Thanks for the link! Just curious if anyone here ever played this game? I remember seeing ads for it, but don't recall seeing it in any comic shops at the time. If I recall correctly it was one of ...

IIRC, the main complaint (from Ship of Riddles, not Frank) about the offset main hold was that the front-left corner (viewed from above) would actually protrude through the main hull.

So, it would seem that there is a pretty serious disconnect between the "ideal" described by the ImpSB and the reality they actually face on the battlefield. How much of that do you think i ...

It's also available as an eBook for Amazon Kindle. I'm reading it now.
How is it?
It's decent. I'm about 3/4 through it, and he's reached the point where he went to work for WotC. It's very much ...

Theoretically, the Imperial Army can do the same thing at multiple levels. Page 109 of the ImpSB mentions Imperial Navy Assault Fleets being built to sustain what's called a 1/4/16/64 Plan, simultane ...

True, but there was always a feel in ANH that the jump from Tatooine to Alderaan didn't take all that long. The Essential Atlas explained it away by having Tatooine be relatively close to a major tra ...

Okay, it seems if you put in a normal hyperdrive multiplier (i.e. "x2") you get an "all zeros" result. Entering just the numerical part of the modifier ("2") gets you a ...

I'd love to see a system that included the systems traveled through on the way there. There's any number of reasons why characters might want to make a stop along the way.

I'm thinking the deployment cycle needs to be addressed, as well. It may not particularly effect how the PCs engage in combat with the Imperial Army out in the field, but it is useful to provide more ...
