2300AD: Atlas of the French Arm

Postby MongooseMatt » Sat Sep 26, 2015 9:49 am

The long-awaited Atlas of the French Arm is now available on Drivethru;

http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/157 ... te_id=7242

The French Arm is the most heavily-settled branch of human exploration and expansion, running from Earth though the link at Wolf 359 and extending all the way up to the Wolf Cluster and Kaefer space, with the colony world of Aurore being the furthest, and most recent, permanent settlement.

The Atlas of the French Arm coves all the worlds and colonies within this immense region of space, including the history of its exploration, the wars that have erupted along its length, and the new dangers that are just beginning to be uncovered at its furthest, darkest reaches.

The perfect companion to French Arm Adventures, Atlas of the French Arm is a complete campaign setting for 2300AD that provides enough material to keep players and referees going for months.

Could it be confirmed now which 2300AD books are now in hardback, or due to be in hardback?

Could it also be suggested that the Tools of Frontier Living supplement - which is excellent in many respects - could get a facelift in some of its artwork and also get a reprint in hardback?

If you put the corebook, along with the French Arm series, and the Frontier Living book together you have a superb line.
Outtasight!

Aurore, I remember the original world setting supplement. I photocopied the world map and made a giant paper D20 style icosahedral map out of it. My plan was if a ship ever crashed on the planet you could roll it to determine where they landed, or roll it to determine where the Kafers would attack next.

The Core Rulebook, and the three French Arms books (Atlas, Adventures and Ships).

Hope that helps!

I gave up on supporting a real shop and got if from Amazon. Arrived today. Haven't had a chance to look at it properly yet.

Good news! My copy of AotFA arrived this week so I've bought it at my FLGS.

Observations: Hard back, matt and gloss cover, contents but no index or glossary. art is better, 240 glossy pages. This book is built to be used heavily and last a long time. And it is gorgeous.

I've had a quick look through the book and I figure it is going to give me a good foundation to build upon - hopefully I will be able to create new adventures for 2300AD.

Have already started reading the 2300AD Rule Book and this book will be next in line for studying.

I am waiting for the Traveller ruleset to come out in hardback before investing in this.. can't really play any of it without the base rules.
My only other rules are Megatraveller!

Cant wait!

At least it would give you something to read, beforehand. Do you have the 2300AD rulebook or other books as listed on http://www.mongoosepublishing.com/rpgs/2300ad.html

I'm expecting it to arrive at my FLGS in May.

True - I have the 2300AD rule book and am working through that - will the current 2300 core rule book remain unchanged after the 2ed traveller rules are released..?
And is the equipment guide worth investing in..? More pics of equipment would be cool - the core rule book is lacking in nice pics of guns etc...

Ill.
