GMD Members MVP Newsletter #8

I have been working on some projects for the past week.

Pegasus Engine CORE RPG: Not long now!

Half of the box set books have been assembled. I have two sets of perfect-bound books and 2 saddle-stitched book sets to complete. I am slightly behind schedule but hoping to complete the books in the next day or so.

That said, I have completed combining the box set of books into one mammoth 340-page book! Ready for the PDF and the Hard Back. I have printed off the Prototype and will be assembling the hardback book soon.

Depending on how well they turn out, they may become available to members and public in the near future.

I am super excited about completing this mammoth project. It has been years!! I will then start to work on the accompanying books such as CORE Worlds and Guide Books as well as Adventures etc... As always, members will get a say in which content gets developed first. I have a plan for that and will be unveiled soon! Oh, the mystery!

Check out the latest Miniatures!

The Story So Far...

17 Khan'in Ships entered the Signus System!

Captain Eldari gave the command to jump to Starfall and head to their destination. Just as the countdown was halfway through Ensign Harris pointed out that Signus Relay Tower was undefended.

Calling a halt to the jump, he ordered their destination to be scrambled from the Khan'in fleet. While a rescue operation ensued to extract all personnel from the station. Bruuk led a security detail to rush the Alliance personnel from the tower to the Intrepid. While the faster of the Khan'in fleet's ships raced towards them. As soon as they were in missile range they launched...

Alarms screamed across the Intrepids bridge while waiting for the shuttle to return. Eldari gave the order to start the jump timer and to jump as soon as they were able. The Shuttle returned with only a minute to spare.

The Intrepid jumped, leaving the missile to continue along a path with no targets, except for those aimed at the tower.

Arriving at the Neros System to continue their search for a Vrosk, Clone and Anthraboid to unlock the security files required to complete their mission set by the previous President Talaimara. The Intrepid did not stall for time and headed straight for the training academy.

On arrival, they were given a presidential welcome.

A long talk to the heads of the facility met with some resistance to leave, despite being told of the Khan'in fleet that is almost on their doorstep!

Pegasus Engine CORE RPG Rules Notes

After a successful diplomatic discussion, the Heads agreed to evacuate the system. But how, was still to be arranged...

Meanwhile, Loev informed the Captain of his displeasure with the whole situation and for destroying one of their own during a previous battle at Signus.

The Mission balances on a knife's edge, and enemies are appearing from all angles, now the Intrepids crew begins to crumble under the pressure... will they prevail?

The Story So Far...

The Polarian Battleship 'PASN Korn' continued to approach with its Shields raised and weapons armed. The ship's Captain commanded Eldari to hand over the Intrepid and prepare to be boarded.

Acting President/Captain Eldari informed the Polarian of the new government structure. But the Polarian would not have it. Informing the 'Acting President' that his actions are illegitimate and that the Alliance is in a state of War, which leadership defaults to Admiral Tyron.

When Eldari refused once more, the Battleship launched Missiles. To the horror of the crew and the Intrepids escorts they found themselves defending themselves from one of their own!

But the Intrepid's small fleet made short work of the Polarian Battleship!

Pegasus Engine CORE RPG Rules Notes

With the destruction of the Korn, the Intrepids crew got to work collecting survivors and placing them in the Brigg overseen by medical staff.

It was all too much for the newly revived Commander Lomanata, who passed out and was rushed to Medical Bay.

A decision was made to locate the last remaining state representatives. When they recalled a Polarian Academy was not far from their location.

Acting Commander Covis, struggled with the circumstances, challenging the crew and the captain at every turn before requesting to be relieved.

Captain Eldari, decided that lingering in the system was dangerous and that they needed to leave soon! As if to answer his worries, the sensors picked up 17 unidentified ships entering the system!

Pegasus Engine Print Run!

What is your favourite genre? Leave a comment below...

So... What's Ocuring?

I have been working on some projects for the past week.

Pegasus Engine CORE RPG: Printing Has Began!

All the Covers for all the books in the Limited Edition Premium Box Set and member copies have been printed and are now Laminated.

The Internal pages for Book 1 CORE RPG are on the press! A little bit of work here!

Encounter Cards

A stock of Encounter Cards has been printed and is waiting for finishing and packing for the Expo!

