The free quick start adventure for Cavaliers of Mars is now available at DriveThruRPG. This demos the Wushu version of the rules; the full version will include both Wushu and Barbarians of Lemuria.
Return now to dying Mars in its last age of glory.
A planet of flashing swords and choking sands, of winking courtesans and lantern-lit canal cities. Mars, where fortune and death are two sides of the same obsidian chit, where lost cities and dry oceans stretch between the last bastions of civilization. Where the First Martians, the monument-builders, are but a haunted memory. Where the Red Martians become decadent and reckless in their last days. Where the Green Martians rule the wastes, remembering a history whose weight would crush a lesser people.
Tonight, find yourself in Vance at festival time. When revolutionaries strike a visiting prince, you’ll need to explore the city’s dark underbelly, before racing across its towered tombs! Save lives, end lives, and earn your water!
Live, fight, and love on Mars, a world of red death and strange mystery, a world of savagery and romance.
The quick start includes:
- A complete adventure set in one of dying Mars’ greatest remaining cities.
- The innovative Wushu rules, for high-flying, swashbuckling adventure.
- Five pre-generated player characters, ready to get into the heart of the action.

I picked this up from RPGNOW last night and was really impressed. I’m not a huge Wushu fan, but the hints of setting and culture provided in the Quickstart have got me hooked. I need more! Quickly!
I’m glad you dig it! The core book will be a little while yet, but I’ll be posting content here as we develop it.
I’ve been looking for some quick one-shot things to try out new systems – and this is going to be my entrance into Wushu, which I’ve read about before but never tried. It looks great!
Probably worth mentioning: the quick start rules don’t specify what size dice the Wushu system uses. Mind you, neither do the Wushu Open rules, though they do mention a Trait maximum of 5, which allows me to deduce I should be using six sided dice. 😉
Yes, d6s. 🙂
Looking forward to trying the QuickStart rules with my gaming group tonight. I really like the hints of setting, and the system. Nice job on the Apprentice’s Tale story as well–great introduction to the world.
