Re: VBAM Galaxies

Yay! :)

I'm so happy to know this is still a thing. I'll definitely be watching the forum over the next while.

Re: VBAM status?

I'd love to, if the opinion of someone who's never played any iteration of the rules would be of value. ) Are you using any particular basis for the playtesting, or just the latest posted Galaxies google doc?

VBAM status?

Hi All, I was just reminded of VBAM 2E, and have thought once again about trying to get a solo game going. I am a bit discouraged to see the lack of new activity on the boards recently—I realize this is a niche game, but I hope the project hasn't been abandoned. I'd appreciate reassurance if there i...

Re: Vbam and the blind

Hi, I'd love to try online play, I think. I feel like PBEM is a bit more accessible than a forum, but either approach might work. I don't know about the maps. A big part of making it useable would probably involve putting Braille labels on them, and that's hard. I think I'll see how the textual list...

Re: Vbam and the blind

Thanks for getting in touch. :) I hope the move goes as well as such things can. I'm looking forward to seeing whatever does come out for 2E's solo rules. A hex map probably isn't going to be very helpful for me. Even with numbered hexes it's still a fundamentally visual representation. If I had a B...

Re: Vbam and the blind

I'm looking forward to it. :)

I read that one of the big problems with doing 1E solo is the lack of a ship design system. I am curious what 2E can provide in that regard.

Is their an estimated date for the 2E material? Any chance for play testing? I'd love to hear from the author if possible :)

Re: Vbam and the blind

That sounds very promising indeed. :) I went ahead and purchased the first edition Campaign Moderator's Companion, as that seems to have much of the info on the type of campaign I'm interested in. A quick skim seems to suggest this will be super helpful. I guess where I'm having trouble is figuring ...

Re: Vbam and the blind

Thanks. :) This is encouraging. I swear I had a copy of the first edition rules at some point, but can't remember which site I bought them from. On the subject of other questions which I wonder about, how are non-player empires handled? Another system I'm interested in, StarFire, has fairly elaborat...

Vbam and the blind

Hello, I was wondering how suitable Vbam might be for my situation. I happen to be totally blind, and a fan of 4x style strategy games. I'm unable to play many of these on the computer, but am trying to find a reasonable substitute. I would most likely play solo, if at all possible. The biggest issu...
