Oct 6, 2020

Overview of pretty much everything we've figured out playing Squadrons Fleet Battles 24/7 since launch.

Also, this game is 100x better playing with friends.  We're really luck to have a large squadrons community piggybacking off our X-Wing minis community.  There's with multiple games (usually 3-4+) full of 5 players going at a time here: https://discord.com/invite/YEuFJbu

Main stream we use is https://www.twitch.tv/carolinakrayts but Reflex's (the Fighter player in this discussion) stream is https://www.twitch.tv/reflexx18 and the Interceptor player who unfortunately couldn't make it is https://www.twitch.tv/starslinger72

Example builds:

https://discord.com/invite/YEuFJbu is the community link.

 

First game night is tonight - Sept 19

Next movie night is TBD, previous was Sept 13.

In a rare and dangerously content filled distraction from usual, here's a quick guide to the landscape around squadrons.  What consoles make sense, what controllers make sense, and what's this VR business?

 

Feel free to ask for help in the "build-a-pc" discord channel in our server, after selecting the "Video Games" role here by clicking the controller reaction: https://discord.com/invite/YEuFJbu

This is definitely fine, and not a disaster

Jun 17, 2020

A one-shot set in the Deadlands Universe, using the Savage Worlds! system by Pinnacle Entertainment. It is Travis's favorite setting, and I wanted to share it. Pinnacle has made the Deadlands Reloaded handbooks free to everyone during quarantine, if anyone is interested: https://www.peginc.com/store/helpin-hands-bundle/

We're also using the newly released Foundry VVT, mostly because I wanted to try it out. Bear in mind that

1) I'm a newb at virtual table tops generally, and

2) even moreso with foundry, because my only previous experience was as a player on roll20, so don't hold that against foundry (or do, I don't own stock).
