Trail of the Scorpion

The Trail of the Scorpion is the first series-long collection of episodes for Rocket Age. It takes our heroes from Venus, to Earth, on to Mars, Ganymede, and finally to the moons of Saturn. Along the way they will discover and fight the machinations of the mysterious Red Scorpion crime syndicate and its shadowy leader. There will be puzzles to solve, battles to win, chases, betrayals, and high adventure.

The Trail of the Scorpion contains six new adventures. The book also contains complete write-ups of three new organizations, including the Red Scorpion crime syndicate and its machinations, along with plot hooks, new weapons and equipment and even some strange new creatures to encounter.

This 128-page book contains:
  • Six thrilling adventures, each of which can be played on its own, or as part of a linked campaign, that take in the length and breadth of the Solar System.
  • Detailed background on the Red Scorpion Crime Syndicate and its machinations throughout the Solar System… and beyond!
  • Two new organisations to help or hinder our heroes – the Greater Ganymedians and the Order of the Scribe.
  • New equipment, including the latest development in robobrain technology.
  • New creatures, from the strange botanical Terrolinian Wolf found in the forests of Ganymede to the huge White Tree Grubs native to Venus.
The Trail of the Scorpion is 128 pages with black and white interior.

Written by Ken Spencer, Matthew Haines, James M. Spahn and Anne Toole, with art and design by Paul Bourne, Jon Hodgson and Scott Purdy.
