<+Ed_Jowett> Hi everyone, and thanks for having me back.
<+Ed_Jowett> I’m here to talk about The Era Zone.
<+Ed_Jowett> (Link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/shadesofvengeance/the-era-zone?ref=80rq8w)https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/shadesofvengeance/the-era-zone?ref=80rq8w
<+Ed_Jowett> This is our contribution to Zine Quest, an initiative run by the Games team at Kickstarter.
<+Ed_Jowett> We’re aiming to bring some more content for all of the Era games, as well as some great setting-neutral content for the Sci-Fi fans out there.
<+Ed_Jowett> Each of the games gets something new: campaigns, for some of them, while Era: The Empowered offers some new power trees for characters, Era: Silence gets some new challenges and Era: Lyres gets a new tavern or two!
<+Ed_Jowett> Era: Hitman probably has the most unusual piece – a few “Optional Targets” which you can add into any campaign for an extra reward.
<+Ed_Jowett> Anyone who wants to know more about the games in general can have a fast look at my livestream, where I spoke about them: (Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ql8e9nQsCEU)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ql8e9nQsCEU
<+Ed_Jowett> And the setting-neutral content – Encounters on the Edge of Space – is like a Sci-Fi version of all those fantasy bestiaries you keep seeing online. I don’t see enough Sci-Fi ones, so I decided to add to what’s on offer by creating a version which can be applied to any Sci-Fi game, from our own Era: The Consortium to Star Wars, Star Trek, BSG, etc…
<+Ed_Jowett> whatever universe you like.
<+Ed_Jowett> Finally, we also have some Q&As by some fairly awesome people in the Zine, covering general questions about the hows and whys of what we do…
<+Ed_Jowett> one set of which is written by our very own Dan!

<+Ed_Jowett> The Kickstarter was initially offering two issues (and the content will vary from issue to issue, but will continue to support all of our games, as well as Encounters), but we’ve recently reached a Stretch Goal which now means there will be three issues in 2019.
<+Ed_Jowett> There’s one more available, only a couple of hundred dollars above where we are now which will give the full quarterly offering – 4 issues in the year!
<+Ed_Jowett> So I’m super excited about all of that!
<+Ed_Jowett> And that’s me done, so please feel free to ask any questions you have!
