Re: Starfire New Empires v. Starfire III: Empires

Oy. No wonder I forgot. My apologies... Mind if I borrow heavily? ;) Please borrow away. I post things here so they get used. This system was tested in at least 3 campaigns. Better with it in a forum as it usually can be found unlike the mailing list that was before where stuff could get lost if pe...

Re: PBEM game?

Which rule set? I recommend against home rules but deciding on which optional rules are good. Unless you have a home rule around making ships more expensive so fleets don't get out of hand. I would check out the Vassel modules which are free and a bit lighter weight than Tabletop sim which goes too ...

Re: Starfire New Empires v. Starfire III: Empires

I found two different solutions to the monetary issues of Starfire. By accident when you start empires at a higher EL and then use a system I wrote up for bidding on different technologies, the cost of technology and even ship systems are so much higher that players have smaller fleets.

Re: Wealth, what is it. A TOaST Thread.

Since this is the in the Starfire section, I'm going to keep looking at wealth as the abstraction from the game and resist defining it by in concrete examples. Weath is the ability to change the state of the actor using it. No matter what the actual physical form, game wealth is how the player decid...
