Zeppelins and Bombers the previously unreleased
official FASA Sourcebook.
Created and Written By Patrick Koepke
Crimson Skies has long been missing "closure" so-to-speak.
When FASA closed it's doors, and the board game went out of
production in 2001, there were rumours of unreleased sourcebooks.
A few scant copies in German, rumors of english printed copies
of something titled "Zeppelins and Bombers" a sourcebook to include
these two important components of Crimson Skies into the fighter-based
combat game. And they were just that, rumours and
Well here in 2012, the writer of Pride of the
Republic, the Crimson Skies sourcebook covering Texas, Mister Patrick
Koepke a succesfull writer on his own as well: Announced that he would
finish Zeppelins and Bombers as a good will gift to the Crimson Skies
community. He was the original developer of the rules and
designs, and was stopped only by FASA's closure.
Included in the un-official sourcebook is:
Campaign rules for running a long-term campaign of 24 seperate engagements with multiple sides.
Bomber construction rules.
And Zeppelin construction rules.
The ability and resources for fans to construct their own!!!!!!
course, the intellectual properties (I believe that's how it's used?)
belong to the respective owners, Smith and Tinker, Weisman, Microsoft,
whomever owns which little chunk of paradise. However with
no current seller of the Board Game, or it's add-on print resources,
this will be a welcome gift to the Crimson Skies fans out there.
