1 More The Hard Way

So.... again... I've discovered an error in QW12: Megara that made it to publishing rather than being caught.  I've fixed it tonight and new copies went out to all who were affected.

More of the previous lesson retaught.  It HAS been learned.

Alegis Downport reviews Megara

Steve Attwood over at Alegis Downport was kind enough to give a positive review of Megara in his blog.  He also offers some constructive criticism which I'll be taking to heart.

We're always trying to improve things here and between this review and the one given on DTRPG by P-O Bergstedt, I feel we've learned something we can apply to make the products that much better.  

We're on the path!  This Saturday will be the 6 month anniversary for the company and our first published product.  I'm pretty proud of how far we've come, but I also know that we have a long way to go as well.

But there was good news......

.... but I can't tell you about it yet.  

Two pieces of news arrived this weekend that could lead to some cool things.  I'll tell you more when I can.

Learn from our mistakes

So it seems that I made a rather huge mistake in QW12: Megara.  I apologize profusely for this.  It seems that when I was creating the system, I transposed the numbers for the mass of the sun.  0.95 became 0.59.  Doesnt seem that huge a mistake really, but once I built upon that mistake it threw a great many things off kilter.

The mistake has been corrected now.  If you have purchased QW12: Megara, you should have received an email telling you of a corrected version.  If you haven't purchased QW12, you won't see the mistake.

Mistakes happen.  But I think what most embarrasses me about this mistake is that I let get out into the public, that even after reading and re-reading QW12, I missed it.  It took a reviewer to spot it and while I appreciate his honesty and his notification, it embarrasses me that it got to that point.  But we learn from these things and it won't happen again.

Sorry about that.

Quick Worlds 12: Megara Released!

Our newest Quick Worlds supplement has been released this afternoon.  I think its a world in which characters can have some interesting adventures such as dealing with and/or drinking the Beta and its blood.  The government is just short of collapse and is quite decadent.  Lots of opportunity and possibility.

Check it out!

Concerning the Art Contest

I'm afraid I've left something out of the requirements for the contest.  My fault and I'm truly sorry.

With my license being what it is with Mongoose Publishing, I can't use anything that features something from the Official Traveller Universe (this includes the commonly seen starships (like the Beowulf or the Azhanti High Lightning), any of the aliens (Aslan, Vargr, etc) or any of the symbols (the starburst, the Solomani cross, etc).

I should have said this before, but sometimes I forget that most people don't know what I can and cant publish with the SRD.  I was reminded of it today when I got an outstanding piece of art that, sadly, I can't use.  I've informed the artist and sent my apologies.  I sincerely hope he's able to come back with something slightly different.

Brain Aneurysm Foundation

Just sent more proceeds from the sale of QW10: Campbell to the Brain Aneurysm Foundation.  This one was nearly twice the amount of the last one.  Thanks to everyone who has helped us by purchasing a copy.
