(Commercial) Stargrave: Bold Endeavour
« on: August 25, 2023, 01:17:27 PM »
New supplement due end of October

Up for pre-order on Amazon, but no doubt Nick will be doing something.

Not sure what figures it's adding, but an aliens box set would be nice

Quote
Just beyond the rim of what was once 'civilized space' lies the vast, colourful expanse of the Crokoan Nebula. Seeking their fortunes, bold independent crews press deep into this largely unexplored sector. But the Ravaged Galaxy is a dangerous place, and the threats that crews face are not limited to those found on a planet's surface. In fact, more independent crews meet their ends in the dark void of space than are wiped out in gunfights. Black holes, asteroid fields, and even the legendary space kraken can all destroy a ship and its crew. It takes a deft hand on the controls, a sharp eye on navigation, and a bit of wizardry with the engines to fly between the stars.

This supplement for­ Stargrave focuses on the ships that serve as the crews' transports, strategic headquarters, and homes, including new upgrades, a damage system, and rules for crew assignments such as piloting, gunnery, and navigation. New powers, soldiers, technology, and backgrounds for captains and first mates help reinforce crews, while rules for space encounters - dangerous, interesting, and potentially profitable incidents - and five new scenarios bring them face to face with strange alien species and other terrifying dangers in weird and wonderful locations, from unexplored planets to the depths of space

Are we talking ship-to-ship battles and dog fights, or is that wishful thinking?

That's a very good question, but I couldn't find anything else other than that statement :(

It is a bit vague, and does leave itself open to a lot of possibilities. However, ship to ship battles would be a heck of a departure from the current game, and a pretty risky thing for the author to try.

Hopefully more information will come out closer to the release date.

It seems more likely that the spaceship additions would be a system like what is in the recent Frostgrave supplement (Into the Wildlands), where the crew/ party is able to spend wealth accumulated in games to buy features on the “ship”, which give advantages in the campaign, such as recovering from damage between games, eland similar. As mentioned above, a ship vs ship add on would be a big departure from the existing game. I could be completely wrong, of course!

It is not a full ship vs ship combat system. It's more like an pre/post-game encounter system, where who you've got manning various positions on the ship helps determine how it plays out.

Thanks for confirming, sounds interesting (and a lot less extra work than what I was thinking  :D)

That does sound interesting. A bit different.

Sounds good. Looking forward to it.
