Just askin'

I saw that a game was being started (I assumed a private one). Assuming it has indeed started, how is it going? Do you think you will advance it along much what with Thanksgiving coming up?

Re: Glorious Stars Turn 1 Assembly Debates

House Hannover's Ambassador rises yet again (with some background chatter to the effect of "When will he be finished?) :roll: " This House also wishes to announce it's support of the other two bills before these gathered Houses. We are particularly supportive of the Exploration bill as we ...

Re: 2E Feedback

While I also wish to keep the current stats, I do have a suggestion. Combine Science and Orbitals into single stat. Call it something like "General Traits", "Other Traits" or something simular (I also like "Intangables") Because (by what ever name) the stat is so "...

Re: Observation/Suggestions for VBAM2 Exploration

I'm doing some solo playing using the 12Sept draft and a thought occured to me. Assume you have 2 systems (A and B for short). Both A and B have an unexplored jump lane that it is obvious will lead to a third system (C). Once you have explored the route from A to C (for example) does that mean you d...

Re: Idle Speculation

If they did have ground-based Q-Ship troops for raiding, I could see their small (C$ 10 EP or less) atmospheric FTL combat boats being equipped with decent FTL systems to get in and out quick plus some Assault rating to allow them to transport small ground combat units into a system. I like the ove...

Re: Idle Speculation

OK, both to provide some random thoughts for the group as a whole and to fish for suggestions (at least I'm honest ;)), let me ask for some more idle speculation. One of the species that are/will be in my particlar 'verse are modeled very much off of D&D "Orcs", at least as far as bein...

Re: 2ed Ship Generator

I liked it, It looks to be a bit faster than the spreadsheet I'm using, but it also doesn't look like it has ALL the special techs (but then again you did warn that this is a beta)

Overall I liked it.

Re: Future Developments

Nomad Empires: This is something that I want to see happen and could almost carry its own mini-supplement, but will probably find its way into either Companion or the next catch-all rules product after that. At its core its an easy concept and a lot of the techs that I copied and pasted into the cu...

Re: More Info on the Special Technologies Please

The discription of the "Expendable" type of weapon appears to be different from the other limited use technologies, like shields. For shields and simular tech the line is in effect once per senerio per factor you can do this, so you if the unit had a factor of 4 for example it could perfor...