These beautifully illustrated Quick Reference Cards save the Encounters Guide from wear and tear and are an amazing GM Game Aide.

I use them for my games and they save so much time and space. I have purposefully designed them to make my job as Games Master easier, and hope that will make it easier for you too!

Miniatures

Check out the latest Miniatures!

Miniature Show Case

The latest miniature has been added to our range The Lortan Looter. These Alien scavengers have arrived in Luna City with nothing to their names. They scrape a living by trashing stores and joining gangs of organised crime. The Wardens round them up on sight for the deportation tank. Will your Strike Force Crime Squad have a Lortan or two?

Once Strike Force has been completed I will be working on a full set of Squad stats for Alien Scum by DSM Miniatures. Who has kindly provided permission to include his miniatures as part of our Strike Force Start Box!

As well as Strike Force Stats, I will also create a race profile for use in Starfall.

Can you guess what it is? Leave a comment below... Also, would you prefer ready-painted miniatures?

Hard Back Books

Only backers waiting for their Hardback books do not have their rewards. I have merged all the books and so far it is sitting at a mammoth 340 pages! This will shrink by the time I have taken out the record sheets and contents of each book. But still, what a tome!

Things are hotting up with production of the Expo stock and a few machines needing maintenance. So Time has been limited, but I am sure I will be able to complete the hardback in a week or so.

Winter Pack

Rewards are being printed! My weekend was filled with laminating covers... Not a task I enjoy one bit. But it is done and I am in the process of printing out over 100 books to send to Members.

The plan is to start postage by the end of the week! But this is not written in stone, it all depends ho other tasks that are not popping into the to-do list get on. Also, I have my printing business products to deal with too. But everything is being handled and I hope to remain on target.

Once this has been completed I will make a start on the Easter XP Chart. Giving you all plenty of time to start ordering your Easter Pack. Not a member? then join now and start saving up some XP, also your support will help me afford to create some new products!

Online Solo Adventures

I am planning to start the online Solo adventures. If I can I will start them very soon, currently, it is looking likely to start in June once, Expo is over. Watch this space though!

You may have noticed that I have been adding some virtual rewards for you to collect each week. These will all be needed to p[artake in the online solo adventures as well as the characters I have been adding to the Featured Characters List.

I am experimenting with the backend software to see what works for the Member's experience. The More members we attract the more I can afford to add. As it costs quite a bit each year! So a massive thank you to all my existing members who have helped bring the experience to life. You have managed to build up quite the XP and reward stockpile to give you a boost!

I will add a dedicated page for each element as soon as time allows. But first, let's get you some extra rewards...

The Story So Far...

The Intrepid is currently in orbit around the Sector Signal Tower in the Signus system within Polarian Alliance Sector PA-02-04.

Managing to decrypt the file with fantastic teamwork (Lucky Dice Rolls and Poor Dice Rolls by me!). the priority message was displayed. They learn the keys are the heads of state, the Decrypted file suddenly disbands the current Polarian Alliance government and appoints Captain Eldari as its current leader. It then instructs him to appoint 12 heads of state to unlock the location of the Vault. It appears they are the keys.

Each of the founding races is required to be assigned as a head of state. Captain Eldari does not waste time and starts appointing crew members to the position. Acting Commander Loev complains, but Eldari explains that time is against them! They must locate the vault if they are to learn how to defeat the Polarian enemies.

They release quickly they do not have all the races aboard. It appears their tour to collect all the races was orchestrated by previous president Talamara but was interrupted by the Khan'in invasion.

Deciding which direction to head in first, they begin to look through the restricted files. What they discover alarms them. A sense of urgency fills the briefing room, but an alert of the arrival of a Polarian Battleship sends them racing to the bridge and entering a state of red alert!

Production Commences

What hero/heroine in any literature, book, comic, TV, cinema or Theatre is your ultimate hero/heroine?

So... What's Ocuring?

I have been working on some projects for the past week.

Pegasus Engine CORE RPG: All-In-One Books

I have almost completed the combining of the 8 books from the box set into one book.

Why?

For two reasons, firstly, Kickstarter offers a hardback version of the rules. This requires them all to be combined, re-page referenced and re-indexed. Not a job for the faint-hearted.

