REFLUX Scenario Update

Postby Clarence Redd » Thu Mar 09, 2017 4:22 pm

Just a quick progress report on REFLUX, the upcoming scenario for M-SPACE: I got the text back from the editor a couple of days ago, and all maps and illustrations are done. Unfortunately my computer crashed the other day (luckily, no work was lost), but as soon as it's fixed I will get the layout done rather quickly.

If all goes well, it will be a late March release, or early April.

And here are a few more details : )

The book will be around 120 pages (10+ in color), roughly half of them covering the setting and some new rules, the rest being a scenario.

A snippet from the introductory chapter:
"[The book] introduces the characters to The Weaver setting, telling an epic story about a dying empire called The Constellate. Small kingdoms and federations have risen in its wake, fighting for power, while the baroque empire struggles to keep its rotten core from collapsing. In this chaotic age, hope seems to emanate from the long forgotten teachings of The Weavers – a species almost wiped out by The Constellate’s forces, centuries ago."

The scenario includes some investigations, several Extended Conflicts (both social and other types), and a bit of ground & space combat. Suggestions on how to dial up or down the difficulty of the scenario are presented, plus a list of missions to continue with after the adventure is finished.

Two intelligent alien species and worlds are detailed, a few new careers, specifics about FTL and comms are included as well as some new equipment. There is a subsector map, two world maps, and a handful of more detailed maps (among them a cantina, a small town, and starship plans).

Yes, I think so : ) Both worlds can harbour many more scenarios, and several patrons and recurring villains are introduced. And, not least, the player characters get to fly speeder bikes.
