JTAS from Mongoose. This looks really good. There will be lots of stuff from the original JTAS from GDW that will be updated. There will also be some new stuff.
Mongoose has delivered some really nice kickstarters in the past. The only thing that worries me is Brexit.
There is a 112 page free preview that can be downloaded now.
One interesting thing in the preview is the Miniphants. In the Mongoose Sword World module they were not described as in the old JTAS #16. But in the preview, the Miniphants have not been changed from the original. That is a good thing. This means that Mongoose is de-canonizing their own (or parts of their own) problematic Sword World module. 🙂
Squadron Strike: Traveller is a Kickstarter project for a game of Traveller Space Combat. It looks quite clever and a lot easier to play than Mayday.
It has already reached a few stretch goals, so if you need (or just want) a Traveller Space Combat game, then you should check it out.
Marc Miller has written a book. You can order it by supporting his kickstarter campaign.
Today I got my Fat Cat. I have waited a long time for this Kickstarter sponsored book to arrive. I had to wait for some extra time, since my copy was lost in the mail.
But now it is here and it looks great. The images of the ship may appear a bit more plastic, but I think the deck-plans looks really great in the dead tree version.
My initial review of the pdf is almost three years old. You can still get the pdf version of the Fat Cat at DriveThruRPG.
If you was a Kickstarter backer and haven’t recieved your copy yet, then you should contact David Blalock
Simon Stålenhag is a talented artist. He has published one book with his images in Swedish. There are not only the images, there are interesting and fun stories as well. Veronica gave this book to me as a Christmas present.
Now, the book is translated to English. A second book is also produced. Crowdfunding on Kickstarter is used. In just three hours, the project was funded.
