|I was a member of the Last Unicorn Games "writing pool" during
the last year of the company's existence, when their finances faltered
entirely. They were eventually purchased by Wizards of the Coast, then
One of the unfortunate consequences is that the work of many writers
and developers - myself included - fell through the cracks left by LUG's
demise. I've created this corner of my website to present the original
drafts - in varying degrees of completion - of all my unpublished LUGtrek
work available in electronic form.
- The Deltans - The rough
draft of the Deltan writeup from Final Frontiers, the film-era
sourcebook. I was the book's developer. This draft is whimsical in spots,
and some of the double-entendres might not have made it past Paramount.
- The Regulans - The
rough draft of the Regulans (read: Caitians, but we weren't allowed to
say that) from the same book.
- Rigel III - Expanded
material on Rigel III written for Sky Princes of Orion, the
Rigel System sourcebook.
- Narrating in Klingon
- The GMing advice chapter from the much-anticipated Klingon sourcebook.
- To Serve and Protect: The Security
Campaign - The GMing advice chapter from the "redshirt
book," Starfleet Security (actually the "yellowjacket"
book, since it was for the TNG era, but Security will always
be redshirts to me).
- Mirror Andoria - A brief
snippet from Through A Glass Darkly, the Mirror Universe
sourcebook (my only contribution to a supplement that would have been thoroughly
- Distant Ports Call
- The GMing advice chapter from the Merchants & Traders
sourcebook for the Deep Space Nine RPG.
- Exploration for the Narrator
- The GMing advice chapter for To Boldly Go, the TNG
sourcebook on the exploration theme.
These articles are unfinished and "drafty," but the potential
is there, I think. To my knowledge, none of these items were approved by
Paramount; these projects were all frozen before the approvals stage. Edited
versions of the exploration and Klingon material may have been approved,
but the unedited versions are presented here. Some articles have missing
sections, missing stats, and missing diagrams due to the incomplete nature
of the drafts. If you find these articles interesting, please visit my
online venture, Cumberland
Games, and see if you find anything you like! Bookmark my main LUGtrek
