[Can't Resist]

Somewhere inside Tac's mind:

"What, you're getting bored of Halifax, and want to try getting blockaded in 3D? Sure I'm up for that, let me go grab my Star Destroyers and give you a taste of real firepower!"

[End Shameless Irresistible Plug]

hmmmm, I'm up for it, if you want to. The HRE game isn't taking up as much of my time as I thought, and I'm kind of secondary in the WWII ones, so the WWI game and a Civil war one offsite are the only 2 I've got that are really time consuming. And I've always loved space warfare.....but I'll warn you I'm probably going to be doing some HREish type posts, because I'm a former uber-dork sci-fi-er.......

I'm a sucker for space-naval goodness.

Not certain ACG is the right place to float something as blatantly a-historical (or I'd have dusted off my ruleset over a year ago) but definitely onboard, wherever it is.

The magnitude of my role is extremely dependent on timing though - still battering my head against writers block on a daily basis :/

Which theme did you have in mind?

It won't be starting for a while yet (as Koingerdammerung), I was thinking something "Star Cluster" size, ten or so stars with half a dozen or so planets each.

if thats too large scale (and perhaps it is) maybe a space brothers in arms kind of thing, every player commands some form of ship or ship group on an exodus of some sort.

Im happy to GM yet another game, as I will have thousands of hours opening up soon, I'll just have to make up a ruleset from scratch .

you guys just tell me what you want and I'll start working on what we will do, anything with ships kilometers long is fine by me

In my ruleset (helpfully entitled Exodus) one of the most lovingly detailed aspects of the rules is damage/repair. Not only can damage be dealt to the ship's structure, certain operational damage can be dealt - anything from shutting down internal ship-communications to the 'golden BB' that cracks the ship's reactor and blows her sky-high.

I'd be extremely interested in working with you on getting things set up, though I'd doubtlessly not actually have the time to run this on top of BiA.

any chance of a PERFECTLY LEGAL copy of those rules coming my way via Email?

It would save mountains of time.

Given I wrote them, legality isn't much of an issue

They're a fairly light dX system, will see if I can dig them up when I get home.

If we're doing much in the way of campaigning, how do you want to do FTL travel in Dashyverse? Point-to-point jumps? Hyperspace? Dimension-shift drive or slingshot? Grav-sails?

Why not start with a simple 'old school' set like GDW's Traveller? Already worked out in detail....

Must play. Must see human entrails sacrificed on the pile of other human entrails. Must change battery on vocoder because I am typing this in a monotone, with consistent word and syllable pronunciation.
