3109Far Future Earth/Victorian Mars simularities
- Apr 1, 2006To the Group,
For a game I have been writing off and on for years (One Million AD--
Tales of the Forgotten Earth) I have been reading stories of a far
future earth. What has struck me as very curious is the resemblences
between the visions of a decadent earth and victorian mars eg barsoom
Drying seas or dead seas, ruins of cities, leftover technology of
superscience and the deadliness of awakening it. Societies stuck at
medieval or barbarian levels often with some advanced anachronistic
societies left over. Swords all over the place. It seems to almost be
a hash or a disguise of planetary romances.
Has anyone else noticed this?
