Space Catalog: Weapons (Draft PDF)
« on: July 09, 2022, 02:52:12 am »
A draft of the 'Weapons' section of our upcoming 'Space Catalog.' Set in a Victorian Science Fiction world, it is modeled on period 'Sears and Roebuck' Catalogs.:

Errrr, you seem to be missing the two enteries in your catalogue.

Could it be that, your  local "Evil Over Lord/Lady"(TM) has managed to get his/her minions to distrupt your marketing plans?.
Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.

The Ministry of Tea respectfully advises you to drink one cup of tea day...for that +5 Moral Fibre stat.

Thanks! This is just a draft so it may be an oversight or something that is still in-progress. Which two entries were missing?

1st & 2nd entries. Are you sure you don't have a unknown local  "Evil Over Lord/Lady"(TM) in your area?  :)

Oh, I'm sure we have a few evil overlords in the area, comes with the territory and all :-)

Ah! I see what you mean about the missing sections. This is only an except of a catalog, not the whole catalog. In the catalog, Section 1 will be 'ordering instructions', Section 2 will be 'Space Suits', Section 3 (this excerpt) is weapons. Section 1 is not yet written, Section 2 is partially written (draft can be found at: https://www.dropbox.com/s/vq3fopsa7x98c07/SuitsDraft_sm.pdf?dl=0 ).

General info about the setting this is part of can be found at: https://www.we-be-smart.org/~afrodri/Setting_v.pdf
