Twilight Imperium (Third Edition):: DieStar's TI3rd Houserules By: DieStar
DieStar's TI3rd Houserules.docx (69 KB)
This month our group celebrated a decade of playing Twilight Imperium 3rd edition, a celebration made bittersweet with the announcement of 4th edition. With that, here’s probably the last upload of our group’s houserules.
The goal of these rules is to to make to game more combative and aggressive, while making little changes to existing rules, keeping alterations to existing components minimal, not prolonging the setup, and requiring no new components.

* Endgame – more Objectives, and better chances to achieve Secret Objectives; victory is achieved at 12 or more VPs, allowing players to not only decrease opponents’ amount but to surpass it.
* Assembly - Assembly and Political Cards have been refined to give the active player more agency and facilitate lobbying.
* Combat-Focus - rules for Trade Stations, Artifacts and Mecatol Rex are altered to make them more contested; more opportunities to gain Command Counters.
* Units – Dreadnaught and WarSun slightly reworked to narrow their power gap; capacity rules have been simplified.
* Leaders – completely reworked Leaders setup and abilities.
* The Consolidated Game Setup section is modified and incorporates all changes and variants in these houserules.
* ...and other small changes.

Technical changes: uploaded in editable DOCX format; improved wording in many sections, changed Leaders abilities, added Age of Empire rules.
As always, any feedback will be appreciated. See you in 4th edition!

Twilight Imperium (Third Edition):: Treaties for all Races By: arne_sven
treaties.pdf (304 KB)
Added missing "Treaty Card" on #2 card.
Also made cards 1 mm smaller (both width and height) so they more easily fit into sleeves.
Aug 21, 2017
treaties.pdf (303 KB)
In this pdf you will find Treaty Cards for all 17 Races so you can play with the following variant.

General Treaty Variant:
Use the rules described on page 15 on the Shards of the Throne Rule Book. With the following exceptions:

1. Ignore all references to the Lazax.

2. When activating another player's home system during step 1 of "Forming Alliances", the player takes a Command Counter from his Strategy Allocation area.

In our group we have experienced great reduction in play length due to this variant.

My Thanks to my friend Sam who found this variant (or a version of it) somewhere on the Web. If anyone knows the original source, please post a link to it below.

Twilight Imperium (Third Edition):: Lex Talionis Rules Variant By: Poptart1337
Lex Talionis Rulehack.pdf (1.58 MB)
What is Lex Talionis?

The Lex Talionis Rulehack is a re-write of the core rules that includes a selection of rules variants from the main game, the Shattered Empire, and Shards of the Throne expansions. Lex Talionis, in addition to using some rules variants from the published game, also includes significant rule-hack/homebrew type

Why make up this Rulehack?

Playing Twilight Imperium always felt vaguely unfinished or unsatisfying. With a huge selection of units and an interesting narrative, the game promised epic battles between massive star fleets, with blood-and-iron Machiavellian political machinations in the shadowy background. The game play as written
never really delivered on that promise, even with the addition of two large expansions and a wide array of variants.

This Rulehack seeks to deliver on the promise. Lex Talionis changes the victory conditions, alters the game setup, modifies the political system by altering the Assembly strategy action, and includes a selection from the published variants that fit most seemlessly into the game play. These rules attempt to
strengthen the political side of the game, as well as incentivizing interstellar combat. Additionally, with three rulebooks to flip through, playing a selection of variant rules for Twilight Imperium becomes cumbersome. This Rulehack compiles a selection of variants and includes them seamlessly in the rules, all in one place, to make referencing the variant rules less of a chore. This writeup assumes that the reader is familiar with Twilight Imperium. Much of Lex Talionis is identical text to the three rulebooks, but placed in a different, clearer sequence and with some of the details, particularly the overview details, omitted.

The strength of Twilight Imperium is a good fundamental game system to draw on, as well as the huge number of game components. The two expansions speak to the flexibility of the game and how easy it is to come up with one’s own version of TI.

Twilight Imperium Shattered Ascension rules rewrite RELEASE.pdf (2.80 MB)
I have rewritten the rulebook, integrating Shattered Ascension house rules. I have done this mainly to give Shattered Ascension groups a single rulebook that they can give to new players instead of 4-5 different documents.

I have tried to incorporate all rules from these sources:
• Twilight Imperium 3rd Edition rulebook
• Shattered Empire rulebook
• Shards of the Throne rulebook
• Shattered Ascension rulebook 4.2beta

The rulebook has been written with the assumption of “increased plastic” from SA rules. I sincerely think that it enchances the game. Our group played with increased plastic way before we got a second copy of the game and expansions. You can just use figures of a different color when you run out.

“Twilight Council” is the default political system for SA games.

The alternate and additional game components can be found on the Shattered Ascension website.

CleanTechTree_Variant_1.0.pdf (1.34 MB)
Based upon the great design of a more straight-forward tech tree from BGG user Grund Guter (Zerfukt), this tech tree features a clean structure on a small footprint with both expansions included. Ideally laminated for every player.

Thanks to Zerfukt for his approval and support!
