NEW BANNER ART!

So long old banner...you didn't look like
much but you had it where it counted. 
Yesterday, we retired our old masthead (a hastily made one using MS Paint!) in favor of this incredible new art by illustrator Bill Hauser. He had the arduous task of pulling together something wild, wooly, and as kitchen-sink as the varied games we run.

What he turned in was exactly the cornucopia of space-y imagination we needed. Feast your optics on this:

I told Bill it had to have the usual astronomical suspects (haunted planets, galactic gasses streaming, spacecraft and starbases, etc.) but I wanted some beasts (kosmic kaiju!) in there as well. He outdid himself. And then he went and gave the title a super slick arcade screen effect, as if the lines in the  onscreen version of the logo had been burned in from inside a cathode ray tube display. SO. COOL.

And that endless ocean of stars. ADDED. BY. HAND. 

Expect to see this art on new flyers, posters, my car, my bedroom ceiling, the inside of my eyelids, and other swag as we welcome more players and game masters to our little corner of the multiverse. 

Way to go Bill!

Face a fleet of "undead" battlecruisers in YESTERDAY'S ARMAGEDDON!



Rev up your rocket cycle--something wicked this sector comes! Game Master  Matt Towle has planned a swashbuckling space adventure full of far-flung flavor and gonzo imagination, called: YESTERDAY'S ARMAGEDDON! Matt will run the Cypher System, a fantastic story-based set of rules by Monte Cook Games. If you're new to Cypher, this is a great chance to get your feet wet. And if you're an experienced Cypher gamer, you'll have a blast!

MISSION DETAILS:
Science Research Moonbase Lambda Seven, located on the airless moon of Harmony orbiting the spectacular gas giant Coronado 7, has been left in peace for months. Even the Junk Pirates that tried to pillage the moonbase time and again have not paid you a visit. The only time you have to dust off the SC104 Thunderbolt moonhoppers is when your cabin fever overwhelms your good sense.

But something is coming. The mistakes of your ancestors gave rise to the Vampire Fleets of legend. And legend has it that the ancient, autonomous, unstoppable battlecruisers of old were all destroyed during the war that destroyed the First Terran Empire. All the Artificial Intelligences were blown to dust, their inhuman, remorseless fury converted to base molecules in the worst conflict in human history. It is possible that the legends are wrong.

Your tranquil existence on the edge of known space is about to change forever. 

Take your protein pills and put your helmet on! 
ABOUT THIS GAME 
No experience is needed to play, but if you're an experienced Cypher, Numenera, or The Strange player you might be interested in the following:
  • A Cypher System sci-fi adventure, players will be journeyman scientists, technical support staff, or dilettante relatives of Professor Gillespie, the director of the Moonbase. 
  • Tier 1 characters. No advanced computer skills (now a lost science), no nano-tech, no psi powers.
  • Space vehicles use high-efficiency reaction thrusters (i.e., rockets) and interstellar travel takes weeks and is expensive and therefore, rare. 
  • Players can expect to engage in exciting space battles, boarding actions, and be tested by a foe unseen by human eyes for centuries.
