Re: The Second Solar War

Second Solar War; Month 3 The war only escalates, but it seems to this reporter that neither side can maintain the level of intensity. The fighting at Chiang lead to an ESU victory which turned the NAC war machine around at the gates of their main production worlds. This unfortunately meant there wa...

Re: The Second Solar War

It really is a fun system. Back to the war! There are a lot of battles so far as the ESU, trying to snipe their old enemy in the RH, struggles against their ally the NAC who is trying to win back territory from the First Solar War. I only ran it for a limited number of rounds, mostly worried I would...

This is the source material for GZG's Full Thrust system (https://shop.groundzerogames.co.uk/rules.html). One of the perks of doing their campaign system is we get to convert the setting too.

Re: The Second Solar War

The Solar News Network has learned of an ESU push in to Tambov, a Romanov stronghold on the border, this week. Valiant Romanov fighters (after careful revisions to the FT DV conversion system) made an offensive run against the incoming ships. While they were destroyed by the ESU they managed to scor...

Re: The Second Solar War

This month the Solar News Services reports the fighting has only escalated, with the Pan African Union announces its support of the Eurasian Solar Union. What they could only hope to achieve remains a mystery. We can confirm the NAC continues its assault against the ESU. A massive strike against Chi...

The Second Solar War

Hi guys, I am going to keep an active blog here of the active war going on in the FT playtest. We are playing a portion of the Second Solar War. As you fans may recall, the Second Solar War was sparked when tensions jumped between the Romanovs and the Eurasian Solar Union. Things escalate, as they t...

Re: Federation Admiral Public Update

For example, I think there was a mission that have you 1 VP per enemy ship killed. This works fine when everyone is more or less balanced and fleet sizes are small, but it falls apart the minute you have hordes of gunboats flying around. I had to work with Jay to get those fixed for WAP before it r...

That is nice work Paul.

Escalation Wars, in its many forms, was always a favorite to play around here from the Planetside days.

Re: Federation Admiral Public Update

Ten, eh? Such a shame we can't just have the one that was originally planned... a VBAM supplement for Federation Commander. How about when all of this dust has settled I go back and offer them a FC supplement for VBAM 2e :P . Sorry about being so quiet this week. I was traveling and had the PC put ...

Sorry about the delay on my end! I was traveling for the last week and had the PC off for family time.
