Stars of Empire will have its somewhat delayed release at Game Nite in South County Mall in St LOuis County on November 20th at 1:00 PM. I’ll be doing a signing and running a demonstration game. Chris has a excellent store with a wide range of games and a crack staff so its great to be invited down to show of Stars of Empire! My publishers, Black Pigeon Press, will be down th ere as well. I’m looking forward to meeting other Victorian Science Fiction/Steampunk gamers and fans.
Hive Queen and Country is a rapidly evolving setting. A Yahoo! group of very active and dedicated fans produce a large voulme of messages (averaging over 400 a month this year) about the historical period, technology for steampunk and many other things. Discourse is polite. It often is highly detailed.
In order to makke things easier we are going to develop a weekly summary of all the threads on the Yahoo! group and post that here and several other places. It should make watching the evolution of the universe much easier.
Stars of Empire is ready for preorder at the Black Pigeon Press webpage:
It will be 25.00 plus shipping. The game is around 300 pages and includes character generation, rules for all the usual role playing/adventure situations plus mass combat rules and detailed rules for inventions and major engineering projects. There are sections on animal life on Venus and Mars as well as a short introduction to the alien races, the la selpurdi and their ancient enemies the Oonaliss
Also let me share a pair of very interesting videos that two of the folks from the Hive Queen and Country Yahoo! group have done
I hope you enjoy them!
Thanks very much to Arun and Motley for the nice work.
