I made a Table Top Game... (Spoilers Inside)

Post by Maloo Oture » Sat Mar 21, 2015 7:24 pm

So I made a modified version of D&D using star control II as the template... Tomorrow night is our second session. The characters were created last time and it was a huge success with my friends (All of whom have never played SC). They learned about Earth from Hayes, they explored the moon and found the abandoned base and they got the radioactives from Mercury. They were talking about getting Hayes to join them when the Ilwrath showed up. But right as the Ilwrath was about to give them their doom speech, one of the players had to leave. Such suspense! I'll keep you guys posted as it continues. Any questions, feel free to ask. Also, my friends are all aware that none of the art I'm using or the story, are mine. I've told them where I'm getting all my material and that they are dead if they look up spoilers. lol.

That sounds really cool! I'd love to be a part of that. Well, except, I'd know what to do and everything but yeah.

Good luck- I bet they'll enjoy it!

…and keep us updated too!
KYAAAAAIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEE!

They're all coming over in a few hours for it. It's super exciting. I think it's going to be a huge success. I work as a security guard at a glass factory and on the overnight shifts, when nothing happens, I get to sit there and continually work on this project. All that time put into it is what I think is making it so fun.

Keep us posted :) and also, if you can... what did you homebrew in order to transfer the d&D mechanics to SC2? How do you handle ship battle for instance?

Well, i made some cut outs of the ships and cut outs of the modules the ships can hold. Different modules include weapons, comms, shields, engines, helm, etc. When in combat the ships fight like they do in ftl. By targeting systems or even crew.

Different modules get different effects. And they can upgrade their ship to use higher level weapons once they acquire the tech from the melnormae.

*Ahem*... It's spelled Melnorme. That "a" has no reason to be there, so in case you've used the same spelling throughout the entire game, I'd suggest fixing it...

When you speak a different language than terran English it might be the correct spelling.. :)

Right. I was typing on my phone for that post and I can't use it's keyboard in any efficient way.

Would I be able to get a copy of whatever you have so that I could try this to, I have a couple of freinds that like to play dnd together but after some issues we have chosen to try some new games out. I think that this might be intresting to try out and if you could send me some of the stuff you created it would save me some time having to attemt to create a star control clone myself.
