Hey Folks,

Our group has run a short campaign using Star Wars miniatures and a few home-brew rules for advancement in the past and it was incredibly fun. I'd like to do so again, so I'm checking to see if there's interest in an ongoing series of Star Wars miniatures scenarios that form a campaign on Vassal. I noticed that the SWM CE rules seem to be built to do this, so I'm going to use them.

What Eras/type of stories would interest you? I've got one player so far who says he'd like to play a Trandoshan Fringer of some sort, so we may be leaning toward a Fringe campaign, though honestly I'm open to type of scenario the players want to do. Anybody up for a SWM CE campaign?

Possibly yes. I will put myself down as a maybe.

Will you be using the D10 DamageSYSTEM? I strongly recommend it.

If you need a forum to host all the character sheets and the story PM me.

I'll jot you down as a maybe then Fool. Are there any Eras you'd especially like to play in or any particular types of stories you'd like to explore?

As for optional rules, we'll decide which ones we would like to use as a group. I'm of the mind that that sort of decision is as much of a player call as it is a GM call.

If you're gonna do a SWM CE campaign on Vassal, then I'd recommend using the SW RPG mod that I developed. It allows you to use more active players (up to 12 + GM rather than SWM's 4 total), it gives you better options for map-building (ie, the GM can pre-build the map beforehand and gradually reveal it to the players as they explore), and it has all the functionality that the SWM mod does.

I think it's fairly easy to learn once you read the instructions. If you're interested and have any questions, then let me know. I love SWM CE...I hope you get a good group! :saber:

Raylinthegreat, sorry I should have been more clear. SWM CE stands for Star Wars Miniatures Campaign Edition. In a Nutshell, it's a system written by Fool which allows you to play Star Wars Miniatures in an RPG-like manner rather than as the skirmish game it's written to be. The rules are essentially identical to the SWM rules with a few minor changes and several optional rules you can utilize if you want to do so.

This article Here will give you a lot more info.

Here is its official message boards. It has download links to SWM CE and all its supplements.
