Re: VBAM Galaxies

So I've been EXTREMELY tardy on giving any feedback on this project but if it would still be useful I'd love to run a solo campaign using these rules soon-ish. My wife and I had our first child a few months ago and we're starting to settle into a routine that would allow me to take a stab at it. -Will

Re: Galaxies: The Final Frontier

This campaign looks amazing. Trying to catch up on all the new playtest material that's been posted lately so I can understand it all!

Re: Replacement Player Needed

Are you getting my PM's? Seems like they are getting hung up in the outbox and not being sent?

Sorry, this forum apparently isn't hooked up to my current email address so I didn't get the PM notification! PM reply sent.

Re: Replacement Player Needed

I cannot fight the tactical battles I'd be happy to step and and provide some kind of strategic leadership.

Re: VBAM's December 2015 Update

I remember the very early playtests of this, the system has a lot of promise!

Re: Your Wishlist for Companion and First Contact?

Any updates on this? I'm itching to kick off a new solo campaign with the 2nd edition rules but it would be much more interesting with exploration and prototyping, among other things. :)

I missed the original post, but I like Paul's answer.

Re: VBAM 2e: The Fall of the Margravate

Awesome! The 'Hylian Confederation' sounds like the easiest to get into as a protagonist power, but they all sound cool. Can't wait to see how this develops!

Re: Regarding Solo Campaigns

So the CP idea you mention for example might be a mid-term approach, wherein the player has some interaction with the QE where they have gained a rough idea of the breadth of the enemy empire but not its exact composition. Before that they may have a more nebulous idea, after a few more excursions ...

Re: Regarding Solo Campaigns

As I mentioned in the other thread, really excellent idea. All of my solo games in 1st edition tended to sputter out after first contact since running two empires both actively seeking to expand gets time consuming. So I think you'd want to divide how much the player knows about the NPC empire into ...

Re: A New Beginning - Early Federation Campaign

It would be cool, albeit difficult I think, to have a system where new empires are not so much determined in full and gamed thereafter but revealed in pieces and developed as time goes on. Such a system might require a ton of charts however, which are in turn modified by those existing attributes. ...

Re: Your Wishlist for Companion and First Contact?

I agree with aelius re: it's all Influence, one way or another. Also I view the UE as the very definition of optional; they are vital to represent certain types of NGE's or polities in some settings, and could/should be totally ignored in settings where they don't exist (or aren't important). So in ...

Re: Crossover Works

For the Narn energy mines, another option would be to use Disruptor, as most of the tactical use of the energy mines in the game seemed to be as an area denial weapon that would force an enemy to evade them. Giving the Narns a weapon that reduces enemy formations seems to cover that, but doing it a...

Re: Crossover Works

For the Drazi. Not sure. One benefit of the Drazi I know is that there was some work done on their older ships by the HRT (Historical Repair Team), the same guys who brought the Centauri-Orieni book. I don't recall seeing ships but I did see stats though not sure I still have them. I believe a lot ...
