And then there's the undeniable similarity between the M&M Nergold Sector and Renée Duvall's Millyverse.
Clarification: Both Renée Duvall and the roleplaying game do not exist and are just figments of my imagination

I'm probably quite a lot older than you think, lol. Star Frontier was the first RPG I ever bought (way back when) .
I based the M&M design/layout on the first D&D editions. D&D was red, Star Frontier (also from TSR) had more or less the same layout but had a purple colour scheme. That's why I chose blue for M&M
Yup, the "creases and damage" look is just a black and white texture overlayed in screen mode. And a bit of touch up. And then some gradients overlayed for the shadow/light effect on the right and left side.
I did it in Affinity Designer, but almost any graphics program should be able to do it, as long as it has layers and layer blend modes. Affinity Photo, Photoshop, Corel Paint, Gimp, etc
