    Converting games systems, including DW, into a d20 system...you should see how fast it plays.

  1. If I can piggy-back off your though Rule, can I get some places where I can get info about the game other than here? I don't Facebook (noone should anymore) so where am I to keep up with our game?
  2. So a new game system? A cleaner, quicker, less fiddly game system, I hope, yes? I am all for anything that makes the game faster play and more appealing to new players. I would have an easier time getting my game group to play 'SAW: the home game' than sit down for a joyous 5 hours of explodey resin goodness. (and they would never have to buy anything, I have a massive collection) yet still few will play... Makes me wish I had all the bugs worked out of my D20 conversion. It runs at least twice as fast since an entire attack rolls on a single d20 instead of a bucket of d6s. But anyway, bring it on, I am very much curious about the new version and I can't wait to play v3. Except that there is no Union, in my world, they still lost. But, if the 'American' force was from the Republic of Texas, that would be a different story.

    Atlanta Light Cruiser

    Sircan, you make additional models for ships? You might be my new best friend!! I lost out big on the failed Kickstarter (cough $800+ cough) but the biggest hurt was not getting new ship designs, you might have just fixed that for me. I don't have a 3D printer and the one guy I know who has one is not exactly reliable. Are you able to make those too or can I get the file and go pester that guy? Also, did you help design the KS ships? Asuo, I wonder what other ships failed the cut, you have any intel on any of those? Also, I will never be able to wrap my head around this Union business, the South won in this version, that was one of the really intriguing aspects of this game, alternate outcomes.

    Changes to the physical design of the ship. As in modifying the existing Lexi to remake her into the Atlanta. Literally an arts and crafts project. I would also have said the stats of the ship, but someone else already did that.

    Atlanta Light Cruiser

    Awesome thank you! I want to make this into an actual ship for my fleet and needed to make sure I have the weapons right. Thinking a slightly smaller Lexington with bigger secondaries and a permanent rocket launcher. Or, bring a dedicated AA platform maybe ditch the rockets for a AA turret similar to the Mississippi mk2. I wonder if WC would be as accepting of my ship/game modifications as Spartan used to be?
  6. I am trying to find anything on a ship I saw once, it was an FSA light cruiser called the Atlanta. I don't remember the stats other than it seemed to have been built as an AA platform. It was probably on an experimental Orbat or something, but I have gone through all my saved files and cannot find it. Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction?
  7. Staring mournfully at the possible loss of our nation, flag and identity, this old soldier stands, ready to fight but confused as to whether he still has a nation to fight for. (in my best Doc Holliday, proper Georgian) "Would someone kindly inform me of the tale by which this has come to pass, and speak of this Wild Exodus to the West everyone has been carrying on about. More importantly, how does that affect our beloved Federated States of this here America?"

    Welcome Back Everyone!

    Out of the life raft and back onboard, glad to see some familiar faces around here already. What was this I heard about Rum?

