Two things came in the mail today - a MegaTraveller Referee's Manual and Tomorrow's War. Yay!
I grabbed the MegaTraveller Ref Guide, not because I want to play it, but for its starship building rules. I remember using those rules to design ships was the funnest thing about the game itself. I'm playing Stars Without Number nowadays, and while the abstracted ship building rules are great and simple - they lack some meat. The players have been wondering about their starship, layouts and stuff, so I think this old book will help me. It may also give me some ideas for creating a more in-depth ship building system for SWN itself.
Tomorrow's War was kind of a fluke. I stumbled upon in while on Amazon. I was very fascinated by the description of it. It's more of a hard sci-fi wargame, as opposed to the 40K stuff. It's relatively new, got great reviews, made by Osprey/Ambush Alley, and was only like 23 bucks. I . . . I impulse bought. Yeah. But man, it's in my grubby little hands now and I'm pumped about playing it sometime. PYOO PYOO!
So I got some reading to do. Like I have time. LOL.
