Upcoming: More Mecha, Spaceships & Bundles!

August is turning out to be Mecha and spaceship month. Currently there is one more pack of Mecha stock images in the works. Once it is finished I'll probably create a Bundle containing all three Mecha Stockart packs released over at DriveThruRPG at a slight discount as well. Expect it sometime next weekend. In the meantime you can have a look at the cover:

The next Traveller compatible spaceship will be an asteroid monitor. A system defense and traffic control asset. Not terribly mobile, but equipped with enough fire power and state of the art sensors to scare of most pirates. 3d design for this one is done, but I'm not quite happy with the deck plans yet. Stats are not entirely fixed yet either. Still confident that I'll be able to release it next week before going back to designing some pirate vessels.

Battlemaps will see a temporary move away from the recent dungeon theme as well. The next release in the line will be based on a naval theme for a change before I finish the last two dungeon rooms currently planned. Considering creating a MEGA Bundle for this product line containing the 100 first maps, possibly at half price. Another idea would be a number of themed bundles. Maybe a modern bundle, a naval bundle, a siege bundle, etc. You get the idea. Currently in favor of the second idea.

More Mecha & Spaceships

Mecha and spacships. Aside from regular battlemaps these will feature prominently during August. The battlemaps for August will mostly be dungeon themed, as were the last few releases in that line, like the free anniversary Cretan Laybrinth. Some will be about rather stereotypical square or rectangular rooms. Others will feature more exciting special rooms of various kinds. Together they should enable any game master to build exciting dungeons.

A short while ago I announced my interest in releasing a 4E Mecha product. As you might have been able to guess I decided against a 4E release in the end. Instead I decided to release a pack of stockart renders of Mecha. Plans for August 2012 include a follow up on this release with more stock renders of slightly more modern Mecha. Have a sneak peek at the cover:

Curiously enough my first Traveller compatible starship booklets did take off quite well. As a result I'll follow them up with a few more. Currently under production is a naval fuel tender. Designing this ship I came to understand why there are comparatively few capital ships for Mongoose Traveller. Designing deck plans for them, even simpliefied ones like mine, is quite a challenge. I might just go back to smaller ships for most future releases in this line. Unless there is popular demand for more capital ships. Another cover to give you a glimpse at things to come:
