STAR FLEET BATTLES

Battle Group MURFREESBORO

Our group is listed on Starlist. Our group is also listed on yahoo groups: SFB_TN@yahoogroups.com


Upcoming Events:

Battlegroup Murfreesboro plays both Federation Commander and A Call to Arms Star Fleet at least once a month. We continue to play Federation and Empire on a regular basis, although now it’s usually either via Cyberboard or at major conventions.

Playtesting:

We also meet one Saturday or Sunday a month in the Casa de' Tomas war room for play testing. We are currently testing A Call to Arms Star Fleet version 1.2, and are writing more new scenarios for Federation Commander – including a conversion of the Red Wyn Express mini-campaign. Soon, our primary play test focus will shift to development of the Lyran Star Empire and expanded Orion Pirate fleets for ACTASF.

Demonstrations:

Battlegroup Murfreesboro regularly demos SFBF at two local CCG vendor locations, we will be scheduling demos of both Federation Commander and ACTASF at Roll the Dice Games and a couple of local conventions, and we are working to get a local Prime Directive campaign started at Roll the Dice Games.

Ongoing SFU activites:

Our members are active participants on both the Star Fleet Universe BBS and the php-based Federation Commander forum [look for us as scoutdad, SFU_Fear, the Burl, and hofnerss]. Mike Curtis serves as the Fed and Empire answer guy, Scott Burleson is working on the development of Federation and Empire Online, and Tony L. Thomas is one of the Prime Directive staff members, a Federation Commander staff member, a miniature sculptor, and has recently been named Lead Developer for A Call to Arms Star Fleet.
