Re: General thoughts on rules

The board game Eclipse has a pretty good system for building ships (there are only 4 ship types though). Building a game like that or adapting the eclipse board game to Starfire is possible. Between an Ascendancy type game with systems connected by warp points and a Eclipse tech / ship building syst...

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. We often sta...

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...

Re: If you could have whatever new product you wanted...

Hm. Thinking about this, I've never had an issue with the tactical games in our campaigns because we used Vassal and muddled along with it.
