Arcane Game Lore

It was a dark and stormy night...

Frontier Explorer issue 13 Available

By the time you’re reading this, I’m off camping in Yosemite National Park with my family.  (Edit: Actually, I’m back.  For some reason, I forgot to hit the publish button on the post after I scheduled it so it didn’t post on Tuesday.  Here it is now.)  The preparation for that, combined with the rest of my regular work and school responsibilities, has squeezed out any extra time I’ve had for writing blog posts.  However, getting ready for the camping trip has got me thinking of some new topics that I’ll probably cover once I get back.  I just don’t have time for them now and the post will be better with personal experiences (and pictures).

In the mean time (and another item that sucked up my free time from blogging), I finished this and got it up on-line:

That’s right, lucky issue 13 of the Frontier Explorer is now available either at the magazine’s website or from DriveThruRPG. This issue’s mini theme is racing and character mounts. We have a number of articles describing new creatures that can be used for races or as mounts for your characters when away from civilization as well as rule for running racing events in game or in your campaign.

Additionally we have another new race, some new ships and a compilation of all the Star Frontiers planetary and system data in to one comprehensive guide which was done by one of our Patreon supporters, Scott Holliday. We also have the usual comics and a couple of guides to existing races that flesh them out a bit more and give ideas for incorporating them into your game.

This issue’s full article list is:

  • Zebulon’s Guide to the Humma
  • Zebulon’s Guide to the Boon’Sheh
  • Off to the Races
  • Running With the Whitefooted Storch
  • New Pale Centisteed
  • Racing Mounts in the Frontier
  • Titan Rising: 2299
  • Trafalgar Trade Lines
  • Meet the Delphusians
  • Survey of the Frontier
  • Is There Anybody There?
  • Grimz Guide Comic

So grab a copy and explore a bit, maybe you’ll be inspired to fold something from the issue into your game.  I’ll be back next week with some thoughts about camping and travel.  See you then.
