Re: Federation Admiral Public Update

I'm not sure that I would call Cole's comments 'disparaging'. He has a very specific niche of games that he works on (pure wargames with generally set goals) and anything that's more "free form" isn't his cup of tea (or coffee). He also didn't "get" the Campaign Designer's Handbo...

Re: Federation Admiral Public Update

*scratches head* It did make me laugh to read the assertion that F&E is a perfectly fine scenario generator for SFB/FC. Then I read the comment that Galactic Conquest is a fine and usable campaign system whereupon my sides split and my head fell off. *scratches head some more* Given that I think...

Interesting read so far... At first I was concerned by the commentary by the Gorn sector Admiral that one of his side missions was unachievable because of distance, but it just highlights the following 'realities' of such a post: 1. Too many missions, not enough ships/time. 2. Out of touch superiors...

So is this a sign that there's movement to have this published?

I haven't seen the rulebook, but based on what I've heard, the main selling point to me would have been the local campaign stuff.

Ugh. The part that's being proposed to be removed is just the part I'm the most interested in.

Still would probably buy it though.

VBAM as a RPG

Of course, VBAM already has a strong roleplaying element or inspiration with the concept of a CM running the campaign with multiple players. In general, the basic form would be a CM with multiple players who each have their own goals, which effectively created a 'refereed' wargame. I'm sure others h...

Hey, this was a good read. One thing I'm always struck by in reading the VBAM campaigns is the 'realism'. On paper, the big battle earlier on this page between the USK and the BC didn't look so one sided that the BC would be completely wiped out. Similarly, the Battle of Kor-Asir turned out rather d...

By the way, just so people know... SVC's (Steve V. Cole's) post is in his normal tone which comes off as 'scratchy' to some. So don't read much into his 'didn't understand much of it'. In general too, SVC's rules' preferences (given what he's designed) probably tends towards a highly structured, alm...

I'm definitely looking forward to this, and would be happy to help as far as 'editing'. My real job has some technical writing requirements and I think I'm a decent editor (of other people's writing, not my own!) I would certainly recommend sending it out to at least a few people besides yourselves ...

Thanks for the responses. I'll definitely be purchasing G3 "The Master Annexes" from ADB at some point, with an eye towards using it with Federation Admiral. (Just having watched Star Trek II everytime I type the word, I hear.. ADMIRAL!? Admiral. Admiral.... in Montelban's voice. ;) ) I ca...
