Clarification

Approved files will not register here automatically, this have to be done manual. Feel free to Edit this Wiki yourself, but please post only files that are finished and hosted on BGG. If you are unsure how to add you file here, then ask kindly a User from the History of this Wiki to help you out.

Basic additions to the game are additional contents of already-existing items in the game (sectors, ships, etc.). They do not need new rules and naturally blend into the game.

Advanced modifications of the game are more complex expansions that need new rules: big expansions, system modifications or new concepts, and total conversions.

Modding Templates are files which include original graphics that will help you creating your own expansion as well as modifications. They require programs as Adobe Suite / GIMP and the skills to use it.

28 new titles and an example of new rule for using them.
Some players are overwhelmed by the sandbox system. The lack of objectives was the main reproach my players had against the game. Titles were great but there were only 18. Now there are nearly 50!

Since I had a lot of fun with WoW: Legion, I considered implementing this in Xia. So here we have Azeroth and Argus Sector with Sargerite Keystone as shortcut, Relicts as new Outfits as well as Fel Fire as new Type of Damage, also some Explore Tokens. Rules in file page.
