It’s that time again, the time where we all sit back and think about how thankful we are. Thankful for customers and our legions of game writers, editors, and artists. Thankful for our families who let us do this and our daily existences at “normal” jobs that get us through the dry periods.
Some of us are thankful we can still create—that we haven’t lost our senses or our capabilities despite getting older and more bogged down with stress and such.
We are grateful for all these things and hope to continue serving the gaming community in the future.
Have a wonderful holiday should you celebrate and a stress-free December as we transition into the new year.
Here are this month’s releases.
Avalon Models, Cymark Fleet
A collection of Cymark-based starship models for any tabletop game system. Easy to print, easy to fold and play, these models are a great addition to any game.
Look for other great models in this series.
Avalon Clip Art, Starships 6

Each set within this series offers you a ton of great art and for a great price. Each product focuses on a set genre or character type and provides you with great filler art and character art for your gaming products.

IF Threats, Star Pirates
AVG 3100-2.0- PI
A. J. Kenning
Vast fortunes are made extracting the many resources of the worlds of the Fringe, where there is little law and even less oversight from the otherwise watchful eyes of the governments back home in the Core Worlds. Yet, while large sums of wealth are traded back and forth amongst a few, the bulk of the population out in the Fringe lives in abject poverty, sometimes even in slavery.
This combination of wealth outside the Core’s watchful eyes and insufficiency among many—it is a heady mixture that produces piracy. The allure of seizing a wealthy cargo to become instantly rich (or at least well-off for a time) succors many. Should they make the attempt, and survive the results, the dream can even become true. (Until the day the Star Marshals come knocking on their door, of course.)
While pirates are commonly known for being an independent lot, in actuality, a surprisingly large amount of the piracy that occurs is sponsored. Of this, the most common type is corporate piracy—pirates given a free hand to seize whatever they can of assets of the sponsor's rivals (corporate, government, or civilian). Since the corporations are oft the most sizable force of law in the Fringe, it can wind up being a very free hand indeed, as long as the pirates are caught somewhere where the sponsor has influence, as opposed to a rival power. These corporate privateers may, from time to time, be tasked by the sponsor with seizing particular cargo, but are mostly given free reign to act as they normally would, except with an extremely favored list of people to hit (and a list of friends not to hit), with bonus pay for hitting certain targeted goals, such as taking X amount from a certain corporate rival and their agents.
Privateers are far from the only pirates operating within the Fringe. On the other side of things are those awful individuals that give piracy its feared reputations—the most depraved, the most foul in deeds and action. Slavers, killers and kidnappers, these pirates are well-known for boarding ships in the deeps of space and raping, torturing, and killing everyone on board. They prey mainly on small trade ships and transports, but occasionally raid outlying outposts and colonies with equally brutal force and carnage. There are countless bands of these pirates, some as small as a few hard individuals, or as large as the Pirate Lords of the outer belts, with thousands of blackguards and hundreds of ships within their company. Some of these Pirate Lords have made such a name for themselves that they are even known by the common citizens back on the Core Worlds. Names such a Black-Eyed Pete and the pirate queen Morgan the Red-Handed. Others, though, are just nameless killers and raiders, seeking a quick path to riches within the hardest part of the galaxy that is the space frontier.
Inside you will find all you need to run Star Pirates in your IF games. New advanced classes and more adventure wait, so take a flight into the night skies and have an adventure.
