Issue #012Welcome to our twelfth issue. The theme for this issue is medical. We hope that you will enjoy it.

Sickness, illness, disease, injury and medication are often a part of our every day lives, and your characters should have the likelihood of going through some of the things your players have had.

If you have any sort of combat in your games then your characters will have injuries, both minor and major, needing meds or even surgery. This issue is going to explore this theme and open up ideas you can try in your games.

Cepheus Journal Issue 010Welcome to 2022 and our first double digit issue!

We have a couple of articles again from Jo Jaquinta, the first one exploring rare metals and minerals, as well as one on a quirky design of the space junk – including a deck plan. Plus, he’s given us the fourth episode of his fiction story ‘The Raiders Lament’.

Our own Paul Drye has written an expansion of a Sword of Cepheus role, the Alchemist, with lots of potion information to give some zing to your fantasy games. Norton Glover gives us an adventure for Zaibatsu for 3 to 6 players that’s sure to challenge your street samurai.

Jon F. Zeigler outlines ‘The Human Destiny’, a space opera setting of his own devising. We have two articles from our own P-O Bergstedt about online AI tools and world generation in the Hostile Setting. Finally, Brett Kruger round out this issue with a teaser for a setting he is working on.

Welcome to issue #008 of the Cepheus Journal. This is issue is a Retro Sci-Fi issue.

Our editors have written two articles: one about the Space Force outlining some Area 51 style adventure seeds and an article outlining how to build characters and adventures for a Space Patrol style game.

Steve Attwood wrote an article about Orbital 2100. Norton Glover sent us an article about Martians for the Cepheus Engine. Brass Jester has updated an article about solo play (that originally appeared on the Freelance Traveller website.) In A R Kavil’s article you can read about Lethal Hits for Cepheus Engine.

We have part 2 of Jo Jaquinta’s The Raiders Lament story, as well as his look at what a future galaxy might bring to gaming. Finally, Brett sat down and had a virtual chat with Independence Games John Watts, a great bloke with some great games.

We have also added a map of Lancaster Subsector (where the Travellercon/USA is held.)
