Launched: The Second Doctor Expanded Universe Sourcebook

Holy crap, it took almost a year! But it's finally out, the second volume to act as companion to the 50th Anniversary Doctor Who sourcebooks for Cubicle 7's Doctor Who RPG. Where the gaming company covers the Doctor Who canon, myself and a very small squad of contributors (so there's room, join us!) mean to create similar books for each Doctor covering his extracanonical adventures from novels, audios, comics and more.
You can download (or just read) it HERE in high (printable) or low (computer screen) resolution, and if that somehow gets knocked out from too much bandwidth being used, the working copy is also HERE.

Considering Volume 1 took only four months to complete, you're due an explanation. Simply put, the "permanent staff" is comprised of only three people, and two of us had a horrible, physically and mentally-trying year. No need to go into details, thanks for understanding. So, here we are, a 109-page pdf document that features at least one entry from each Second Doctor novel and audio, plus material from short stories, comics, and even the televised show itself. People, monsters, places, times, stuff. There's a timeline that puts it all together, and adventure seeds aplenty for the prospective GameMaster. While I did the layouts, coordination, and editing, most contributions came once again from Peter "misterharry" Gilham, king among DWAITAS Proboards write-ups. I thank him for his proofreading skills as well. The third pea in this pod is Nathan "dastari" Laws who, like me, sometimes felt like he bit off more than he could chew, but threw everything at the project in the last few weeks so we could make this launch date. Plus, thanks to Olivier Legrand for a crucial bit of kit from the television show. And of course, thanks to everyone who encouraged the project; we're already working on the Third Doctor's book, which I hope will be done before Christmas (but I've made promises like that before).

You can make it come out sooner, of course. Check out the list of things we're looking for in The Extracanonical Pertwee, maybe you can help us out with words or pictures. If you don't know the game very well, we've got guys who can stat it all up for you. Get in touch, we'd love to have more collaborators. If you like Third Doctor novels and audios, that could be you!

Follows: A few pages for readers not interested enough to click the links.

Magnificent! And that's just from a perusal. I can't wait to read through it.

Where did that picture of Kate Stewart come from?

Same place Victoria Waterfield's did, the actual fan-made video Downtime. You can find it on You-Tube.
