Starship Warden

Post by azcromntic »

Is there a specific forum for Starship Warden? Is there a digital map pack for Starship Warden? Thanks

Yeah, I'm intrigued about Starship Warden too, in particular the Star Siege system and whether one could just run a straight up C&C game in it, a la Expedition to the Barrier Peaks. I saw a blog post where Jim Ward says that's precisely what he did with Gygax back in the day and Troll Lord has apparently published Ward's adventure update of that campaign. So I'm thinking about picking this up and running that. Plus, I'm frankly intrigued by its massive size and scope even though I'm not a big Sci-Fi RPG guy.

Still no word on the digital map pack. I think they do not use this forum much anymore (so I heard a while back). I’m a bit stubbord about using discord of which was said to be the place to go to communicate. blah. Is there a specific discord channel for Starship Warden? (I ask here because it is convenient and I’m too lazy to login and search).

I saw a review where they said the map pack was nothing special, though I suppose if you wanted to print off single maps for play, it could be handy. I ended up buying the core book and the Saving Wren adventure and the digital chronology, character sheet, etc., because I remembered that I had a coupon from TLG for 20% off. Should arrive Monday so I'm looking forward to it. As I said, I'm planning on using it for some alternative C&C adventures in the spirit of Expedition to the Barrier Peaks.

And yes, I loathe Discord as well. For one, it doesn't have full functionality on my MAC. Second, I'm not crazy about the Discord "culture" on the servers I've been on. You can get a weird combo of bullying, shilling, personal attacks, etc. mixed in with the game discussion and it often seems to veer off topic. Haven't been to the TLG Discord, but I'm not really interested in going there. I'll stick to these forums, even if they're less active.

I was under the impression there was an additional pack of maps that are in each section of the big book. I do have some maps from my purchase (and I didn’t really look at them that closely). It seems like the map pack should contain the blown up versions. Anyway … maybe I don’t know what I’m talking about. Digital would be nice for digital play.
