Ships of Clement Sector 16: Rucker-class Merchant is now available!

Ships of Clement Sector 16: Rucker-class Merchant is now available at DTRPG at this link!

Gypsy Knights Games is proud to present the sixteenth entry in our line of products dedicated to the starships of Clement Sector. 

Ships of Clement Sector 16 covers the Rucker-class merchant vessel which is the most commonly found ship in Clement Sector.  Building on the information found in The Clement Sector Core Setting Book, Ships of Clement Sector 16 lovingly details this mainstay of Clement Sector's shipping lanes.

Commonly called "Odd Job", the ship is renowned for its reliability and easy customization.  While the Rucker's most common role is being the favored vessel of free trading merchants, the ship has been used for everything from a cargo hauler to a music stage to a system defense vessel.  All in a day's work for the "Odd Job".

Within these pages, you will find the standard Rucker as well as these popular variants:

Passenger Variant - A Rucker modified with comfort of passengers in mind.  Replacing cargo space with luxury!

Cargo Variant - Used by merchants who would rather sacrifice passenger space for more cargo.  No pesky transiters! 

Casino Variant - An opulent modification allowing for a traveling gambling experience for high rollers!

System Defense - For the less wealthy system, the Rucker system defense variant can be the perfect answer.  Modified to be armed with a particle beam barbette, this ship can strike fear into marauders and pirates!

Missile Boat - Modified to hold a missile bay in the bow of the ship, this variant can pack a mighty punch against those who would attack shipping in your system! 

Ships of Clement Sector 16: Rucker-class Merchant comes complete with beautiful views of the ship.  The Rucker is presented with full deckplans and statistics to make your use of our product simple, easy, and fun. In addition, the ship comes with a set of adventure hooks to get your characters right into the action as well as two short stories written by Bradley Warnes.

Though designed specifically with our Clement Sector setting in mind, the Rucker will be at home in any science fiction setting.

Get on board!  Adventure awaits!

News for November 6

A few bits of news from Gypsy Knights Games on this fine Sunday morning.

1> Ships of Clement Sector 14: Boyne-class Replenishment Ship has received an excellent review from Steve Attwood over at Alegis Downport. You can read what he had to say about the ship book at this link:

2> I will be appearing at Post-Apocalypticon in Cleveland, TN on November 12. I will be running two Clement Sector games. If you'd like to know more about the convention or would like to sign up for a game, you can check out this link:

3> I will also be running two Clement Sector games and signing books for "John Watts Day" at Adventurer's Books and More in Dalton, GA on December 17. You can find out more about Adventurer's Books and More at this link:

4> Michael Johnson has just turned in the final draft of Ships of Clement Sector 16: Rucker-class merchant. This book will give quite a bit more depth and detail than the entry in the Clement Sector Core Setting Book. The book will give a lot of love to the most commonly seen ship in the Clement Sector setting. You should see this book in PDF on December 2.

5> The print version of Wendy's Guide to the Fleets of Hub Subsector is currently with the printers and waiting to be approved. Hopefully, more news on this soon.

Wendy's Guide to the Fleets of Hub Subsector is now available!

Incoming Intelligence Brief, Captain!

It is often said that war is 90% information and, in 24th century Clement Sector, it is no different.  While most governments have intelligence agencies which provide this sort of information, the general public relies on Wendy's Naval Weekly as the premier source of naval information.  Most starship captains have Wendy's Naval Weekly on their handcomps or mindcomps.

Based on Cascadia, with offices established on all the major worlds of each subsector, Wendy’s Naval Weekly has continued to publish monthly reports and annual summaries on naval development, technologies and defense news throughout the entirety of Clement Sector since the Collapse event ten years ago.

Wendy’s Guide to the Fleets of Hub Subsector is the first of a series that collates all available information to provide a comprehensive overview of Clement Sector navies and their fleets.  Each book will focus on a single subsector.  Each of these books will briefly outline a system’s navy or defense force, provide some insight to how that organization functions and provide a list of the ships or in-system vessels that are reported to be in commission.

Now that information is available to you!

This book provides information on all of the fleets of Hub Subsector, every ship currently operated in those fleets, doctrines, and even their uniforms.  The book also contains an in-depth discussion of the Sword of God-class light destroyer operated by the Kingston Navy of the Faithful providing all of the detail you've come to expect from our Ships of Clement Sector series.
