In 2065, a secret supersoldier project resulted in the creation of the first hybrids.
Despite sucessfully splicing human DNA with that of various different species of animal, only two main types of hybrids were mass produced – the primates of the Silva variety and Cat type hybrids. To this day, these two are seen as synonymous with the entire hybrid program.
After we talked about a few aspects of copyright related to role playing games there were a number of comments defending the stated cases on behalf of the users of protected content. This offers a brilliant introduction to another aspect of the debate. Continue reading
When they hear the word “company killer” most people think of a cold blooded manager of death, an augmented killing machine, a scalpel to surgically remove critical problems – permanently.
In other words, they do not think of Josh McCaul.
After looking at criminal and military characters, our theme for the third and last instalment of our The Red Star advanced classes series is espionage – somewhat fitting for a Cold War inspired setting.
The Campaign Setting’s background section gives a good overview of the Kommissariat, the combined political police and intelligence agency of the URRS, as well as their Western counterparts from the BCI and their allies and the decades long shadow war they waged against one another.

In Germany there seems to be no more prominent and hotter topic than the discussion about copyright in the era of the internet. In our country, this is certainly related to rise of the Pirate Party, but also in other countries there is much commotion.

Between Native insurgencies, inter-Incorporate raids, Black Crusade operations and terrorist attacks, special operations capable forces have become some of the most important military assets for the various factions on Poseidon. As such, specialist equipment to fill their unique needs has moved up in priority alongside heavier weapon systems such as sub interceptors and strike jumpcraft, which still dominate the picture of the colonial arms build-up in the eyes of the public.

In a remote cluster of systems cut off from the Imperium, a Deathwatch Killteam becomes stranded. Without command, backup or support, they find themselves in a melting pot of political turmoil, xenos incursions and the mystery of age-old technology. A plethora of tasks awaits the Space Marines, some to be resolved with bolter and chainsword, others requiring the heavy impact of well-placed words.
This is a shout out to the Orcish Outpost!
I was in Mainz, Germany over Easter and found the time to stop by at the store. I didn’t have so much fun shopping for rpgs in a long time.

Welcome to the second installment of the article series about my fantasy setting Nydele. Today we are going to look at what I perceive as one of the major strengths of the setting.
