Issue 11Welcome to our eleventh issue. The theme for this issue is aliens. We hope that you will enjoy it.

In previous issues there have been a few alien writeups. Now we wanted more aliens, and we got it. Thanks to everyone that has submitted an article or more to this issue.

We also have several other interesting articles about starships, orbital stations, combat, inspiration from a TV-show and converting PCs from Cepheus Engine to Cepheus Deluxe.

Cepheus Journal – Issue #003

This is Cepheus 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.
