Who would like to try an experiment?

Postby Cralis on Tue 10 May 2016 11:02

I have a convergence of situations that I think can be turned into a neat little experiment. We want more QSR scenarios. I need to practice writing. So...

...if I were to create scenarios once or twice a week for the QSR rules, who would be interested in doing the scenario and reporting the results. Upon which I will write a story to describe the results along with the next scenario.

Who's interested?

Personally, I'd love to do this, only two issues are that first I don't know if I will have time and second I would likely have to play them against myself.

Ditto. I'm currently working 6/12s in a refueling outage. So frustrating....

I'm game, but I'm another one of those who would have to play against themselves. And as others have said, I'm not sure I'll always be able to find the time to play through a scenario.

But I'm a newbie, so I guess I'm a good tester for this :)

Well alrighty :)

Truth is, unless I can convince my daughter to play again, I'll be doing both sides too...

Well... I was expecting more people to respond to this. I see a bunch of people viewed this topic. So now I'm curious what would attract interest?

I'm interested, I just don't have too much time to actually do the tests!

Well, I could probably cram one a month in, mebbie.... :|

I'm interested. I'd probably have time for one a week or every other week.

Just somehow there seems to be a repeating story here. In any case, playable scenarios sound very good for introducing people to the game.
Starting out with the QSR rules seems good, however I wonder if it might not be useful to eventually move on, and build scenarios that incorporate more and more advanced concepts, of course then requiring the full ruleset that you end up with a playable tutorial series where you gently can introduce XO racks, tractors, precision weapons, capital weapons, armed smallcraft, armed AP, a landing scenario to help us learn the new invasion rules, a test of Zc vs Z.
Of course the two things don't have to be mutually exclusive, but I guess one series is enough to handle for now.
