"I hate combat ops in nebulae." "Any reason why?"
The Milion-Class freighter in service with the Krak University States is an oddity. Not that it exists, but that for once it was a product that was conceived, developed, and put into production without requiring a recall, safety notice, or mandatory refit. Part of the reason is that some of the design components are freely… Continue reading Sketches – Krak Freighter – FT2
What's happened so far September rolled in and hit about as hard as I was expecting. It's the first month of peak, and it showed. It's not normally too busy for myself, but with all the disruptions everyone's looking for alternate ways to get things moved. That means I'm working to figure out the paperwork,… Continue reading September 2021 Sitrep
A second page of logo concepts, the one in the upper left is a continuation of using the same shape repeatedly, this time experimenting with some texturing to create a more interesting shape. The one in the upper right is a pretty generic design concept of letters within letters; nothing really inspiring, but a fairly… Continue reading Sketches – Corporate Logos 2

In service since the beginning of the deWulf Navy, the Mark-12 dropship has been the backbone of dedicated heavy lift capacity for the navy in every theater and operation. Initially prototyped as an open-cycle fusion drive craft for intercontinental rapid deployment, the development of the drive field instead transformed it into a broad-function troop and… Continue reading Sketches – deWulf Combat Dropship
Manufactured in a wide range of models, capabilities, and internal configurations, the deWulf Heavy Industries Massern-class passenger shuttle is quite literally the standard by which all other small craft are measured. While smaller than many other craft (including older air-breathing passenger and cargo haulers), the Massern's drive field propulsion system makes for substantially faster travel… Continue reading Sketches – deWulf Passenger Shuttle
I had a week off in August, and while I think I didn't get as much done in it as I wanted to, it was productive nonetheless...
The signature small craft in deWulf space, the Raumer Spaceworks Käfer is also the primary small craft carried on every deWulf Navy ship, from the smaller Augen-Class survey ships to the monolithic Sieg-Class Siege Dreadnoughts. Originally designed as a civilian small craft, its low cost and effectiveness quickly brought it into general Navy service. Unlike… Continue reading Sketches – deWulf Small Gig
