kicking campaign ideas around in my head for some time now, and I've finally decided to run something.
Although I've covered similar ground in a previous scenario, The Chancellor Campaign is also inspired by Delta's look at the boardgame Sink the Bismark. Like the historical scenario it's based on, the idea is to have two powerful ships hunting supply convoys and in turn being hunted by a larger number of less powerful ships.
Since I'm not inclined to run massive play-by-email battles (like those I discovered here and here), I will conduct the starship combat on the tabletop, using my miniatures and the Starfleet Wars rules. I want to referee these games, and I welcome any San Antonio- and Austin-area players who want to participate. If I can't find enough players, I'll play one side myself.
For the strategic moves, however, I'd like to give my blog readers a chance to take part. Therefore, I'm looking for some online players to take the role of the starbase admirals and the various fleets via email. I need three players for the Alliance forces: one player will be in charge of Material Command and direct the various supply convoys, the next player will command the numerous yet relatively weaker ships of the Homeworld Fleet, and the last player will control the smaller number of powerful vessels of the Patrol Fleet. On the other side, I need one or two players to direct the massive Chancellor and its almost-as-powerful escort, the Noble Knight Prince.
So to sum it up: I need lots of local players who want to game starship combat, and I need four or five email players who will direct these fleets at the strategic level. Please leave a comment if you're interested in taking part, either in person or via email.
