Does any one know of some good rules for the ERB Barsoom milieu?
I have considered using AD&D 2nd ed, minus magic $ cetera.
But, are there any extant rules? Excepting the SPI 1979 game.
Quality has a quantity of its own

Savage Worlds has a "Mars" setting supplement if you're interested in RPG.

There's a fan-made PDF of a Barsoom supplement for D&D at http://www.grey-elf.com/dnd/barsoom.pdf

You'll need the original D&D rules or some close variant thereof though.

Rattrap's Fantastic Worlds is pretty much tailor-made for Barsoomian adventure on the small skirmish/RPG level...

There are two PDFs floating around, one of them is missing two pages though.

I got the original 1979 D&D rules, and the 1981 AD&D DM Guide and Player's Handbook, those do?

I'm not familiar with Savage Worlds. Is that a company, a rules set, or what? Ubercool name tho ain't it? :D

Savage worlds is a setting-agnostic RPG system - my RPG of choice, actually.  Generally you need the core rules and the setting book you're using, though they do have "Showdown", which is the combat engine stripped of all that pesky roleplaying stuff and pared down to be a good skirmish game.  Showdown is a free download on their site.

I'm just the messenger, but glad I could help. Somebody posted it here a year or so ago, as I used to play D&D back in the day I kept it on file...
