Dios, G.R. 2012

Image

"Commander. I hope your men are well-prepared. Today's mission won't be slaughtering pwnies. And look: even my guests made it in time."

Image

Commander: "Duchess! You're alive! And... a Brittanian?!"

"It's amazing what can be achieved with Demon Magic- *cough* Immortal Technology and a good number of sacrifices. Duchess Angelica will take the traitor Duke Felipe's place. With that matter solved, we can look ahead again. Sir Rolys is here to support us: I'll need all the expendable pawns- I mean co-workers I can get my hands on like Bonn-o-Tron."

Image

"We thought the Prussians were able to land their forces unnoticed because the Midnight had been infiltrated, but it's worse, far worse. Look."

Image

They've established a full space station above Dios and are in league with a force of Assyrians. The space station kept the ships around it cloaked and made it seem like the Midnight was still in orbit, but it wasn't too difficult to find them once we knew they were there. The Midnight's crew must have betrayed you for this to be able to happen unnoticed. I've already ordered your ground-to-air batteries to start an assault, but the space station's defenses are impregnable at this range, and it even shields its escorts from damage. Our only chance is to take them out with a naval assault, close and personal."

Image

"Since the Space Station's shields may very well be impregnable, our only hope of taking it out will be to land you and your men on it and destroy it from the inside."

Commander: "That sounds like a suicide mission!"

"Your point?"

"..."

The place must be crawling with those mutants we faced earlier, so I will be personally accompanying your squad. My lieutenant can take care of my ship."

Image

"The Space Station's defenses are not completely finished yet, and we must keep it that way. Once its offensive capabilities are finished it'll have the power to assert Anti-Immortal domination over your entire home planet. As of now it has only one hyper phase cannon. My own battleship and the Brittanians will attack them from the side it's on to distract them..."

Image

"... while your Dragonhead cruisers will attack from the other direction. A Jaguar-class will carry your squad and will have to be brought close enough to the Space Station for your men to board it. And remember, we can only destroy the Space Station from the inside, so the fate of this mission rests on you, commander. Even if we destroy the fleet guarding it, we'll only have a limited amount of time until the space station destroys us all."

My microspace rules:

Spoiler: show
Basics

The core of what you need to know to play.

Pilot crews

The pilots and captain of your ship play an active role. Each ship has 2 pilots and 1 captain. They each have 1 action they can use towards operating the ship's weapons or systems. Their skill is rolled against the UR of the weapon / system. A pilot can only shoot 1 weapon type, but he can shoot every weapon of that type the ship has at one target (so he could fire all 4 small turrets with 1 action but not fire both a small turret as well as a rocket launcher with his 1 action). The same weapon can only be fired once each round, but there is no limit on system usage (so all pilots could for example try to increase shield output at the same time).

Possible captain / pilot actions (effects last a round):
- Increase movement output (+1” move) UR: 4
- Increase shield output (+1 to shield) UR: 4
- Increase weapon output (+1 damage) UR: 4
- Increase targeting systems (+1 accuracy) UR: 4
- Use weapon (UR / effects differ)
- Commence boarding (no UR)

Automatic weapons

Some weapons are AI-controlled and will automatically fire, but you can also command them to fire on different targets for free. The skill of the AI is rolled against the UR of the automatic weapon system. The skill of the AI depends on your ship.

[url=http://www.brikwars.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=8598]Ship stats[/u]

Quick order template:

Title: Round + ship / hero / whatever
Using systems: which pilot does what other than firing.
Automatic systems: they will always automatically shoot the nearest enemy vessel in range, but you could also specify targets.
Heroic feat: optional, but encouraged
Movement: where does your ship go, how does it turn, if it does.
Attacks: which pilot fires which weapon at which part of the enemy ship or possible boarding actions.

Example

Title: Round 4 Captain Hook
Using systems: Slimy Pete attempts to increase movement output.
Automatic systems: My ship's anti-fighter turrets and tower should fire on the enemy bombercraft.
Heroic feat: Captain Hook shouts some 'your momma is so fat...' jokes across the comlink to Peter Pan to make him cry and decrease his skill by -1 for the round.
Movement: My ship moves up beside Peter Pan's.
Shooting: Ugly Joe fires the harpoons at one of Peter Pan's turrets. Captain Hook orders to board the ship. He joins the attack but leaves Slimy Pete and Ugly Joe to steer the ship. Once inside slaughter them all and snuggle their moms. It's the only way to be sure.

Extra

The details of how everything works.

Movement: The basic movement your ship has is free. Just keep in mind turning your ship also costs inches. The ‘inch cost’ is simply the distance the ship has to turn measured from the nose away to the nose's new position. Keep in mind this means larger ships will have more difficulties turning quickly.

Movement mods (for attacker’s skill rolls)
3”: +1
4”: no mod
5”: -1
(and so on)

Slowing down: A ship always has to move at at least half the speed it was moving it's last turn.

Movement indicators: I’ll keep track of the speed at which something is moving by the number of bricks I’ll put behind it. 1” is indicated by 1 stud.

Size mods
Size 1 (all fightercraft and ship’s weapons): -1”
Size 2 (gunboats / frigates): no mod
Size 3 (cruisers) +1

Destroying weapons: You can order your crew to aim at enemy ships' weapons at the cost of +1 UR (since weapons are size 1). Weapons have only 1 SP. Their armour is the ship’s armour minus 1. In the event of a weapon being destroyed the hull is damaged by the resulting 1d6 explosion + eventual plowthrough damage. An area of effect attack may damage the hull and the weapons simultaneously.

Nearmiss: Unless you miss really badly a missed attack against fe a turret will probably still hit the hull of a ship.

Firing angles: some weapons only shoot in a straight line, others have a wider range. This’ll always be specified in the weapon’s stats.

Firing missiles: Missiles are homing and continue moving towards their target after they are fired. If you skillfail they will fly the amount of points you skillfailed off course before readjusting the next round. They can only adjust 1” for every 2” distance crossed and if they pass their target they won’t come around again. On a 1 they explode prematurely and damage your ship.

Boarding: If your ship or boarding pod gets as close as 1" or less to an enemy ship you can board it. For ships this requires an action. Once boarding is initiated, both ship's marines will immediately start fighting. The attacker and defender will have to specify whether they want their captains and / or pilots to leave the bridge to join the fight. Attention: the ship becomes uncontrolable if they leave the bridge. If all defending marines are dead the captain / pilots are forced to leave the bridge and join the fight.

Ramming: Ramming / crashing damage is calculated as follows: Armour of ramming ship + speed +- opposing speed + size + shields + SP (when the order is to kamikaze rather than ram the ramming ship's remaining SP are added at the cost of the ramming ship being destroyed automatically)
