This was my thinking too. I like a system where char gen does most of the heavy lifting, and gameplay uses a single resolution mechanic read straight off the sheet. Swapping in NPC archetypes in to old adventures seems like it would be a doddle.   

From tinkering about a bit it does seem like perps and citizens are going to be more interesting than Judges, who naturally feel samey. But I did have fun creating a thrillseeking amateur xenobiologist who specializes in cataloguing alien/mutant organisms growing in hard-to-reach nooks and crannies high up on the sides of citiblocks. I suspect he may be seconded to Med Div shortly for a 6th Career slot.

I used Russ Morrus' PHP character generator (have all the PDFs now, but it's going to be some time before I can go through them).  My robot is about 28 years old and has gone through 5 careers - not sure that quite works for a robot, but I can see chargen will be a good session zero.

YouTube: Man from Del Monte - a series of commercials in the late 1970s(?), 1980s for fruit juice.

PDFs already sent out!  These lads aren't messing.

We did get quite a few kickstarter updates over the past 24 hours, didn't we? :-)

BTW Sheridan,  surely it's only the gorgeous Carlos-cover Deluxe Edition that's exclusivd to this Kickstarter? Presumably they'll be selling the regular edition through the usual channels.

Not sure - if not, then presumably the future releases will have the core rulebook as one of the 'stretch' goals if they aren't contained in whatever the release is.  The closest paralells I can think of are the Judge Dredd D20 and hte Slaine D20 rulebooks, which (understandably) can be played entirely independently.  Though the more recent 2000AD RPGs were the Traveller-based JD and SD books, both of which are setting books that require the Traveller core book to actually play anything.

About one hour left on the Kickstarter. No idea what happens with future releases after the core rulebook is no longer available.

Mine came through!  Had been vacilating but was inspired by how closely the minis had been inspired by Carlos' work.

Didn't realise it had changed so much.  I only have one thrill containment binder - a grey one with the the early 1990s logo.  I couldn't afford to buy more than one, so used it for my Toxic!s instead (which is where they sit to this day - wish Fear Teachers had been completed).

Oh, and the point of this reply.  It doesn't have string, it has metal rods that you thread the comics through.

Personally I think they could have excised the villain entirely.

Simply have the doc inadvertantly cause an issue with the bus driver causing him to be off work before they realise who he is and the part he has to play in the drama. Rest of the episode spent trying to put it right in time.

However, I reckon Ryan has set up a villain for the future...


Villain has device which sends foes into far future.


Villain gets sent far into the future by said device.


Of course they're going to be back!


(watch me eat my words if they aren't!)

I went on a bit of a hunt. It was recently for sale at the 2000AD stand at the NYCC, start of the month.

I’ve tweeted them to ask what the UK release date is - will see if I get a reply.

Once we have the stock in our UK warehouse we will be selling them through the webshop, just waiting on that slow boat....

Trying to work out how big that box is - looks like it should fit neatly on the shelf with various Munchkins and Chez games boxes?

I read "The Son" as a new beginning, rather than as an ending.

Anyway, if "The Son" is to be reprinted in another regular-style graphic novel likecthe rest of the Strontium Dog stories, we need more new material to fill out that volume. At the moment, the only uncollected Stront stories are The Son and the Dredd crossover "By Private Contract" from prog 2000. Unless there are already enough covers to fill half a graphic novel, we'll never see a complete run of Stront reprints. Even if The Son is reprinted in an Ultimate volume, it's not the same. I have a complete run of Stront and that's where I want to see the last Stront stories.

I count 46 covers on Barney
2000AD Stront (and Durham)
Starlord / Others

There's a few more on reprints, but I'm not sure if any of those were fresh covers. I think four of the US Reprints were new though.
One or two from the graphic novels.

Not forgetting the starscans (only seven more).

Jovis, my poor wallet  :o.

Great stuff, and loving the placeholder name "Anne Orther". I think the idea of covering the Corps and Titan (and Enceladus?  Mars?  Hestia?) in the Luna-1 supplement is a great one,  and hopefully shows the shape this range is going to take, not restricting itself to the epics themselves but expanding on their elements and settings.

Hope Mongoose and Warlord have some arrangement regarding the so-so RT kickstarted minis that seem to be still dribbling out.

I meant to ask if anybody has seen that King Carlos picture before - disclaimer said they were placeholder covers, so I'm guessing it's been used on a collection before?

As for the content - strange to call it Luna-1 when it could potentially cover any Dreddverse space strips (at least the local to Earth ones).  Hopefully they'll include the Anderson Goes to Mars story.

Woo-hoo!

So, once it reaches these shores, who wants a game at the Southern Contingent gathering (or Lawless next year)?
