Great news space fans and slans. Netherwerks has joined the Humanspace Empires development team. Things are probably going to get a bit weirder around here. Has ix been assimilated into the Borg-like Nether-Regions of the ever expanding Netherwerks collective or has it just decided to embrace its inner Old School Hereticism?
I think this means exciting times are ahead for Humanspace. In the near far future, look for robot and android characters, stats and more details for the Demi-Shén of Mars, devolved man-eating Pé Choi, Mihálli teleporting on and off their vast generation ships, more space monsters and inimical alien races, cool original illustrations, rogue clone troopers. mutant Hlutrgú, secrets of the subterranean and eyeless Vrilú, super scientific traps, space treasure, mind-absorbing crystals, deadly radiation, secret psychic Astronaut cults, flying saucers, more star maps, and maybe a half dozen or more sandbox worlds.
Current projections are for the release of Humanspace Empires Book 1: Science Fantasy Adventures (final revision of the current play-test draft rules) within the next two months or so, followed by Book 2: Space Monsters and Book 3: Campaigns in Space and on Alien Planets (rules for spaceships, planetary adventures and more than a few sandbox worlds) by the end of the year.
