Blood Debt: Peace River Armylist ebook updated

We did a small updated to the Blood Debt: Peace River Armylist ebook today. Everyone who purchased a copy or received a complementary copy as part of one of the new Peace River Task Force Deal or Army Starter, should have received an email via DriveThruRPG letting them know that an update was available for them to login and download. 

Spotted on Phil's Desk Sneak Peak!

A new Hoplite APC sculpt was spotted on Phil's desk this week. With the new Peace River infantry that was released late last year we though it was time to give the Hoplite a redesign and make it a bit bigger so that it looks like it could hold 20 infantry. With big tires to show its improved off road ability in the badlands. The image also shows the old Hoplite and other faction APCs to see the size of the new one. 

Players can continue to use the old Hoplite when the new one is released, but we will be re-tasking it as the Mastiff APC for Peace River's Peace Officer Corps and continue to sell it that way. The Mastiff only holds a squad of 10 infantry, so the small size of the old Hoplite works well for it.

The next update of the Blood Debt Peace River Armylist, later this month, will include this change. Checkout the other Hoplite sneak peak photos of the command variant with sat uplink, rocket variant, mortar variant and light field gun variant below.

New Heavy Gear: Development Curator Blog Introduction

Author: David McLeod, Heavy Gear Game Development Curator

January 22nd, 2014, Blog 001

 

Welcome to the Heavy Gear Development Blog.

This blog will be a place to announce and discuss the new rules edition for Heavy Gear, and other related topics. One of the many fun parts of this development is that I get to define a great many things, one of which is my title. I’ve decided that being a development curator is a pretty good description of what I do. I’ll elaborate on that later, first I should introduce myself.

 

I came to Heavy Gear relatively recently when I worked the manager of a game store here in Canada. I was looking for a new science fiction game for the store and we started to get some in and sell people some starter armies. I started with a Peace River force, mostly because I loved the concept that an arms manufacturer would have the word peace in the title. I assumed that this must have been chosen ironically and appreciated the humor behind it. This initial hook pulled me into a story universe that is satisfyingly complex. I can not call myself a manga superfan, there are forum members who can quote line and verse from every mecha film and series ever made, but I can call myself a fan.
