Somewhere in early 2015, I reached out to Ole Peder Giæver to hear if he and Martin Bull Gudmundsen were interested in writing an adventure or two as follow-up to their surreal roleplaying game Itras By. Itras By is one of our best-selling books, so making more of that would satisfy a certain demand.
A few months later, Ole came back to me with a different vision--a sourcebook containing a variety of contributions from several authors. A wild mix of material: varied, eclectic, slightly subversive, and useful or inspiring to readers, players, and gamemasters of Itras By. How could I say no?
Now, over a year later, our company inbox is overflowing with contributions. Ole and his team of collaborators--dozens of writers and illustrators--have worked hard to create Itras By: The Menagerie. We have no idea of what the final page count will turn out to be at this point, but since the ball is now in our court, we will make sure this book gets all the love it needs and the looks it deserves.
The PDF of the Equinox Match System Guide has been updated with proper bookmarks and layers for easier printing. The PDF has also been recompiled to display on more readers and comes in a smaller file size. We squashed a number of smaller errata along the way.
In this article of our Bits & Pieces series, we provide broad guidelines for naming members of the various subspecies. It contains ideas, advice, and examples on how to name your player and gamemaster characters. It also lists the various names common to each of the Consortium Members, including the names of the stars, main planets and Ravaged Worlds.
The second entry in our Bits & Pieces series, a mysterious lore merchant Named Kamulba, has just been published on patreon.com. Based out of a restaurant at the heart of the Protectorate, he can serve in various roles in your campaigns—both as an ally and an enemy.
Again, there is no artwork in this one. But the funds start to add up, getting us closer to this goal for a future article!
