It's a very handy resource, but unfortunately contains errors and poorply presented explanations.

Reading about the Technical class you'll find yourself having to go through a few pages just to piece together "Operations", which it's first mention is barely explained. With alternating phrases from robot, machine in place.

Errors like In "Stranger in a Strange Land " The word "MC" There is no other mention of this word or WHO it means. A family meal and a meal for one each costing a single coin.

This guide seems to have what it wants to do in mind, but it seems to lack the needed editing not to bug the next GM while trying to learn it.

I am glad I purchased this. After falling in love with Dungeon World, I picked up this supplement. At first glance, this is a well done science fiction adaption of the Dungeon World rules. In addition, it is a testament to the flexibility and adaptability of the Apocalypse World/Dungeon World core rule base. As I started to dig in, I realized the author referring to things like "Science Fantasy" instead of science fiction and was blown away when I realized that this is meant to be added on to Dungeon World. Although, there is enough here that you can play just with the material in this book, your games will be fuller and more enriched if you include it all. Most of my Science Fiction comes from Isaac Asimov and Piers Anthony and this fit right in. I had wonderful images of a robot, mutant, dwarven cleric and a human bard exploring a Byzanium mine on an alien world in search of The Eternal Gauntlet all while worried if they could get it before the violent sand storms on the surface buried their ship. The Game Master (GM) section on world building is rich in giving you ideas of strange new worlds to take the party too.

This book is exactly the supplement you want to play games in the same genre as John Carter, Buck Rogers, Flash Gordon, and believe it or not Futurama. This realization made it difficult for me to NOT see Fry as the Earthling, Prof Farnsworth as the Technician, Leela as the Mutant, and Bender as the Engine of Destruction. It's a great looking book with art from the era the game is based off of. If you are a fan of "Swords & Planets" style fantasy and want to use Dungeon World as your game system then this is the book for you.

Fun - takes the other half of those tropes from our fantastic and sci-fi heritage and injects them quickly and easily into a great and flexible rule set

I like DW, I like robots and rocketmen. I like Martian Princesses and Rayguns

There's some rules for space combat and such that I have not had come in handy but would be fun to try.
