Just priming the pump here in case anyone has an idea they'd like to submit to the zine

Issue 23
seems to be shaping up for a Clarion station theme or a derelict ship theme
at least thats what it looks like based off of whats in the submission cue. Anyone have something on Clarion station they'd like to put togehter as a quick article in the next couple of weeks.

There was some interesting discussion on mechanics of the station's spin and justifying the KHs map of Clarion station against the details in the various canon sources. that could be an article

Any other ideas?

Quick station layover encounter?



Issue 24 seems to be shaping up to a Pirate theme with 2 articles in the WIP stage and Shadow Shack's Dark Shadow's Revenge WoWL 2.0 adventure.

So be thinking about pirates in the coming months.

I have a Sathar weapons article in the works. I posted a version of it here before but searching through the forums takes a very long time. I've updated it since then and need to create some illustrations. I also need to write up an adventure but that might take a while and need to be split across a few issues.

I also have a long article on the Void Drive, plus I need to write up some rules/specifications/costs for artificial gravity systems.

What's the word count limit on any given article? I ask as, if it comes with illustrations, it'd be a fair few pages long.

Yes, I think I had found that information before I officially joined this site. It was fantastic! You should turn it into an actual story, maybe with some separate statistics for Sathar weapons.

There isn't a word limit.  I'll make it all fit and I don't mind long articles.  Each issue can have up to 45 pages of content and I've put 17 page articles in before.  Write it up and submit it and I'll work on the editing and layout.

Have another project I have been working on. Doesn't fit either theme but will but up some of it in another thread and then let group decide its fate.
Sounds like a great job but where did you say we had to go?

I wasn't sure about the stats, as IIRC Sathar weapons aren't any different to the 'standard' Frontier versions. I will double-check. I was thinking of making them lighter. Anyway, time to do a bit of digging.

That might be an idea. Its illegal to posess sathar tech as per Star Law so why bother with sathar tech- what will tempt someone to break the law? Well for one thing its lighter. works comperable but is lighter.

Please don't worry about a "theme" when making submissions.  At best, if there even is a theme for an issue, only about half the articles are related to it.  If you have material, just submit it.  I'll figure out where best to place it.

I only mention themes as its nice to have one and to encpurage submissions in those area. But the reality is if we have 3 articles close in topic we call it a theme. Theres usually 10+ articles.

Did someone say "pirates"?

How about the Dark Tramp pirate frigate and her crew?


No, I'm not overly fond of Zeb's Guide. Nor do I have any qualms in stating why. Tongue out
