New Co-Op X-Wing Campaign

The thing X-Wing lacked from day one was a good campaign system. Months ago I decided to make my own campaign in the form of a small pdf document. I created a chat with some local players to have them read it over as I wanted feedback before I threw it up on db416.

During that chat Josh Derksen (Armorgear7) had some great ideas, and he had a unique slant on how a campaign system should work with the core mechanic being an A.I. Overlord, whereas I was looking at a more conventional human GM. Continue reading New Co-Op X-Wing Campaign

In Star Wars Armada, Admiral Motti must have the strangest game effect to date as he boosts the hull value of all ships in his force. What’s so strange about that you ask? Well, when Motti’s ship is destroyed his card is flipped over and his commander effect no longer applies. That means if there were Imperial ships down to the one or two extra hull that Motti gave them, they would immediately blow up as those “magical Motti” hull points disappear. In essence, all ships have extra health only while he lives.

How can we explain this? Well, I think I have an answer. Continue reading The Great Admiral Motti in Star Wars: Armada
