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.

We've seen this sale before, but not quite for this reason. GOG.com is running a Lunar/Chinese New Year event that lops 71% off the price of the Wing Commander series. (2018-02-16)
Daedalus Station Gets Major Facelift
The Maslas Brothers have kicked off their big 2018 push with a huge revamp to Daedalus Station, the home base of Wing Commander Flat Universe. There are some nice improvements to welcome in new players, plus a lot of back end rework to make future updates easier to make. Other subsections include an archive of the Destiny's Way magazine and a ship database that syncs with the actual stats of the fighters in the game. (2018-02-15)

Check Out Kilrathi Saga's Swag
Longtime Wingnut Joshua Dworkin has put together a pretty neat unboxing video. Since this trend came along relatively recently, it's cool to see these done for classic Wing Commanders, and I don't think we've posted a Kilrathi Saga version before. Completionists will be happy to see that he's kept his unrelated reference cards and advertisements, and we get good glimpses at the awesome discs, beefy manual and super cool 2673/1997/2003/2014/2025 calendar.

Stealth Carrier Sneaks Into The News
DefianceIndustries has put together a very sleek stealth carrier that belongs to the Black Lance. He's dubbed it the Typhon, and it's strongly inspired by the Evansville class transport depicted in Wing Commander 4. The ship has been modeled in really exotic detail with nifty hexagonal hull patterns and interior items on the flight deck. (2018-02-12)
