I guess that's what I get for not checking the product page regularly.
Yeah, some info would be nice. I kind of get a "Han Solo-ish" vibe from this.

As the author, guess I should pipe up.
Another Fine Mess is an adventure module for StarSIEGE that is somewhere between Battlestar Galactica and Firefly, leaning heavily towards the latter. It's set by default in the Victory:2242 setting but can easily be ported to just about any space faring setting you like, and it opens some interesting plot points as a potential opening for a campaign.

Does it have flying fire breathing lemurs?

I need an adventure that has those. Might have to include them in Ruins & Radiation [tm].

Sadly, no. I really wanted them in, but just couldn't figure a way to work it.

Damn!
Sounds like a nifty little project, Jason. Hope to see it soon. The Pulp thing sounds neat fun too.

Thanks, fellas. I hope you all like it. It's designed to be a pretty straightforward little adventure scenario. Hopefully it works out. Ran okay in playtest.

As for Pulp SIEGE, I'm looking forward to that myself!

Battlestar and Firefly !!??!

Damn it, the Trolls are going to get my ass broke on this stuff !!

After getting my copy of StarSiege as soon as it was available for shipping to Europe, i was at least at peace with myself now owning an ultimate-badass-overgreat SciFi game which had EVERYTHING needed to get ANYTHING played.

I was so damn sure i wouldn't even been intersted in modules or supplements, i usually never am !

Now there's yet ANOTHER TLG product on the line i will want to own !!

Just keep it coming guys, my bank account will have to take it !

Wasn't that also the name of a FUDGE module? Where the PCs were a ranger's animal companions?

No clue...but I don't think we'll run into problems, because my ANF has nothing to do whatsoever with rangers and animals

Another Fine Mess is a 1930 short comedy film starring Laurel and Hardy.

The title reminds me of Another Fine Myth by Robert Aspirin.

The blurb indeed does look like the adventure could be easily ported to other settings! I may snag this.

I wish TLG listed their authors instead of just saying under Author: Troll Lord Games.

It is odd that I'm not listed as such, though...

If anyone actually picked this up I'd be interested to hear your thoughts...it's my first published adventure module, all my other credits having been sourcebooks and core games...

Erm, that's not very cool
Any reason why you weren't credited?

I'm credited in the module, just not on the cover or the website.

I have the module but have yet to start a campaign that could make use of it.

I really wanted this but my flgs didn't stock it. I'll have them order it for me and tell you what I think. I really like SS and would like to see more products for it.

Thanks, I'm glad you liked it! The editing and layout could've been better, but the Trolls were a bit rushed to get it to press...
