The Heavy Gear Fans and Online Community have been more supportive than we could possibly ask for! We have been able to grow the Heavy Gear Universe in ways that would not have happened without all your passion. With the release of Heavy Gear Blitz 3.0 fast approaching, we could not help but think of the Heavy Gear Roleplaying Game as well. Dream Pod 9 has formed a development team made up of members of the DP9 Forum community. This team has been tasked with using their combined skills to create the 4th Edition of the Heavy Gear RPG, with…

On this November 11th of a very difficult year, let us all remember those who sacrificed for our freedoms and please stay safe. Below is the poem “In Flanders Fields” written during World War I by Canadian physician Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae. In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up…


We received 3 more Tribe 8 Print on Demand (POD) book proofs just before Christmas, everything looked good and we approved them for sale. The Tribe 8 Children of Lilith (DP9-804), Into the Outlands (DP9-807), and Word of the Pillars (DP9-808) POD books are now available to order via DriveThruRPG in the Dream Pod 9 Tribe 8 section at the following link.

The next Tribe 8 POD product that we are working on now is the Tribe 8 Pack (10 Maps) color e-posters and with 12″x18″ POD printed posters option.

Hope you all had a Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year!

Dream Pod 9 has updated 4 more of the old scanned Tribe 8 ebooks on DriveThruRPG with new electronic versions that are clearer to read and searchable. You can checkout the attached image with the latest updated ebooks, that include the following:
– DP9-805 Tribe 8 Companion
– DP9-806 Horrors of the Z’Bri
– DP9-807 Into the Outlands
– DP9-808 Word of the Pillars
If you previously purchased these ebooks, the updated files have automatically been added to your accounts on DriveThruRPG and are now available for you to login and download.
We’ve also added Print on Demand (POD) options for five of the Tribe 8 ebooks (Tribe 8 Rulebook 1st Edition, Weaver Screen Assistant (book), Vimary, Tribe 8 Companion, and Horrors of the Z’bri) and for the Weaver Screen Inserts. See attached photos of the printed proof copies we received for approval. Once we receive proof copies for the other three ebooks we’ll get them approved and activate their POD options.
A big thank to Scott Ferguson for his help in converting the old Tribe 8 PageMaker files and laying them out InDesign. Its a lot of work, some of the old Tribe 8 backup CD-ROMs have corrupted files and need to have complete chapters retyped into the layout. Right now Scott is working the Tribe 8 Pack (10 Maps) which we hope to have available later this month for the first time as e-posters that you can tile print at home and with high quality POD 12″x18″ printed posters option as well.
We wish you all a Happy Holidays and stay safe.
