Trail of the Scorpion launch and RPGnet chat tonight!

Rockets! Mars! Adventures! Get the inside scoop about what goes on in writing a pen & paper RPG adventure tonight, 5pm PST, at RPGnet.  This Q&A chat heralds the launch of Rocket Age: Trail of the Scorpion, a book offering a series of adventures for your Rocket Age characters.  I wrote A Prince’s Ransom, another more stand-alone adventure, earlier this year. Join Rocket Age line developer Ken Spencer, myself, and other writers of the Rocket Age adventures for a chat on making pulp science fiction a thing of the present.

Rocket Age: Trail of the Scorpion is a 6-adventure module that just launched, available in PDF or in print.  The Trail sends your heroes from Venus, to Earth, on to Mars, Ganymede, and finally to the moons of Saturn. Along the way they will discover and fight the machinations of the mysterious Red Scorpion crime syndicate and its shadowy leader. Hop on board for puzzles to solve, battles to win, chases, betrayals, and high adventure!

I wrote the fourth episode of this adventure series:

Sting of the Scorpion – Something bad is happening on Ganymede, and our heroes are sent to investigate. Their search for clues leads them from a Jovian Spaceways pleasure cruise, through the forests of Ganymede, and deep into the mysterious and dangerous black fog. What will they find inside, and what does this mean for the peace and security of all the planets in the Solar System?

Anne Toole takes us to Ganymede and entangles our heroes in a gripping, almost Bond-movie like ending. Good thing I wore a tux under my flight suit.” – Ken

Join us tonight, December 18th, at 5pm PST at RPGnet and pick up your Trial of the Scorpion PDF while you’re there!

What’s next for our team of intrepid superheroes, you ask?

The Crystal Cadets must reach the new Pearl Cadet, before the Darkness does! Their search takes them to a skateboarding competition, where Emmy has been convincing all the athletes to cheat—powering the Darkness to attack the Cadets! Will they win over the Pearl Cadet in time?

In case you missed the first issues of Crystal Cadets, be sure to pick up Issue #1 and Issue #2.  Stay tuned for the next exciting installment in the new year!

And if you haven’t already, you can still pick up the print version of the GRIMM FAIRY TALE HOLIDAY EDITION in a comic store near you, for any adults in your life who like a good horror holiday tale.
