Is there a date when this game is to be released? I hope if is soon because it looks real interesting and I am sure my group would like to play it.
Also, what is the combat like? Is it watered down and real basic like AD&D or does it use hit locations with crits and charts?
Release date "Spring 2013" which usually means April, May or June.
Fast, Furious, Fun.
The initiative is roll to generate a slot for your side using a skill. (which skill is context determined - Cool or Vigilance)
When your side's slot is up, one player who has not yet gone this round takes their turn.
On your turn, do one maneuver, and one action. To get a second maneuver, either skip your action or take 2 stress.
Rolls to hit in personal combat are based upon range; in ship combat, upon relative size of ships.
Damage is based upon weapon and how well you hit. Armor worn can either absorb some damage or make you harder to hit, a rare few do both.
