  1. Hardcover crowdfunding, NOW LIVE

    That's good to hear. Congratulations Paolo!
  2. Betrayal at Shadewood Keep Adventure is Available

    Very cool!
  3. Terraforming Mars in 100 years

    Haha, no I really can't do the math. Reading that article, my eyes glaze over instantly.
  4. Oh, that's nice. I've been reading quite a lot on the history of medicine lately and it's fascinating how many strange diseases there are, but also humanity's ability to make them worse with treatment. (Blood letting comes to mind, but that's actually one of the medieval practices that a doctor's used on me some years ago).
  5. Terraforming Mars in 100 years

    That's interesting. No direct terraforming and still an atmosphere would be formed 'The shield structure would consist of a large dipole—a closed electric circuit powerful enough to generate an artificial magnetic field.' I wonder what size such an apparatus would have?
  6. Deck Plans for a Small to Medium Ocean Liner

    Maybe you can put them in the downloads section?
  7. Mythras Monthly Scenario: White Death!

    I agree, this is very welcome!
  8. Deck Plans for a Small to Medium Ocean Liner

    It's quite easy to find deck plans of Titanic on Google, but that is too big a ship I assume? Most other plans I have found on the internet are quite low-res.
  9. New Version of Star Mapping App

    The Traveller-inspired star mapping tool Sector has been updated to 2.0. I've written about this iOS app before (http://www.frostbytebooks.com/blog/easy-star-mapping) and the new update makes it even better. The top new feature is a more flexible zoom tool. It now allows the user to see an entire sector at once or zoom in to just a few star systems. Using the standard pinch gestures, it’s very easy to move around a sector. Star maps generated elsewhere can now be imported, though I'm unsure what the exact file type requirements are. There’s also a new info pop-up that does a great job of explaining most symbols used in the app, though a few are still missing (like the colored hex outlines appearing in a few places). Editing is just as easy as before: hit Edit and then tap any hex to add or remove a world. Very straightforward. A generous list of information is automatically generated for every system and can be updated if necessary. If you own an iOS device and play sci-fi games, this app is close to ubiquitous. For iPads it really shines. In fact, you will never have to go through the tedious work of manual star mapping again if you get this app, all for the price of a cup of coffee. Highly recommended.

    Thanks Paolo! I will check it out.
  11. Mythras Monthly Scenario: White Death!

    Very cool!

  13. Vintage Sci-Fi Covers

    Ok, so I got a little inspired by the above and checked my own book collection for favourite covers: This is the Swedish edition of Rendezvous With Rama from 1974. Cover by Tom Hultgren. I really enjoy these typography-only covers, but I suppose they were used partially for economic reasons. Swedish is a small language/market after all and illustrations are expensive.
  14. Vintage Sci-Fi Covers

    I just found this neat crowdfunding campaign: https://unbound.com/books/wonders-and-visions Two sci-fi critics have collected book covers from the history of science fiction and are turning them into a book. 300-350 covers will be included, from all decades of sci-fi publishing.
