The theory is to do one pack of cards per week, a different empire each time. We have to work our way through all of the empires before starting over. When we do a given empire, we do whatever ships look interesting, some existing, some new.

Thanks, I look forward to getting all of the packs online.

Just bought the Romulan, Hydran, Gorn & Lyran #1 packs today. Rated 5 stars of course.

Also saw that you're putting up old Captain's Logs, will be picking those up as well, even though I could go to my boxes of well-loved old SFB stuff and pull out those magazines. Ahh, to be 16 in 1984 again, playing SFB with my friends.

Then again, I'm in my 40's now and playing Federation Commander with my friends, so there's not all that much difference Smile

(new to the forums here... been reading a while, but this is my first post!)

Picked up the RRB6 PDF for two reasons: 1) hopefully going forward I can still get rules updates in one place, and 2) it's in colour (seriously, that's the main reason I went PDF instead of print!).

I rated the PDF a 4. It worked beautifully on my iPad - quite readable, loads quickly, all that jazz. What it is missing for me is bookmarks. Ideally every single rule would have a bookmark, but that is obviously a TON of work! Safe to say that I don't really know where the sweet spot is in terms of work to bookmarks, but it would be really great to have some.

(that's totally aside from the fact that I want to print it out and give it a hardcover binding ... Very Happy)

Mike

Mike, part of the problem is that each person wants the book bookmarked in a different way. Some folks only want to flip to the chapters; others want each rule. We decided to let folks bookmark it as they wanted since a simple PDF search for a rule number would pull them up.

For a small company, it seemed the logical way to spend our time wisely.

Do we know if recent rules clarifications are going to be incorporated into a putative RRB6b?

We clarify rules all the time. Any clarifications would be in the next version of whatever rulebook is involved. We don't do new versions very often, no more often than once a year and not always that often.

I just picked up the Omega playtest book(5*) and the Orion pirates fleet pack,(also 5*). This is a great way to purchase just what you need. Cool Cool

I recently bought Planet Aldo because i'm new to Gurps and wanted to concentrate on the rules and not have to worry too much about the story and I thought at the worst i'm out 3 dollars. After using it I was very happy and I plan to buy the other 2 adventures as well. I can use them when we want to play a game and I don't have the time or am just not in the mood to write up an adventure. 5 Star!!
