Volume One: Martian Racing Federation

Martian Racing Federation is a new game mode for Gaslands, in which you pilot high-speed anti-grav racers across the red sands of Mars. It uses the Gaslands movement templates but is a stand-alone game in its own right. All the rules you need to play are included in Volume One of BLASTER.

In Martian Racing Federation the vehicles are high-tech, high-spec, exquisitely expensive and lovingly maintained. Because of this, the Martian Racing Federation game mode changes many of the fundamental rules of Gaslands. Covert up some high-tech grav-racers and tear across the dusty plains of the Red Planet!
