pretty much how I play it.. unless I say my ship is boresighting then its not.. I know other people play it other ways.. we have had it where 1 adrift ship happens to boresight a second adrift ship boresight is purely that single line straight ahead(or behind) so if you are off by a few degrees then...

havent they admitted somewhere that they already have homegrown rules for playing starwars?

I seem to recall something about it and that it worked really well.. especially with the lack of beams

IMO there is a large to do liste for Mongoose to make a 3rd Edition worth. - skip PL Systems - balance criticals - better beam system - ini sink problem - make larger ships worth - improve the overall balance of ships ..... theres nothing wrong with the beam system... they just happen to be super w...

problem with MOO was ships were so flexible, you made whatever you want as long as you had tech for it as for Cloak I believe the arms race is the key. one always has to keep making it better... we see in the tribble DS9 episode where defiant was able to drop out of cloak transport and reengage betw...

TTT!!!

so I know it was mentioned before but I thought I would bring it up in its own thread.. TTT.. I like it but we have run into one problem Ship A declares TTT on target B, and boresights C B being a juicer target then C it seems kind of contradictory that if after having declared TTT and failing or B ...

I like it although one thing I kind of hate is being allowed to pick exactl which crit to stop, your guys arent going to know all the time where they will be hit I would be happier with some randomness, say roll first die, decide whether to stop roll second die, that way you would know what level of...

But with the removal of the really short range guns (for AF) there isn't even a point blank range to worry about, eight is it. Unless your up against a pretty suicidal Tigara with its 4" weaponry even then the GQuans guns dont really have anything to write home about the Tigara has spd 12-2/45 whic...

I always understood it as being that the Admiral must be placed on the biggest ship when initially bought. Otherwise it wouldn't include the 5RR points for transfering during campaign. Admirals cost 1 Battle point in campaign games no matter how big your biggest ship is, it then must be placed on y...

The G'Quan has been used a lot as well. CBD was frequently never really considered a useful option at the time (although it probably should have been given the damage output from the secondaries). I'd like to see some more ability put into one of the G'Quans (or the rest of the Ships of the Line ty...

The current incarnation simply begs to be sent out of the rear/flank arcs of ships to snipe where there is absolutely no possibility of return fire. That would be fine for a "made for the game" ship, but this is the most iconic ship in the B5 universe and therefore the game has a duty to make it be...

So as I see it, original problem: in higher PL games ie.Raid+, people are using single 2fers as ini sinks Why are you limiting this to raid+ games? People are using them as initiative sinks even in patrol PL games. I see no reason why any rule on moving ships together shouldn't apply to games of al...

I dislike the idea of2flers since the publishing of 2nd Ed. the Sho'Kos/Kov is already worth another races' 1 point Patrol ship.
