Almost ready for release is the latest supplement for Stars & Lasers, “These are the voyages…”
This next expansion for the game is all about Captain and Crew skills and experience, it will enable you to give your spaceships an identity which will allow you to track your ships crews as they grow with skills and experience as they battle against their enemies.
These simple rules have been written to try and provide a basic framework for allowing players to use skills and experience in their games of Stars & Lasers.
And as they gain experience, they will be able to have more of an impact on the battles as they unfold, also as your Captains and commanding officers gain more experience, they will learn specific skills that will aid them in their battles.
Skills like –
Give me all power to weapons!
Emergency power to the shields!
Evasive Manoeuvre Alpha!
But of course, as your ships take damage during your battles and the hull is damaged and bulkheads are breached crew and officers will sadly perish, this will inevitably affect the crews experience as these crew and officers are replaced with fresh crew members after the battle.
Also if you should lose your ships during battle then there is the possibility that all the crew will be lost as well, but if any are rescued and survive then there experience would be very useful on their new assigned ships.
These rules will allow players to use the same ships and crews over and over again in their games of Stars & Lasers.
I am doing the final setting out and proof reading at the moment and hope to have this supplement ready for free download very soon.
