RPG Media Monday - The Herculoids

If you wanted to run a bizarre RPG campaign you could do a lot worse than to model it on The Herculoids!  This was a show that debuted in the late Sixties for a brief run of 18 episodes (split into 36 eleven-minute segments) then even more briefly resurfaced in the early Eighties.  The Herculoids "battled to defend their planet from menaces on Amzot/Quasar and from outer space. All of the Herculoids displayed Human-level intelligence—employing precision teamwork and complex tactics—as well as emotions, and Zandor and Tara both displayed a working knowledge of complex alien technologies as well as the ability to pilot interstellar spacecraft. But essentially, Zandor, Tara, Dorno, and the Herculoids were all apparently fighting to keep Amzot/Quasar a technology-free, primitive planet."  Read more about it here.

You can pick up the episodes from here.
