Already at work: Next Month's Project

Kicking it old school.
Already at work: Next Month's Project

          For those of you who don't know already, The Black Desert: Species Went on sale on Friday.  Response has been great so far, which makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.

           Usually, I take some time off between projects, but the thing about me is, I really like drawing spaceships.  Surprising, I know ;)

           Anyway, as you can see abpve, I've already got a good idea about what next month's Ships of the Black Desert installment will be.  In fact, the graphics are all already done!  I'm hoping to get the text done this week, so that I won't have to worry about it as mid-January rolls around.

          Why the rush?  February's project will most likely need the extra time.  Our second core-rule supplement will be The Black Desert: Spacecraft, which will not only include a fully updated spacecraft datalog, it will also have Classic D6 and D20 stats on every rocket we've released!

          After that, March will see the fulfillment of a promise I made long ago:  Our first IPV spacecraft!  The Escort craft we've been discussing is small enough that I can get it finished and out in a month's time, so we're going with it first.  This supplement will have self-contained rules on movement and combat with magnetic sails, so the spacecraft will be available ready-to-run.  In addition, there will be included (either in the PDF or on the blog as a bonus)  a gazetteer showing the travel times between all of the main points in the Black Desert, given at Opposition and Conjunction as well the average distance.

          The next three months will be interesting, to say the least.  Hope you enjoy!


  1. The next three months will indeed be interesting. I, for one, intend to have chapter 5 done by then (and then you get to see your Kestrel pics).

  2. YAY, Kestrel!

    I forgot to mention, updated BD6 stats on all craft will also be included in The Black Desert: Spacecraft.

  3. Don't forget to add the airlock for the Conestoga...
