I am always working on a few projects at a time, and usually planning ahead by quite a bit.

In that spirit, I figured I'd do an open playtest for something I am kicking around instead of relying on my usual shadowy cabal.

The game is aimed at 10-40 figures a side, organized into squads though they are fairly flexible.

Alternating activations with a few twists (the order you activate in can influence you quite a bit and there's a small chance of units being unable to act).

Leaders can issue commands to push troops for extra moves, shots or to rally faster.

Each figure fires individually and most weapons have an area of effect.

Suppression is on the mild side but is built into the firing mechanics.

Troop stats for a few typical scifi archetypes and a small selection of weapons. enough to begin testing things out.

Reaction fire is present but toned down a lot compared to some games.

The aim is a game in the spirit of Rogue Trader, where a wide range of figures can be accomodated and a bit more friendly to some of the space fantasy than No End in Stars was.
