Description Edit | History

From publisher blurb:

Hello explorers!

Issue 5 of the Frontier Explorer is now available for download. This issue provides a smorgasbord of articles from our submission queue on a variety of topics.

We have several articles on gaming tips for both players and game masters to help make the game engaging and relevant to the players regardless of the game you play. There is new equipment as well as small cultural write-ups on a couple of the Star Frontier races.

This issue includes a clean, redrawn version of the classic Assault Scout deck plans as well as an initial look at variations on that ship, and a solo adventure that uses those deck plans. We also delve into the internet archive to resurrect some lost material on a new Mega-corp and optional rules for dealing with the expenses of owning a starship. There is also a short story by another new fiction author, that takes place in a new setting.
