FLOATING VAGABOND

Tales from the Floating Vagabond is a science-fiction role-playing game by Lee Garvin, bpublished by Avalon Hill in 1991. It has the tagline “Ludicrous Adventure in a Universe Whose Natural Laws Are Out To Lunch”. The game takes a comedic approach to the genre, encouraging the gamemaster to begin each adventure in an outer space bar called The Floating Vagabond. Players choose from races such as humans, elves, Disgustingly Cute Furry Things, and Dogmen, learn skills like “Look Good at All Times” and “Projectile Vomiting”, and consume dangerous beverages containing toxic substances such as a singularity. The flexibility of the rules system allows for making characters from any genre, epoch, or world, as well as creating new races and superheroes.
