This is an update to a Play-by-email SFB game--between Jenn and

Jonathan-- that I began moderating this summer.

The game started on July 25th of this year so it's about 3 months old.

We agreed to play using the SFB Cadet Rules because we were all looking for

a simple way to get into PBEM. From a moderator perspective I was

hoping for an easier game to cut my teeth on but I wouldn't advise

using the cadet rule set: the rule set isn't meant for this kind of

game and some problems took me by surprise.

In any case... we used the standard starting position and the standard

tournament map and the players chose their ships. Jenn in the Hydran

Cadet Cruiser and Jonathan in the Gorn.

The turns are Cadet turns and are 16 impulses long.

Without a doubt--playing a game in this way takes some effort and

stick-to-it-tiveness on the part of both the players and the moderator.
On the other hand there is a real pleasure to sitting down and watching

two ships slug it out and I find myself eagerly anticipating the next

set of moves.

I'm lucky to have two patient and courteous players taking part as I

learn the ins and outs of moderating. Jenn and Jon have been courteous

throughout and have been forgiving of my mistakes.

Please take a look at the site sebastianpalozzi.com and the 'Recap'

tab. Feedback is welcome.
