Default Pocket Empires...Wow, it's Like ATU in a Can!

Been reading my new T4 CD on a time-available basis. I'm loving Pocket Empires. I haven't gotten down to crunching numbers on the provided mechanics, yet, but conceptually I'm enjoying what it's got as a basis for simplifying the abstraction of an ATU,

-Mark

Pocket Empires and Imperial Squadrons are possibly the two best books in the whole of the T4 line.

PE is amongst the best books in any edition.

This book alone makes the entire T4 CD worth buying. Easily.

I'll have to go have a look at Imperial Squadrons, as soon as I can get myself away from PE.

I've got some old JavaScript that does some of the number crunching:

Sweet, thanks!

I'll take advantage of it.

Here's a solo game I played a couple of years back. Its got some errata notes in it as well that you can use or ignore as you see fit.

Enjoy

Thanks. This is Good Stuff. Thanks for pointing it out. It's good to have the worked example and notes, plus I think I see a thin spot between our ATUs where some Garnish Corporation will bleed through into my ATU (perhaps at year 10, before the collapse.)

CEO Matt's character comes through well, and the mixed-race culture is fun. Plus, many of my current players haven't encountered Vargr yet.

So are either of you gents up for a some what slow paced pocket empire perhaps starting from Sol in 2040 AD with wheezing brand spanking new prototype TL-9 transports, and a desire to get out there and grab the land before the valani get it all?

yep. Slow paced is good for me. Makes it easier to juggle the less important but insistent real life commitments
