One of the things that we knew we wanted to include with Terminus Gate from the very beginning was a set of tiles that players could use to represent the interior of starships or space stations. We wanted players to be able to engage each other in darkened corridors of derelict spacecraft or commit brutal boarding actions in pursuit of their payday. Additionally, the tiles would give players that have little or no terrain of their own a chance to play in a rich, tangible environment with minimal fuss. With that in mind, we approached Joshua Bennett with the daunting task of designing and rendering our tiles. Currently, there are over 100 tiles that will be produced, including several styles of doors, bulkheads, and breaches. We have had the tiles with us for all of our demos and the positive reaction has been overwhelming. For those that have not seen them yet, below are some samples. Enjoy.

The universe of Terminus Gate is full of nasties poised to feast on humanity at the least opportune time. Aside from being able to utilize customizable creatures and beasts, there is a large selection of Contract and Hazard cards for specific creatures that will be included with Terminus Gate. Below are concepts for several of the nightmares we have planned.
We decided to reveal some concept designs for another of the other crew backgrounds, Fringers. Fringers prefer to ply their trade in the outer systems, away from the prying eyes of the Sol Alliance. Colonists, criminals on the run, or just every day citizens looking for a little more breathing room all comprise the inhabitants of the outlying systems. In deep space, trade lanes are plagued by marauders and galactic highwaymen while corrupt provincial governors protect their own interests more often than the Sol citizens they were hired to govern. Life in the outer fringes is hard and rife with danger. But, for those tough or stubborn enough to survive, the rewards can be quite lucrative.
