Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
[Armada|PBP] Game 1: Rift Encounter - Looking for Players
Well, okay, we're not going for anything quite that big ... Plus they haven't released the Executor ... yet ...
I'm looking to referee a play-by-post game of SW: Armada. I'm looking for up to 4 players, though I'll run for 2 if we don't get enough interest. Each player should build a 200-point fleet, following normal fleet construction rules - one flagship, one commander, no more than 67 points of fighters, no more than one of a uniquely-named card for each side - except that, for our first trip out, we won't be using an objective. That'll probably change if this is popular enough for subsequent rounds.
Normally, there is a lot of flexibility involved in Armada's movement, which would make it difficult to run a non-real-time game / PBP. To adjust for that, players will instead give general maneuvering directions, and indicate whether or not they're cool with running into things; I'll then move the ships to match the desired movement as closely as possible. As an example, a movement command for a ship might be, "Turn to port as hard as possible, but don't run into my Corvette," or for a fighter, "Move up-to speed 3 towards Cruiser A, but stop if I reach engagement range with an enemy fighter." Teams will decide amongst themselves what their activation order is.
