Game Inspirations

So when looking at Cosmic Defenders one might ask, what is the tone? What inspirations does the GM call upon to craft the canvas with which the campaign will be painted upon? Below are some movies/franchises that encourages my muse. Please don’t think that I have this narrow focus when it comes to science fiction. I love Star Wars and Star Trek and the Honorverse novels. I just think that in terms of this game these properties listed below-in no particular order-best reflect what I’m going for.  As you can see the range in style goes from the gritty to the ridiculous, but hey, it's a big insane universe out there and you never know what you'll run into.

Thor Ragnarok

Space Battleship Yamato

Legion of Super Heroes

Harlock, Space Pirate

The Fifth Element



Tenchi Muyo!


Valerian and The City of A Thousand Planets

Space Ghost

Heavy Metal

Guardians of The Galaxy

Guardians of The Galaxy (earlier 00's comic)

Star Power
