A brand new short story has just been released for Traveller Wednesdays - Widowed, another cracker of a tale by Chris A. Jackson.

You can grab your copy right here: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/28 ... te_id=7242

There is only one law on the pirate world of Theev. The Blacksand Widows enforce that law with brutal efficiency and remorselessness. Sharing one consciousness, one mind, and through their cybernetic enhancements, the Widows are all but unassailable. But where there is a computer, there is a hack. An attempt to crash the Widows’ network results in one sole unit of the collective, Q2,3nrpi2, being cut off from her sisters. Alone for the first time, she must flee and go into hiding, for her former sisters will seek to burn away the malicious code and excise the infection. To survive, Q2,3nrpi2 must disguise herself as human, and redefine herself as an individual. Q2,3nrpi2 becomes Arpi Quince, and discovers one more thing that she needs.

Widowed from her collective, torn from her sisters, Arpi needs vengeance.

I’ve read his first two short stories already. “A Warrior’s Soul” was a good premise but I didn’t like the way it was written. I very much enjoyed “Girl’s Gotta Eat”. I love the Pirates of Drinax Campaign, so I’ll definitely pick this one up as well.

Welcome back, Carrie Fisher.
So if you were refereeing a Pirates Campaign, and one of your players asked a widow if she could arrange her braids i to buns on either side of her head, how would the widow respond?

Mobi, ePub and PDF.

Though easy enough to convert between the various ebook formats.

Did the rest of these stories fall by the wayside?

No, they are still ready to go - we have had a tad of extended staff illness that has impacted a few projects, these among them. Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible!
