News calender week 45



Greetings!
I'm predicted it in my last Newspost! Was some time away from my Blog and promptly Jeff Combos resurfaced. The magic power of my procrastination!
But this power is to strong for a merely mortal man like me. So, read a new Update.



Starting with the Kickstarter for the Cthulhu Codicil. After a really slow growing support for this project, TAG decided to unlock all the writing stretchgoal (almost every Stretchgoal) to give it a little push. As a backer you get now a 196 Pages book in exclusive hardcover. Retail will be 170 pages in softcover. The project is at the moment at 1000 ₤ past the finish line.
Congratulations for Wiggy and his Team!
You have 45 hours left to become a Backer and catch yourself some extra pages!
Starts with 20₤ for the PDF, or 35₤ for the book (+shipping)

Shortly after releasing the Quantum Black:Dark Design PDF for the Kickstarter Backers it hit the Shelfs at DriveThru. You need more Guns, more Monster and more everything? Check it out!

Black Campbell Entertainment wrote a little something about the Istanbul Sourcebook in the making.

Work is moving on the Istanbul book. Intro chapter is done, and the chapter on the various groups active in the city -- NKVD, SS, and others -- is well underway. Estimated final page count on this is going to be in the same range as the Shanghai book, between 70-90 pages with at least two adventures bundled in.

Sounds promising!

Also, they shared some real weird vehicle.

From the Pony populated lands of Roan we get some News about the coming expansion World at War.

I'm currently writing out the benefits for each country in Roan, as well as the flaws that might plague them. The countries I’m working on so far are of course Roan, Canidia, Zebrica, The Empire of the Walking Sands, Falconigrad, Crowasia, and Ratvaria.
The primary rolls for game play are pretty much set in stone, including basic unit builds, but specialty units are still in the works and I’ll be needing testers again to see how well the Platoon system works!

There seems to be some interesting new Ideas in this book that you can steal for your own games, even if you are not into Ponies.



Here we have some great Fanwork which was shared on the Space:1989 group on facebook.
Michal Blum found this picture of an old telegram and made some forms for you out of it.

The original United Kingdom form, a New South Wales telegram form from Michael Blum and a martian Syriis Lapis version of it.

Lou Gannon shared a description of a british Tea House. Bradley House is a ideal place of gathering for your adventurers!


Jeff Combos posted an Update in his Perils of Mars Campign. I'm sharing this with all of you.

Ghost of Mars

Hi everyone,
It's been a while, and I'm very sorry for the radio silence. Today was my first day off work in almost a month, so needless to say, I've been busy. Unfortunately, that means I've been busy on non-Mars related business, so I don't have any major updates apart from confirming that I'm still alive and still chipping away at the adventures
As I mentioned in my previous update, the plan was to hire some folks to help me get these long-overdue adventures out the door, but that hasn't happened yet. Despite tightening my belt, it's taking longer than expected to dig my way out of the financial hole that my previous employer left me in. Thus, I've continued to be the only one working on the adventures, and as I mentioned at the start of this update, I haven't had much time. The good news is that this is an upward spiral and not a downward one. The crunch time at my day job was around two big conventions, which are now over, and my work schedule is now expected to return to normal. Also, with every paycheck I add a little more to the war chest, and as soon as I have enough to pay for some outside help, I'll do that
I'm sure your patience with me has likely run out by now, and I totally understand why, but I want you to know that the plan has not changed, it's just taking me longer to execute on it. Also, letting so much time go by without an update is not acceptable, regardless of how busy I may be. To that end, I'll try to post more frequently, even if only to let you know where things stand so you don't feel like this project is abandoned. 
The Red Planet is a cold, desolate place, but it still has a wild, half-crazed castaway wandering it's surface, scribbling its secrets onto the page...

Really hope he comes back on his feet now. I try to contact him about a license for my own Ubiquity Ideas for a while...
Keep it on!


Feel free to share this article as you want. New readers are always nice to have.
Any Mistakes? Forgot something? You want to share your stuff or release your own article here?
Let me know!

Sincerely,

2019 Week 3

Greetings!
This week we have an fantastic HEX-Podcast and a Cthulhu-Preorder from Triple Ace Games. I have to write it again. Preorder. NOT a Kickstarter. We life in an age of wonder.
Check it out!


A Preorder NOT A KICKSTARTER for a new Leagues of Cthulhu Book.

“I wandered lonely as dead Cthulhu
Whose dreams float on high o’er vales and hills”
Cumbria, with its majestic fells and glittering lakes, has embraced industrialization and yet refuses to release its grip on the past. It is a land once wandered not only by the poet William Wordsworth, but also by the Elder Things and Fungi from Yuggoth.
This supplement for Leagues of Cthulhu explores the English county of Cumbria in the Late Victorian Era. Contents include:
A history of the region stretching back to the dawn of timeAn overview of the local cultureOver 30 locations, many with adventure seedsA new tainted BloodlineA list of notable dignitaries, statistics for stock characters, and a new cult – The Brotherhood of the Maimed King

Airships of the Pulp Era - der Versuch einer Rezension

Verlag: Black Campbell Entertainment Autor: Scott Rhymer Sprache: Englisch Erscheinungsdatum: Juli 2018 Umfang: 54 Seiten Preis: 8,57€ Erhältlich: Watermarked PDF durchDriveThru
Worum geht es? Airships of the Pulp Era dreht sich wie der Titel schon erahnen lässt, um die Luftschiffe jener Jahre zwischen den Weltkriegen, als es durchaus real erschien, in ihnen die Zukunft der Luftfahrt vor sich zu haben.
Was ist drin:

Zu Anfang gibt es eine umfangreiche Einleitung zum Thema des Buches. Ein Überblick über die Geschichte der Luftschifffahrt führt sanft in das Thema ein um dann zu den wichtigen Fragen zu wechseln. Wie funktionieren Luftschiffe? Was für verschiedene Typen gibt es? Wie reist es sich in ihnen? Was für Menschen arbeiten in ihnen? Im nächsten Abschnitt gibt Scott Rhymer uns einige Ideen und Vorschläge, wie mit ein paar kleinen Stellschrauben die tatsächliche Historie der Luftschiffe so verändert werden kann, dass sie wirklich zu den weit verbreiteten Behemoths der Lüfte ge…

This summer is hot in Germany and it is hot in Ubiquity-Land, too. That much is going on this year. It makes me happy to see all the new stuff coming out for Ubiquity!
Have your News:
Robert, the creator of Roan wants to expand his RPG about Diesel-Punk-Ponies. Roan WORLD AT WAR is planned to go on Kickstarter in December.
Roan is going to enter into a World War which will follow an abstract use of warfare with platoon vs. platoon combat.
A lot of balancing is going into creating the various platoons. Future additions whether to the main book or as micro expansions will include creating airships, ships, and other types of vehicle combat. A lot more that really can’t be presented in such a short summary!



Sound amazing to me, even if you (like me) don''t like the idea of using Ponies as characters!
