        A large full-color book describing Kharak. Large views of the local maps, descriptions of some key wrecks and locations, early chapters describing large sweeping details of the Heresy wars and the rise and fall of the various Kiithid. Something that those completing doK can get some more answers out of for details that don't matter for later installments.

        ...with a final chapter written by Fleet intelligence describing the destruction of Kharak, what little was left, and a personal message on the tragedy from Karan.

        Apart from this, ships and vehicles in physical form. A tabletop minis (or traditional board/card) game describing some other detail in this area of Kharakian history.

          Another art book with lots of candid commentary from the artists and developers. I like Norsehound's idea too.

          That and an official Kiith Gaalsien hood and mask set for recording eerie, threatening messages prior to major throwdowns.

            I'd say, just let me 3D print a baserunner... Just oh maybe 18 inches long :-)

              They did the book thing for Game of Thrones/ASoIaF, and it's glorious. I'd be into such a thing for Kharak.

              I'd like to see games in other genres for different parts of Kharak history:

              A CKII mod for the Heresy Wars. Seems like a perfect fit. Religious wars, feudal hierarchies

              A city builder. Probably an incredibly small niche market, but I find thinking about how a community of Kiith in such an enviornment might survive fascinating. Either a pre-Age of Reason medieval-ish one, or a Khar-toba just crash landed one. Preferably not combat focused.

              There's room in the Homeworld IP for a traditional RPG, either tabletop or as a video game. An open world game where you explore these eerie, cavernous wrecks for their secrets at a human scale could be epic. Storyline could lead up to finding the Guidestone.

                  The more I think on it, the builder might be possible as a Dwarf Fortress mod. Problem is I do not understand DF mechanics nearly well enough. It left my feeble brain behind years ago.

                  If they are anything like other desert cultures, the Kharakid build at least partially underground. You'd have to scrub most of the fantasy elements, but the basic structure of the game would work. Not sure if DF can model encroaching sands, but if so it's ability to support elaborate user made engineering would make for epic projects. Not sure if temperature management has been implemented yet though, which would be one of the main mechanics.

                    I'm a big fan of DF. Weather and temperature are a big part of the game, it could manage these aspects. I'm just not sure how the mod would handle technology. It's not sword fighting anymore.
                    But the planet could be rendered in ASCII. If they did Earth they can do Kharak.

                    As for me I want an RC Baserunner.

                      Some cheap light remote controlled versions of the Baserunner, LAV and maybe the AAV.

                      20-30cm Base Runner toy and 10-12cm toy of the LAV. Preferably able to take as much abuse as a Tonka toy. (These are what I really want.)

                      Models of every unit in the game.

                      Micro Machine small model/toys of most units in the game would also be nice.
