A Car Wars (4th Edition) Web Page by S. John Ross & Friends

This is the memorial homepage and Vehicle Stock List of HASTUR - formerly the Fredericksburg, Virginia area's premier society of autoduellists, and chapter of the American Autoduel Association. Chartered on the 5th of July, 2045 and officially disbanded on the 5th of August, 2052, HASTUR was dedicated to safe duelling, the exploration of the cosmos, contact with Elder Beings, and the interests of good motorists up and down the local expanse of Interstate 95 (and the dreaded Highway One).

July 2045 TagsOur original headquarters was located on Jefferson Davis Highway, adjacent to the Robert's Point Memorial (see ADQ 9/3), and the second (downtown) HQ was abandoned when the then-High Priest, S. John Ross, left the bosom of darkness to infiltrate the heart of the AADA itself. He served as AADA president in 2048. He is currently in exile, last rumored to be forming a personal army somewhere near Denver, Colorado. HASTUR's second and final High Priest, Chris Reid, took the cloak of leadership, promised to launch HASTUR to glory, and ... took the bulk of the organization deeper into hiding. HASTUR has not been heard from in any official capacity since. HASTUR's final headquarters was located somewhere in the wild wasteland just beyond the walls of fortified Fredericksburg.

HASTUR's Unspeakable Miscellany

  • For GURPS Autoduel fans, we have the Carmaker's Cribsheet, to help Autoduel cars feel more like their Car Wars counterparts, and be easier to build!
  • HASTUR engineers operating in Oklahoma were the designers of the Sonic Cannon (one of the last handful of new Uncle Albert's items of 1st-4th Edition era). The catalog entry includes stats for both original Car Wars and GURPS Autoduel.
  • If you've worn the corners off your old turning keys, or if you just need some blank counters in regulation Car Wars sizes, you may find the HASTUR Car Wars Emergency Kit useful (93kb ZIPped Acrobat file). Print, cut and play. Plus, turning keys that say "HASTUR" are like all other things that say HASTUR: groovy and death-defying.
  • Finally, you may enjoy the Six-Sheet Arena (ZIPped Acrobat file), which isn't specifically for Car Wars ... Rather, it's for any sort of game where an arena might be handy. It'll fit neatly on a coffee table and provide a place to ... arene, I suppose. Whatever folks do in arenas. Anyway, you'll find the visual style pleasantly familiar ...
