Charlie Foxtrot Production

We are working on polishing Charlie Foxtrot form the initial alpha release to the beta. This includes implementing any changes or fixes our editors and fans have submitted. If you’ve found an error please let us know ASAP so we can correct it before sending the book to the printer. We are hoping to have the book printer-ready by the end of October. You can submit any errors/typos you find via email (info@23rdcentury.net) or on our dedicated discord channel. https://discord.gg/H5eY2Q4 If this link is no longer valid, please email us for an updated link.


Savage Battlelords

In other news, we are working on developing the Battlelords setting for the Savage Worlds ruleset. We have received approval from Pinnacle Entertainment to move forward, and will be starting playtesting soon.  Playtesters will need to sign a non-disclosure agreement and join our discord.  NOTE: We will NOT be stopping production of 7th edition or 7th edition compatible sourcebooks. This will allow players to choose from a more tactical ruleset (7th edition/X150) or a more narrative ruleset (Savage Worlds).

Don’t forget to join our mailing each. Every time we get 10 new members we give away a Battlelords PDF to someone on the mailing list.  Sing up at http://bit.ly/BLMailingList

Charlie Foxtrot Front Cover (Final)

Ready to run some new adventures in the Battlelords Universe?
about 2 months ago – Sat, Aug 29, 2020 at 03:09:52 PM

Ready to run some new adventures in the Battlelords Universe?

We have the pre-release version (alpha) of Charlie Foxtrot ready for you to enjoy! You should get an email notification from backerkit.com about how and where to download this version of Charie Foxtrot.

  • This is an ALPHA version of the book. It’s not 100% finished.
  • There are no endsheets (the artwork the goes inside the front covers) yet;
  • The mini-atlas has not been added yet;
  • Some artwork hasn’t been placed in the book yet. There will be big green placeholders where the art will eventually be placed.

This file WILL be updated periodically and redistributed as we gather feedback from the community, so we don't advise printing it at this time.

We’ve found, with your help, that distributing the book early is the most effective to find typos and errors before the book goes to print.

If you find any apparent errata, typos, or layout issues in the files (other than the bullet point items mentioned above), post them in on our Discord in the “charlie-foxtrot-prerelease-errors” channel.

You can join our discord here: https://discord.gg/GwNyqtd

If this discord link no longer works (it has limited uses) and you need a new one, please email us.

Alternatively, if you’d rather just email us the errors you’ve found, you can do so here: info@23rdcentury.net

There are other versions of this PDF coming, and when they are ready we'll announce them via Kickstarter Update. Remember, these files are not final until we say they are.

23rdCentury Productions, LLC depends on both print and electronic sales, as well as great friends and fans like you, so please don't distribute!

Gen Con 2020 Online

We still have spots open for our classic Battlelords events at Gen Con 2020 Online. If you're interested check out the event catalog at https://www.gencon.com/event_finder?search=battlelords. Our events run every day at 8am, 1pm, and 5pm - Thursday through Sunday. The exceptions to this is that there is no 8am Thursday event and the evening event on Sunday starts at 4pm, not 5pm. These are both due to GEN CON requirements. 

We're also running Session 0 Workshop at GEN CON on Saturday at 1pm .  In the Session 0 workshop, "The authors of the Battlelords of the 23rd Century RPG will walk you through making a character, and then run you through the basics of combat. Each gamer gets a PDF copy of the Battlelords book."  If this Session 0 Workshop sells out, we will probably add another. 

If you're in Europe our 8am Gen Con games are 1pm BST, 2pm CEST & our 1pm games are 6pm BST, 7pm CEST. 

The events will be run via Zoom with some GMs using Roll20 for mapping.

The Battlelords of the 23rd Century rulebook has been nominated in the Best Art category for the IGDN Indie Groundbreaker Awards. You can check out the nominees here: https://www.igdnonline.com/groundbreakers

Status Update

We continue to work on Charlie Foxtrot.  Initial layout is complete. The book is through its second round of editing, and we are implementing the corrections.  The first of the scenarios is also with our two sensitivity editors, who will let us know if we need to add an advisory to the front of the book.  The artwork is coming along nicely.  

We said, "Make him creepy." Mission Accomplished. Who wants to ride on the Train to Hades with this guy?
