This cover from "Planet Stories," March 1952, almost perfectly captures what I imagine when I think about a high level Psychic Knight floating in on an enchanted flame to lead an assault on the robot overlords of Saturn. You could pretty much take any issue of "Planet Stories" and get a dozen ideas for Crawljammer adventures and character classes and magic items and other awesome stuff.
Spoiler warning: I plan to steal a BUNCH of ideas from "Planet Stories." It's fertile ground. It's the perfect kind of space fantasy. And those covers -- this one's by Allen Gustav Anderson -- are gorgeous.
