old Return to Jorune

A PDF only Newsletter from Copra Joe

The commitment is to have at least per month with at least 16 pags of notebook clippings, previously unpublished work, or beta test of material indended for later release. So far we were able to put out seven issues in six month and exceeded the page count with five of those issues. So far so good.

We have a couple of free sampers for a peek at what we're doing.

Sampler from #1 - Timeline of Pre-Colonial Jorune.
Sampler from #4 - The Dark Side of Jorune

You have choices: Sample Copy, six issues, nine issues, or the full subscription of 12-issues (at a discount). This means you get all of the published issues up to the number to which you are subscribed, and monthly email delivery to your paid issue number.

Next Issue

The Full Red Gate, in modular form if not fully developed. A Sholari will be able to take the information and run a game for their group. More on the Seraphim Guard.

I'm also look at material for future issues, like the complete "Blended Jorune" game concept; recruitment materials to attract the original Colonials from Earth (why di dthey leave); and my granda finale, THE CHILDREN OF BOMOVERIS. Maybe I'll be able to fit in THE PITS OF AUKLIN to clean house.

Hopefully it will be worth your time.

Note: With issue nine subscriptions will be 12-issues, which will include the previously published releases and the three more in the formal subscription. I might run two more issues, but those will not be under the current subscription structure.
