published some photos of his copy (here, here and following, partial rules here), I had to make what I could to play the game with my Valley Games version. I made the following some time ago :

Files are here :
Muster chart
Battle boards(I didn't make the reckoning board yet as I don't know how it works)
Now, if someone with the gorgonstar rules would be kind enough to upload them here it'd be great.

Sorry to resurrect this thread after three years, but I was wondering if anyone had any info on how the old Gorgonstar "reckoning" worked. I haven't been able to find much online about it, other than that it was a multiplayer sort of thing.

Also - those VG style battleboards are gorgeous!

I have scanned my Gorgonstar Titan rules and will try to figure out how to share them. I wish I could just upload them to BGG, but getting the consent of the copyright holder from 35 years ago seems unlikely.

Yeah, I understand the difficulty in posting copyrighted materials. If something can be figured out, then that's great, but thanks for trying either way - I just think it would be really cool to try a game with the full original Gorgonstar ruleset, even though it seems like most folks consider them to be quite inferior to the Battlelands rules.

On the page (http://wolff.to/titan/) that provides a link to the
PDF I put the following disclaimer:
(Note that I don't actually have permission to do this and may have to remove this if asked by one of the copyright holders. However I think there is very little chance that the Gorgonstar version of Titan will ever be reprinted (hence this is unlikely to damage the copyright holders) and is historical interest to at least some people playing under the current rules.)
