P-O "BeRKA" Bergstedt is the Zhodani Ambassador. :-) BeRKA started the Zhodani Base in 1994.

State of the Base

What has happened at The Base in 2017? A lot of things, but not as much as I had hoped!

Highlights

The Zhodani Base now has reached over 750 fans at facebook.

A new adventure.

Lowlights

All the things I didn’t have time to write or finish.

There was no Amber Zone Contest this year.

We only did two reviews.

Spinward Traveller is a Kickstarter that still hasn’t delivered. Ken Whitman, please finish this project!

Traveller Ascension: Imperial Warrant Boardgame is another Kickstarter that still hasn’t delivered.

Greg Lee and Donavan Lambertus and Loren Wiseman 🙁

It is interesting to see that Cepheus Engine is becoming more popular.

To-do List

We will run an Amber Zone contest this year. (Be prepared!)
Sorry for not running one in 2017. I will probably do this without sponsors.

Expect to see at least some more reviews of Science Fiction books and Traveller Products. We have a huge backlog now.

We will repost some more stuff from the defunct Traveller Freeport website.

We will post season 2 of the The adventures of Starship Notorious.
