Greetings, friends. One of my online friends and fellow publishers Jonathan M. Thompson​, owner of Battlefield Press) lost his girlfriend Tammy a few days ago to an unexpected heart attack. Not only is this a devastating blow, but it is also an extremely expensive one.

 The RPG publishing community at large has rallied together to help out a friend, and contributed $400.00 worth of gaming material to a special charity bundle for $30.00.

 There is something here for just about everyone - Traveller, Call of Cthulhu, Savage Worlds, Pathfinder, and a ton more. All of the royalties from this bundle will go to Jonathon to help offset her final expenses and help a fellow gamer in his hour of need. Fifty quality products for less than the cost of a dinner out, and you get to do something good for someone who really needs it.

 Thanks to all of you for supporting our hobby, our industry, and our friends.

If you're not a gamer, or would prefer to contribute directly, you can do so through the GoFundMe page for Tammy.

 I'd like to offer the contributing publishers a special hat tip as well; this bundle will give a chance to get acquainted with some of us you haven't tried yet.

 Stygian Fox Publishing, Savage Mojo, Rite Publishing, Rogue Genius Games, Miskatonic River Press, DSL Ironworks, Arc Dream Publishing, Obatron Productions and Evil Beagle Games!

 Thanks especially to all of you; none of this would be possible without your support.

Testing an embedded 3d model viewer.

A quickie test of an embedded 3d model viewer, with an eye toward potentially creating an online database for ships from the Bastards of Foreven.  Still very much a work in progress, but it could be potentially used to make an online database of all of the ships that I've completed.

Up next!

After finishing the Dragonfly* 10 ton fighter, I decided I should finish off some of the stuff I've had hanging around for a while before starting a big new project (the next Technical Manual). I was digging through my files for almost ready items, and the 1000 ton Starstrider class jump carrier is one of those. I finished the model a looong time ago, but never finished it in time for inclusion in the Foreven ship books. I decided it was time to finish this bad boy off. So, I'm finishing the B&W rendering stuff today, and working on the write up and formatting. I had hoped to have this finished in November, but new arrivals in the family and the holidays kind of tweaked that idea. This should be out soon, and then we're going to take a look at another unfinished big boy, the 1000 ton Tentedal-class Patrol Carrier (an older Zho model used by the Avalar Consulate). That may take a bit longer, as it still needs deckplans (although the model is 90% finished) and the BW texture treatment. There may also be a couple more Zho fighter and utility craft variants to go along with it.

*The Dragonfly-class Fighter is available right now on  my Patreon page for patrons.  It will also be released in the next Foreven ship book, along with the Starstrider.
