Charlie Foxtrot at the printer!

We’ve sorted out the issues with the print files and the proofs have been approved. Our printer is now working on cranking out hardback copies of Charlie Foxtrot. We expect the print run to be ready in February and reach our fulfillment houses in March. That means hardcopies will probably be appearing in mailboxes in March and April. Thank to everyone for their support and backing on this project. Thanks to our authors and artists!


Charlie Foxtrot PDF available!

If you can’t wait to get your book, remember that a PDF version of Charlie Foxtrot PDF was sent out to our Kickstarter Backers. If you’re a backer and you didn’t get your PDF let us know. You can purchase a PDF by clicking the PRE-ORDER button on the front page of this kickstarter or on DriveThruRPG.


Future Projects

We've been getting a lot of questions about our future projects, so here's an update:

  •  Savage Battlelords. Battlelords setting using Savage Worlds rules.
  •  Fully Armored: Guns, Gear, and Armor.
  •  Warmonger’s Guide books. 48 pg PDFs released periodically to provide a more steady stream of Battlelords content between printed books. First three guide books will be combined and printed in hardcopy.
  •    a. Book 1: Character Generation.
  •    b. Book 2: Vehicles
  •    c. Book 3: TBA
  •  Deck Plans. High-res, printable ship deck plans from our core rulebook.
  •  ARM Summer Catalog (Tentative title). A listing of Uncle Ernie’s finest hostile alien lifeforms.
  •  Eridani Sourcebook/Adventure (Early stages)

“Savage Battlelords” in Playtesting

Speaking of “Savage Battlelords” If you’d like to help playtest the rules please contact us at info@23rdcentury.net 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). This project will be kickstarted.


Old School Re-Prints

Under our Old Skool imprint, we will be converting 6th edition books so they can be printed using DriveThruRPG’s Print-on-Demand services. Currently, Galactic Underground 2 is the first Old Skool book available in hardcopy. More 6thedition hardcopies are on the way!

2 months ago – Tue, Nov 17, 2020 at 11:14:44 AM

Charlie Foxtrot Beta Version – DISTRIBUTED!!!

The Beta version of the Charlie Foxtrot PDF has been distributed. If you were a Kickstarter backer, please check your email for a message from backerkit.com. If you didn’t get it, please check your SPAM filter. If it’s not there, please email us.

At this point we will only be correcting errors before printing and adding the back-cover and credits page text. If you find an error please notify us ASAP via discord (Invite link: https://discord.gg/H4cF74q2Tr) or email (info@23rdcentury.net) so we can get it corrected before sending it off to the printer.

I was compiling the list of people we needed to thank for the credits page and it is substantial. The gaming community is just that – a community, and we couldn’t have done this without all the podcasters, reviewers, fulfillment houses, distributors, retailers, and most of all you guys, our fans! Thank you for all your support!


What’s Next?

In addition to playtesting “Savage Battlelords,” which we talk about below, the manuscript for FULLY ARMORED is nearly complete, and the new Uncle Ernie's is partially drafted.


Savage Battlelords

We have received approval from Pinnacle Entertainment to move forward, and will be starting playtesting soon.  There is an active discussion on our Discord currently about the playtesting materials.  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).

Charlie Foxtrot Front Cover (Final)

Ready to run some new adventures in the Battlelords Universe?
5 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!
