Since the release of the Blood in Space: Core Rule book, I find myself sitting at my computer wondering what to do now. I know that I have other projects to do but it seems strange to have something that I have been working on for over six years to be done and complete. Even now, a hardback copy of the book that I got from lulu.com sits beside me shiny and ready to play.
Well, I am not put down for long and already have a few things in production work for all of those who enjoyed the universe Blood in Space has. Here are some sneak peeks of the future.
Harvest: A Blood in Space Novella
A second novella is almost compete of its first draft which will bring readers into the world of a strangely silent colony of the Galactic Earthings Union. This survival/horror novella shows that not all the galaxy is beautiful. There are some dark monsters that should never be found.
Secrets of Arikana
Secrets of Arikana is the first complete adventure that is going to be released for the Core Rulebook. Gamemasters have all the rules but may want to play an adventure already created than trying to design one. Secrets of Arikana will come with:
- A complete adventure
- · 4 Character examples
- · Deck Plans for a GEU Pennant Class Frigate.
- · More artwork from Hannah Byrne and Kathleen Ruhl.
The best part is that Secrets of Arikana will be released FREE! Not only as a thank you for your continued support but to also make sure you all don’t feel like you got to pay for every single piece. I am not into game making for the money, I love it because I like to tell stories and provide them to you all.
There are also in the works of an expansion to the Core Rulebook that I have not finished doing the layout of. At the moment, it has the working title of Blood in Space: Tormented Space but we’ll see how it goes.
Again, thank you all for your continued support of this game and the feedback that you have been providing. I’m glad you have been enjoying the setting and hope it will continue to intrigue you and give you all a great game night!
Want to talk about BiS?
Thanks to the great people over at Grey Ghost Press, the official forums for this setting have been graciously hosted over on their system. If you have questions, comments, ideas, or concerns, why not head over there and show your love for not only BiS but for Fudge?
Time for another sneak peeks into the world of Blood in Space and what the Core Rulebook will be stuffed with. Allow me to introduce you to a large beast that can be found in many deserts to temperate worlds across the galaxy, the Havrak!
The Havrak is only one of ten general creatures that have all their stats and beautiful artwork by Hannah Bryne for the Gamemaster in designing an adventure for his players!
Stay Tuned for more sneak peeks as we get close to the release date.
In the back of my head, I always wondered if this post was ever going to be written. Now that I type these words the realization hits me. Ladies and Gentlemen, Blood in Space RPG: Core Rulebook is now finished!
After six long years of working on it in my spare time, it started out as a side project converting my fan “Alien VS Predator Fudged” game into its own universe. Since then I’ve gotten married, got out of the military, and have had two wonderful kids. My entire world has changed but this game has been a cornerstone of all my projects.
Does that mean it’s available? No, not yet at least. The book still needs editing and the last of the artwork added to the book. But we are so much closer to release that I’m pretty sure I can make it available to all of you by December of 2016!
While working on this project, The BiS universe has also seen the release of the third and final scheduled comic book built into the universe. You can follow the adventures of Jacen as he winds up in the middle of a mess on the outer rim of the known galaxy.
I hope to have more soon!
There is still a lot of work left on the Core Rulebook and also the plan to release the second Novelette that the sample chapter was included in the Enemy of my Enemy release. Stay tuned to either this blog or the facebook page for more information!
Thanks for your continued loyalty and interest in a fully dedicated science fiction setting dedicated to FUDGE!
