Look forward to this. IMO much small scale sic-fi stuff is the wild west in space anyway. :)

Will there be support for both 'extreme development/science' (i.e. very powerful deadly/protection stuff), post apocalypse (hunting for goodies with limited resources)  and 'space magic' options (40k psych /star wars force type stuff)?

Or will you specify one of the settings?

Wild West in Space?  That reminds me of Outland!

All,
my hope is these will be a nice toolkit for you to craft your own vision of what SciFi looks like.
The rules allows you to play a small scale wargame in the far flung future, a galaxy, far, far away, a grim, dark future 40,000 years from now, or a certain Red Planet where swords and rayguns reign supreme. Whatever YOU think Sci-Fi looks like, from your favorite Space Opera to gritty Pulp epic.

This is not a theoretical  recreation of future combat, but rather a Hollywood take on the genre in question.

It is a great way to spend an hour or two having fun with your friends playing with space men.

The question now is whether I provide a supplement (a codex if you will) with a small selection of sample troops from each genre and a scenario for each or try to cram them into the rulebook. Right now I'm leaning towards a supplement that would be "unlocked" as part of the Kickstarter.

More towards what I hope to encompass: one player may be running d12 rolling Genetically Enhanced Supersoldiers vs 3 other players with grunts. or an Alamo/last stronghold about to be overrun by Bugs.

We'll have rules for powers wielded by the Templars of the Golden Light as well as The Templars of the Void. Use your laser sword to send a blaster shot right back them!

We game Thursday nights, so watch Friday for a second play test on the blog. This time it's SF things like robots and space armor.

Love it!  I'll definitely back a Kickstarter project for this.  I hope to get a game in at RECRUITS too!

I'll be at Recruits. I'll also be at Twister Con in OKC in March. Hoping that will be my kick of date for the Kickstarter.

Quit teasing us!  We want it now.  I'd put in one of those "shut up and take my money" things, but you've seen them all by now.

I thought the Grandmaster of the Temple of the Infinite Void would be a good King of Spades.
