Last week I put out an update on our current efforts to update Solar Starfire to version 6.03
I did not mean to leave out our Facebook followers! So I will summarize:
I sent approximately 1000 individual changes to Dazrand, all embedded in our working document. He is working on integrating those changes into the rules while I go through the remaining pages of change notes that I've kept and identify the changes we are keeping for this update, and the changes that will have ...to go into the next version.
For a more detailed explanation, take a look at my post on the Starfire forum.
We have released the re-published version of Alkeda Dawn!
Alleda Dawn is a supplement for Classic Starfire (3rd edition). It tells the story of the Vestrii before they fled across the galaxy. When the Vestrii first reached out into the stars, they met and warred with two other factions. First they met the Kess, a religious race that built mission fleets that sought to convert all other races to their ways. And second, the J'Rill, a nomadic race that wandered the stars pillagi...ng anyone and anything they found as a means of survival.
Alkeda Dawn requires the 3rd edition Tactical Rules and Imperial Starfire, but contains a number of new technologies unique to this region of space and a modified campaign system designed for quicker play.
You can get it through our Wargame Vault store at http://www.wargamevault.com/product/239283/Alkeda-Dawn
Or as part of the Legacy Starfire Package at http://www.starfiredesign.com/starfire/order/
By request, we've added images of the Ultra Starfire counters and Godsgopher's Classic Starfire counters to our download forum.
If you haven't seen them Godsgopher created custom "hand drawn" counters for most of the Classic Starfire races: Terrans, Orions, Gorm, Ophiuchi, Arachnids, Rigelians, Star Union, and Thebans.
Oblivion is the third Starfire book in the Arduan series, written by Steve White and Charles Gannon!
The eARC for Oblivion is now available through Baen Books! Or you can wait until the book comes out on May 1st!
Starfire fans! The eARC for OBLIVION by STEVE WHITE & CHARLES E. GANNON is here!
STAND AGAINST THE ALIEN INVADER APOCALYP...SE!
The war with the profoundly alien Arduans has ended, and the Arduans have come to call humanity their allies. Most of them—the Arduan warrior caste refuses to accept defeat. Now known as the Kaituni, they are waging a war of extermination against all members of the pan-Sentient Union, human and Arduan alike. What’s more, the Kaituni have an unexpected weapon in their arsenal: the alien Arachnids, once thought driven to extinction. The Kaituni drive the Arachnid fleet ahead of them, inflicting untold damage.
The war has been marked by retreat on the side of the pan-Sentient Union. It seems the best they can do is minimize their losses. But now the Arachnids and the Kaituni are at the doorstep to the Heart Worlds, Sol, and Earth: Alpha Centauri. The odds look bleak. But Admiral Ian Trevayne and Commodore Ossian Wethermere have faced down long odds in the past. It’s time to take a stand, for Earth, for humanity . . . and for the pan-Sentient Union!
The Wolfhound Refit-B carrier is also available as a datagroup!
The Terran Federation Navy Wolfhound-class Refit-B Carrier is now available! The most advanced TFN carrier of the Theban-Terran war, the Wolfhound Refit-B carried 36 fighters and cloak.
Otterman shows the cloaking systems by showing the extra transmitters in the front of the carrier!
The KON Monitor is now available as a datagroup for bulk savings!
Who wouldn't want a couple datagroups of these bad boys?
If you haven't seen it yet, as I am working towards collecting all the changes to update Solar Starfire to the next version... I have an old, unanswered question about cloaks.
I'd like to know what ya'll think.
What did we accomplish last year? What are we planning for the next year?
We've always had old timers email asking what we've been up to for the last decade or so, but we've had more than usual over the last few months.
So I have decided that I should start bringing everyone up to date on what we've done and where we are going on an annual basis....
Even though I'm one of the team doing the work, even I was surprised by the answer...
TFN Wolfhound-class Carrier has been released on Shapeways! With 30 fighters each, the Wolfhound-class carrier was the main carrier used by the Terran Federation Navy during the Theban-Terran War in Crusade.
And we have made the Wolfhound-class available as a datagroup!
We have also released the KON Battleship datagroup!
The TFN Battleship datagroup is now available. The savings in Frosted Ultra Detail - compared to purchasing three individual TFN Battleships - is a little more than 10%!
We are aware that the website and forum are getting "sql server not found" errors and have contacted our provider for an update. It seems to be an intermittant problem and has apparently been so since late morning. We will let you know when it is fixed.
The first Terran Federation Navy carrier miniature is now available!
The TFN Essex-class carrier was the only CV unit in the reserve fleet at the beginning of the Terran-Theban War as detailed in the Classic Starfire supplement (and novel) "Crusade", left over from ISW-3.
