Work is progressing on Further Vistas, though slower than anticipated. This is because I’ve decided to produce atlas-style maps of each planet, in both mercator and polar projections, and it’s quite time consuming! So far one planet has been completed – so 16 to go (plus star systems, plus alien races…).
Here’s a sneak peak of how the mapping will look, in this case for the planet of Oranto:
Traditionally, my summer holiday has been a good time for game inspirations, and so it has proved this year. After much deliberation I have settled on my next game project. It will be a follow-up to sci-fi resource Distant Vistas, focussing on star systems, inhabited planets and alien races. Provisionally titled Further Vistas, I hope to have it ready some time in the autumn.
Once that is done there will be another catalogue, which means another free game! I will be sticking with the recent Argor theme of free games, probably another RPG scenario/wargame combination.
Hope you’re all having a good summer (in the northern hemisphere at least!). Au revoir, as they say around here!
Ok, not too sure why but there has been a sudden surge in interest in Vectis, our Napoleonic War game that features a fictional invasion of the Isle of Wight. Most especially the printed version, available from lulu.com.
This is a quite a surprise as the game has been around for a long while, and generally sales are for the download version. But heck, I’m not complaining!
If by any chance you’re interested in the printed version of Vectis, just click here.
The recording of an English-language online session using Argor rules with the RPGS game world is now available for viewing here.
Also, there’s another video review to watch, posted by one of the players of this session, Jeremiah McCoy.
The English-language review of Argor has been posted now by François. And he likes it! (Phew…!). Go and see what he thinks by clicking here.
Just lately I’ve been contacted by a Canadian guy called François Letarte who asked about using the Argor FRPG rules to run an online RPGS session. I said “yes”, of course. François runs a bilingual (French and English) RPG Youtube channel that you can find here.
On Sunday 8th May François will l be running a live stream of an English language session of RPGS using Argor rules: click on the link above for more information. For the Francophones among you, he has already run a French language session. Prior to that he did a video review of Argor (again in French… hope he said nice things!).
At the second attempt, Draken Games Catalogue 8 is ready for you right now! This features even more free stuff than usual: a mini-scenario for Argor FRPG AND a mini-wargame. You can play them in combination or stand-alone, your choice!