I have three books left to combine, once this is done, I will begin re-page referencing and indexing. Then to prototype a hardback version.

This is taking up a lot of my time currently and fitting it in between printing has not left much room to showcase this week. Fingers crossed for next week!

Miniatures

Check out the latest Miniatures!

Miniature Show Case

The latest miniature has been added to our range The Gnarg - Heavy. Brutish thugs that plague Luna City, are commonly employed by Crime Bosses as muscle. The Wardens respond to incidents involving Gnargs with deadly force. Will your Strike Force Crime Squad have a Gnarg or two?

Once Strike Force has been completed I will be working on a full set of Squad stats for Alien Scum by DSM Miniatures. Who has kindly provided permission to include his miniatures as part of our Strike Force Start Box!

As well as Strike Force Stats, I will also create a race profile for use in Starfall.

GMD proudly presents the latest in Five Dice Games Licensed Miniatures by DSM.

These will soon be available at www.fivedicegames.com & will be added to the XP Chart throughout the year for Members to obtain for FREE.

Another miniature showcase next week!

Story...

Magnus Miles, for as long as he could remember was born with the gift to generate magnetic fields. He was not alone, His one true love, Iriden Dal, was capable of manipulating rock matter and their friends too were gifted. Together they fled persecution for the love they shared, to live on Regis VI, a colony which sat on the far reaches of United Colonial Space. The small band of gifted friends decided to set up a mining business in the Regis System, far enough away from those who would see harm to them. But they were unaware that they had crossed into the far reaches of the Khan’in Empire's claimed territories.
Magnus was an intergalactic network tech specialist and was setting up an intergalactic relay signal for their newly developed colony when disaster struck.
A Khan’in Battle Cruiser entered the system.
Without warning the Khan’in Battle Cruiser opened fire and glassed the colony from space. Magnus was working on the relay at the time and he watched helplessly as his lover and friends were obliterated.
The Khan’in Battle Cruiser then detected the relay and moved to investigate. What they found was a rage-induced Magnetism. With his full might fueled with hatred and anger, he tore the Battle Cruiser apart until none remained. An act he did not consider would start a war between the Khan’in and the United Colonies.
Returning to the surface of Regis, Magnus found and buried the dead bodies of his lover and friends. Then sent a distress signal…
The StarGuard responded and found Magnus alone on the planet. Realising his potential, the StarGuard trained Magnus and he soon rose in the ranks to Captain. But his hatred for Khan’in and for what they took from him runs deep…

  • Generates Powerful Magnetic Fields

The Story So Far...

The Intrepid en route to the Signus system within Polarian Alliance Sector PA-02-04.

The crew went about their daily lives and managed to have some time off for R&R and extensive training.

After a week's travel in jump space, the ships arrived at Signus. Sensors eventually showed a courier class vessel leaving the system towards Phascian space. The Intrepid then made its way towards the Signal Station a small 8-man station broadcasting to three sectors.

The Captain called for anyone with information about the system. Bruuke recalled her experience when she part of a Felorian Strike Team that hunted a pirate group to one of the Moons at Signus.

on the way to Signus, the Intrepid received a broadcast from the station stating that Polaris Prime had fallen and was now occupied by Khan'in forces. Furthermore, the Enforcer the StarGuard Command vessel has been destroyed and it is believed that the President is aboard.

Refusing to believe the information received, the Intrepid finally arrived at Signus. They soon communicated with the officer in charge a Female Polarian, who looked visibly shaken by the news she had just broadcasted. After investigating the source of the material broadcasted, the crew began to believe the information to be true. Furthermore, a Code Black message for the Captain was waiting for him.

He allowed his bridge crew to be present as he watched...

It was from President Talimara who said that if he received this message she had died and he was her only hope. Instructed to locate a vault and 12 keys to unlock it. That he was racing against time and would be pursued by her enemies. It was important to complete this mission and then save as many as he could and leave the system for safety.

The crew sat in stunned silence... Waiting to attempt to decrypt the file. They only had one shot.

Story...

