Good Afternoon, All,
Finally, after all that work, starting over at times, and having to make some hard decisions, I finally reached the point where Issue #4, Spring 2006, of Stellar Reaches is now ready for download, so feel free to go check it out at your convenience.
I’d like to take a moment to thank all of you for your continued patience as I struggled through life challenges to get this issue of Stellar Reaches out for your perusal and enjoyment. While it is a lot of work, Iâ€™m happy to say that it is finally complete and ready for release. I hope that youâ€™ll enjoy it as much as I do.
Youâ€™ll probably notice that thereâ€™s a lot in this particular issue. Aside from our final article on the Astrography of the Empty Quarter sector in 993, youâ€™ll find not one, but two adventures written by fans like yourself. â€œHebrin Nightsâ€ is Part One of the Lorimar Slot, a double adventure by Mark â€œCommander Draxâ€ Bridgeman. In it, youâ€™ll find a lot of information in the adventureâ€™s appendices that help to flesh out the Empty Quarter a little more. â€œVolander Libreâ€ is a good introductory adventure written by Frank Mikes, and is designed to help bring new players into a Traveller campaign. Wrapping up info on the sector, you can catch Jeff M. Hopperâ€™s regular article, â€œThe Empty Quarter Echo,â€ this time focusing on the world of Mikik. Outside the Empty Quarter arena, youâ€™ll find a Classic Traveller article on 17 Small Craft, written by the prolific Omer “Employee #2-4601” Golan. For Traveller T20, Christian “Chaos” Schwietzke supplies us with two new prestige classes in a double dose of Prestigious Careers, the Bounty Hunter and the Starport Medic. And of course, we wrap up with an entertaining patron encounter, another contribution from our Ethical Patron contest last year.
Thank you all for your continued support and enthusiasm over the Stellar Reaches fanzine. I do this for the joy it gives me, and for the opportunity to contribute to the Traveller community. Your comments and compliments are very muchly appreciated, as always.
Prepare To Jump,
Jason â€œFlynnâ€ Kemp
