My first adventure for Reign of Steel is now available – at least to Kickstarter backers.

Once everyone who backed the project has got their copies, it'll go on general sale at warehouse23.com. Please line up in an orderly queue for your hygienic slaughter by ChainsawBot 7000,

This isn't the first adventure I'd had published – Infection came out a few years ago as part of the Atlas Games WaRPed Adventures line (though I originally wrote it for GURPS, I don't tend to depend on particular game mechanics). It's the first one with this much word count constraint, though.

I note in passing that Sean Punch's Action 6: Tricked-Out Rides shares the same basic idea as my Vehicle Modification in The Path of Cunning #1, and is therefore a Good Thing. (I can spot quite a bit of Car Wars DNA in there too.) I expect to use this quite a bit. No, he didn't copy me and I didn't copy him; the core idea isn't so amazing that only I (or he) could have thought of it, indeed it's in keeping with other things that GURPS already does.
