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.
Hobbes Betrayal Crosses Over Language Barriers
Most people are familiar with the infamous video cuts that were made to fit all of the video on the Wing Commander 3 discs. Helpful sequences such as the TCN news bursts and Hobbes explanation were omitted due to space constraints. Fortunately, these are now available here at the CIC, but for a long time, the main way players could watch the Hobbes scene was to track down a copy of WC3 on the Playstation or 3DO. (2018-05-23)

Check Out Spanish Wing Commander Armada
Christian Klein has found another rare and exotic Spanish Wing Commander translation by DROSoft. His last couple finds were for WC1 and the Secret Missions, but this jumps all the way forward to Armada. It would be a treat to see how they changed the Voices of War manual and how the English and Spanish versions would mesh over multiplayer. (2018-05-22)

Trusty Tarsus Takes Shape
Now that the Talon's out in the wild, DefianceIndustries' focus shifts to the Gemini Sector's other workhorse, the Tarsus. It's kind of a shame you don't actually run into them out and about, because the design is just so darn charming. Perhaps some of the allure is simply because it's your own unique home away from home out in space for so much of the game. (2018-05-21)
