A Lee-class merchant vessel leaving the Joplin Downport on Bowemiwak (Sequoyah 0103) passes a local resident and her companion.

Art by Bradley Warnes from the 2nd edition of Clement Sector which is now available at Drive-thru RPG. If you have purchased the first edition of Clement Sector, the 2nd edition is available as a free update. If you have not, it is currently available for sale as a PDF with a print version to arrive soon.

Clement Sector 2nd edition (OGL) uses the 2d6 SF SRD (formerly known as Mongoose Traveller 1e). You can purchase your copy at this link: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/180536/Clement-Sector-2nd-Edition-OGL-Version

In the Clement Sector setting, April 15 is a big day. In our future history, April 15, 2331 is the date of the collapse of The Conduit (the wormhole that connected Earth Sector to Clement Sector). After that event, Clement Sector was separated from Earth and the worlds of Clement Sector were on their own.

As most of you reading this will be aware, Mongoose has created a second edition of their rules for Traveller. Like the collapse of the Conduit, this has forced a separation for the products we created under the first edition license that we had through Mongoose. Those products will be forced to no longer be part of the Traveller line and, on May 22, Gypsy Knights Games will remove those products from the market.

However, most of those former first edition products will be part of a new line of products that will take advantage of the fact that Mongoose's first edition is Open Game License. Not only will most of our existing product line become OGL but we will also continue to support that line with new products.

The first product for that line will be Clement Sector 2nd Edition (OGL). Clement Sector 2e (OGL) will be available for sale as a PDF on April 15 which is, for us, a very fitting day. A print version will follow shortly.

For those who have purchased (or were gifted) Clement Sector 1e through Drive-thru RPG, RPGNow, or any of the family of OBS websites, you should check your updates. You should have a free copy of the Clement Sector 2nd Edition (OGL) PDF for you there. Clement Sector 2nd Edition (OGL) will remain a free update for those who have purchased Clement Sector 1e until the product is pulled down on May 22. Of course, if you purchase Clement Sector 1e from DTRPG, you will also get a copy of Clement Sector 2nd Edition (OGL) along with your purchase.

Clement Sector 2nd Edition is not simply a rules update. We have added a detailed future history, a change in the rules on how the Zimm Drive works, and much more. We have also folded our Player's Guide, Career Track 1: Medic, and Career Companion into the 2nd edition of Clement Sector.

Does this mean that we are leaving Traveller? It does not. We have already prepared Clement Sector 2nd Edition (MgT 2e). Once we have permission from Mongoose to put this on the market, we will do so. It will be followed by a line of new products which will use Mongoose's second edition rules. Look for this to arrive quite soon.

So, as you can see, tomorrow will be a big day for Gypsy Knights Games. Thanks to everyone who has supported us over the years and we look forward to many more years of gaming with you.

You may find this very useful when exploring unknown space. Let me know what you think.
 
Below are beta test Clade and Group creation tables for complex (multicellular) life. Of course there are extra tidbits missing from these sample tables that I saved for the book (as well as the definitions of the results, extra sub-tables, etc.), but this is fully functional and the results paint a general picture of the flora and fauna of a world, forming the basis from which countless Genera and Species can be created.

NOTE: Before you start, choose how complex this Clade of life forms will be: low (like sponges, jellyfish, annelids, plants, fungi, etc.), medium (like insects, crustaceans, fish, amphibians, reptiles, etc.), or high (like mammals and birds). This affects results as you consult the tables.

ALSO NOTE: Advantages and Disadvantages are cumulative from Clade to Group and throughout the creation process. If you get the same result twice or a "Great Advantage/Disadvantage" result, add "Very" (or "Great" where that sounds better) to the descriptor, if three times "Extremely", four times "Super", and so on. In the examples below, the Group description includes the Clade characteristics.

FINAL NOTE: On a result of "Special", you may roll twice, roll without any modifiers, roll on a table that normally does not apply, choose any result you wish, or come up with a peculiarity (which in the INSTANT ALIENS book will have extensive tables).