    Introduce Yourself

    Glad to see my game survived, I have a Lot of fleets, and really didn't want to lose that investment. I was backing the Rear Admiral KS when the old tub sank, so it loseing that stake hit me hard. But anyway, back to the game: Which games produced by Warcradle Studios do you play? Dystopian wars with all three elements, air, land, and sea. I think this is Armored Core now/again, and I am waiting to see how that works out. I also play older Fantasy Ships game that was once supported by the same company, not sure if War-Daddy bought them or not, so I won't use the name, but it was something about Waters without Charts. (hope it was bought, loved that game) How long have you been playing these games? About 4 years I found it a little late in the run, but at the time I could still find the ships at my FLGS. Where do you play? My house mostly, I am in the Atlanta area and have entirely too many things to carry about. So my dedicated game room hosts the world spanning campaign that my friends and I have been playing. Which fleets and armies do you own? Which fleets and armies do you plan to add to your collection? Federated States of America - Air, Land, & Sea. Just about everything with multiples, can field easily 5 navies, 4 armies and 2 air fleets, with these guys, love my 'Feds. (very worried about changes to these guys) Prussian Empire - Air, Land, & Sea. Again, just about everything with multiples, can field easily 4 navies, 5 armies and 3 air fleets, love my Prussians Britannia - Air, Land, & Sea most things with multiples, can field 3 navies, 2 armies and 3 air fleets I like the Brits. Empire of the Blazing Sun - Air, Land, & Sea most things with multiples, can field 3 navies, 3 armies and 2 air fleets. the EOtBS are the quintessential bad guys at my table. France - Air, Land, & Sea Everything in many multiples, can field 5 navies, 6 armies and 3 air fleets I dont even like the French units, but Ebay was kind to me so here they are. Antarcticans- Air, Land, & Sea you guessed it, multiples, can field 5 navies, 5 armies and 1 fat air fleet, I even have custom dice for them, everyone loves the Machinegun Penguins. Russia - Air, Land, & Sea, can field 4 navies, 6 armies and 1 janky air fleet. The Ruskies are the other big bad in my world. Just like they were in WWII they are their own side. Italians (New Roman Empire imw) - Air, & Sea can field 3 navies, and 1 nasty air fleet I love these guys. Also they have an army in my world, made of proxy pieces I modded for the job, even made their own stats too. Black wolf- enough to field a decent fleet with air support, or a murder squad of 3 super submarines (so patently unfair the concept was banned) Also haves: East India ships, Merchantmen, Buildings, Fortresses, Airstrip, Harbor and probably other things I forget... What is your favourite Warcradle Studios model? The FSA battleships are my favorite, the Liberty and Mississippi were awesome, would love to see a new Dreadnought built along their lines. I thought the Battlecruisers were great all around, though they needed a bit of strengthening to really stand in, but loved the models for just about all of them, the Annapolis being my favorite of course. The airships also deserve some love, a great many designs were fantastic, but so little used because the rules made them complicated. Anything else you would like to tell the Warcradle Studios Community? Please in the name of all that is holy, focus on making the rules smooth and intuitive. I would dearly love to see a game that does not require us to reference obscurely written rules which force you to flip back and forth to referece other rules. Seriously, I love this game. But playing it is literally reminiscent of researching case law (for legal cases), we probably dont want to limit this game to Juris Doctorates. I appreciate you asking for my opinion on this. Best if luck with the new properties.

    Do you mean the Firestorm Armada site? then no, I don't see enough Trolls. I kid... but really though, really don't go in there it's bad. If you mean the Free States of America, then yeah, anywhere I go it will probably have a mention of the 'Muricans , even though I actually play all the major powers, plus Italians.
  11. Check out Facebook, it has a Dystopian Wars Trading hub page. You can post for some parts on there.

    alternative turrets

    After I got screwed in an EBay deal I have a Enterprise, Indy, and 3 Lexies with no Turrets nor drop-ons. These alternate ideas may be a life saver in putting those ships to sea, with alternate turrets. BTW I really like the Ozzie triple turrets, those look awesome.

    Retired ships?

    Thank you that helps a lot! i really appreciate your quick responsiveness. I will resist the urge to ask for time lines and such, since I have plenty more to paint anyway. I am glad to know that my ships aren't dead, just aging. I actually like the concept of several ship "generations" all in service at once, very realistic, After all, I am using Uncharted Seas ships to fill in for our equivalent of Pre-Dreadnoughts, what I called "Pre-Sturginium" ships. this makes for some really interesting scenarios.

    Does that reduction to the Georgie boost the Lex? I hate to think any of my ships are obsolete. Well, obsolete in "official" games anyway.

    Retired ships?

    Thanks BP, I emailed Lizzie yesterday so I hope to hear some good news Monday or so. I have been really lucky with Ebay up till now so I am not too upset, just won't buy from that seller again. I do hate that I will have to spend around $35 plus shipping, but thems the breaks.
