Game Setup

Postby Terl Obar » Fri Dec 05, 2008 9:56 pm

In looking at it more closely, I realized the setup threads should be merged. Set-up should proceed as follows:
  1. The UPF gives me the locations of all the Unattached Ships that aren't being attached to SF Nova
  2. The Sathar give me the fleet compositions and locations for the ships that will start the game on the first turn (remember at least 20 ships frigate or larger have to start on the board and no more than half of your capital ships in any one location.)
  3. The UPF will declare whether or not SF Nova will start the game on the board.

At that point we'll start moving ships and fleets.

The unattached ships form the Flying Squadron, currently on patrol in the Zebulon system.

You're the spineless invertabrate, and you're calling me a sub-creature.

What is a sub creature anyway? Is that a creature that lives on a submarine?

C'mon now, this is a period film. Lisping wasn't gay when SF was penned, they were mostly still in the closets back then.

I imagine if SF were penned for the first time today, the Sathar would have hairlip instead...but it would be politically correct hairlip and they would not be dubbed as aliens either, they would simply be formidable entities.

FNN News Flash - Sathar fleets have been spotted in various systems around the Frontier. What will the UPF's response be? Details at 11.

---

Does the UPF want to bring SF Nova onto the board? I believe I know the answer but just want to verify before I do anything.

True that, Jody Dallas didn't lisp.

Still, it's just pre-war trash talk.

'Sides, in all seriousness, would the Sathar even have concepts such as that? Or would it just be the Bert and Ernie thing all over again to even apply what are basically Human tags to a clearly non-Human species....

Naw, they'd still be dubbed as aliens, and still be three times as ugly.

And, they'd hiss...all the bad guys hiss..... :D

The deformed icosahedron spins (actually I use a true icosahedron numbered 0-9 twice that I got out of my Paranoia game) and clatters to a stop on the table. Strike Force Nova is in Kizk'-Kar. The battle lines are drawn. Let the game begin.

I've started a Strategic Movement thread. On each side's turn they will detail the movement orders for each of their fleets and ships. You only need to post changes to orders or a simple "No changes" post to indicate that you want to continue on with the current orders. Keep discussions of tactics and strategies to the discussion threads and only post movement in this thread to keep if from getting too cluttered.

Except for Blofeld (James Bond). Although he had a cat, and cats hiss...

No sweat on the trash talk, I'm eating it up myself :lol: It's all in good clean fun.
