Bulletproof Blues 3.2 update

August already? How time flies. So what are we up to?

We are still working on Character Pack 4, which we hope will help promote what we are calling the “second printing” of Bulletproof Blues 3. It’s not really a second “printing”, of course, because we have not yet created a print version of BB3. However, it does correct a few errors, and further simplify a few rules that we felt still need simplification.

We are also updating the characters in Character Packs 1 & 2, as well as the characters from Ruins Of Atlanta, which are featured in Character Pack 3.

Once all of the Character Packs are complete, we will update Ruins Of Atlanta and Evangelists Of Mars. We do not have any plans to make those printable.

Once those are done, we will finally release the updated “second printing” of Bulletproof Blues 3 in PDF. Then, at long last, we will work on the printable version of Bulletproof Blues 3.

This is all a lot of work, and I wish I could tell you when it would be completed. Certainly, I would tell you if I knew.

At the moment, we are not sure if we will release these projects on DriveThruRPG as we complete them, or if we will wait and release them all at once. There are good arguments to be made either way.

In the meantime, here is the illustration for Pare Man, the sidekick to Negro Matapacos. The illustrations for Pare Man and Negro Matapacos are both by artist Marcos Martinez. As with our other character packs, the characters and images in Character Pack 4 will be released under a Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike license.

Character Pack 4 sneak peek: Reaver

Here is another sneak peek at Bulletproof Blues Character Pack 4. This is Reaver, a Brazilian man who was abducted by aliens and given the ability to manipulate electromagnetic radiation (not to help him or humanity — just as an experiment to see what would happen). The illustrations are by artist Matthew Orders, also known as “Mro16“. As with our other character packs, the characters and images in Character Pack 4 will be released under a Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike license.
