Re: Attack Vector: Starmada (Or, Starmada: Tactical?)

I found my copy of AV:T and had a read through the hopefully-relevant sections of the rules. Here's what I've found: Lasers do less damage as range increases, and those with the shortest range do the most damage. They can be 'downfired' (to make the high-output ones cycle faster) or fired in 'armor ...

Attack Vector: Starmada (Or, Starmada: Tactical?)

I like the 'near future/'real' space combat' feel/style of Attack Vector: Tactical, but the system itself isn't for me. Anyone have any thoughts/suggestions on how to achieve that sort of feel, primarily weapons/defenses-wise, with the SAE rules? As soon as I can find my copy of AV:T (and some free ...

Re: Scratch Built Starmada Fleets

In the first picture, second post, what is that larger 'organic' ship? I know those are Night Brood from Silent Death, I just don't recognize that larger one.

The scratchbuilds are great, btw!

Re: Getting (Back) Into Starmada/Design & Art Query

Then I have to too. Haven't got any Traveller stuff, partly because of cashflow problems (too much out, not enough in, isn't it always the case?) but mainly because I think it was released around the early 90s...? Tigress and Plankwell first appeared (if memory and research serves) in Traveller Sup...

Re: Getting (Back) Into Starmada/Design & Art Query

Are you thinking near-future 'this summer', or near-future 'maybe 2009'? That's something I'd buy print-and-PDF of in a heartbeat! I'm thinking "next month". *slap* PayPal on the barrelhead, sir! :D Just tell me where and when. As for the geek/gearhead cred hits, no-one should worry. I'm ...

Re: Getting (Back) Into Starmada/Design & Art Query

So, after fiddling with High Guard, Power Projection, Full Thrust, Silent Death and Slag!, I find myself again at Starmada. Welcome back! :) It's good to be back. I admit to a bit of intimidation, moving from Full Thrust to Starmada, but I'm in an algebra class anyway. ;) (Interestingly, it's given...

Getting (Back) Into Starmada/Design & Art Query

So, after fiddling with High Guard, Power Projection, Full Thrust, Silent Death and Slag!, I find myself again at Starmada. Which is odd, as I'm normally allergic to hexes. :D (Okay, SD and Slag! are exceptions...) I've got AE and ISS print versions, and I'll probably end up getting the PDF versions...

Drones and fighters have been in since the beginning - or close to it - of SFB; drones were a weapon on the Klingon D6/7 and Kzinti BC, and the Kzinti also had fighters. For the Hydrans, introduced later, fighters are essential, as drones are for the Kzinti. Starmada is so adaptable, why limit its i...

Re: ARES-Variants group

Actually Dan may or may not know what's going on with respect to any of the new stuff. Most of the "blame" for that can probably be sent my way. :wink: And I might even have some additional stuff that didn't get posted to the variants group. Kevin I know that ARES might not be burning up ...

Pacifica, with a slice of lime jammed down it's throat. Dunno, I just like Mexican beers. :)
