Added Scenario 2.

Tried to replicate a small ship floor plan.  Biggest thing to test is the pacing.  Having 5 turns to upload data to much/little?  This will consequently effect the departure time for escape pod run.

I have uploaded the first scenario for the demo set I am putting together.  I ran out of time to finish the 'package', but hope to have it done in the next couple days...bare minimum I'll post second scenario tomorrow.  Until then, please give it a look.  Bear in mind that this is designed to tell a story, with the second one being the culmination (as much as you can have with only 2 scenarios!).

One note:  The 'gray' area is part of the map I added if the normal map is to confined.  I was trying to creating sort of a congested shipping container complex (aka outpost) with as many open areas as the tiles allowed.  Try it without the gray area a few times first to see if it flows well.  The gray area would basically provide a slightly easier escape route but not much in the way of attack.

Thoughts, ideas, criticisms welcome. Enjoy.

go to the media section.
add a new directory for yourself link in right nav menu -- add new album)
upload your zip, pdf and/or image file(s) there. :) (again, right nav menu -- add new item)

Sounds good, thanks...wasn't sure I had rights to do so.  Forgot my files at home today, so hopefully I'll remember tomorrow:-(

Thanks very much. I think we should stick to the templates for now so existing owners can simply replicate the board if thye like.

I have the maps done and the scenarios written up.  Will work on PDFing them this week for consumption/playtesting.  FYI, I made the decision to use only one 'set' of Template Pack 1 for demo map creation.  Essentially half what the box set is.  Seeing that you/we are leaning towards a demo version, halving everything makes sense and is easy.  Starter/demo boxed set would include:

4 Commandos
5 Nightmares
1 Fiend
1 double-sided color map (using Template Pack 1 graphics)
2 scenarios
1 Starter Rulebook w/minimal color printable counters (doors, terminal, etc.)
2 6-sided dice

Where/how can I post the file(s) here?

I can easily provide a DL link if posting here is not possible.

Anyone up to creating or playtesting these 2 missions?

I have created quite a few scenarios for my own LoS campaign, I'm sure I can give it a try...and I will certainly playtest others.

My only question is what style do you want the 'map' in?  Totally new with no bounds, or something using the same tiles as before just in a single map form?  Also, what limits to poster size (so I know how many tiles or 1" map squares I have to work with)?

I'm not the worlds greatest writer, so I will be cutting and pasting some of your old fluff to make sure it works well.  I'll leave notations where I do that.  I just want it to work correctly with the current timeline and narrative.

Thanks very much. I think we should stick to the templates for now so existing owners can simply replicate the board if thye like.

Clean consolidated "Black Book" of Rules would be top of mind. New art, new illustrations.

I am working on a clean version of the black box rules and should have them soon for free as PDF for easy printing
