Welcome to issue 11 of the Frontier Explorer. One of the big events in the past few months has been the release of the D&D 5th Edition rules. The Frontier Explorer is proud to present a conversion for the Star Frontiers races and weapons to the 5th Edition system. Written by Michael Long, he and friends have play-tested this conversion to work out the kinks so it should flow smoothly into your game. For those of you who play D&D and want to try a little Star Frontiers, this is for you.
We also have the usual smattering of other articles as well including several creatures, equipment and optional rules related to medical devices and healing, and our ongoing comics. We have plans for a new exploration scoutship as well as data and background information on several notorious pirates and privateer vessels and their captains. Finally, we have the results of our poll on your favorite Star Frontiers module, a conversion article adapting Top Secret’s Contact Table for use with the Star Frontiers system, and a new character sheet and handy reference tables.
