The last couple of months have seen some important collaborations here at FATE SF. One of these was a contribution to the  +Christopher Helton's Philippines Relief Package which is part of one of One Bookshelf's typhoon relief packages, purchasable here. If you purchase the package, you'll find a way to access some bonus content here at FATE SF.

A second collaboration, hosted at FATE SF, is a cross-blog community project called From the Zones. This project is inspired by the classic Soviet-era SF novel Roadside Picnic by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, and the movie STALKER, by Andrei Tarkovsky. This is an ongoing project, so you can contribute a post whenever you'd like to do so!

+Alexander Osias just made a stunningly original contribution, bringing the Fading Suns RPG universe together with Roadside Picnic. His contribution is called Fading Zones.

Finally, late November/early-December has seen a new round of posts on a few different blogs for +John Stater's cross-blog shared world-building collaboration, Kepler-22B. That project was inspired by the discovery of the first superearth, Kepler-22B. I did a post recently that followed-up on my contribution to the Philippines Relief Package by building a future interstellar setting with roots in Sector I-5 of Kepler-22B, the part of the planet which I am developing.

That post was followed by new posts for Sector T3 of Kepler-22B over at Hereticwerks, and for Sector V3 over at Porky's Expanse.

I am enjoying each of these collaborations, which are spaces where people have contributed based on their individual muse, gifts, and interests, usually at their own pace. It's also easy to see many avenues for crossing over and playing off each other's ideas in interesting and creative ways.
