I just downloaded this.

it looks like that something unique.. the only game of its type.. a flexible age of sail campaign game with that crucial detail.. a abstract resolution system when you can play out all the combats each turn any system that can provide richness without overwhelming the players AND the GM is a winner.. this looks like it.

NPC fleet management looks good. randoms are fun but I think I'll add in a few home-brew ones as well.

there is an Indian and European campaign included and a free carribbean campaign for download; but we will play the included 5 player generic campaign.

weŕe going to use langtons Napoleonic naval fast play for resolution but you could us any system really not just the sister game fire as she bears.

PS thanks for this comp.. hope I have some luck.. I have a great idea for an Imperium avatar/animated gif youll just have to vote for me to find out!

Well, I'm afraid it'll have to wait. Whatever it was, I'm sure it was better than my plan to get out of this by pretending to be mad. I mean, who would have noticed another madman round here?

Quasi War, 1798-1800

What Happened: After years of French privateering, America fought an undeclared naval war, which the French essentially won.

Consequences: The effect of the war was mostly political, as it caused a split in the Federalist party between the aggressive Alexander Hamilton and John Adams, who opposed out right war. The fear of Hamilton gaining influence from a formal war with France helped fuel the rise of Francophile Thomas Jefferson; leading to the demise of the Federalists. For the navy it stood among the lowest points of its' history.


Battle between the Delaware and the French privateer Croyable:

The game is still the same (Fire As She Bears! Second Edition), but the "Victory by any means" edition adds to the tactical miniatures game some interesting campaign rules.
