Fog of War twilight games have been done before for online twilight 3 games about 3 years ago before the forum kept crashing.

Some Fog of War games had each planet ring rotate around Mecatol Rex. Some rings went clockwise, other rings went counter clockwise.

The GM player pm the players the maps they could see.

In every case, most players did not have a clue what the other players was doing and the GM had a great time.

But the work the GM had to do was..... tremendous.

 

As a player, it was extremely nerve wracking to see a heavily armed Warsun show up out of nowhere and then disappear into the unknown section of the galaxy.

I can imagine that would be rather scary XD

Sounds like a fun way to play though. Doubly so since my race of choice is the Ghosts of Creuss. It'd give them a big tactical edge being able to scatter recon fleets throughout the galaxy via the wormholes. Although now that I think about it, wormholes would be kept under close guard anyways, to keep any nasty surprises from suddenly popping into your neck of the woods.

Yeah, the only thing I dislike about what you mention is the rotation of the rings.

I ran a game like that once.  (I was unemployed at the time so I had a fair amount of free time to kill making player maps.)

It was a lot of fun for me, but I think most of the players were just wandering around in the dark, waiting for it to end.  IIRC, Hacan ended up winning, largely because he was the only player who made extensive use of the house rules for sending out communications into the void. =)
