The Amber Zone Contest – 2015 has started. The four sponsors, Moon Toad Publishing, Spica Publishing, Gypsy Knights Games and DSL Ironworks is donating a number of fine prizes. There will also be a goodie bag for all participants.
Have you read all entries from last year yet?
When sending the results from the Random Subsector Generator to TravellerMap (to render the maps as pretty images instead of ascii or java) you can now chose Draft and FASA style for your generated map.
The Draft style is similar to the draft of the original Spinward Marches.
Today we passed 500 fans on facebook! When the Zhodani Base started on facebook, I thought that it would be great if we could reach 50 fans.
500! That is amazing!
While chatting with C. J. Cherryh and Marc Miller about the Hani from the Chanur novels and the Aslan from Traveller, Marc Miller said that he “envisioned that the Terran scout who first contacted them saw the resemblance to Narnia’s Aslan and used the name.”
When I commented about the idea from GURPS Traveller that the Aslan was discovered by Turkish explorers, Marc said “No one asked me. 🙁 “
I thought we had lost Paul Schirf’s excellent Deck Plans when his website was closed. I found out today that they are now hosted at Traveller Downport. I have added a link from my Starships page.
I like his version of the Shivva Class a lot.
I got entry 20 from Alegis Downport, 21 from Michael, 22 from Friz, and 23 from Jim. These 23 are all entries in this contest. I will start posting the entries now and try to post one each day.
