Re: Gunboat question for GBa (SL6 GB)

Most of my players have used CT or CTf hulls to run out and meet the Gunboats. This usually means the gunboats wait until the main fleet is in range to focus on killing the escorts before the gunboats go in. For people that are interested, I did do some experiments where I let small craft and ships ...

Re: Useless Weapons

Just for fun I tried one game where I only used Missiles, sprint missiles and x-ray lasers. G generally doesn't perform as well as other SRW. The main reason for G is so you can get fG for small craft. Gc has some potential but the early G branch is tough. I do agree that K is a hard weapon to use. ...

Re: Starfire New Empires v. Starfire III: Empires

Oy. No wonder I forgot. My apologies... Mind if I borrow heavily? ;) Please borrow away. I post things here so they get used. This system was tested in at least 3 campaigns. Better with it in a forum as it usually can be found unlike the mailing list that was before where stuff could get lost if pe...

Re: PBEM game?

Which rule set? I recommend against home rules but deciding on which optional rules are good. Unless you have a home rule around making ships more expensive so fleets don't get out of hand. I would check out the Vassel modules which are free and a bit lighter weight than Tabletop sim which goes too ...

Re: Starfire New Empires v. Starfire III: Empires

I found two different solutions to the monetary issues of Starfire. By accident when you start empires at a higher EL and then use a system I wrote up for bidding on different technologies, the cost of technology and even ship systems are so much higher that players have smaller fleets. We often st...

Re: General thoughts on rules

The board game Eclipse has a pretty good system for building ships (there are only 4 ship types though). Building a game like that or adapting the eclipse board game to Starfire is possible. Between an Ascendancy type game with systems connected by warp points and a Eclipse tech / ship building syst...
