Freebie reminder!   Leave a comment

Don’t forget, if you download our utterly free catalogue you get two free games with it: an Argor FRPG mini-scenario AND a mini-wargame. You can either play them in combination (with the scenario outcome affecting the battle) or as stand-alone games. You need to have the rules for Argor to play the scenario, but the wargame comes complete with its own rules.

Get Catalogue 8 while you can: I’m working on the freebie for Catalogue 9, and once that’s done Catalogue 8 – and its free games – will be withdrawn.

Just click on the image below to go to our store at drivethruRPG, where you can download the catalogue for free.

Announcing ‘Further Vistas: Stars & Systems’   Leave a comment

Yes, finally, we have a new product out! As mentioned in the last update, it’s a follow-up to 2011’s Distant Vistas (2011? Where did the time go!). Distant Vistas is a sci-fi RPG resource that gives a GM a broad introduction to a sector of space: as the name suggests, Further Vistas: Stars & Systems (hereafter FV:S&S to save typing!) builds on the star systems introduced in Distant Vistas. While Distant Vistas mentioned 25 star systems, full details were only given for four of them. FV:S&S completes that work, giving full details of all 25 stars and their planetary systems. Details of each planet are given, with information on any intelligent inhabitants and any significant military hardware they may have. There’s also a bit of history given to put the whole sector in context.

As with Distant Vistas, we hope FV:S&S will be of some help for GMs seeking that bit of inspiration for their next sci-fi campaign setting. And it’s all yours for just $2.95!

Click on the image below to have a look at the product at drivethrurpg.com, where you can see a free preview of the first few pages if you want.

Back to work!   Leave a comment

A long-overdue update, due to a number of things keeping me busy, plus some false starts in developing a sports-based game! So, back to the plan for a follow-up to Distant Vistas, our sci-fi RPG supplement. This Further Vistas project is back on now, and to speed things up we will be doing this as a series of short, affordable follow-up supplements rather than one large one.

For the time being the planetary atlases are being put on hold to allow me to work on Further Vistas: Systems. This will feature information on all the star systems mentioned in Distant Vistas, with details of every single planet.

Watch this space for more news about the publication date!
