Florian Lau wrote in to let us know that the German Kilrathi Empire Online Rollenspiel Deutschland is in the process of relaunching. Previous members and new people alike will be welcome to play just as soon as the rules have been rewritten.
I'd like to report, that the Kilrathi Empire Online Rollenspiel Deutschland (www.kilrathi-net.de) is being relaunched in mid-february after being sort of out of business for more than half a year. We used the time to restructure our RPG and to completely rewrite our rules, that finally set us apart from the german Wing Commander Rollenspiel, which we were originally spawned from.
We are, of course, still playing on the side of everyone's favorite cat-like alien species but our story now takes place in the year 2678, 9 years after the destruction of Kilrah. The empire is shattered and different fractions of the Kilrathi are fighting for supremacy. We are playing one of those fractions longing for power that seizes the moment as the Border World conflict is being stirred up again. After the assassination of Senator James Taggart who led the negotiations between the Confederation and the BWU the fleets of Space Marshall Geoffrey Tolwyn and Admiral William Eisen clash once again, leaving Kilrathi space unattended to and ripe for reclaiming by our glorious clan.
As you can see, there's been some modification to the timeline after 2672. The general storyline is partially inspired by 'False Colors'. Our recruitment centers are now open to the public.

New WC Toolbox Expands WC2 Campaign Support
The WC Toolbox has gotten smarter with another new update. Version 4.2. (2018-03-20)
Kilrathi Fleet Gets Large Scale LLOD Upgrades
A couple of monster models have made their way into the Last Line of Defense project. Using some newly discovered information, Deathsnake has scaled up his fearsome Rigakh cruiser. Fairly credible stats imply it's even larger than the Confederation class dreadnought! (2018-03-19)
Black Lance Transport Certified For Covert Cargo
After leading the charge with a pair of exotic Black Lance designs earlier this year, DefianceIndustries has circled back around and completed the Evansville class transport that we see in Wing Commander 4. It has a fairly sleek profile for a transport as well as oversized engines, which form a pretty effective combo. There's no better way to sneak clandestine cargo to out-of-the-way places!

Happy St. Patrick's Day From The Green Salthi
Confederation hull plating is well known for its green texture, and terran soldiers even occasionally sport a green tinted outfit, but it's a far less common color on the Kilrathi (aside from the kats that actually have green skin). We know the common brown color of Kilrathi ships comes from the hue of their local durasteel, but there's one major exception to this: the green Salthi - or Jalthi, rather. The Secret Missions for the Super Nintendo had to squeeze to fit everything on the cartridge, and one noteworthy cut was the elimination of the six-shooter Jalthi model. (2018-03-17)
Explore Wing Commander History as Prelude to Star Citizen
Magnets & Miracles Gaming has put together a historical overview video series going through some of Chris Roberts' older games and how they formed the genesis of what we see being planned for Star Citizen. It's similar to what the Cloud Imperium crew put together in their series of RSI Museum videos. Part 1 focuses on basic back story, Wing Commander and Wing Commander II. (2018-03-16)
