The rulebook for ISC War is now available on e23. We didn't want people to be confused and think they were getting the whole game, so this is the plain cover you would see were you to purchase the rulebook as a spare part.

http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=ADB3210-2

F&E ISC War: The final empire comes to Federation & Empire as the Inter-Stellar Concordium arrives to keep the peace.

The rulebook includes a massive six-sector peacekeeping scenario, another scenario that takes place during the General War, complete Order of Battle, and new rules.

F&E 2010 Rulebook Now Available from Multiple Sources

Battle for the Galaxy!

Federation & Empire is set in the universe of Star Fleet Battles. The Grand Alliance (Federation, Gorns, Kzintis, Tholians, and Hydrans) battles the Coalition (Klingons, Romulans, and Lyrans) for control of the galaxy!

This is the Federation & Empire 2010 rulebook, containing the most up-to-date rules and scenarios so that you can explore the intricacies of stellar warfare. It has been fully updated with all published rulings, and includes a few rules from various expansions which we decided needed to be in the main rulebook. (This does not include the expansion rulebooks.) This high-resolution PDF is fully searchable, making it easy to find any rule.

This is only the rulebook, not the complete game. There are no counters or maps.

Get it from these sources:

Federation & Empire Compendium Available

"I remember reading something about that strategy, but where ...?"

Every issue of Captain's Log magazine includes a section of new material (tactics, scenarios, ship, errata, Q&A, rulings) for Federation & Empire, and this 260-page compendium has them all! Every F&E article (indeed, the entire F&E sections) from Captain's Log #20 through Captain's Log #40. These have not been updated or edited from the original publication, and are provided for reference and player convenience. That's a LOT of F&E material, much of it available nowhere else, in one helping. This compendium predates the F&E 2010 Rulebook.

Available in print:

http://store.starfleetstore.com/merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=S&Product_Code=5718&Category_Code=08

And as an ebook:

F&E ISC War Rulebook Now Available from Multiple Sources

Keep the peace!
Or else!
-- The Inter-Stellar Concordium

At the end of the General War came the ISC War. The Inter-Stellar Concordium concluded that the rest of the Alpha Octant was criminally insane and had to be protected from their own dangerous ideas and violent impulses.

This rulebook includes information about the ISC's ships, the Pacification Battle Stations, and the ISC echelon. Also included are exciting scenarios such as "Gathering Winds" (the ISC meets the Gorns and Romulans and it does not go well) and "Driving Winds" (the ISC decides to keep the peace their own way). For the first time you can see the Order of Battle for the Interstellar Concordium.

To play this game, you will need Federation & Empire and the expansions will add depth. It also requires the counters (not included in the digital copy).

Warehouse 23: http://www.warehouse23.com/products/federation-and-empire-isc-war-rulebook (digital only)

DriveThru RPG: http://rpg.drivethrustuff.com/product/130704/Federation--Empire-ISC-War-Rulebook

Wargame Vault: http://www.wargamevault.com/product/130704/Federation--Empire-ISC-War-Rulebook

Federation & Empire Compendium Part 3 Is Now Available

Federation & Empire players asked for a compilation of F&E information from Captain's Log, putting all sorts of useful information in their hands in one easy book. Compiling all the information from Captain's Log #20-Captain's Log #40 actually took two books, Federation & Empire Compendium Parts 1 and 2. Now that we have wrapped up Captain's Log #50, we have compiled Part 3 with all the F&E information from Captain's Log #41-Captain's Log #50. We even hunted up information from the Captain's Log Supplemental Files.

All of the rulings, Tactical Notes, questions and answers, Ship Information Tables, scenarios, playtest rules, and proposals from those issues are in this handy compendium. Captain's Log #41 marked the release of the F&E 2010 Rulebook, so you will have all the information about it.

These pages have not been edited from the original publication, so you may find an earlier ruling is changed later on. However, with this collection, you will know the why behind such decisions.

