Campaign Playtest 1 notes
« on: May 10, 2011, 02:52:17 PM »
To avoid cluttering up Alan's post with comments, I made this.

One thing Alan is running into that is somewhat alleviated in v2 is the cash situation. I created a system about half the size of Alan's Sol start, and it's got around twice the income.

Obviously the new version is very different to the old one for system generation and start up conditions. However, I can only play with what I've got. I've alleviated the cash problem by paying for ship construction monthly although this will probably cause me problems later on. By then I'll have explored my "universe" so it might not matter. On the other hand, I might force an NPR onto a planet just to make things interesting. The old rules have very little information as to how to set up a new race so I'll have to play it by ear.

I'm starting to think I might have been better to build 3 in system frighters with FTL drives so I could build up Sol's income much more quickly. By the time I built the first exploration ship, I might have had enough cash to support on going operations. I could then refit the freighters with FTL drives and start moving population to other star systems. Hindsight is a wonderful thing.

The v2 rules have more detailed information on NPRs being there.

One thing I've been meaning to do is add in astrographic terrain features, such as hiding behind the moon, in asteroid belts. One thing I had posted somewhere was EMP "clouds" from explosions.

Glad about the hiding behind moons statement - see latest campaign update.
