Jovian Chronicles News!


Several years back Phil sculpted some small Fleet Scale Lancer and Wraith Fighters for Jovian Chronicles. They were made for a planned Fleet Scale version of Jovian Chronicles, that was never completed, back around the time we did our Heavy Gear Fleet Scale game. We finally located the models that had been stored away and added a small ball socket hole on the underside of each of them. These small fighter 2 squad packs are now available to purchase for the first time. If we get enough interest (orders) for the new fleet scale fighters there will be fleet scale exos in the future and maybe a few new spaceships as well. Here is a link to the Jovian Chronicles Miniatures section of the online store for all interested in supporting a rebirth of Jovian Chronicles.

Plus, we also have some of the Jovian Chronicles 2nd Edition Lightning Strike Rulebooks and Companions still available for purchase.

Dream Pod 9 Teams Up with Bundle of Holding for Tribe 8 Fans!

Dream Pod 9 and the Bundle of Holding website are pleased to announce the launching of a new Tribe 8 Bundle offer. Featuring the 1998 First Edition of Dream Pod 9's Tribe 8 RPG, a chronicle of dream magic, supernatural horrors, and godlike figures on a post-apocalyptic Earth.

When the demonic race of Z'bri horrors enslaves humanity, the Earth Goddess manifests magical avatars called Fatimas to overthrow the demons. But life under the Fatimas is no utopia either. Tribe 8 player characters are the Fallen -- outcasts from the seven Fatima tribes -- determined to build an eighth tribe and a new society on the ashes of the old.

We are also happy to announce that ten percent of each purchase (after gateway fees) will be going to the Make A Wish International charity, which grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. The offer runs until Monday, September 5, 2016. Here is a link to the page for all our fans of Tribe 8, please be sure to share the post with friends to let them know about the Tribe 8 Bundle at a great price and support Make A Wish International at the same time.

JC Fleet Scale Exo-Armors in Pewter!

Dave made the production molds for the small Jovian Chronicles Fleet Scale Pathfinder, Hector, Wyvern, and Syreen Exo-Armors today. I grabbed a set of the first pewter castings and took parts photos for each of the new two squad packs. After that I primed the exos-armors in grey and painted the 3 pronged poseable flight posts in black and assembled the squads. The image below shows the primed Pathfinder, Hector, Wyvern, and Syreen Exo-Armor squad bases in front of Athena and Hachiman Spaceships with the pewter parts photos below.
