DESCRIPTION

In Inner Worlds you will find information on the solar system's inner worlds. Details about the economies of both worlds, their peoples, their relationships with RAM and NEO and the delicate balances of power caused by those relationships are all within these pages. Background on the physical geography and native races is also here. In addition, you will find a full color map of both planets, providing excellent reference for all pertinent planetary information

SYNOPSIS

Mercury and Venus: The two innermost planets in the solar system. Their names evoke a romanticism of an earlier era, of the speed and beauty of gods. However, in reality there is little to romanticize about .

Mercury: Perhaps the perhaps the place-names based on musicians, writers, and intelectuals were chosen to reflect the culture which has risen to prominence on this sun ravaged planet. The rift between the decadence of the Sun Kings (especially the Gavilans) and the Spartanism of the Miners is great and widening daily.

Venus: The lovliness evoked by the place-names found on Venus stands in stark contrast to the harshness of reality. A world like earth in type only, the planet is enveloped in a highly acidic athmosphere. Bizzare mineral-plant jungles cover the lowlands. Civilization is found only on the high mesas of Ishtar and Aphrodite.

Here's a bit of TSR Trivia for you, thanks to Wikipedia!

Buck Rogers was a fictional character created in 1928 by Philip Nowlan. A Buck Rogers comic strip written by Nowlan was syndicated by John Dille (who may have contributed the nickname "Buck" to the character). Ownership of Buck Rogers and other works passed into the hands of the Dille Family Trust.

In the 1980s, John Dille's granddaughter, Lorraine Williams, was the president of TSR. In that decade, business for TSR was booming, mainly as a result of their popular RPG, Advanced Dungeons & Dragons. Lorraine Williams decided to merge Buck Rogers and D&D to make the XXVc game setting, which came out in 1990 and was based on the Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Second Edition rules, but there are some small differences. It was a new incarnation of the Buck Rogers world created by William's brother, Frank Dille. Its universe was limited to the solar system, and revolved heavily around interplanetary travel and terraforming. A few dozen expansion modules were published, as well as a line of novels and graphic novels.

The company TSR owned Advanced Dungeons and Dragons at the time and had worked with SSI on a computerized version of the rules. SSI developed their "Gold Box" game engine for Advanced Dungeons and Dragons, so it was natural for them to use the engine for the XXVC rules.