Thunda is the Azkalonian Goddess of Storms and comes from the world of LoR. She has a twin brother called Brontes. When defending Azkalon from the invading Zōdiakōs her brother was struck down and he fell dazed to the floor at the mercy of his enemies. Swooping down out of the sky, Thunda landed beside him and snatched up his Lightning Spear Stereopes, which gave him the power over lightning.
Using it she pushed back the invaders, but just as she was standing on the bridge of Azkalon which spanned across the multiverse she was struck by an energy blast.
The blast knocked Thunda from the bridge. She was powerless, stunned by the blast and unable to recover in time before she struck the barrier that protected the realm of the gods from reality.
Passing through the barrier into the multiverse of mortals she spiralled through time and space until she passed into the galaxy of the StarGuard.
It was Commodore Quantum who found her. Taking her on board, Quantum promised to help her find a way home and in return, she joined forces with the StarGuard to protect the galaxy from oppression and evil.
That was 10 years ago… A mere blink of an eye to the Azkalonian, but no path has been found for her way home.

Powers...

  • Weather Control
  • Flight
  • Lightning Bolt (Stereopes)
  • unaffected by environments

Weakness

  • Azkalonian Steel

The Story So Far...

The Intrepid arrived in the Delor system within Polarian Alliance Sector PA-01-03.

Immediately sensors started to detect ships in the vicinity. Captain Fang called for Red Alert and guns armed.

A Difficult conversation followed when they realised they were faced with a Polarian Alliance Defence Force under the command of a Polarian called Fleet Commander Kaine. Who demanded an explanation as to why the Intrepid arrived in the system in an aggressive manner.

After sending details of the Khan'in invasion of Polaris Prime they found themselves waiting. Captain Fang, informed the crew to be ready to leave the system. The Intrepid Polarian Navigator Orn Cadot notified the Captain it would be an hour before the Starfall Drives were primed for another jump.

After some time, Fleet Commander Kaine commanded Captain Fang and his first officer to attend a fleet meeting and take a position within the fleet.

The meeting had a tense atmosphere all eyes on the captain and acting first officer Covis. Kaine informed him he would be accompanying the FLeet to return to Polaris Prime and help defend the system.

Captain Fang argued against this course of action, along with Loev Covis. It seemed Fleet Commander Kaine was having none of it. Captain Eldari explained he was under direct orders from the President to continue with his given mission and it was of the utmost importance. But

Fang found that he had support from several ship captains including:

  • Captain Nalavena of the Polarian Light Cruiser the PASN Siren,
  • Captain Harris of the Colonial Light Cruiser PASN Braveheart,
  • Lt Commander Farrel of the Colonial Frigate PASN Midwater,
  • and Lt Joleti of the Yuu-Ma Courier PASN Wirecore.

Eventually, Kaine backed down and agreed, that a scout force led by himself would head back towards Polaris Prime to discover its current situation and to seek survivors to rendezvous at Delor. He assigned several ships to defend Delor and a couple to escort the eInterpid to Colonial space.

Without further delay, the Intrepid primed her drives and prepared to jump out of the system...

The Story So Far...

For several months the characters have foun dtheir way in life in the super city of Cape Town in South Africa.

Mac Makenzie, now working as a labourer on a building site, has made friends with Levi Giovani. Mac saves his friend when a chain broke dropping a concrete block down towards him. Jumping in the way Mac catches the block and drops it aside. Levi is grateful and the next day invites him to his uncles restraunt on the sea front. At the restraunt, Levi's uncle Lorenzo Giovani, thanks Mekenzie, stating he owes him a debt for his heroic actions.

Blizzard has joined the fire fighters of Cape Town and finds herself racing towadrs a burning Mixima Financial building with the fire fighting team. Once the blaze is under control, she does a little investigation, and notices foot prints in the ash...

Indira managed to find work as a lumberjack and has been helping clear an area for a new GAU building. While at work, her friend Imanathi screams and when Indira arrives she finds a pit of skeletons of young women and girls who have been brutely and savagely murdered and buried there. Officer Thunderbolt attends the scene and flirts with Indira and offers her a drink Wednesday evening. She accepts leaving the young officer smiling, she finishes her shift, she is disturbed by the sighting and a cold feeling she felt at the shallow grave.

