Re: News on A Call to Arms: Star Fleet!

Well there does seem to be a whole new game in the offing - for good or ill. I understand some of the suggested changes above - others less so. I think that it should be remembered that the SFU compliance issue already put huge strains on the ACTA system and made many things "work" or in fact not wo...

Re: New player with an Energy Mine question

It is indeed a very powerful weapon when used correctly - even though as a Centauri player it pains me to say that. You do indeed attack every ship in the blast area with the appropriate number of dice. As you say its only a one shot weapon, so it can be an important tactical choice when and when no...

Re: Is ACTA SF a good analog for SFB or FC?

Cloaked ships, after using their special action to "Disengage Cloaking Device!" get hammered with seeking weapons without getting IDF protection from other fellow ships also likewise uncloaking (this is a fleet game after all). And Romulan ships typically have slightly fewer phasers than other race...

Re: Is ACTA SF a good analog for SFB or FC?

The game we have currently is a compromise between old ACTA and SFB requirements. Its not at all perfect and I would agree that is slowly slipping into the murk of oblivion at present..... re the OP: I don't know as I don't play SFB/FC - however I do know that the game rules were massively altered a...

Hey there :)

Yeah its the opposite - The Drones and other seeking weapons don't penterate the shields on a roll of a 6.

Re: BatRep - 8Oct2013

Cool report - the first thing I notice is that the Romulans seem to have decloaked on a turn they lost Iniative - very very bad idea - espeically if you are playing with squadrons!

Re: B5

As I recall AOG made two scales - one of which is exactly the same as the MGP ones. IMO The best paint job for a Narn ship is one with a large bulls eye to help the gallant gunners of the Centauri Republic :) I haven't played for a bit but its my favourite incarnation of the system.

Actually I do think its the kind of spell (and the polar opposite) that fantasy women will kill for, this level of control over whether they risk childbirth or not would I would have thought be highly desired by most - from Noblewomen to prostitutes through to your average farmers wife.

Re: ACTA:SF 2nd Edition?

Previously I would have said - go for it! However this iteration of ACTA is much more complex with two companies involved and ADB understandably extremely careful and protective of their licence and also everything related to the SFU in terms of how it works. You would need to ask both parties - fro...
