POLL DESCRIPTION

Last October, we announced a contest to kick off our Victorian Science Fiction Project - to design the first scenario in the campaign! The winning scenario will be featured in a series of articles here at TMP.

Brigade Models, a major manufacturer of models for the VSF game Aeronef, is providing Aeronef vouchers for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in the contest (£40.00 GBP, £25.00 GBP and £15.00 GBP respectively).

Japanese Aeronef from Brigade Models

The requirements were:

  1. the scenario must be set on Mars
  2. Space travel was been invented in the 19th Century, and Earth's major powers - Britain, France, Germany, and others - are competing to control Mars and its natives. In the low gravity of Mars, flying ships are a major form of transportation.
  3. Scenario must include map and list of recommended miniatures (right down to catalog numbers)
  4. choice of rules, scale of figures, type of game are up to the scenario designer
  5. fluff (fictional introduction) optional

All sixteen entries have been published, and now it's time to determine five Finalists. You may vote for up to five candidates.

(Maps or art have been provided below as a guide to remembering the scenarios. Please do not base your votes solely on the basis of these maps.)
