The Random name Generator is a fantastic resource, as is all of Toris. Excellent work Deano!

Deano

After a somewhat extended absence, here's an update for you guys!

Added the GM's Handbook to the Articles section. This new sourcebook contains 12 chapters of material for your games and covers a large portion of the material available at TORIS. Go download it and let us know what you think.

Also added the stunning pictures by Toby Gregory for Half Twi'leks and Miranda Stardock.

Enjoy

...Deano, have you checked the Guest Book out recently, seems to be
a whole load of weird spam and all sorts of crap posted there.

Xain

Deano
13 June 2006, 11:46 AM
Well, I've purged the guestbook and upgraded the software, so hopefully that will keep the evil spamers away for a bit.

Deano

Grimace
13 June 2006, 12:35 PM
Hey, Deano! I got a chance to download the GM Handbook and look over it. Nice job! I see that you have a great many things (maybe even all of them) that your site has. Good to have them all in a nice, easy to access format now. :)

Good job on the layout of the PDF. It's easy to read and all of the pictures turned out good and clear. I didn't give it a real thorough look through, so I'll ask...is there anything new in the pdf that isn't on your site?

Anyway, good job with it and way to keep things coming out for TORIS!

Keep up the good work, man!

Deano
14 June 2006, 12:14 AM
Thanks for the feedback Grimace. The answer to your question is yes, there are a number of items that are included in the PDF which are not on the site - mostly equipment and weapons, but there is some other bits and pieces tucked away in there as well. I have also included some of the content from Project Hammer. Noteably missing is the Starships & Vehicles from TORIS, these will become available in a separate sourcebook in due course, assuming there is a demand for it.

Deano

Uron Teff
14 June 2006, 03:10 AM
Lucky that I found my way back to TORIS to find this awesome .pdf book you have created there, Deano.
I really like the section of houserules as well as the two skills and abilities chapters. Great work on summarizing facts there.
The chapters four and five are a very good compilation of background knowledge and information. Those two chapters are very useful for every GM - D6 or d20. Although in chapter four I would say that short writeups for some of the major ranks would be good to have, too.
Weapons and equipment write-ups as well as the huge location section are more than useful and are as well as the other two background information chapters before very valuable to have.
Altogether great work, Deano, what you and the other contributing authors brought up and put together. Very good!

BRodgers
15 June 2006, 06:10 AM
Great stuff Deano!

Love the Sourcebook...already downloaded and added to the collection!

:D

Deano
13 July 2006, 10:11 AM
Thanks for the feedback guys, nice to hear!

So, anyone fancy a Starships & Vehicles guide in the same sort of style??

Deano

Deano
13 August 2006, 03:59 AM
Just a quick update to the Random Name Generator. Version 3.7 of this generator can create over 44,000 Private starship names, over 350 military starship names, over 97,000 male human names, over 66,500 female human names and over 28,000 planet names!!

I'm open to a submissions to the generator BTW.

I've moved TORIS to a new home whilst our server is down. You can find us at toris.magriller.net (http://toris.magriller.net). I've also done a bit of an update - go check out the Aliens section and you'll find the Nautolans and some new artwork for the Klik'tak'nek. Also added a new pic for the Talos in the Starships section.

Deano

Grimace
11 November 2006, 09:09 AM

Oh, by the way, Deano...you may also want to change the link in your signature, so people that follow that don't end up going to a dead site.
;)

Uron Teff
15 November 2006, 10:50 PM
Then maybe a change in the link adress from the HoloNet's main site to TORIS might be a good idea, too. ;)

Ironmagin
16 November 2006, 03:18 PM
Thanks BRogers.

Deano
16 November 2006, 06:59 PM
Thanks BRodgers! Very cool.

I've updated my signature with the alternative addy. Good idea Uron Teff, Grimace could please update the main page with the alternative address. Pretty please ;)

Thanks guys

Cool stuff, Deano! I especially like the full listing of everything on the Victory Star Destroyer. I wish more ships in the Imperial navy were explained like that.

Keep up the good work!

Hi im been going over your page again. And then i decided to dropp by and say THANK YOU.

I love Toris its one of my favorit places to get insperation. The Crew Calculation rules and the diffrent weapons ships have been a tresure in my Star Wars D6 campain and belive it or not in some of my Gurps campains.



And i have something you might like to putt up.

Aero-Shield.
Aerodynamic-Shields.
Weight: 4 ton on light transports.. 200 kg on small star fighters.
Cost: 25 000 for a transport Aero-shield. 10 000 fighter aero-shield.
Effect: + 1D Manuverability for a transport. +2D for a Fighter.

Explanation. The Aerodynamic-shield creat a aerodynamic formed bubble around a starship that improve its manuverability in atmospher.
Many starfighter already have build in aero-shields from the start.

And the AERO-SHIELD do not work in space. Only in atmosphere condition.

The Aero-shield is not a real shield its a add to the normal shield on the ship.
The bigger and the more bulky a ship is the more expencive and stronger Aero-shield is needed to creat a proper aerodynamic bubble form.
As with normal shields the Aero-shield is invisible for the eye.

The bubble are Often a delta wing shape or in some cases arrow.
