We're delighted to say the first issue of the Hot War Transmission
, the new quarterly mini-supplement for Hot War
, is now available in a lavish, full colour print version. Priced at £5 (plus P&P), this 36 page booklet contains a host of great Hot War game material.
Issue 1 focuses on the work of the late, great Nigel Kneale
, creator of the hugely influential Quatermass
TV series and films. Inside the Transmission you'll find a guide to Quatermass
, with useful hints about incorporating situations and themes into your games, locations from the series and films, and a Kneale-esque game situation created by Scott Dorward. The game situation gives you background, antagonists, and four pre-generated characters, making ideal for convention play or for slotting in to your own games.
The booklet can be purchased direct from our own online shop
. It will also be available through Indie Press Revolution
in the next two to three weeks. You can also download the PDF of this first issue for free (future issues will be available through Drive-Thru RPG
, priced at $4).

This booklet is a bit of a departure for us, as it's the first time we've ever done a book in full colour. It's also not something particularly associated with small press productions. However, Gregor Hutton recommended that we use a company called A Local Printer, who use environmentally friendly papers and printing products. The paper is Forest Stewardship Council Certified, which basically means it comes from recognised sustainable sources. It provides a viable alternative to recycled paper, which is nice.
