I asked about a possible variant of F&E with research/tech and got the Early Beginnings variant recommended in this thread. Does anybody have the rules and materials of the variant or know where I could find it? My google-fu is not enough and I can only find references to Early Beginnings, but not the thing itself.
I'm also interested in any other possible 4X variants of F&E, if they exist.
I'm also asking here because it's difficult to get an account on both the ADB forum and that forum.
