Frontier Explorer - Issue 30

Suggested Price $0.00

Hello Explorers!

Welcome to issue 30 of the Frontier Explorer!  This issue introduces two new authors RJ McDonough and Oscar Rios.  RJ talks about the “Art of the Crossover” and bringing outside resources into your game while Oscar gives us a couple of new equipment articles, one on needler weapons and a second on restraints.

This issue brings back our “Frontier in Miniature” series looking at miniatures for use in your game.  This time, Tom Verreault kit-bashes some computers and transmitter arrays as terrain pieces.  We already have a couple more miniature articles in the queue so you can expect to see more of these in the future.  We are also continuing the “An Alternate Frontier” series by Richard Farris with a look at gyrojet weapons.

I thought we would be wrapping up the “Things That Go Boom!” series by Joseph Cabadas in this issue but while I was doing the editing,  he submitted another that you can look for in the next issue.

Rounding out the issue we have a pair of spaceship articles by Richard “Shadow Shack” Rose, a short adventure, some new species, and a look at food trucks in the Frontier by Tom Verreault, and a look at handling random creature encounters and an article on protective gear by Joseph Cabadas.  Finally, we have our regular Jurak Hangna article by Eric Winsor and the comics by Scott Mulder.

The full article list is:

  • Scouting Yacht
  • Surplus Assault Scout Hull
  • A Death in Port
  • To Boldy Expand the Frontier
  • The Art of The Crossover
  • Handling Random Creature
  • Encounters
  • Emitter Arrays & Comm Dishes
  • Anakalypto
  • Titan Rising: 2299 #23
  • Disarming Things That Go Boom!
  • Gyrojet Weapons – “Hissers”
  • Pimp My Needler
  • New Protective Equipment
  • Personal Restraints

  • Escape Run Comic #8

Grab your copy, sit back, and enjoy. And as always, keep exploring!



The Frontier Explorer is now listed as a “Pay What You Want” product.  As always, the Frontier Explorer is free (and always will be) and you don’t have to feel guilty about just downloading it and enjoying it for free.  Please do.  That said, if you want to help support the magazine, the pay what you want option allows you to make a contribution. Think of it as a “tip jar” or donation plate.  Just don’t feel like you need to make a contribution.  If you want to be a regular supporter, you might consider supporting our Patreon campaign as that not only helps support the magazine, it gets you early access to some of the articles and to each finished issue about a week before it becomes generally available (details on Patreon are in the issue).

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
