Occupations: Bounty Hunters

Following is another article that I wrote a year ago and has been sitting dormant on my computer. I formatted it like the Pirates article.

Pirates of the Frontier - The Way of the Pirate

I've decided to start posting articles that I have backlogged on my computer, waiting to be published. No offense meant to the Star Frontiersman staff, I just have too much to be published in the SFman's publishing schedule. So here's my first independent article:

Revising Gamma Dawn and Other Stuff

I wanted to give a heads up to anyone interested that I am working on an article for the Star Frontiersman that will provide a revision to the Gamma Dawn rules, making them more uniquely Star Frontiers. It provides a new list of mutations that cuts back some of the more fantastical mutations that are too powerful for Star Frontiers play, more mutations, and two more mutation types.

I have also updated my Starflight article from issue #5 over at the Star Frontiers wiki. It now has proper table names and explanations along with modifications I made in the Stellar Errata article from issue #7.

I have a lot of stuff coming in issue #15, I believe, and I'm getting the impression that Larry wants to get it out more quickly, so it's likely that he'll include all my robot stuff all at once, and wants to include my cybernetics stuff, which surprisingly complements Bill's cyberbionics article from issue #14 quite well. He also seems to be intent on getting my Star Law revision article in there, as well. So far, that's about six articles (a total of about 30-35 pages). It will surely be my issue this month. Not that I planned it that way (I was simply very prolific over the last several months), but it's nice to be read.

I hope my articles are appreciated. I've decided to use this site address as the place to respond to my articles, so that people can contact me directly instead of my usual intermediary through Bill and Larry, as I don't give out my email.

Dumping the Revised Star Frontiers?

I have decided to stop production on the revised Star Frontiers materials to support the FrontierSpace project. I wanted to wait until it was to a stage that I could make an informed judgment before stopping work on my own revision of the rules. I think a commendable job has been done in creating a new game that is reasonably compatible with the old and should do well on the open market.

I have offered a small amount of my own game design materials to the project along with many others, (enough to be included among developer credits, but not enough to be declared a co-designer, as designer status will remain between Bill and Larry alone) as well as a proposal for a License that third party publishers can use to benefit themselves and DWD Studios (The company Bill and Larry are forming to publish FS).

I will also be contributing much of my art to the project, though sadly, someone else has received the cover. I also plan on setting books in my own settings for FrontierSpace. FrontierSpace, in some ways, is easier to design for than Star Frontiers, as FrontierSpace will be more fleshed out. I will also be proposing a module design document for the project that third party publishers should be required to rely on for continuity (focusing on design elements rather than any sort of formatting or layout).

I will, however, still be writing articles for the Star Frontiersman, and indeed have several completed articles ready to go.
