Once again, RocektFans, I am succumbing to the siren call of Trans-sophont world-building and thinking about the universe from my. Stargosy series of stories. The trigger this time was discovering my nano-fic O'Neil Cylinder had been included on the Atomic Rockets website. So I re-read it, ...

Because the best way to keep nukes out of the hands of our enemies is to...put one in a tank?
Wait, what?
Still a terrible idea. In the last installment of this series, I presented the nuclear-powered tanks of the QuestionMark III conference. Well, since then I've managed to get hold of partial scans of the QuestionMark IV conf...

Inspector Peabody J. Bignose: Hmmm (checks the computer, control core, and transponder) Yes. Yes it is. Too bad none of them paid the mortgage.

In which Rob begins to develop another excellent science fiction setting idea.
I loved Trek and Lost in Space when I was a boy. In many episodes of both shows they would encounter fantastic alien technology and figure it out before the last commercial break. I'm older and more jaded now and call bullshi...

Introduction
I am a thirty-eight year old tabtle top game designer, specializing in Hard SF design and speculation. I have in the past mainly produced spacecraft deckplans and game products for the D6 system. Recently, I have branched out into Nano-fiction, more artistic pieces, and the softer side of SF in the form of Starships & Spacemen. For the future, I'm working on a reboot of my flagship game, The Black Desert, which will incorporate my other major setting, The Conjunction War, into a unifed, expanded setting. I am also producing new products in the OSR system, which will be White Star compatible or for use with S&S. For more information, visit my blog at www.bluemaxstudios.blogspot.com
