Cross-posting my message from the Recruiting Station forum, as it seems likely folks here might be interested. FWIW, I currently have three people interested! - JFA

Quote:
I'm contemplating running a game of Fifth Frontier War via PBEM and trying to guage interest. The game would be played in a limited-intelligence, limited communication mode, with the players taking the roles of Supreme Commanders of the four powers (Zhodani, Imperial, Sword Worlds and Vargr) and if enough are interested, fleet commanders. No direct communication between players unless they're in the same system, and I'm working up rules for fleet couriers. Still trying to decide exactly how to handle combat.

Ideally, if this takes off, turns would run initially every 2 weeks, and speed up once folks get into the groove.

Obviously you'll need to have access to a copy of the game.

If interested, post here or send me a private message!

John

Gents,

Your interest has been noted and an e-mail with further information will be arriving shortly! I'm sending it BCC to help preserve the "limited intelligence, limited communications" aspects of the game.

John

We've got 13 players and war planning is underway! Still room for a few "At Start" players, and definitely room for commanders of the reinforcements soon.

The FFW PBEM is cranking along. We're just getting into Turn 2 (game date 194-1107) and things are starting to get interesting. There will be slots opening up for commanders of the reinforcing fleets if anyone's interested!

Just a quick request - that once the game is over the players and referee all post their memoirs de guerre in this forum. That way those of us who didn't get to play the game can get to experience the fun, and maybe learn a few tips for future games we might want to play ourselves...

Paul

Paul,

Fear not! Tod Glenn has graciously given us some web space on Traveller Central. Periodic TNS-style reports will start showing up in a few weeks as news of events propagates across the Marches, and I'm keeping a running commentary as each turn passes. If the players choose to create their own, we can put them or links to them at that site.

John

Drat. Came to the boards too late, I see I would have loved to have gotten in on this PBEM. 5FW is a great game. If another starts up, keep me in mind?
