Thanks to the generosity of Power Projection fans who raised $203.23 towards Loren’s medical expenses, we are happy to make all the missing SSDs from Power Projection: Escort, updated for use with Power Projection: Fleet available as free PDF downloads with immediate effect. You can download them from the shipyard page here.
As a freelancer, this has hit him hard financially in terms of medical fees and his ability to work.
As a result, BITS would like to join in some of the efforts to raise funds for Loren and give something back in return...
Send a donation via Paypal to Marc Miller at Farfuture@gmail.com, marking it ‘Loren Wiseman Fundraiser - Power Projection’, and then send a copy of the transaction confirmation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If I receive confirmation of more than $100 in transactions, I will make the PDF of all the ships for Power Projection: Escort that were not included in Power Projection: Fleet available to download for free on 20th September 2010.
Midu Agashaam Class
Chtierabl Class Tender
These will be updated to match the Power Projection: Fleet SSDs and include Points and RCP values.
I will post updates on progress via the @BITS_Traveller Twitter feed.
UPDATE: A day left and only $11 short of the minimum at which I’ll release the PDF publicly. If you pledge to this, I will guarantee that I will send you the PDF whether or not it goes public.
Other ways you can help:
If you want to help him out as a thank you for all the things he has done to support Traveller in the past, you could buy some of his Traveller material published at RPGNow.
Alternatively, Marc Miller is selling some reprints of CT as a fundraiser. Details can be found here on COTI.
I have added a new ship SSD onto the downloads page. It is a small (400dT) armoured jump capable corvette ideal for shipping escort on mains. It was originally designed when the CT-Starships mailing list was set up as a proof of concept anti-missile boat vessel for some test battles. Enjoy!
Click on the icon above to be taken to the Shipyard to download the design. Enjoy! I'm not certain what ship I'll do next, but I'm tempted by the Huron Class Bombardment Cruiser thanks to the picture shown on the front of Traveller 1248.
