The Complete Canal Priests Of Mars is now available!The original publication of Canal Priests Of Mars cut slightly over a third of author Marcus L. Rowland's manuscript to fit GDW's adventure format. The Complete Canal Priests Of Mars restores the cut material, features all new artwork by Paul Daly, and adds many useful player handouts. Enjoy the "author's cut" of a classic Space 1889 adventure, or experience it for the first time!
Old news is still available on the News Page.
The following is an index to descriptions of cities mentioned in Space: 1889 source material. The index includes all sourcebooks published by GDW, Challenge Magazine (also published by GDW), the adventure module Liftwood Conspiracy published by 3W, Transactions of the Royal Martian Geographical Society (TRMGS) published by Heliograph, Inc., and The Familiar magazine. TRMGS material is indexed using page numbers from the Heliograph reprints, not the original fanzine.
Please note that the extent of description varies a great deal, depending on the particular source. Some city descriptions include maps, detailed descriptions of locations, and a run-down of the political and economic situation. Others are barely more than a paragraph, giving only very general information. I have also included references to adventures set in cities, if those adventures contain any city description material at all.
For those interested in writing for TRMGS, I might note that no city descriptions exist for the Oenotrian Empire, the Boreosyrtis League, the Tossian Empire, or the Belgian Coprates. The German trade stations in Western Dioscuria on Mars and all of the colonies on Venus other than the German one are also undetailed. So get to it!
