Into the Cosmos Preview 2

In Cosmic Patrol the Mission Dossiers are more than just adventures. They really allow for easily and quickly fleshing out additional parts of the universe for players, all while providing the seeds they need for a night’s cosmic adventuring!

Since the Core Rulebook needed, you know, rules and a pile of Patrolmen Dossiers, didn’t leave us that much more for including too many Missions. Into the Cosmos allows us to remedy that, providing over twenty different Missions, covering a wide range of different, cool actions. Here’s a random adventure I grabbed to preview.

It’s Full of…Rocketships!

One of the few critics we saw when the Cosmic Patrol Core Rulebook was released was something akin to “your game is ‘rockets, rayguns, robots’ and yet no illustrations of rocketships?!”

Well, we heard you loud and clear…and we’re getting in some great Comsmic Patrol-style rocketships, from a variety of races, you’ll see in future books.

Below is an Uth hive ship, once again drawn by the wonderful Leanne Buckley. Basically an asteroid hollowed out and strapped with engines and other mechanical devices…the perfect lair for the Uth to keep all they’ve scavenged from dozens of worlds.

Into the Cosmos Preview 1

As I’ve mentioned before, Cosmic Patrol was an experiment for us in a lot of ways. As such, we kept budgets and concepts very tight, such as no “scene” illustrations. With the success of the Core Rulebook and moving onto the first sourcebook, Into the Cosmos, we’ve the chance to have even more of Leanne Buckley‘s fantastic art.

While the final bits of the book are still being written and flowed into layout, I couldn’t resist sharing how it’s turning out. Here’s a sneak peak of the first two pages of the short story in Into the Cosmos, as well as one of those scene illustrations I’m talking about.
