Approaching our tenth release in the Bits & Pieces article series (the infamous Gruffer, see below), we've been thinking about the future of it. Along with our Patrons, we decided to add some preview material. We're currently developing a series of Elite Paths for the game, with advanced options and new game material for higher-Order Mystics. The first of these will be dedicated to the Spellslinger Path--three career options, new powers, new spells, and rules for ritual magic.

Such a "special issue" would go way beyond the 2-4 page format for the previous articles. The pledges would still go towards illustrations--but not neccessarily for this one. The first installment is on its way, we're cleaning up the last bits and bobs in the final stages of development. You'll likely see it released in May or June.

Up next (for April 1st, no joke!) is the Gruffer, a large and rusty carrier specialized in smuggling goods and people from and to Gateway Station. The old freighter is filled with spiked spiritech and the spirits aboard roam freely. This article features the background of this ship, game stats, and an adventure hook for use in your equinox games. It will also feature a new illustration funded by our generous patrons.

Vagrant Station: A Fiasco Playset for Equinox

This Fiasco playset takes you to the far future and out into space. Whether it’s a small, cramped-up space station you create or a vibrant trade-port on an asteroid that even holds an artificial atmosphere, the stories they tell are alike. They aren’t about the exciting adventures of brave starship captains, witty space smugglers, or courageous heroes. Here, tired shift workers, bored prostitutes, and overly ambitious station guards stand in the spotlight. These stories are about their needs, their wants, and their poor decision making.

"If you think we’re mercenaries or heroes, you’re on the wrong boat. You telling us that pirates raided a freighter with much-needed medical supplies for Sanctoria does NOT mean we’ll hunt those suckers down. That means Sanctoria is still in need of medical supplies—and desperate. And we just happen to have an empty cargo hold. What does that tell you?" —Tay-ar Tori, an Honest Trader

Markets and Trade is a set of optional rules you can use to portray trade connections between stations and characterize the markets your characters visit--especially useful if your group includes a Merchant character!

The 21st of December has a special day for us ever since 2012, as we use it to release new games or make a major announcement for the coming year. This time, we're proud to share a teaser for Nightrising, our next "big" project for 2017.

The Nightrising Setting Guide describes a rich new world in which to play your favorite fantasy game. You and your friends take on the roles of daring Firebrands—adventurers who have felt the calling to lead a revolution against the mighty dragons who have enslaved the races of the Eleven Domains. Each band of Firebrands is united around a single idea, a living creature of passion and conviction called a Fury, through which they draw upon the magic of the world that the dragons have kept to themselves for so long.

You and your friends must lead a revolution against an almost invincible foe, and to do so, you must work together to spread the ideals of your patron Fury. Nightrising is about birthing and sustaining ideals in a hostile world, with more than enough adventure to scratch almost any kind of itch along the way.

There is no release date yet, but you can expect a number of updates and previews throughout the coming year.

"Don't get me wrong; not every single one of them is a filthy, cursing, backstabbing, deceiving, stealing, murdering, pathetic lowlife excuse of an existence... not at all. If you’re lucky you can still run into a decent pirate nowadays. The tricky part is to tell the good ones from the bad ones." —Kamulba, Chef at the Red Palace, Gateway Station

This article features a "special holiday" adventure hook, game statistics for pirate scum game master characters, and an illustration funded by our generous patrons!