Phantom Fist has been running a dojo to keep local youngetsers out of trouble. But his dojo has come under attack from local yobs and Phantom finds himself cleaning 'Norm Lover' graffiti from his dojo. One of his Norm regulars Mark Methembu helps, and Phantom notices his eye all swollen from an assault last night, Mark tells him it's nothing and he will get even.

Laser Lady meanwhile has found a job working at Ol' Mallies Cafe down on the seafront. During the day a gang of 7 bikers arrive demanding protection money. Laser Lady, learns they are part of the Black Skulls gang, a thug group for the Copolla everyone knows it and they are terrified, hurt Marlo and you will deal with Copolla, especially Trauma! Marlo leader of the gang, makes Laser Lady feel sick when he is near. She decides to let Ol Mallie pay the protection money and makes a mental note to do something about it at a later date. She also notices one of her regulars a french girl, Toni Frise, glaring at the gang, but not do anything. That night Laser Lady does a little vigilante work, and hunts down members of the gang, but when she locates one of the gang, she finds him, beaten and laying in an alley, and a starnge figure acrobating (holding two billy clubs in her hands) over the roof tops away from the scene of crime. Lsser Lady calls it a night once she fails to locate more ofthe gang.

Sirona has become a lifeguard and is sitting on Muizenberg Beach, False Bay on the Indian Ocean. where Beautifully brightly coloured painted huts line the beach, and hundreds have ascended to the beach to enjoy the hot day. Suddenly people and children ran screaming… When a woman is attacked by a great white.. by the time Sirona arrives to help the woman she had been dragged under. Diving in after her Sirona witnessed something that was not a Great white at all, but looks to be a shark person, she gave chase... but it let the woman go and disappeared into the seas mirk… The crowd cheer her as she returned with the woman and the emergency services arrived to assist.

One night they all gathered for their evening meal at their good friend Germina Khumalos house. Where they discussed their week. The news was going wild with reports about a theft from the Metropolitan Bank of ANtiquities in the City Bowl. Aparently an artefact called the Tablet of Hathor was stolen. Germina notes in the local paper that the Banks Director, Rachelle Derand has an advert looking for private investoigators to assist her to recover an important item. The party decide to investigate further and makes arrangements to meet with Derand.

Meeting with Derand she discusses the situation, the artefact was taken from the glass display here in a private meeting room, where she holds the meeting. The case is smashed to pieces and only the Tablet is gone, other valuable items were untocuhed and left behind. During the robbery, security cameras recorded an unnatural darkness in the meeting room; this darkness totally concealed the thief.

Al lthat was left at the site was a stange fedora style hat, with a card in its band, saying "Traumas coming to everyone!"

Everyone did not know what that meant.

Prying for more information they learned that The tablet is called the Tablet of Hathor. It is an ancient Egyptian tablet covered in hieroglyphs that experts say speak of a priest who endured the Curse of Hom-Dai for attempting to conjure evil beasts entrapped by the gods.

Mrs Derand explained that she believes the tablet has been deciphered, and the increased violent reports by strange monsterous or frightingin beings is linked to it and that more incidents of murder are imminent. She told the police of her fears, but they laughed at her. She begs the heroes to recover the tablet, "for the sake of Capetown!" They agreee to help.

During the meeting a waitress bring sthem refreshments, but on sighting of the case becomes anxious to leave. Once the meeting is finished the party leave and finds the waitress Dana Jacobs, waiting for them by the park outside...

The Story So Far...

After being rescued by the Intrepid, Acting Commander Covis took control of the ship and began a rescue operation in the local area. Once he located that the Captain's party team and the Doctors Camping Trip were on Leviathon, the Intrepid made its way to orbit the moon. Sensors informed him the planet was unstable and was about to start volcanic eruption in the vicinity of both teams.

Leading a rescue party, he decided to rescue the camping trip first. He may need the Doctors' expertise!

The rescue team arrived at the Camping Trips location and extracted the Doctor and the injured cadets. Locating the Captain he rushed out and extracted the Captain and the away team who were hiding from predators within the wreckage of the crashed pleasure cruiser.

Once extracted the Captain a scanner sweep of the area to look for survivors. They located a power source deep within the nearby jungle.

Before long they landed, and the Captain led the away team to investigate the power source. The power source came from a protective shield covering a large area also hiding what was hidden within. While examining the shield, they were approached by the owner from the other side of the shield. He introduced himself as R'yk A'yn and invited them in as it was dangerous in the jungle.

