Crimson Eagles Updates!

It has been brought to my to my attention that some of the maneuvering charts and record sheets for my Crimson Skies adaptation of Canvas Eagles had some of the final facings missing from some of the maneuvers. Somehow the files were damaged in the translation to a PDF. So they have been corrected.

 You will find a file for Crimson Eagles Record Sheets and one for Crimson Eagles Maneuvering Charts. The are the correct files.

Sorry for any difficulties and confusion these may have caused.

Rippers/Late Victorian Gun Deck

It has been a busy summer: Origins, remodeling the living room, buying a new car, my father's memorial service, directing another year of Strategy Camp, canning, teaching my daughter to drive, and all the other things that make summer so much fun and so crazy. I just realized that I haven't posted anything since April.

One of my projects over the past few months has been the creation of my third gun deck for the Savage Worlds system. This deck is designed to be used with games set in the late Victorian era - particularly for Rippers. There are some overlaps of weapons from the Deadlands deck, but these cards are set up as the Pulp deck.

The deck can be found here. These also include a deck box to hold them that should be printed on card stock. Instruction on how to use them is here.

I will be attending Con On The Cob again this year as a vendor (I took last year off). The plan is to have a limited number of the decks professionally printed on linen stock. Two years ago I brought the Deadlands deck and it was a popular item.

I hope you like them.

Blog & Update

As some of you may have noticed I have taken down my website This means that the links to the files for Victory in the Pacific, Savage Worlds, Operation Star Fleet Command and Liftoff! are not available.

Fear not! I am currently working on putting those files into Google Docs and making new links. So, if you are having trouble keep checking the pages here over the next few weeks to see if I've updated them. If you need something sooner, contact me through this blog or from the pages on

As my ammo counters. Yes, they are still available. Send me a email and I will send you a price list.

Operation: Star Fleet Command - Ship Counters and more!

Well I finally have the ship counters, Order of Appearance sheets, and the next version of the rules. Sorry for those of you who have been patiently waiting for a chance to play the game. It is still a work in progress: I don't have the victory conditions finalized, the beginning forces are still not as balanced as I would like, and there are still plenty of many typos in the rules. But they are now available for your enjoyment.

The ships work best if printed on sticker paper and then placed on chipboard or card stock. Each ship sheet has a "patrol" and "raid" side and are laid out in mirror image for ease of application.

The rules have undergone a update. The changes are the result of play testing with my friends and various local game groups. The biggest change is the addition of Task Forces. This has made the game a whole different beast and really changed the strategy. 

So play it and have fun. Feel free to send feedback.

Hopefully this release will go well for Lou - he is still terrified of piracy and he won't advertise so I'm not sure how sales will go. Please spread the word!

Star Fleet Battle Manual - Prepare to clear moorings!

It looks like the 3rd edition of the Star Fleet Battle Manual is actually going to happen. I talked to Lou Zocchi this morning to finalize corrections to the rules and make a few changes to the compass cards that he wanted in the original edition. The plan is for the game to be available on by GenCon. I will keep you posted.

Star Fleet Battle Manual Update

Col. Lou Zocchi holding the new 3rd edition of the
Star Fleet Battle Manual

Just got back from Origins. I could only make it down for a short time this year. The test print ofthe 3rd edition of Star Fleet Battle Manual arrived from on Saturday, so I was able to give Lou Zocchi his copy. 

He loves it. Now we wait and see if he will allow it to go forward. It is helping that fans of the game have been stopping at his booth and asking about it. A big thanks to Thomas Tullis of Fat Dragon Games for explaining the benefits of DriveThruRPG.
