Re: Starmada Nova to VBAM 2nd Edition

Second draft of the rules and an example force list attached. Big change is to the VBAM costing and maintenance systems, which should be a little simpler from here. You get an "adjustment" number from the Starmada CR in full increments of 1, 2, 3 etc and that increment moves up the VBAM co...

Starmada Nova to VBAM 2nd Edition

So I've been snowed in for days, and have spent some of my cabin fever energy on this. It's an attempt at a comprehensive way to merge VBAM 2e and Starmada Nova. I'm sure it's not perfect, and I'd really appreciate some outside critiques to continue working on it. I'll generate a force list or two o...

Re: SNE Flotillas

No need for it to be a riposte, we're working together, not competing :D You're right that my general values doesn't match some of your flotillas from supplements - I wasn't aiming for backwards compatibility. I don't think that's an essential part of the proposed special rules anyway, though, so I'...

Re: SNE Flotillas

Tried to put these discussions into a simple-to-read, organized form in case Dan ever wants to put them in something like a Starmada Nova Rules Compendium. How to create and use flotillas in one page, plus a few sample flotillas to give people an idea of the diversity that's possible. Thanks again t...

Martian Colonial Navy: Starmada Nova Faction

So after working on two pre existing IPs to get a better feel for the Starmada ship building system, and playing a couple of test rounds, I decided to start setting off on my own to create some new factions. The Martian Colonial Navy is graphically themed and weapon-themed, and designed to be a mid-...

Re: SNE Flotillas

Hmm, I agree. But a rule which says 'always take weapons damage, never shield or engines' isn't a totally 'fair' tradeoff - a ship could, if rolling damage checks, take damage in several at once. It also begs the question of whether a flotilla with one 'weapons bank' could be in bad shape under this...

Re: SNE Flotillas

I know this is a bit of a necro, but have you ever figured out a good way to simulate flotillas not losing their thrust rating when they make a damage check? It seems like they should lose firepower when they lose a 'hull point', but not thrust - since the individual ships constituting the flotilla ...

Re: Starmada Star Wars!

Here are the Imperial ships! Since my theme here is to use a limited number of weapons and special qualities to make the Star Wars ships an easy introduction to the Starmada system, it was a little tricky to make them distinct from the Rebel ships, but I think they'll play somewhat differently, espe...

Re: Starmada Star Wars!

Here's another draft. I'm starting to conceive of this Star Wars set as a quick, simple way to introduce people to Starmada - no special rules, twists, or modifications. Few of the weapons use complex rules (just a few Piercing, Guided, and a couple of Seekers), and there will be relatively few ship...

Re: Yaay, beer!

I love my state: http://virginiabreweries.com/map Though we're not one of the top brewing states (those honors go to the hipster havens like Oregon or states that are just plain huge like California), we're booming and have more state and local breweries than you can shake a stick at. If you're ever...