It is available online from:

Warehouse 23: http://www.warehouse23.com/products/ADB5718-3

DriveThru RPG: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/148150/

Wargame Vault: http://www.wargamevault.com/product/148150/

It is available in print from ADB: http://store.starfleetstore.com/merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=S&Product_Code=5718-3&Category_Code=01

FREE! About Federation & Empire Is Now Available

Have you ever wondered what Federation & Empire is all about? This booklet is designed to tell you more about the wide-ranging game that so many now enjoy. While you cannot play Federation & Empire with the information you will find here, you can make an informed choice about whether you would enjoy the game.

Here you will find an explanation of what the game entails and a map of the Alpha Octant of the Milky Way Galaxy (including the location of familiar empires such as the Federation, Klingons, Romulans, Gorns, Tholians, and Kzintis, along with less familiar empires such as the Inter-Stellar Concordium and Lyrans). The entire first chapter of the main rulebook is included. It has definitions, a sequence of play, and much more. You will also find a timeline of the Star Fleet Universe that covers the time of the General War. There is an article explaining what generally happens during a typical turn. Finally, to leave you smiling, there is a short humorous story about "The Order of the 'F' and the 'E'" which you, too, could join.

Federation & Empire: The Hurricane Scenario Available

This is the six-sector version of the classic Federation & Empire Scenario (603) The Hurricane. It originally appeared in three parts in Captain's Log #41, Captain's Log #41 Supplemental File, and Captain's Log #42.

Scenario (603) The Hurricane was one of the scenarios in the Federation & Empire boxed strategic game. It covers the period from the Romulan Invasion of the Federation to the final collapse of the Coalition Offensive at the very gates (well, starbases) of the Federation's capital region. The original scenario was one big thing, but this version (fully updated for all of the expansions) divides the campaign into six sectors (Hydran Front, Kzinti Front, Gorn-Romulan Front, Federation-Romulan front, and two sectors of the Klingon-Federation front). Players can play just one sector for an evening's game, or combine multiple sectors for a weekend of gaming, or spend an entire week on the entire campaign.

You can get this scenario from the following sources:

We are working to get F&E Figher Ops 2015 uploaded on Tuesday of next week (15 Sept).

UNDERSTAND that this will be a complete book BUT we intend to colect reports for a week, then do the final rules. That will then be a free update (and the hard copy).

So if you want a campaign ribbon, download it send send a report by the next Monday (21 Sept). If you don't want to be bothered with downloading it twice wait until we do the update later that week.

New Empires! New Ships! New Tactics! New Scenarios!

For years, players have wondered what effect the Lyran Democratic Republic, the Vudar Enclave, and the Seltorian Tribunal would have had on the General War. Wonder no longer! Play these empires and find out for yourself.

The Lyran Democratic Republic is more than just a renegade province of the Lyran Star Empire. It is a vital balance point between the Lyrans and Hydrans. In Wall Cloud, find out what would have happened had the LDR reunited with the Lyrans.

The Vudar Enclave was far different than the Klingons tricked the Federation into believing, but it was still a player in the final years of the General War. They locked up territory in a "neutral" enclave that was secretly much closer to the Klingon Empire than thought. Find out about "The Hole," containing a secret shipyard and fleet. In Static Fog, the Klingons decide to crush the Vudar. In Electric Storm, the LDR and Vudar decide to carve new empires from old.

The Seltorian Tribunal arrived late in the General War and asked the Klingons for a planet where they could set up a base to attack the Tholians. The Klingons were only too happy to have a new ally -- until they discovered the Seltorian secret. In Vortex of Vengeance the Seltorians declare war on the Tholians. In Freak Storm Seltorians, Hydrans, LDR, and Vudar attack the Klingons.

You will need the Federation & Empire 2010 Rulebook and various countersheets to use this expansion.

You can download the Minor Operations Rulebook from these sources:

Warehouse 23: http://www.warehouse23.com/products/ADB3214-2

DriveThru RPG: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/177666/

Wargame Vault: http://www.wargamevault.com/product/177666/

It is available as a complete expansion (including three copies of Countersheet Five, one copy of Countersheet Six, three Depot Charts (one for each of the new empires), and three Fleet Charts (one for each of the new empires) from either your local game store or direct from ADB: http://store.starfleetstore.com/merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=S&Product_Code=3214&Category_Code=