Try it out and let me know what you think! Post your results in the comments.
_________________________________

CLADES are wide classes of organisms (mammals, birds, insects, conifers, mushrooms, etc.) to which Groups, Genera, and Species belong. Use these tables to determine common characteristics.

GROUPS are broad families of Genera and Species related to a Clade. Use these tables to determine common characteristics. Each of the results is further defined and expanded upon (with many more tables for even greater detail) in the book.

EXAMPLES

CLADE I: High complex dominant terrestrial consumers (bilateral hydroskeleton with many limbs; role advantage, but habitat disadvantage).

GROUP A: Armored and communal temperate terrestrial grazers (large, fast, stout-bodied but weak; great role advantage, but habitat disadvantage).
GROUP B: Smart temperate and dry terrestrial grazers (small, fast, stout-bodied; weapon and role advantages, but great habitat disadvantage).
GROUP C: Tolerant and prolific dry parasitic consumers (extremely small, slow, very stout-bodied, mighty, but hostile and sluggish; role advantage, but habitat disadvantage).

CLADE II: Low complex dominant terrestrial producers (radial endoskeleton, vegetative growth; armored with size advantage).

GROUP A: Diverse, communal, generalist, large wet terrestrial photosynths (huge, sessile, armored sac; role advantage).
GROUP B: Very armored wet terrestrial parasitic producers (large, sessile, armored star; very prolific).
GROUP C: Tolerant cool terrestrial saprophyte (medium-sized, sessile, armored thin bilateral shape; habitat advantage).

Let these workhorses work for you!

The print compilation for Ships of Clement Sector 10-12 is now available!

The workhorses get it done!

Ships of Clement Sector 10-12 compiles in print the tenth, eleventh and twelfth volumes of our popular PDF series. Included within this book are the Lee-class merchant vessel, the Fedpost mail courier, and the Broken Hill-class Prospector. We have also included the Wraith-class Intruder and the Venture-class Troop Transport, variants of the courier and the prospector respectively.

Each ship is beautifully detailed with multiple views, detailed deckplans and full statistics. Also included are several NPCs and adventure hooks to get these vessels quickly and easily into your campaign.

While each of these ships has been specifically designed to fit into the Clement Sector setting, they could easily be used in other Traveller settings or within other science fiction RPGs if needed.

Get on board! Adventure awaits!

Now available at DTRPG at the link!

Gypsy Knights Games is proud to present the twelfth entry in our line of products dedicated to the starships of Clement Sector.

In 2285 AUship held a series of meetings with several large Australian resource companies operating large holdings both in Earth system and other interstellar locations. As the meetings progressed a specialized design began to evolve that would eventually become the Broken Hill-class prospector. Construction of a prototype commenced in July 2287 and by the middle of 2288, the five hundredth anniversary year of the settlement of Australia, orders were placed by all four participant companies. This entailed an order of sixteen ships with options for additional hulls should the design prove itself in service.

The prospector allows for up to four mining cutters to dock and transfer mined ore to the two ore holds. There are two cargo locks on either side of the access and docking spine that directly deliver ore to a hold via a dump chute. The prospector can only carry two mining cutters externally but the added flexibility of allowing two more cutters to simultaneously dock to transfer ore during mining operations is a definite bonus.

Ships of Clement Sector 12: Broken Hill-class Prospector comes complete with beautiful views of the ship. The prospector is presented with full deckplans and statistics to make your use of our product simple, easy and fun. In addition, the ship comes with a set of adventure hooks to get your characters right into the action as well as a short story written by Bradley Warnes.

In addition, Ships of Clement Sector 12: Broken Hill-class Prospector also includes the Venture-class Troop Transport. A variation of the Broken Hill-class prospector, the Venture-class troop transport is marketed as an affordable transport vessel for small system defense forces and private security contractors (mercenaries). The distributed hull design and large small craft carrying capacity of the Broken Hill allows for relatively inexpensive conversion into a light military transport.

Though designed specifically with our Clement Sector setting in mind, this ship could easily be used in any Traveller setting.

Get on board! Adventure awaits!
