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 this month. We plan to included a free 25th Anniversary Patch with all Dream Pod 9 Online Store orders over $50 for the coming months of December 2020 and January 2021.
I’m back working on the layout of the Heavy Gear Blitz 3rd Edition rulebook this week after getting our latest shipping mailed out last Friday by US Post. Now its another 14 day quarantine upon returning to Canada and our next shipping is planned for Friday November 27th.
Some great news to announce, Dream Pod 9 has started building a team of dedicated fans to work on a new 4th Edition of the Heavy Gear RPG. We’ll be introducing them all to you in the coming weeks and unveiling our plans and ideas for the new edition to get everyone’s feedback, as the project moves forward for 2021.
