Re: Gorn Fleet - Comments Welcomed

My preference would be neither but instead one of the original suggestions such as 4+ save against critical hits. In the original SFB Gorns had a lot Central Hull, not just Front and Rear, now it has been a long time, but the effect of this is with two ships that have received equal damage. the Gorn...

Re: How much fun is ACTA:SF?

Sigh

The more I read the more I want to buy this game.

ACTA is clearly designed for larger scale actions. My own preference would be for squadron size actions, with the occasional large lfeet and the occasional one on one.

Can any one comment on how the game handles the different scaling?

Thanks

I don't think it will matter in the long run. Most GM's will take bit's and pieces from each of the game systems that suit their game. Have a look at Da Bosses post regarding his Elric system! It's a complete mish-mash (I mean that in a nice way) of various iterations of Stormbringer and RQ - but i...

Over the last few months I have purchased all the RQII available from rpg drive thru and I doubt I will be buying core rule books from anyone. What I want would be supplements and background material, regardless of who produces it. If both systems are going to be not only simiar to each other but wi...

If I understood this correctly, there would be no witchers in the party but rather other oddities... This could work but for how long? I mean how many different parties could be done with this idea without it resembling a freak circus? :D Having said that, the world of the books is facinating, grim...

Getting back to the original question. I think there is one inheritent problem with this setting, namely witchers. Even if you set the game earlier era when there were many more witchers than at the time of Geralt they mostly operate alone and are pretty powerful. So, what the PCs would be? If not ...

Encounters with the inquisition (in Deus Vult) have been a little unsettling. I think dark covers it. But the Templars take the award for brooding. I'm not a user of chain swords. But don't find them any more of an issue than the likelihood of being hit by an orc or, indeed, a fireball. It strieks ...

Low-level magic? Middle ages? That's Deus Vult. A setting I really recommend. It fits the lethality of Wayfarer's combat rules, making it ideal for any gritty game world. The campaign I'm currently running is the most fun I've had RPing in a good while. :) I have purchased all the Deus Vult stuff. ...

How about the Witcher series as a basis for a world?

Low level magic, similar to Earth in the Middle Ages. Has loads of potential and lots of fun.

Dumb question

Have just purchased the rules, reading how to play and drooling over the ships. The rule for AP. Now maybe I am a tad slow but does the rule play as a) You roll all hits and add +1 to the total. In effect you gain an additional hit. b) You roll all the hits and each dice has +1. You tend to penetrat...

Thanks guys. I have just noticed you can purchase the rules online as pdf, so I am printing them off now. Just need to tell my wife :lol:

Do they make enough model types for the game. ie, are there gaps in the model series?

What about B5 Fllet action? Can you still purchase their models?
