Looking for a TON of digital Sci-fi maps? Meanders2 Digital Sci-fi Terrain launched just 48 hours ago and is now funded and hitting stretch goals.

This is the biggest sci-fi map project ever attempted on Kickstarter with potentially over 145 giant new and interchangeable maps for a huge range of Sci fi RPG. Inside, outside, deep space- on foot or in ship. Come check it out.

You can get Vector Packs, Commercial Licenses, and much more. You can also have your name or even company logo put into my Meanders as a bonus just by backing early. There are also
downloadable banners on the preview that you can take to share the project around on groups and sites to help spread word and unlock All of the 23 Stretch Goals left to unlock. Thanks for
reading, hope to see you there. Cheers :)

I ran a Polaris adventure using the Savage Worlds rules this past February at GenghisCon in Denver.

The heroes are the typical band of people living on the raggedy edge in a junker sub. The heroes meet representatives of the Cult of the Trident at Equinox. They are hired to covertly deliver a trio of engineers to an independent station near what used to be Lisbon, Portugal. Along they way, they have to recover vital equipment from a sunken sub while pirates attempt to waylay them.

I ran the adventure twice and had full tables both times. Everyone enjoyed the setting and the unique aspects of Polaris.

Finding a deck plan of a sub proved to be difficult. I was able to find a small boarding ship that filled in for us.

I recently discovered this great RPG (reminds me of Blue Planet). As a result, I created a group for it on Facebook. If anyone is interested, feel free to join up.


OK, it's been 7 months since the English language Polaris launch at GenCon. Everyone seems to agree that the rules and setting are compelling and the production quality is top-notch. Black Book generated a nice surge of excitement with the launch, and I was one of those that were excited.

But I'm disappointed with the lack of follow-up. Brian and John and others have done a great job with the community, but where is the publisher support? Where are some videos or transcripts of play sessions, so GMs can learn how to adjudicate the rules while keeping things flowing and fun? Where are some basic adventures to show how to create encounters and story arcs? Where are announcements of upcoming plans to develop the world?

Mid-term grades:
Launch: A (an index would have made that an A+)
Follow-up: F

I have looked and may have missed i but is there any guidelines to build your own vessels? I am a major vehicle junkie and find the rules very vague so any help or ideas would be appreciated.

Small research habitat, perhaps?

Has anyone seen a posted blog or podcast account of naval combat? I'd love to follow along to see a GM run a few rounds of action...

Came across this graphic novel; might be of thematic interest for folks here.
