Description Edit | History

From publisher blurb:

Welcome to Issue 2 of the Frontier Explorer magazine. This issue is once again filled with system briefs, new ships, locations, creatures, and background material for use by GM's in their games. This issue also includes several contributions from community members, a milestone we hadn't expected to reach for a couple more issues. Needless to say we're excited.

Continuing with the 30th Anniversary of Star Frontiers theme, this issue delves into the archives and contains a summary of some Star Frontiers gaming conventions held back in 1999 that included interviews with some of the game's original developers. These interviews provide insight to some of the philosophies that went into the design of the game.

We also have the next installment of the Mooks Without Numbers adventure and introduce a new series by explorer Jurak Hangna that will present a new alien creature in each article.

This issues contents (article titles) are:

  • The Family of One
  • Friend or Foe?
  • Sci Con I & II - 1999
  • Digging in the Dust of Laco
  • Mooks Without Number - Part 2
  • All We are is Dust in the Wind
  • Eorna Defense Installaion Ruins
  • Great Aquatic Sandworm of Moonworld
  • Grymz Guide Comic
