There's a Dreadnought in one of the Dark Angel's HH books - the implication seemed to be that it was basically a way for critically injured marines to continue fighting and act as heavy duty face-wreckers.

It would serve as a rather nice contrast to the much more "normal" newspaper and emphasize to the players that this is not just our society with more tech.
As others said, there is one there - I've kept only one per issue so I don't run out of line too quickly There's also the date, so I'll have the next issue correspond with whatever date they return to either Footfall, Port Wander or a couple of civilised worlds (the only places to get the Gazetter!).

Doesn't come out right? Ah well, I'll just let any Explorator characters know or keep thte others wondering I used this converter if anyone's interested.

It's from the RT era Compendium as far as I know.

But I would like to point out that I have a bit of a hard time making out the titles, I don't know whether is it due to resolution or font, but I have to really focus on titles to read them.
I'm not entirely sure that's a bad thing - I'm trying to emulate Victorian newspapers with their (to our design sensabilities) illegible walls of text. Since I actually want my players to read said text, I decided to make the headers suitably 'gothic'. That and it adds visual interest.

Very, very good work Zorg. It's been a very long time since I've wanted to play in an RP game as much as this one, after seeing that.
Thankyou, I hope my players feel the same way

Possibly, I just stole them wholesale utilised the resources made available by Fantasy Flight- they're all their characters. Interesting to know there's still lazy name stealing humourous homages going into 40k products.


Oh and an idea for the next bit of techspeak:

Hi Jen!

More story ideas are always welcome, as are short adverts, personals and whatnot. If anyone was wondering, the Gee-Ball pics will all be taken from the Rollerball movies.
Printed out a copy and it looks pretty good, even if I do say so myself
