The big news is that we have identified a team and are getting things rolling on the Ballooners Sourcebook.
I have a new person working on the vehicular loadouts project. She is taking this on as a summer project between semesters at college. I expect to see great things from her as the summer progresses.
Rick Hershey our new art director is back working on the Daedalus Adventure Module.
The Tech Drawings are still at the draftsman. I expect that he will be finished with them soon.
Rick will start searching for a new artist to do the cover art for these.
There is one more piece for the PD Screen Booklet before it moves to Blueline Editing. ________________________________________________________________
