Finally... An update!

Hey everyone,
So, so, so sorry that I've been offline with this blog for a while.  Real life issues and all that....
Anyway, I just submitted the Lightspeed RPG for Mongoose Traveller to my publishing partner along with the first expansion book.  I'll briefly describe them below:

Lightspeed for Mongoose Traveller:

Already a fan of the Lightspeed RPG by Christian Conkle? Looking for something special to expand your play options with the Mongoose Traveller system?
Well now you can have both....
Presenting Lightspeed for the Mongoose Traveller system! Now you can play as a proud member of StarForce, or set your sights on the mysterious worlds of deep space as one of the vaunted Colonial Rangers.... Experience the terror of combat as one of the powerful felinoid Mronians, or face off in ship to ship battle against the evil Pan-Solar Empire... Whatever path your adventures take you down you can enjoy exploring this expansive universe offering many of the popular themes and elements of modern cinematic science fiction together in a single setting!
This handy science fiction gaming book contains everything you need to integrate the original Lightspeed setting with the widely-respected Mongoose Traveller rules. (NOTE: To maximize use of this book you will also want to have both a copy of the Mongoose Traveller Core Rules available from Mongoose Publishing as well as the original Lightspeed RPG available from Comstar Games and Port Nova Media.)
95 pages
Includes black and white/color illustrations
Also includes 68 color ship counters (to print for this or other games)

Also, the first expansion book which adds three additional "threat" races: the terrifying Saure, the mysteriously efficient Hunters and the dastardly Robot Nexus:
Lightspeed for Mongoose Traveller-Ranger Threat Assessment Guide

They are the dark threats that wait for us out in the depths of space.... Killer robots.... Deathwielding predatory aliens... The things that nightmares are made of...

This 32-page add-on book for Lightspeed-The Mongoose Traveller edition contains background information on the Colonial Rangers and some of their fiercest adversaries: The deadly Saure xenoroaches, the nomadic Hunters, and the machines of the Robot Nexus! In addition, various story ideas and plot leads are included to both flesh out the Lightspeed universe and give GMs and players some fun ideas to work with.

Illustrated in Black and White/Color

With any luck they'll be on sale soon at Drivethrurpg.com and other fine online game sites! :)
