Hi! I’m Drew Metzger, the new Line Editor for Ogre. Many of you know me from my sponsored sheet and rulebook, Barbarians at the Gate. Thank you one and all for the good wishes; I’m still pinching myself at this opportunity! I look forward to a long and prosperous journey in the Ogreverse with each and every one of you along for the ride!
With that in mind, buckle up! Things are moving along here at Command Post Fnord. In no specific order . . .
A set of draft rules has been posted at http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/new-units/ for Combat Engineers, as well as an updated version of the Heavy Weapon Teams. I think you will like what you see! But to be clear, I want all of you to take these rules out to your games and play with them. Try to break them. And then come back to the forums and let me know what you like about them, and what you think might need tweaking. I will start a thread for both of these units for ongoing discussion. Vulcans and the Ninja (!) are next in line.
Ogre Scenario Book 2
We’re moving along. It has cleared the final editing stage, and is in the process of being laid out for publication. More to come soon! A Book 3 is a given, and perhaps we can move to a Book 4 . . .
And if you have not seen Ogre Scenario Book 1, it's on Warehouse 23.
Ogre 6th Edition
The masterminds (read: Sam Mitschke) at SJ Games are working on the Ogre garage for this edition. The red box shows the factory's last tooling sample, marked with silver for the adjustments we want. The green box is a visual mockup of what it will look like after the changes. The point of the changes is to make sure the map nests nicely into the box and remains undamaged.
We are now anticipating that this edition will be in stores in late January. Everyone who missed out on ODE (and everyone who has developed a bad back from lugging their own ODE!) won’t need to wait much longer.
This is proceeding as well. Although from the last missive, I now have an image of a Mark V doing an Irish line dance in my head. Please . . . just don’t ask.
Wow. I don’t know where to begin. There is so much amazing Ogre-ness to be had that I’m speechless. Keep checking in here and on the forums for updates. And thank you for your support!
