Sci-Fi Updates

During my recent blogging hiatus, a couple interesting things happened on the science-fiction front:

1. Goblinoid Games' Starships and Spacemen 2nd Edition came out! I was one of the project's initial backers on Kickstarter, so my hardback copy arrived in the mail a few weeks ago.

While I would one day love to run a pure S&S game, right now I am so busy running Labyrinth Lord games that this fine product is most likely going to see immediate use as a supplement to the games I've already got running. That is, I will cherry pick robots and equipment and monsters and the like from the S&S rulebook for use in my ongoing Arandish LL campaigns. Remember that I warned you long ago about my penchant  for including sci-fi elements in my fantasy. Gonzo lives!


2. The 2013 Traveller Calendar also became available. I now quote from an email sent by Marc Miller to the Traveller5 mailing list:

"The annual Traveller Calendar was the brainchild of Andrew Boulton, who for the past several years has assembled a truly talented band of artists to produce the calendar, proceeds of which went to various good causes.

"Sadly Andrew passed away this year and it looked like the next calendar would not happen. But the artists would not let that happen: Ian Stead stepped forward to manage the project; the artists all stepped forward with truly great Traveller art, and all wanted to make this a tribute to Andrew.

"Everyone donated their time; the Traveller permissions and licensing (as always) was donated.

"Now you are the last link in the chain: we hope you enjoy this calendar as much as we enjoyed putting it together."

The print version of the 2013 Traveller Calendar is available at Lulu and the PDF version at DriveThruRPG
