Cepheus Journal Issue #003

DownloadCepheus Journal Issue #003 the third issue of Cepheus Journal. The theme for this issue is the Closest Stars. There is an article about Alpha Centauri and another one about Tau Ceti. There is also an article about Vega Subsector about a number of nearby worlds, based on the Near Stars map from Stellagama Publishing.

There are also some rules for Sword of Cepheus, rules for Factions, a Vietnamese Rifle Platoon for Modern War, a review of These Stars are Ours! and a Provincial Cruiser that you can find in the Vega Subsector.

Finally there are three very different alien races. The Quarlon is a parasitic virus that will take over its host sophont. The Gebbebem is an insectoid race in a symbiotic relationship with a worm-like creature that acts as it brain.

The last race is the Nissi. A race that was inspired by the Nisse from Scandinavian Folklore. When editing this issue, there wasn’t room for the image of the Nissi (and a few other images as well). This is what they look like (if you can see them).

We want to thank all of you who have sent in submissions, and if your submission isn’t in this issue, it will be in a later issue.

Trans Dolovia Sector

Trans Dolovia

Trans Dolovia is a Sector generated using the Cepheus Engine rules. It can now be downloaded from the downloads page.

The download includes a huge PNG-image (4227 x 5305 pixels), and two text-files with the UWPs and the XML-data.

Most of the worlds of the Sector belong to the Neo Empire. The Neo Empire has recently fought a war against the Gebbebem Hive. The Gebbebem conquered a number of systems. The Neo Empire reconquered four systems (Zhanie, Vondra, Smine and Nadimitch) and exterminated all “bugs” that lived there. These four systems are now patrolled by large naval units from the Neo empire to prevent that the Gebbebem Hive spreads further.

In the Sector there are two very bright stars called Scyllisa and Margelinda.
