Reviews have noted that my lovely wife's art work rocks the camels ass...and the other stuff should go. We both appreciate that kind compliment!
An ebook version would probably be a good thing and a smaller digest sized book would probably be a better format.
Well I suppose I am just not able to leave a good job done when doing a great job is my goal. So I am announcing a Rogue Space Black edition. This edition will be:
1) Published in digest sized format
2) Made available in ebook format
3) Illustrated solely by my wife
4) Will include optional rules for a more detailed space ship damage/repair rules adapted from Far trek (which were adapted from Where no Man has gone before 2.0)
5) Will include the adventure Obake
6) Will NOT include the sample setting nor the sample adventure in the current rules book
There are NO rules changes whatsoever in this edition. The additional and optional damage/ repair rules in this book will be given away FREE in a pocket mod format download. The adventure OBAKE will be exclusive to this edition and will not be published elsewhere.
The original edition will remain an at cost purchase. The Black and Ebook versions will be for profit. If you own the original rules there will be no need to purchase the Black edition, Again the changes will be largely cosmetic, the "new rules" will be given away free, so the only real addition is one adventure at the expense of the setting and adventure in the current manual.
We are also mulling over selling specialty dice and have t-shirts up on Zazzle featuring my wife's artwork? Those are TBD...
I appreciate greatly all those who bought the game and gave it a go, so I am not cheating the folks who bought the game already. By leaving the original manual still available and at production cost, I am staying true to my original vision and intentions. As there is additional work from my wife and I going into the Black edition, we are going to charge extra for it.
Thanks again for your support and for exploring The Dark Frontier.
