As you are gearing up for Gen Con, getting ready the year pilgrimage to Indianapolis, I am sad to say that JBE will not be attending this year. That, however, does not mean that you should be sad because we just relaunched our Not Going to Gen Con Sale. This year, it is all about the print books.
That’s right, this sale is on books you can hold in your two hands. Those that love the feel of the covers, the smell of paper, the sight of seeing the book on your shelf, and the ability to make notes in the margins, this sale is for you. You can grab these books for a nice discount.
How much of a discount you ask? Easy. All of our print books that are more than $10 are $5 off. If the book is $10 or less, it is $2 off. That simple. And this is on ALL of our print books, even the one we released only a few short months ago. So if there is a new release you wanted and you wanted it in print, now is your chance to pick it. Do you want to read it now? Well that is even easier. For $2 more, you can get the PDF. This means you can devour it now and still have the print book on your shelf.
This sale is exclusively at DriveThruRPG and RPGNow. So hurry over there and order your books today. This sale will not last long. Share this sale with your friends on Facebook and Twitter as well as with your regular gaming group. I am sure they will want these books in their hands as well.

Bows and arrows have come a long way since the middle ages and they will continue to evolve in their effectiveness as time marches forward. So here are a few of the bows I think will be available in the future.
New Weapon Characteristics Wireless (TL 11): Every arrow after the first successful strike on the same target made with the same bow with the wireless characteristic is granted a +1 DM as the arrow sends back positioning telemetry to the bow. This bonus lasts for 1 minute.
Wireless Bow (TL 11)
This short bow is made from an advanced polymer-metal composite. It features an onboard computer, allowing it to know the position of arrows it fired for a short time.
Wireless Power Bow (TL 13)
Functionally similar to older styles of bow, however, the addition of energy allows the bow string to recoil at ultrahigh speeds. So an arrow fired from this bow rips through light armor.
One thing I have not seen done much in Traveller involves unmanned vehicles, or “drones” as they are more commonly called. These pilotless machines the size of a fighter craft handle operations in environments far to hazardous for human life should be rather ubiquitous in the future. To date, however, little has been done on the topic. So here is one that we made that you can use in your home game. We are working on many others to be released soon.

Recently we decided the Book of Beasts: Monsters of the River Nations should go out of print. It was a tough decision to make. It was our first book to get multiple printings but sales of it have slowed in recent times, enough so that reprinting again would not be profitable to do another print run. However, we recently decided to add it to DrvieThruRPG’s printing service. While we were at it, we decided to get book available for print that have never had a print run. This is still early so we’re testing it out Mech Tech ‘n’ bot: Fighters and Small Ships. So far so good and we expect to see it available for print purchase in about a week. Naturally, our print books will come with a free PDF download as well. Stay tuned to JonBrazer.com to catch the latest on which books will be available and when.
After we get the first Book of Beasts and several Traveller books available, we will be doing this with other books once they go out of print. While there are still copies available, these books will not be added for printing. So game stores and gamers that support their game stores, fear not.
Remember our Kickstarter project to a Shadowsfall adventure printed for Free RPG Day is going on right now. The more this project is supported, the more we copies we can get to you and everyone else worldwide. Support our effort today.
