capi3101 has finished up his latest Wing Commander RPG campaign. The story here follows the exciting episode that culminated in the loss of the majestic TCS Concordia on Vespus, off the Mistral Coast. At least, that's how it happened the first time around... Players will find themselves flying off a Confederation cruiser that becomes involved with fateful events that occurred in the weeks leading up to Wing Commander 3. The entire campaign is available here as a 4.1 megabyte PDF. He's also offered it up on Lulu in case anyone would like a printed copy. You can find more information on the Wing Commander RPG here.
Gentlemen, I'm please to announce that after nearly eight months of work, the Vespus campaign is finally complete. As with Prelude and Enyo, I have it available from Lulu.com as a free PDF and as a paperback. The paperback is going for $7.48 plus S&H and tax; my copy came to about $11.50 all told.
capi put the finishing touches on the project on August 10, so he also included a kind mention of the CIC's 15th Birthday on the title page. Thanks!
TCS Concordia. Mighty flagship of the Enigma Sector fleet. The player's home base in Wing Commander II. The ship that turned back the Kilrathi at the Battle of Earth. The story of how she wound up in the Mistral Sea has never been told...until now. As a pilot aboard the cruiser TCS Bhopal, it is your job to save the lives of over five million Confederation colonists, and if you fly well, you may have the opportunity to rewrite history and save a legendary ship.
Vespus is a miniature campaign developed for the Wing Commander Role-Playing Game. This guidebook contains all the information you need to safeguard the five million colonists living on the surface of Vespus Prime, including:
- A simple, yet flexible character creation system.
- A set of ready-made characters, allowing players to jump right into the game.
- Stats on all capital ships and vehicles included in the campaign.
- Flexible rules that allow players to play with as much detail and complexity as they wish.
Mark Hamill To Receive Hollywood Star
Thanks in part to his recent success resuming the role of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars, actor Mark Hamill will soon be getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The ceremony is set for March 8, 2018 at 11:30 am. I'd encourage Wing Commander fans nearby to go check it out, but the crowd will likely be substantial. (2018-02-22)

New 3D Prints Highlight Gemini Sector Hotness
Sonnich Johannesen has shown off some large scale and beautifully detailed 3D prints from Wing Commander Privateer. The Centurion and (not pictured) Galaxy are from Astrofossil and the Tarsus model was designed by DJFX, who posted some gorgeous pics of his own a while back. The size of each of these is impressive, and Sonnich has posted some neat pictures of these ships coming together on the printer. (2018-02-20)
Paper Cruiser Returns Stronger & Better Armed
Adm_Maverick's Tallahassee papercraft cruiser is back again in a whole new way. This second major iteration improves on the first in a number of ways, including how the main hull fits together. It also has interior components that form the bow-mounted capship missile launcher. (2018-02-19)
Live Wing Commander Jazz Recording A Huge Success!
Origin composer George Oldziey has completed his live recording of Wing Commander jazz music. The event was conducted last week at George's studio in Austin, and pictures from the day make it look like they had a lot of fun! Initial results also sound fantastic, and we're anxious to hear how everything comes together in the finished album. (2018-02-18)
