Some time ago I said that I might write an article about how the Buka Invasion deck came to be. Well, I wrote it, and tweaked it a bit here and there for a few months, and I'll call it finished. With the approval of some chap whose initials are RK I've made it available on my website: there's a link from the same page as the FAQ at http://www.mnemosyne.demon.co.uk/bgames/bluemoon/

I did consider offering it to some publication, but it's 3500 words (four A4 pages in 11 point - it's a PDF file) and I didn't think I'd find a taker. (Let me know if I'm wrong, whether it's now too late or not.) It's not directly on the Geek deliberately.

Any comments welcome, here or to me directly.

Oh, and since I'm here, I'll mention I will be uploading a new version of the FAQ soon - once I've written the changes up properly. A few "might as well add while I'm here" and one "bother, that really does need an answer" (which I now have agreed by the team).

I'd been hoping to see something like this, considering it seems you had more involvement with Buka than you did the remaining decks. I'm looking forward to reading it.

Dearlove,
I have read the article. It is a nice one. But I want to ask: (1) is it true that the Buka is the last deck? (2) will we ever see something about the Phar, provided that the answer to (1) is no?

According to the FAQ, Kosmos hasn't made any more plans for the game at this point. My guess is that even if there's something brewing, Christopher isn't able to talk about it.

The only thing that hints at Phar right now is that Frank Rehfeld (the author of the Buka Invasion novel) wanted to do another one. And that one is supposed to concentrate more on the Phar. If that one should happen it would be logical to accompany it with a play deck I guess.
