Default Hexagram contents?

I don't know what's in the 'zine. Given that it's available as an add-on to DoD, I'd really like to know.

If you do anything in TFT with Ships and Boats, This is the article to get.

lists out 5 different small boats & 8 different ships: Description of the vessels, size, capacity, minimum and regular crew size, ship hit points, cost in TFT dollars, draft, travel (via 5 mile hexes).

Describes Water Travel. Sailing, Rivers and Currents, Rocks & Reefs, Storms, Freight Rates.

Pulver did a good job.

That's something that may well come up in the setting I have in mind, so very valuable!

Another aspect about Hexagram is the paper it's printed on, if you can even call it paper. It's more like glossy light card stock! This is a beautiful accessory!

Just got mine and I love it! The best thing about Hexagram is that it is a quirky labor of love - just like the late 70's/early-80's zines that inspired it. Just a few pages of free-association thoughts about games (beautifully produced because that's just how SJ does business). Another great step in the TFT roll out. I've been playing more often over the last 6 months than I did since grad school (...nearly 30 years ago), and every session has been this addictive game.
