I have the basic elements of a setting - which would eventually grow into a fully-detailed sector - for Stars Without Number; I also have the (electronically) written permission from SWN's author, Kevin Crawford, to publish it commercially as a third-party product if I wish to do so.

A short blurb about my setting:

Quote:
The Alkonost Sector is an area of space home to 40 worlds and 4 polities. While the “lower” half of the sector is relatively well-developed and engaged in inter-polity wars, the “upper” half is relatively backwards and primitive – and up for grabs for whomever could overcome its dangers. In addition to Humans, two alien races are present – the felinoid Fanja-Kanja and the insectoid Inheritors, as well as the sentient (and Unbraked) AI Cores of the Incunablis Machine Empire.

This area of space is rife with conflict and intrigue and has a long and bloody history. Therefore, opportunity for adventure abound. Just to name a few, there are civil wars on Ashera and Chomesh, a cold war between the Liberated Worlds, the Incunablis Machine Empire and the Kedeshian State, conspiracies within the Restored Alkonost Republic, roving Inheritor merchant-pirates, industrial conflict on Svarog, TL5+ artefacts amongst the ruins of Ashtoreth, Witch-queens on Baba Yaga, tribal strife on Zariya – and many more.

If there will be enough interest in this as a third-party sourcebook, I'll start working on it as a commercial book. Better yet, if enough people will be interested in it, I will consider creating a Crowd Funding project (on Kickstarter or IndiGoGo) so that I'll have the money to hire more artists to make it truly memorable.

What do you think?

Count this random interneter as interested.

I like what I've seen of the setting so far, the various polities are interesting and it seems like it could offer a variety of different styles of play, from exploration the poorly charted northern systems to war and intrigue amongst the various factions that have sprung up in the south.

Alkonost has always looked interesting and I've enjoyed reading your posts here about it.

The barriers to entry for games supplement publishing have never been lower, so I say go for it. We all know there's little to no money in this sort of thing, but there's tons of satisfaction to be had and that's something money cannot buy.
