Hello! I am Donald Hosford (aka: SirDonzer, also Donzerme(AT)Yahoo.com The old @ACD.net address is defunct.). First let me say that I am truly honored and humbled that my little game made it onto the awesomeness that is BoardGameGeek!
Yes, I wrote StarCadets. All those years ago, I ran across various "rules lite" rpgs. (Games like Reindeer Games's TWERPS - The Worlds Easiest Role Playing Game) And I thought I could write one of those... After a couple of months it was finished. Along the way, I decided it needed a gimmick to make it stand out. I settled on two: First, the entire game should fit onto one side of a sheet of paper. Second, that the title should be bigger than the rules. (Count the lines of the rules block, and the title block. The Title block is larger! LOL.)
It has been described as a parody of Traveller. (Its not, but a copy of the Traveller Book was handy...) Or it is an outline for a system. (LOL, this page was all that existed.) I created it from a whole cloth. Just a simple little game of my own. It seemed like a cool idea to share it.
I have a blog at https://sirdonzersgames.blogspot.com/ On the right hand side, click on StarCadets.
In the links section here is a link to a PDF version, with an aliens supplement!
The PDF version looks much better than the HTML version.
