! Spacejockeys dogfight with star pirates hungry for loot. Inspired inventors and crazed chemists push the bounds of Science!, developing wondrous and fantastic new devices that border on magical. Mesmerists plumb the forbidden powers of the mind while avoiding the grasp of the tyrannical Queen Anathraxa. Intrepid explorers and bold adventurers dig for alien artifacts on strange and broken worlds. Morality is clear-cut black and white, and sometimes a punch in the jaw carries more weight than a blast from a ray gun.  It is "The Future that Would've Been" where Heroes are larger-than-life and the Ideals they represent are the ones that bring hope that "the best is yet to come".

"An Age of Rockets" is set in the Slipstream universe, with elements pulled from Flash Gordon to bring it into Savage Worlds Adventure Edition.  Much of original setting remains, with a few twists and surprises along the way.
