Game 1: "The Pursuit of Mr. James" (from 21 Plots: Misbehave) will be on Friday at 7pm.

Game 2: "The Early Bird" (from 21 Plots: Misbehave) will be on Saturday at 1pm.

Pictured here is Sean "Shade" Marlette. He is a former professional gambler and street criminal turned high-class assassin. Most of his current work is performed for the O'Malley Crime Family on Chance (Cascadia 0405).

Marlette is a determined adversary and has a reputation for always eliminating his target. If your characters have run afoul of his employers, then you can rest assured that they are in grave danger.

Marlette is one of 21 antagonists presented in 21 Villains, our newest product, which will be available on February 13.

And here we have Klayton Holte. Holte is the Police Chief of Vasynov Orbital (Franklin 0106) and is corrupt as they come.

He is heavily involved in assisting the Water Dragon trade. Water Dragon, for those not in the know, is an illegal hallucinogenic drug taken from small plants which grow on the banks of underground rivers on Vasynov.

Holte is one of 21 antagonists presented in 21 Villains, our newest product, which will be available on February 13.

Just a quick reminder that, in two weeks, I will be a guest at MystiCon in Roanoke, Virginia! I'll be running three Traveller games set in our Clement Sector setting, participating in an "advanced gamemastering" panel and I'll be on the "celebrity panel" for their version of Match Game.

So if you're in the Roanoke area, come out and say hello! I've been doing this convention for several years now and it has never failed to be a great time.

You can find out more about MystiCon at this link.

And here we have The Sisters of Mercy. Ellatraci and Eratina Milcragh are identical twins from Minerva (Franklin 0401).

Local system navies and merchants have come to call them the 'Sisters of Mercy' after one particular incident in which they dressed as nuns from Franklin and stole an Atlas-class freighter. In that incident, all the crew and passengers were released unharmed with blessings from the twins on behalf of the (Reformed) Catholic Church of Franklin, and told to donate half of their remaining money to the orphanages or face the wrath of the Sisters of Mercy.

The Sisters are among the 21 antagonists presented in our newest product, 21 Villains. 21 Villains will be available tomorrow (Feb 13).

A few quick bits of news to share with everyone.

First, I will be appearing as a guest at MystiCon in Roanoke, Virginia this weekend. I'll be running two games from our 21 Plots:Misbehave and one game taken from 21 Plots: Samaritan. If you're in the area, stop by and join a game!

Second, our Franklin Update Project is nearing the end. Should have some solid information to share on this next week.

Lastly, keep in mind that our Birthday Sale continues until Monday morning. After that, we will be part of DTRPG/RPGNow's "GM's Day Sale", which will run during the following week.

You can find our products here. Note that neither of these sales will include print items. Only the PDF products are part of the sale.

Much as we did previously with Subsector Sourcebook 1: Cascadia, we have revisited Subsector Sourcebook 2: Franklin. Inside, we have corrected several mistakes, updated some of the artwork (particularly the world maps) and cleaned up some of the formatting issues.

If you have already purchased SS2: Franklin as a PDF, you should be able to get the newest version as a free download from your update page.

If you haven't purchased this book yet, now is the ideal time! Not only is the updated version now available but it is also going to be part of the GMs Day Sale (30% off!) which is scheduled to begin on March 3.

A print version of this update should be available shortly.

You can visit Drive-Thru RPG at this link to pick up your copy.

Much to the chagrin of her uplifted simian friend, Melissa zips away from the parked starship on her RetroWheels grav cycle. Designed and sold by the Cascadian based American Dreams Gravcycle Company, the RetroWheels wraps mid-twentieth century styling over an efficient modern grav cycle.

Available in a variety of period two tone pastel color styling choices, the RetroWheels has found a market throughout Clement Sector, but is far more popular with younger grav cycle users on Cascadia (Cascadia 0705) and Boone (Sequoyah 0305).

The RetroWheels is one of the vehicles featured in Gypsy Knights Games' upcoming 21 Vehicles which will be available on March 13!

And here we have the AMV/G Combat Car. An older infantry fighting vehicle still being produced by several companies on Cascadia (Cascadia 0705) and sold throughout Clement Sector, the Combat Car can lay down heavy fire in both a defensive and offensive role. Long superseded by more modern designs, it is still a very capable vehicle well suited for many planetary defense forces unable to afford newer designs.

The Combat Car can carry eight fully equipped Troops that deploy from a rear opening hatch. Once any troops have disembarked, the combat car is free to freely engage enemy forces or provide covering fire.

The AMV/G Combat Car is just one of the featured vehicles in Gypsy Knights Games' 21 Vehicles. 21 Vehicles will be available in PDF form on March 13.
