Slaves of the Earthlings

Why Not Games has published a new adventure for Rocket Age. This is the first adventure since taking over the product line from Cubicle 7.

Here's the website's description:
NEW Adventure! Slaves of the Earthlings: The Lincoln Brigade has been battling slavery on Mars, but a new evil has emerged. Where before the Brigade's elite Tubman agents have focused on freeing slaves and leading revolts, now they must battle those who would force freed slaves back into bondage. Will our heroes join this resistance to liberate the…Slaves of the Earthlings.
This Rocket Age episode sees our heroes racing against brutal slavers to stop the kidnappings of Julandri Courtesans, exploring the abandoned sections of the Martian city-state of Kostrast, and finally confronting the Red Scorpion backed slaving ring aboard a rocket ship bound for Earth.
Slaves of the Earthlings is available for purchase in PDF from

Why Not Games

Why Not Games is Ken Spencer's company that will be producing Rocket Age from here on out. The website appeared on Monday and it looks nice.

Why not indeed, and from that moment the plan for Why Not Games emerged. We are a collective of writers, illustrators, marketers, and more who just want to make games. Well, that and sell them to you. Also, play some games. Lots of games.

​We have a simple policy:

​Games should be fun. Yet, games are more than simply entertainment. Playing games helps to build cognitive skills, especially critical thinking. You can also learn much about history, science, philosophy, and the entire spectacular universe we live in by playing games.

​Any creative work, and this includes writing and drawing for games, has a message, a purpose beyond merely being fun or looking good. Ours certainly do, and we hope to spread liberty, equality, and fraternity with our games, and have fun while doing it.
Check out the website here.

Rocket Age leaving Cubicle 7, going to Ken Spencer

Rocket Age is moving on from Cubicle 7.
Cubicle 7 Entertainment has announced that several of its licensed properties are moving on to pastures new. Five games in all are affected : Ken Spencer’s Rocket Age, and the 7eme Cercle translations Qin: The Warring States, Kuro, Yggdrasill and Keltia. June 30th 2017 is the last day you will be able to order any of these books in print or PDF through Cubicle 7.
This was posted on EnWorld on Friday. It continued on with this...
Rocket Age is returning to designer Ken Spencer and apparently an announcement about a new publisher for the game will be made shortly. There were apparently books in development (at what stage is unclear), including a rumoured Jupiter book, so it sounds like these will see the light of day with a new company. Rocket Age had been with published by Cubicle 7, using their Vortex house system designed originally by Dave Chapman for Doctor Who: Adventures in Time & Space for the last five years.
See the rest of it in the link above.

There was a Facebook announcement from Ken stating that Rocket Age will, in fact, continue to be powered by the Vortex System.
I am happy to announce that I have acquired the Rocket Age IP from Cubicle 7. There will be an official announcement detailing where to go to purchase Rocket Age products, our new company, and such in a few days.
A few things:
Rocket Age will continue to be published, though there is going to be a short transitionary period (a week or so) while we get set up. The existing products will be put back out for sale as soon as we can.
Rocket Age will continue to use the Vortex system.
There will be new content, and with more frequency than there has been in the past.
For the first time as the owner, Rocket Rangers, Away!
So this appears to be wonderful news!

Cubicle 7 says:
We've been exceptionally busy behind the scenes recently at C7, working hard on a number of very exciting things. Soon we'll be able to tell you some more about those! In the meantime here's something equally exciting for the Doctor Who Roleplaying Game: A sneaky peek at the cover to the forthcoming The Black Archive!

The Doctor Sourcebooks

Almost four years later, I have completed the series and it feels pretty good. Cubicle 7 did a wonderful job creating each book with a great deal of love and care. Proud to have these on my shelf.

Here's the post that started it!
