In keeping with the theme of the game, the claw arm is a sleeve apparatus that the actor would wear over his arm on the TV show. The gun is a simplified Tesla ball, a relatively easy-to-manufacture item that would look futuristic to most '70s audiences.
I created this artwork for Spectrum Games' new retro-70s sci-fi role-playing game RETROSTAR. This piece features my foxy "Capable Heroine," Sofia Stardust, sans rollerskates, and will be the cover of Spectrum's "Lightspeed Adventure Manual."
The "Lightspeed Adventure Manual" will offer a stripped-down, but fully playable, version of the Retrostar rules! In addition, you'll get a ready-to-play series..., complete with setting information, pre-generated characters and a full episode to kick off your adventures with!
The series is called Rōgun. In this setting, earth has been ravaged, her resources depleted. Noble warriors defend a mobile, solar-powered fortress, traveling from town to town. These rollerskating samouri stand against the Warriors of the Night and cybornetic Scroungers. This is Rōgun.
The Lightspeed Adventure Manual will be made available at DriveThru RPG later this month! Your gateway to 1970s-era sci-fi television roleplaying is almost here. The full Retrostar rulebook (which will feature a foreword by Battlestar Galactica's Richard Hatch) will be available in the first half of 2015.
