So I got pulled into Phantom League's preparation for the new edition. There will be solo rules. Unfortunately I can't say anything further than that.

Anyways, I will definitely not ever do a review for this game, since I now regard myself as too close to the project to be sufficiently objective, but I will be doing tutorial videos (or at least that's how it's planned for now).

How Me Grimlock get geekgold?
mbmbmbmbmb


way back in the day. And after he wouldn’t stop posting about it, I just had to get my own copy of this Firefly-like box of goodness. This game is not a solo game by any means, but thus far, that’s only how I’ve played it…one Captain, exploring the galaxy, trading/smuggling goods, and getting into various battles with Aliens, Pirates, and the Alliance.



My randomly chosen Captain this game was Kerberos. He’s good at mining Ore…assuming you can find an Asteroid Belt nearby…which I never did, but more on that later. His random ship draw was the Courier. It’s a luxury cruiser, built with style in mind. It’s relatively quick, which could be useful in combat…assuming you actually take advantage of said skill…which I didn’t, but more on that later as well.

After setting up the Courier with a Small Cargo Bay, Kerberos reviewed his three potential, starting Missions: Toxic Waste Dump, Scratch a Friend, Pirate Hideout. The first required a system of unknown origins. The second is only valid in a multiplayer game, but I could figure something out. The third not only required a different system, also of unknown origin, but it is mainly about combat. And the Courier would need some improvements before we could handle that.

So off Kerberos went looking to build up some cash through selling Ore. However, since no Asteroid Belts were known, he resorting to buying low and selling high. After a few runs back and forth between Central and nearby neutral planet, Nova Sanguinus, Kerberos got restless. He wanted to find an Asteroid Belt for mining and increase his profits more quickly.

Besides, there were no known Space Stations either, and to buy improvements, at least one would need to be found. And so, Kerberos steered the Courier into unknown space. Upon his first jump into Hyperspace, he had an Alien Encounter. A small droid vessel appeared in his spacecraft. He was given the message, “You have been chosen. Fly to New Hebron and meet Us.”

Neat.

But first, more exploration. Again, a jump through Hyperspace was needed, but this time a Calculation Error threw the Courier off course. Kerberos ended up back at Nova Sanguinus instead. So, after a refuel, he decided to head to New Hebron and gain some recognition for his intergalactic meetup.

Exploration was still on his mind…and somewhat necessary with still no Space Stations or Asteroid Belts in the known universe. However, Kerberos’ luck was not so good. An Engine Failure prevented further exploration, and he ended up returning to previously visited locations needing more fuel. While back at Central, he ran into the Holy Inquisition and donated 100 Credits to help with his level of Fame.

Buying some Ore while he was there, he headed back to Nova Sanguinus yet again wanting to make some quick cash. Instead, he ran into A Trap! Two Pirates were waiting for Kerberos…I guess that’s what happens when you fall into too much of a routine. But since the Courier was still without any upgrades, Kerberos got outta Dodge. Fast. He used all his remaining fuel to escape without encountering the Pirates.

Taking a bit of damage en route to A Better Place, a League Dominion Planet, Kerberos refueled and set his sights on finding something more useful to his Missions. He ran into an Alliance Patroller as he headed into new territory, but since the Courier was vacant of any illegal cargo, they let Kerberos pass. For now.

He came upon 7th Heaven, another League Dominion planet…and still no Space Station or Asteroid Belt to be found. He sold off what Ore he had picked up back in Central and looked for a new Mission to replace Scratch a Friend. Turns out Eccentric IV was in need of Medical Aid and required 3 units of Narcotics. This could be somewhat risky as that could be construed as illegal contraband by an Alliance Unit in a bad mood.

Hmmmm.

Before heading out to pick up some of the needed medical supplies for Eccentric IV, Kerberos headed once more into Hyperspace…and still no Space Station or Asteroid Belt. But what he did find was Serendipity. A lonely escape pod transponder lead him to a drifting spacecraft. In it was some illegal “cargo”. Slaves. He could sell them for a large profit. But this would send him down the path of Notoriety, and there would be no turning back.

Desperate to get things moving along, Kerberos loaded his find into the Courier and headed to 7th Heaven, where he would receive a high price for his revolting actions. But when he arrived, he was Ambushed by an Alliance Patroller. They must have been keeping an eye on him from his last run-in with them. The Courier, without any combat upgrades, wasn’t going to last long in a fight. It was faster than the Patroller and actually got in a couple of hits on the ship. But rather than using his special stunt maneuver to avoid further combat, Kerberos tried to take down the Patroller. Instead, the Courier took major damage. Just before it would be blown to a million little pieces, Kerberos used his small escape pod to flee.

And so, Kerberos had to start again. He found a cheap ship, the Desperado, that would suit his needs. No need for a fancy cruiser. The Desperado would be just fine. It was pretty sturdy, despite its looks. And he could carry a decent amount cargo as is. With a few enhancements, he should be able to get his life back on track.

With three new Missions on hand (Exploration, Pirate Hunt, and Renegade Efforts), Kerberos continued his search for a Space Station. Despite the Desperado having Fuel Leak in its first jump into Hyperspace, Kerberos was finally successful. A Space Station! El Dorado is run by the League Dominion and could be used for upgrading the Desperado for future Missions. Kerberos headed back to Central to collect his easy 100 Credits for fulfilling the Exploration Mission.

When he got there, he found Sweet Silence. Very odd how everything was quiet. Too quiet. It was ominously empty. This would not be a good sign for things to come. Before heading out again, Kerberos picked up a new Mission, Census. He was to visit all five Space Stations….what?! seriously?!?...to collect Census data. And so, Kerberos, unwittingly, headed into the void again.

This time, he found….Hostile Aliens. Carnivorous Insectoids. Of course, it had to be Carnivorous Insectoids. So, it was either fight or be eaten. Or, in this case fight and be eaten. The opening round of battle began with a wonderful “mistake.” The alien spacecraft actually Collided with the Desperado! This caused three damage to both ships, leaving the Insectoids with only two hits to its structure.

The Desperado, despite it being held together with superglue and InstaFix, was a fairly sturdy hunk of metal. Taking three damage only knocked one-third of its structure down. The Carnivorous Insectoids put up a strong defense at first, but Kerberos actually squeezed in one more hit on the aliens. But it only put off the inevitable. Being that the alien spacecraft was much quicker than the Desperado, it didn’t hesitate in round two of battle. It unleashed a massive attack upon Kerberos and the Deperado.



And this time, there was no escape for the Captain.



So glad to have finally gotten this back to table. Such a solid, thematic game experience. I’m very pleased to have this in my collection despite not playing it all that often. The combat system is a little wonky upon first reading the rules, but they aren’t that bad after you “get it.” One of these days, I’d like to play it multi-player solo and get a little more “action” going in the early part of the game.

Excellent game that provides a wonder sci-fi, Firefly-esque narrative. Good stuff!!
