Two new VBAM campaigns will be starting and are looking for players. The first, based on the Tuffley-verse made popular by Full Thrust, may be found here: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/vbam_tuffleyverse/
The second is an actual playtest for a new wargame oriented campaign and will be moderated by Rainer Graber. There is one catch. Unlike the open campaign above this will require a NDA for VBAM Games, Inc. since it will be published when completed. VBAM Games has offered to give you one electronic copy of their product for assisting Rainer with this playtest.
-) Movement is done on a intra-system hex map
-) Low tech warfare where detection is important (based on the advent of carrier warfare in space)
-) Somewhat more realistic build times
-) Different fighter damage system
-) New Tech system
-) Convoy rules for intra-system supply, troop transport, census movement, etc. and many things more.
We will need about 2 - 4 players per side. The set-up is a bit like the Stars Divided campaign so you will have to jointly manage your faction's economy. The campaign itself is a bit more wargame-ish than usual though most of the extra work is done by the CM. Turns will be run weekly
though in the beginning you will get as much time as you need to read through the rules (and hopefully come up with ways to improve them).
Please contact Rainer directly (r.graber -at- aon.at) if you are interested.
