26 by my count, with the majority restricted to the new specialities (of which there are 17, plus 2 'training options')

Ah, thank you, now I understand where the confusion came from. :D
I was also referencing the Vargr book so sorry for any confusion there!

Also check under the Melee (Infighting) decription as it should be listed there as well (towards end of the same chapter).

Vargr teeth do 1d6+1 damage. Not sure of the page number (I've not seen the final book) but its listed under the traits section in the Character chapter.

It does indeed start in 1105 but as has already been stated, it can easily be modified to fit anywhere between the 4th & 5th Frontier Wars

Does it come with a pronunciation guide for the planets? :shock: The majority of those look like someone used a random letter generator. Yes, there is a pronounciation guide, much like the Aslan one (but for Vargr of course) :) There are also guidelines for creating Vargr words and a glossary of co...

After a fashion - it is an OO language that has elements of basic (mainly program flow) but beyond that it is its own language really.

I'm using Blitz Max, which is primarily a games development language that I used to created a couple of games with before becoming a full-time writer. Since this app is using a graphical gui, Max seemed the obvious choice to me, having developed my own gui system for it. Plus its a great language to...

Love how everyone just glossed over my suggestion of making it a java app and therefore crossplatform right out of the box, am I set to invisible again? I missed that. There are many reasons why: 1. Development time - would take many times longer to develop it in another language. 2. The app is sta...

This could really be a cool application if I can add my own Library Data for my game and EDIT the published data if I want to change something. Will it have both of those features? (please) Yep. All the data is stored in text files so really simple to add/edit and include hyper links if required. E...

Just thought I'd stick my head in here since I am working on the software. Regarding the operating system - it will initially be Windows only but there is the *potential* to create Linux and Mac versions. I guess it will come down to whether there is enough demand for it on those systems. Edit: it w...

The players being loyal to the Imperium was not the plot-hole I was worried about. Even being loyal, when placed in the situation as outlined in page 10 of Tripwire, it would be very easy for the players to shoot the campaign in the foot there and then. I have to disagree as loyalty would mean the ...

But secondly, my GM sensibilities were slapped in the face when pretty much the second scene in the campaign (page 10) can so easily end the campaign there and then. True, the book explicitly warns about the possibilities and even quite brazenly states, almost as a quip, "which could bring a rather...

Hi Grant was not listed in any of the original (i.e. canon) reference material that I had available, which is why it may differ from other sourcebooks you have read. However, there is nothing stopping you from combining my desription with any other concepts you have used in your game. In your exampl...

Is Tripwire an actual written adventure or a book of adventure seeds? Its primarily one campaign but there are several side scenarios and random encounters that can be used as required. There is basically an adventure in every system of Jewel subsector as well details on each system/world. With a b...
