Perhaps try the user Takiro. They worked together for a while.

Sounds great with the posting of the KU material.

The Wolves and Falcons story I really liked - so much that I was working on setting up a game using that as a backdrop!

Ok, back to the KU, I'll post the TH FM first, as that was in layout draft.

I did run a play through of a couple months.

Not nearly as professional done maps though.  I should work on arcgis a bit more often.

Here is the first of what we were working on. This was last layout draft, so it got very close to release.

Here is the Hegemony Armed Forces in all thier glory.

So you are part of the people bring back RL??
 :thumbsup:
have a question, from the kickstarter I saw, why the Common Union, not Commonwealth anymore?

We are indeed.

I might have to answer somewhere else though, so we keep this focused on the KU, not Renegade Legion, especially as this is another company's forum.

Did you want to jump over here https://www.facebook.com/groups/301355604312579 and ask the question there? That's the fan site.

Nearly all of the credit for the Terran Hegemony book needs to go to Knightmare, who wrote most of it. The TH in the KU was his baby.

You can find it on Patreon as well - we have free open posts there too, and are on Twitter and Instagram, though those two won't light up until the New Year.
