@ djclark: Heh. That would be me. I had a bad game against you *ages* ago and in a way of assuaging my own fragile ego, made a story of how the fates had cursed me and that *you* were my nemesis. In truth I had a bad game, a few unlucky rolls and I disagreed with a some of the rules calls at the tim...

Swarms are effective because to chose a ship that is roughly 50% better you pass up the chance for two of the lesser kind. e.g. The Raid ship is 1.5 times as good as Skirmish but you get 2 Skirmish Ships for the same price! ...and this works all the way down. How about allowing splitting but removin...

It does have one quality I actually like. It's a deterrant. When not ALL of your ships have stealth then the opponent (well at least me) is more likely to go for the non-stealth ship that has a definite chance of being able to roll attack dice. Of course if you're fighting boneheads that really isn'...

Or they may apear in the S+P after that re-re revised :wink: Don't be silly. Things only appear in S&P after being extensively play tested.

Some general tips, and these are my preferences so feel free to disagree!... * Give everyone, as much as possible, reasonably balanced choices with a roughly equal number of ships (and not too few either or one lucky crit could ruin the game). * Don't use too many ships on other side (i.e. no more t...

Maybe General Hash will be a little more humble now. Why do you say this when you know I shall hunt you down and make you suffer for it?! Do you think I would really give up my advantage?

Battle Report (v. short but lots of pics) - Vree vs. Drakh

Burger and I are in training for the coming Mongoose tournament (1 Battle Choice, 1 Skirmish Choice). We chose Vree and Drakh respectively. Although the scenarios are not revealed, we decided to duke it out mano a mano style with random terrain...he got a dust cloud to hide in. I got nothing to hide...

I sort of wondered why the ancients, some of whom are younger than the shadows, can completely ignore stealth. It doesn't make much sense that EITHER Shadows or Vorlons would have any problems against the stealth systems of younger races. However in terms of game balance, both Shadows and Vorlons h...

The issue with the same refits to both sides is that all refits are not equal value with the ships they are put on. Example is the first interceptor on a ship that already has dodge say is huge, as layered defenses works out to very small numbers of AD making it. Adding a 1 AD laser to another ship...

Well for one off games I actually don't see it as a problem at all anyway as long as you offer the same refits to both sides I actually dont see the need to boost anythings PL or victory points etc, neither side needs to pay for it since your giving the same boost to both sides.

Ship Customisation - a bit like Admirals...

Ok so was reading another thread on the Grey Council Sharlin and there was a point raised about making it "better" at the same Priority Level but awarding more Victory Points if it was destroyed/crippled etc. It seemed a bit complicated to me but it sparked off an idea...what if you *could* customis...

The Grey Council is really mostly internal matters, isn't it? And, let's not forget how often leaders are killed in Babylon 5. Cartagia, Clark (By Suicide, but still.), the Kahri (Sp?), etc. If I were a leader, I'd want a little extra defense on my vehicle. >_> The Sharlin is already the pinnacle o...
