My Aliens map isn't online, but here's one someone else did and posted at BoardGameGeek.com:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/fullimage/101474

The game rules are available there, too, in text (not PDF) format:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/browser.ph ... ameid=1770

Once I have one more promo screen done, I'm going to make an animated GIF that cycles through all of them.

I've updated the Features page to bring it more in line with v1.0.7a, and also updated the Downloads page to make v1.0.7a the new official (i.e., non-beta) version.

I updated the promo pic on the home page. This time it's a sci-fi theme. Specifically, the Aliens game I ran at iCon.

Soon I'll make an animated GIF that cycles through all of the various promo pics that have come before. That should drive home the point that BRPG is suitable for all genres of gaming.

I posted some images on boardgamegeek.com:

But the full map is not available for download, I'm afraid.

Update the home page, the Downloads page, and the Features page to reflect the fact that the sample adventure has been released.

Hey, in a little while you should consider taking a screen shot from the sample adventure and using it on the front page of the site.

Heh, funny you should say that, because I was planning on doing that tomorrow. At the same time that I switch from a static JPG promo pic to an animated GIF that cycles through all the prior promo pics in addition to some new ones taken from the adventure.

And once that's done, I'll start work on the next BRPG update. :wink:

I updated the first two screenshots on the Screenshots page with new scenes that are more interesting visually and show off some of the new Fog of War features.

I also updated the Fog of War panel screenshot on the "More Screenshots" page, since the original picture was obsolete.

OK, the new animated GIF is posted. Check it out on the home page and let me know if it's effective at conveying the message that BRPG is suitable for any genre or RPG system.

Huh... what....I can't play "Toon" on this. :wink:

Looks cool Heruca. When is our first western game to round out the genres?

Western would be a good genre to add. I''d also like to get a Star Wars Minis game in the sequence at some point. And maybe something with Battlemechs.

I like the Gif slide show! Well done... I think it demonstrates the non-system specific aspect of BGRP quite well.

Updated the "Links & Resources" page to include two VTT feature comparison charts, and two VTT-related sites.

I've added yet another virtual tabletop app to the Links & Resources page.

It's called GlitterComm (Windows-only). It appears that the last free beta has just been released, and it will henceforth be a commercial VT app.

Now approaching 40 VTTs!

I've added a few more virtual tabletop apps to the Links & Resources page:

iTabletop
Dungeon Helper
Avalomhilly

I also deleted the Java speed reference on the Features page, per Trevor's request.

I have updated the Home page, the Features page, and the Licenses page on the main site.

Regarding the changes to the Licenses page, I updated it in order to provide more information, and to clear up a popular misconception that BRPG licenses are forever tied to a particular computer, and that you need to purchase a license again if you ever want to move BRPG to another computer. This is simply not true.

Some interesting new developments:
It now seems that GlitterComm will actually be free, not commercial after all.
It has a new 3D view.

I've updated the Home page, the Features page (to include new features added since v1.0.8b, and new features added in the v1.2 beta), the System Requirements page, the Screenshots page (fixed the numbering on the thumbnails), and the Links & Resouces page (added a link to EpicTable, and fixed the link to the iCon VT Feature Comparison Chart).
