Noob question on survival rolls (character creation)

Hey folks I am going through the character creation section in the Characters & Combat book. The format for a survival roll is (STAT) and a #+ for example END 7+ What does this mean? I am guessing that this is easier than a standard check and we use the DM based on the value of the characters Endura...

Re: [ACTA:SF HUMOR] To help lighten up the mood here...

Tribble Transport Device: Developed by an enterprising Orion scientist, it can be used against the Federation or Klingons. It requires a transport action, and is beamed onboard the target ship, in place of Marines. If used against the Federation, the crew is treated as 2 levels below normal as the ...

Re: Phaser-G Kill Zone discussion

I find the current trend for this debate interesting. I recall the hub-bub over drones. "OP because of their LONG range, because you cannot close the distance in this game, etc..." Now it's "Phaser-G's OP" because it is so easy to get into PB range with these... So apparently it is too hard to stay ...

Re: What play aids are people using?

Being a former collectible card game addict, I amassed a pile of glass cast-offs. I used one color for move, another for fire. Start turn by placing tokens next to each. Remove each after each action. Simple. Started making ship cards with Open Office, but I have already seen several sets by other p...

Re: why have the Kizinti been neutered?

I played all factions in SFB and SFCTA.

I have played against Kzinti, under the original "OMG OP" drone rules and slaughtered them.

I don't find drones excessive or worthless at the moment.

[SFCTA] So...where do I buy the minis? :)

I bought the book as soon as my local brick and mortar carried it. But they have not been able to get the minis in stock, ever. Google only has links to ebay. Is this a Mongoose-store only product? If no, anyone have a linky please to an online store (preferably on my side of the pond?) :mrgreen: Th...

Re: Kzinti on the viewer scope

Hang On! You said "Beautiful Kzinti Ships". Words that should never go together. They all look like squashed cats with bubble heads. (said from my Cloaked Romulan SparrowHawk). In a universe where apparently Kzinti starship architects are limited with CAD programs with lower than 8 bit graphics. Li...

...and thus, after Grand Admiral Thar saw how Federation propogandists had cast a dire insult in their 'suitable for public assimilation' potrayal of their proud warrior species, he knew there was only one way such a challenge could be answered. The next day the entire 1st-6th Kzinti fleets invaded...

Re: Photon Torpedos

Actually in defense of the OP I find photons difficult to use. My favorite race are the kitty cats but I almost always play the Feds because no one else wants to. They are a iconic race faction and everyone else like to pound on them. Also, with regards to empirical evidence, I roll consistently bel...

Re: Kzinti & Drones - Input Welcomed

I have used Kzinti a few times.
vs. feds (he fielded OWDs).
vs. Roms (cloaked most of the game).
vs. Klingons (ADD and drones of their own.)

Not terribly effective each game (the Klingons didn't lose their ADD until turn 6). But I think they are okay. And seeking with range 36 is amazing.

No. They don't.
Wow. I really have hit J. C. with a big stick. First he says centerlining isn't legal and now drones are end phase. I thought having a game with a playtester was a good idea :mrgreen:

Re: Which ships don't you use, and why?

Overall the one ship that seems to be a consensus on 'not worth it at that price' is the Fed CA which is a real problem in that it, along with the D6/D7 are THE signature ships for the game and in reality, the whole Trek thing. Even compared to a D7, the basic CA, between poor handling (Turn 6)and ...
