The other week I decided to get out my table and battlemat and place all the ships on it…..the main reason being, my brother was visiting and we were going to chat about the rules and see what we could come up with.
The rule writing went very well, although we did not complete this!
We did however get a chance to test our ship to ship combat, movement and boarding party rules. It did take a few simulations to get this workable.
Still quite a bit to work on including. mining operations/resource gathering, Empire building, colonisation etc. We have Playable races and ones managed largely by the drawing of a card! Rules on diplomacy and making alliances are also under consideration…this is going to be epic.
at the moment work is being done on tokens, stats cards for each ship and i intend to put some decals on the bases with basic ship info.
Not sure how soon the game will be playable but…..we are getting closer to that day!
