[blog post] The Trollers Guild: I introduced the party to the Trollers Guild. A group of specialized adventurers that go “trolling”. Hunting down creatures for parts is big business in my game. Troll livers are required for making potions of healing, but each potion requires special ingredients. I am planning on making a list of special ingredients that characters can [...] http://dlvr.it/QnPmDS

[blog post] Role Playing Game Systems: So I have always liked tinkering with game mechanics. I was recently watching a live stream of Matt Coleville when he said something that stuck with me. He said D&D is a robust system for making games. I don’t particularly like the D20 system. I have said that D&D will always hold a special place [...] http://dlvr.it/Qn96Sx

With all the hullabaloo about G+ shutting down next year, I thought I'd post here to get the discussion started for our group.

The truth is, this group is not super active. It's not dead, but it's not like there are daily posts and discussions. The first question to ask is will anyone miss it an do we need to find a new home en masse? I think more likely, the discussion will be "where are you moving to and do you want a Star Frontiers community there?"

That said, the Star Frontiers community has a couple of active locations still on the web. The main ones are:

- A general forum site created by +Bill Logan and maintained by me - http://starfrontiers.us - this site is slowly getting a refresh but I only work on it sporadically.
- For those on Facebook, there is a community there - https://www.facebook.com/groups/starfrontiersrpg/?ref=bookmarks
- Our Discord server (invite link from comments): https://discord.gg/WtWZVpF

There are also a number of blogs and other sites like the fanzines out there.

A large number of general RPG community members are trying out MeWe. As such I've created a Star Frontiers group there. If you want to join the group invite link is: https://www.mewe.com/join/star_frontiers (and my personal mewe profile is: mewe.com/i/tom.stephens - I just joined today so it's pretty sparse at the moment)

Do we worry about moving? What features would we like a community locale to have? Share your thoughts in the comments.

Add my bit to the rolodex

(Most active) website: http://expandingfrontier.com
(other websites): starfrontiers.us, starfrontiers.info, frontierexplorer[dot]org (can't post an actual link to that one as Google+ just deletes my posts if I do), starfrontiersman.com, arcanegamelore.com

Am looking into others.

[blog post] 30 days of spells: Aetheric Spear: So, I decided to try and do something to force me to post to the blog every day. Something small, but distinct. I am trying to come up with some new modular magic rules and listing a bunch of spell names. As such, I decided to try and create a D&D version of the spell. [...] http://dlvr.it/Qlx2XG

Here's a set of maps of an asteroid mining station you can use in your sci-fi game. It's part of an adventure I'm writing for the FrontierSpace game but the base could be repurposed for any game. And yes, that is an alien ship embedded in the center of the asteroid. Enjoy.

I've been working some more on the FrontierSpace adventure I'm writing and have finished the maps of of the asteroid mining outpost and thought I'd share. Yes, that's an alien ship embedded in the center of the asteroid.
