Folks  have been asking for more information regarding the new version of UWoM.
1). Streamlined chargen, and I mean chargen, not design. From random determination of personal details to procedural career dicing, one can whip up a PC in a fraction of the time by the book EC characters are generated.
2). It is a major expansion of the EC rules, while still retaining backwards compatibility.
3). It includes vehicle construction rules and combat, specifically space- and starcraft.
4). Has many tables for quickly making the setting you want to adventure in.
5). Includes roughly 20 Player Character Ethnicities / Species, with the possible inclusion of at least another six if the GM grant them.
6). Mass Combat guidelines, to be integrated with the Starblade, and Vanguard rules sets I have play tested for some number of years.
7). A space-centric Urutsk setting, concentrating on getting characters into the Era the group most wants to game, and covering the possibility that Urutsk is not the greatest part of your interest in the massive setting. Elemental Blood and the Patrons are still there, to be certain, but the entire 'Galaxy that Was' is available to groups to customise.
I don't want to give away anything else right now. :D
Thanks for your continued interest,
 Venger, John Christman, and others
