The Federation Commander PBEM Rules were developed in order to help Federation Commander players find opponents when there were no local prospects. The Federation Commander PBEM Rules are administered by ADB, Inc.

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please don't hesitate to bring them up to the PBEM Coordinator. We are always interested in the opinions of the players because, after all, these are YOUR rules.

These rules are the OFFICIAL ADB, Inc. Federation Commander PBEM Rules. Feel free to link to them, but please do NOT publish, post, or re-upload these rules without the express permission of ADB, Inc. Multiple copies floating around will cause problems with different updates and versions.