The Captain ordered a security detail to protect the shuttle. before following the rest in after their guest. When inside they could see a building and gardens all well-kept. While enjoying a nice meal and drink to quench their thirst, they learned that R'yk was in hiding on the planet after the great purge. When the Spectres betrayed the Weavers and turned everyone against them, exiling them from Alliance society.

Love Covis became animated at this time, stating they should arrest the exile to pay for the millions that died because of the Weavers who are blamed for letting the Mecha sweep across the galaxy. Loeve was not swayed by the explanations from R'yk stating it was all lies, spread by the spectres. Still, Covis would not accept the tale, saying he has heard of no such people!

The atmosphere became tense, The Captain ordered Jag to escort Covis to watch over the shuttle.

When volcanic activity began, R'yk accepted Captain Edari's offer to join The Intrepid as a guest so they could relocate him to a new home. Much to the dissatisfaction of Covis.

Racing to the shuttle avoiding molten rock crashing down on them, they made it just in time. Popkiss manoeuvring the shuttle with expert piloting to avoid the explosions of volcanic activity. Once onboard R'yk was shown to his guest quarters and the Intrepid spent several days helping the local Aurian Authorities with rescue operations and repairs. They also retrieved Peridots Shuttle from the surface, which had minor damage.

Eventually, they collected the new Aurian Crew members to join their crew and started their journey to Polarian Prime after receiving new orders for the Captain to meet with the President on a matter of urgency.

The journey to Polaris Prime was a long Starfall jump. But the crew busied themselves with training and daily duties.

Arriving in Polaris Prime capital system of the Polarian Alliance. They joined the week-long queue of ships making their way through designated space lanes. Thousands of ships were present. Civilian craft patrolled by both local authority and military vessels. The closer they came to the Home World the busier the space lanes became, vessels coming and going. The crew was awed at the size of one of the Polarian Oblivian Class Military ships several kilometres long, sitting like a sentinel watching over the system.

Once they arrived in orbit of the Polaris Prime World, a water world with a giant station enwrapped in the orbit of the world. Large sections are connected by clear tubes. The Captain gathered a team consisting of Kreen, Peridot, Popkiss and Bruuk. They soon docked at a designated docking bay near the Alliance Delegation Council Halls. Passing through strict security, they were transported and then escorted to the Presidential Hall. Where they waited to be seen.

It was not long before the Captain and his team were escorted into President Talimara's office. After pleasantries, she explained that the StarGuard had reported some disturbing news about Khan'in ships seen in the Turin Nebulae only moments before the crews' arrival. She was also most disturbed by the news of the Mecha found in the pocket dimension. She pointed out that such information should have been discovered by Polarian intelligence and she fears that something sinister is happening. She implored the Captain to collect his crew and that it was important to ensure all leading members of the Alliance were represented on The Intrepid, and he should leave Alliance Space as soon as possible. The Alliance need sallies now more than ever.

Suddenly 3 Polarian Security Officers walked in and then started shooting the President. But Captain Eldari was faster! His Breegan danger Sense kicking in he jumped across the table and pushed the President aside, who only got grazed by the gunfire. Kreen erected a force field of spores about him and the President. While Bruuk and Popkiss started to draw their weapons, the Polarians made a run for it!

The Captain ordered Dr Peridot and Kreen to protect the President, while he led a chase through the Government buildings with Bruuk and Popkiss. Exchanging blaster fire as they gave chase, they managed to kill one, who transformed into a Khan'in shock trooper (Dog-Like)! The Captain warned the defence team as they continued their pursuit!

They raced out of the buildings and into the street below. Across the street into the main promenade opposite the Military of Defence building. Eventually, they managed to shoot the remaining assassins, who also transformed back into Khan'in. Just as the Captain was about to report in, there was a low thud, followed by a large explosion as the Military of Defence building that hosed the system Jump Inhibitor exploded, sending debris and fire through the station! Knocking Fang, Bruuk and Popkiss over! Then it imploded starting to suck in everything around it like a mini black hole, hungry for the nearby matter! 'Run!' the Captain cried, and the three of them found themselves running for their lives.

