Orbital in Print and The Dade Colonies Release

Paul Elliot at Zozer Games was kind enough to send me a copy of ‘Orbital’ in print from Lulu.com recently, for some artwork I contributed to the book. This is a quick supplemental review in addition to my original one I posted here.

This is the first time I’ve seen a product from a print on demand service such as Lulu.com and I’m extremely impressed!

The outer cover is glossy (this being a softcover) and the weight of the paper / pages inside is good. The layout of the paragraphs and artwork is level and consistent and the book gives an overall feel of being a quality product. If I remember correctly, the book was shipped quickly from the time Paul placed the order with Lulu.com.

The content inside has been reproduced in monochrome and the colour images only lose a slight amount of clarity, but the line art isn’t affected.

The book can be purchased from Lulu.com for $22.29 and ships in 3-5 business days.

There is something still to be said for having print copies verses PDF editions. This is most definitely a worthwhile purchase if you want to add a printed copy to your Traveller RPG collection.

John Watts continues GKG’s prolific release schedule with the publication of the ‘The Dade Colonies’, the latest in the ‘Clement Sector’ background, which I’ll be reviewing shortly! If you can’t wait until then, take a look at Drivethru RPG.
