This is the Encounter Critical mailing list, for celebrating the faux-classic, gonzo science-fantasy RPG of the same title. I think the game describes itself best:
Quest into the slaver kingdoms or hurl yourself into the galaxies of space to find wealth and destiny. Your tactics and your character are yours to control as you undertake ENCOUNTER CRITICAL.
This rules manual includes complete rules for both fantasy and science fiction in a single game, combined as you’ve never seen them combined before, into a coherent whole with true scientific realism on every page. Imagine the excitement you can enjoy with the freedom to play an Elf or a Klengon – as you choose! Even combine them for something more incredible.
The combat systems are based on both actual experience and deep research, and in all ways ENCOUNTER CRITICAL exceeds what you have come to imagine a role-play game to be. There is no difficulty combining the excitement of fantasy with the elegant and natural laws of science fiction when you have these rules for your scenario.