Meanwhile in Space... Onboard The Intrepid

Acting Commander Covis was talking in the majestic site of his homeworld, a world he had not seen since joining the academy on Theopolis the home of the religious order of the Galactic Light. When suddenly reports came in of an explosion from the government buildings. While he was in the middle of a command to contact the Captain, Sensors started to report hundreds of ships jumping into the system within dangerous proximity of the Homeworld. A Khan'in Armada has arrived along with three Oblivian class vessels and hundreds of escorts! Red Alerts blurted throughout the ship as the Intrepid started to head towards a civilian space lane to protect the craft being targeted. The Intrepid shields flared under random fire from the attack craft. Polarian Militrya caught flat-footed tried to retaliate, with little effect, each ship exploding, and the space in orbit became a treacherous minefield of starship debris.

Captain Fang and the away team raced back towards the President's suit and manage to avoid being sucked into the Singularity Bomb. Suddenly they became aware of the Khan'in fleet who began to bombard the station, explosions setting off all about them, buildings falling. Khan'in troops began to transport down on top of the station in numbers!

The Captain ordered Peridot and Kroom to escort the President back to The Intrepid as fast as possible, but a member of the StarGuard burst in and swept the President away in a blur. Both teams ran as fast as they could back to the shuttle, avoiding Shock Troopers and debris.

The Captain ordered The Intrepid to rendezvous with them, as they had a Presidential mission to embark upon as soon as possible. Covis was reluctant to leave the Polarian fleet, he had to do more! But the Captain barked the orders to him! So he complied.

Making it to the shuttle and out into space, they soon docked on the battle-worn Intrepid with Khan-in ships hot on their heels. They made an emergency jump out of the system...

Arriving at a jump point just outside, they began to recharge their Stardrives. Sensors showed two other craft in the system, a merchant ship whose Starfall drive was in danger of overloading and requested immediate assistance. There was also a luxury cruiser, which proved to be a bit of a diplomatic problem for the Captain to deal with.

Peridot led a team to assist the Merchant Vessel. On arrival they learned that the engineer had taken serious injuries, Peridot with the aide of Bruuk helped stabilise the engineer while Popkiss and Toka fixed the Stardrives. That's when a Polarian Battleship and three civilian craft entered the system followed by a Khan'in attack force. A battle ensued, but the Battleship was hugely outgunned and the Attack force had a carrier with them which launched fighters. The fighters immediately descended upon the civilian craft destroying them with ease.

The Captin ordered the Luxury Cruiser and the Merchant Vessel to Jump and sent a set of coordinates while waiting for their shuttle to return from the Merchant's vessel. Fighters started to close on them all as the Battleship finally exploded. With only minutes to spare, the shuttle returned and the Captain gave the order to jump! They were clear...

While in Starfall the captain spoke to both leaders of the accompanying vessels and explained that The Intrepid was making a detour and would rendezvous with them at the destination in Colonial Space.

En route to their new destination, they gathered for a meal in the ship's cantina. Here they exchanged tales of dark rumours they had heard through their culture about a dark entity, each culture used a different explanation and name but it all seemed to point to one thing, the Galaxies conquest. This certainly left a sombre mood about the crew, as each struggled to come to terms with what they had just endured.

Why not become a member today and start earning XP and supporting the creation of the Pegasus Engine and it's CORE Worlds? I cannot do it alone, together we will build better worlds!

Autumn Pack is at the Press!

Firstly I apologize for the lack of images, I am at a local service for the day and do not have access to our file database!

Pegasus Engine Book Editing Progress

I have received all the edits now for all the books of the box set. Exciting eh?!

I have edited Book 1 with all the changes, this is the largest of all the books and equates to over a third of the box set! Also, there is more see Book 1 below!

The project is much bigger than I originally planned, you are all getting more for your money than you signed up for! The Printed Box Set has been calculated to be retailed at £34.99! (Members say it is far too cheap for what it is, but I just want people to play the game...)

