[Deutsch] Forgotten Futures ist ein Shareware-Rollenspiel¸ das auf den 'Romantic Science'-Geschichten des 19. und frühen 20. Jahrhunderts basiert¸ welche die Vorgänger der heutigen Science-Fiction- Romane sind. Das Material¸ welches auf einem FTP-Server downloadbar ist¸ ist in vier Pakete unterteilt¸ die jeweils das Grundsystem¸ verschiedene Geschichten und die auf diesen basierenden Hintergründe enthalten. Ein Regelsystem für das Rollenspiel befindet sich ebenfalls auf der Seite. Der Alternativlink führt zur Originalseite von Marcus L. Rowland. [Peter Hildebrand]

[Englisch] Every generation has its own set of ideas and predictions. At the turn of this century most pundits thought that the mighty power of steam and electricity would usher in a new age of peace and prosperity. In the fifties the future was mostly seen as doom¸ gloom¸ and nuclear destruction. In the nineties we are obsessed with computers¸ and convinced that the future will revolve around information technology. Each of the earlier views was valid for its era; each was at least partially wrong. By looking at earlier guesses we may be able to discover what is wrong with our own vision of the future - and make even worse mistakes when we try to correct it! Forgotten Futures is a role playing game based on these discarded possibilities; the futures that could never have been¸ and the pasts that might have led to them. Other files in this collection contain stories and a world book (which contains more information on scientific romances in general¸ and on a particular setting for the game) this file contains the rules for the game.
Not technically free¸ but a great shareware RPG based on turn-of-the-century science fiction (Rudyard Kipling¸ Arthur Conan Doyle¸ et al.). Hundreds of pages in 6 collections.

  • Every edition contains a copy of the FF rules¸ a worldbook regarding that edition's particular theme¸ and a few of the old-time stories that inspired the edition in the first place. The rules and the world books generally are over 100 pages each¸ are crisply written¸ and provide astounding bibliographies and reference indices for delving further into the world of old-time science fantasy. The bodies of stories vary in length and often are accompanied by a slew of period illustrations and other miscellaneous material Rowland threw in for kicks.
