We decided to get an early start to Dream Pod 9’s Annual Holiday Sale for 2020 today. With 15% OFF Jovian Wars spaceships, squads, parts, chibi, decals, dice, etc. from November 19th 2020 thru Midnight EST January 3rd 2021. We plan to announce more specials next week for US Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday. Here is a link to the Jovian Wars ordering page on the DP9 Online Store for those interested.
We still need entries for the Jovian Wars Golden Exo 2020 Painting Completion, so we’ve extended the deadline to Midnight EST December 30th 2020. Our next shipping day is planned for Friday November 27th and all orders received by the morning of Thursday Nov. 26th will ship that Friday. So, get your Jovian Wars orders in this week to receive them in early December (for US & Canadian orders), then get painting, take photos and send in your entries. International shipping normally takes 3-4 weeks, but US/International Postal Services have been taking longer since Covid-19 has become the new normal in the world.
Then we’ll be on another 14 day quarantine after returning to Canada from the US Post shipping. Our next planned shipping after that is Friday December 18th 2020, one week before Christmas. Next shipping after that is planned for Friday January 8th 2021.

On this November 11th of a very difficult year, let us all remember those who sacrificed for our freedoms and please stay safe. Below is the poem “In Flanders Fields” written during World War I by Canadian physician Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae. In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up…
The 25th Anniversary of Dream Pod 9 is fast approaching. DP9 was originally the design team for Ianus Publications, publisher of Protoculture Addicts and Mecha Press magazines back in the 1990s and its gaming section, Ianus Games. But all that changed on December 6th, 1995 when Dream Pod 9 became a company. To commemorate the 25th Anniversary we designed a new embroidered patch, you can see a preview attached with the original artwork and first proof sample that was sent us for approval. The final production patches should have straighter merrowed edges and are expected back at the end of…