Book 1 - Progress Update

This has to be the most exciting part of the update so far! Here is where I am with this part of the project:

  • I am halfway through the book's final graphic design update, I will complete it this weekend.
  • All editing notes have been updated and completed.
  • The book has all the artwork added. Looks awesome!
  • All page referencing throughout the book has been completed.
  • An index has been added.
  • The character Sheet is completed, see below.
  • All that is left is the Contents page, Kickstarter recognition page, and back cover. Then this book is ready for a proof print! I aim to organize this Monday/Tuesday.

AAE Guide Progress Update

The AAE Guide Prototype is now ready to be sent out in the Autumn Pack! I will be printing the Prototype on Monday and it will be sent to Members next week.

By the time I have completed the other books in the box set, I will then be ready to complete the AAE Guide!

Check out the Prototype test print:

Accessories Progress

Character Sheet

I have finally completed the Character Sheet! The character sheet is spread over various pages throughout the books. All VIP Members will get a copy for FREE! in their Winter Pack.

I will also provide a FREE digital version too.

Here is a look at it: (apologies, made in Canva while I'm out at the services...)

GM Screen

I will work on this once I have completed all the books and then decide what charts to include on the screen. I will use the CORE RPG's Screen as a template for which rules to include.

Encounter Cards

I have been talking to the VIP Members about these and have decided that I will be creating a set of Index Card Sized Encounters cards. I can get more information on them and the reverse will be lined to allow for your own personalization or it will have an encounter sheet to keep track of effects during gameplay etc.

These are practically done, they will be lifted directly from the Encounters Guide so you will be familiar with the format.

A much-needed game aid for Games Masters! I can't wait to have them for myself. It will save space in my ever-shrinking GM section of the games table.

This will be included for FREE to all VIP Members both Printed and Digital versions.

Pre-Generated Characters

These will not take long to complete and I am looking forward to providing some characters from our settings for you to use in your games as Test characters or NPCs as you see fit.

They will be supplied on a stylized character sheet rather than the standard game sheet provided in the book. Each character will have unique artwork too.

Digital Adventures

These will follow throughout next year. Since these are digital I am in no rush to complete them. I am instead prioritizing the completion of products that require printing.

But they will follow once done as I need them for up-and-coming shows to support the release of the Pegasus Engine to the public in June 2024.

If you want to have access to all our future printed and digital products prototypes and final products, such as Adventures, Campaign Settings, Guide Books, Accessories, Card Games, Miniatures, Board Games, and War Games. Why not consider joining the VIP family?

VIP Members gain all the above for FREE postage FREE, by spending XP, that you earn monthly based on your membership.

XP can also be earned in monthly member-only competitions!

Each season you spend XP to put together your personal Members Build-A-Box which is then sent to you for FREE postage FREE anywhere in the world.

What's included in the XP? Changes each month, with special offers and limited gift offers including our products and miniatures, other company games, vouchers, etc that we purchase to give away to our members.

The group have decided to look for gear to kit themselves out before overthrowing the slavers of Delos. Their plan has taken them south in Peridor to the Docks of Nestor. Hearing rumours, from a man who was washed up on shore, of the Red Army amassing by the fire mountain out on the Fire Island. He begged them to rescue his sister Aria. Accepting his quest, they hired a boat and sailed to the island.

Battling a host of Goblins and Orcs they have ventured deep into the dungeons of Fire Mountain. They have managed to rescue Aria and meet Sarizor who seeks to kill the leader of the Red Army. Joining forces they ventured through the dungeons.

After marvelling at the minerals glowing in the black rock formations, and avoiding some suspicious rooms believed to be traps, our heroes, came across an underground river. A raft lay nearby as did a rickety bridge. Splitting up (As that is always a great idea!) Popi and Squizz took the bridge while, Aria, Peanut and Razzze took the raft. Ortox decided to fly across.

Halfway across the raft became animated and Aria, Peanut and Razzze all fell into the river! But it wasn't long until Popi and Squizz joined them as the bridge collapsed.

They saw a large crocodile racing across the river towards them!

Peanut and Razzze made it to shore, but Aria struggled with the crocodile gaining on her!

Popi managed to climb back onto the bridge and scurry back to shore while Ortox, rescued Squizz flying her to safety.

With a precision toss of her dagger, Popi landed an Olympian throw! straight through the Crocodile's eye, it thrashed and disappeared beneath the surface not to be seen again!

Dripping wet, they decided to come up with another plan to get across...
