BRP Central folks: If you are interested in contributing to the Jonstown Compendium, and would like your creation to feature on launch or soon after, contact me at mob@chaosium.com and I can forward you the User Guidelines and templates etc so you can get started. nb we're not posting this material publicly yet in case we or DTRPG/OneBookShelf need to make any alterations.

I'm trying to verify that is also the point of contact for contributions, not just for guidelines and templates.

For anything related to Jonstown Compendium, contact MOB as noted above - the guidelines walk you through everything you need to do. You will be responsible for putting the material together and contributing directly to DTRPG. 

If you're asking about more formal projects, then that would be Jason.

Yep. I already have all that. I'm trying to verify that is also the point of contact for contributions, not just for guidelines and templates.

Once the Jonstown Compendium is live on DriveThruRPG you'll be able to submit directly there. What I am currently soliciting is content to have on the site when it goes live. Rather than just an empty black maw of chaos. If you have something ready now, please email me with it and we'll get it uploaded before the launch.

Nice to see we're getting a public release of Martin Helsdon's army book!

Yeah, I am really proud of what Martin did, especially since from time to time I'd send him the current working manuscript of the Dragon Pass armies chapter, which would annoyingly contradict what had been sent him before.

I lost track of who's who between the real names on those books, and the forum handles, so I can't properly @ them to shower them with gratitude for their work... but I'll make sure to get those PDFs on day 1! Meanwhile, I'm looking at the pitiful half page of notes I have for a potential Compendium scenario... shame! shame!

Thank you.

I have taken certain... liberties... with the material you kindly shared, mostly small expansions based upon assumptions, and some of those 'new' 'old' regiments have illustrations. Some of those 'new' regiments appear in very old Greg documents, mostly lacking information beyond the name, all shared with you, that were unearthed in the process of collecting information over three years. The only changes that had me perplexed for a time were the 'new' 'old' Lunar Army Corps, and I hope how I have integrated and explained them is amusing.

I will be bringing some hardcopies to Dragonmeet on Saturday.

If updates are allowed to DriveThruRPG, I hope to periodically update the book with any new information. Something appeared on FB today which added a sentence to one regiment...

I will be getting the one I contributed to on day one for free, and no, I will not tell you which one, You will just have to buy them all.

Cheers

What the old geezer isn't telling us is that he actually doesn't remember which one he contributed to, which is why he can't tell us :P

Only the Bandit Ducks seem to be showing up just now.  Was there a delay with the others?

Well you know those ducks and how pushy they are...

Bill d'yever play with more anthro ducks than they are typically presented? like, taller and able to actually fight, rather than being basically, uh, actual ducks?

Well I came to RQ in the 80s after reading Gerber’s Howard the Duck so no, while my first character ever was a duck thief he spoke with a bronx accent and smoked cheroots! I was tempted to add the fedora and tie but thought that was too much. So no, a standard every day duck... err durulz!

DriveThruRPG is handling the initial release, and hopefully the other three titles will be up soon.

Is this a problem with Drivethrurpg? Are they just... not uploading them for some reason? I also was looking forward to checking these out on Friday.

Someone noted there may have been issues with Black Friday volume and possibly hacking on their website.
