Does Anyone Remember Playing Red Steel?


I've been reading and loving the Red Steel campaign setting for the last little bit but I don't remember ever hearing of anyone that played it. The setting has some of the coolest ideas I've seen in a published setting to date. Best I can tell there were only two or three publications for the setting and I'm at a loss as to why it would be skipped over.

So I'm looking for some answers. Has anyone out there ever played in it? What were the weaknesses of the setting and its strengths? Any fond memories? And most importantly did it kick ass or did it suck?

    Downloaded the old free pdfs for the savage coast from wizards. Looked like fun, thought about maybe converting it for a time (to Pathfinder/d20). Had other ideas then, though.
    Take a look at this thread, and espescially these downloads, here:

  2. I think I might dig it out and revisit it, thanks for bringing it back into the light.

  3. I recall the gonzo science/fantasy of Red Steel; had a nice mechanism for enforcing the price of power and abilities. You could be most anything you wanted to, as long as you could abide what you became.

    1. That's what I'm getting out of it too, and I think it's pretty boss.
