  1. Per the post I just made to the ReaperCon thread the Beta Docs and Cards will be the official addendum and cards for the ReaperCon tourney. As has been pointed out we missed the window, and are two close to the event for us to push new cards.

  2. Due to some delays we are going ahead with use of the Beta docs for this Friday's tournament. Plans to push out the updated official docs were delayed to much to make it reasonable to you the players to use doc's released this close to the actual event. We will though use this as an opportunity to field test the cards in a harsher environment then some of the games you've previously played and review if changes to the scope or roles of those cards need to be made.


    If you are unhappy with this situation you may discuss it with me in length this weekend and I will express my regrets and apologies to you then.


    Data Cards


    Rules Errata/Addendum

  3. Cheryl isn't running the tournament. I am and I will take into account the delay in getting the final cards out.


    If you base your army lists off the current beta cards you will be with in 98% of the final costs as no major changes are being made just tweaks found during the beta.

  4. If the Chronicles are official the Datacards will be official as well and the new official batch will be posted as soon as I get the go ahead from the powers that be. Most of the changes in the new cards are minor tweaks and fixes found during the beta phase there should be no surprises.

  5. The cards that are currently published are not the final cards, thus the Beta markings on them. We will push updated final cards upon approval and in theory with plenty of times for folks to make force adjustments.


    Also some items marked as errors by beta testers were in fact not errors, but changes to the card. I am double checking everything again though just in case.

  6. This is more me questioning how things tend to go than me asking for immediate action (as I think the Mil-net folks are doing an amazing job given that they have day jobs). Is there any suggestion of if, and when, the RC08 rules will be integrated into the larger rulebook which can then be downloaded again? I wouldn't even mind doing it myself if I could get the rulebook and RC08 in Word.


    No time table yet


    As a side question, when the beta cards are finalized will they be the only ones listed on the forum and on Reapergames?


    That is the current plan, which of course is always subject to change by those higher up on the food chain.

  7. The theory was with modern communications and real time data starting to emerge for modern soldiers the tactical spacing for units is going to be at a point in the CAV world where it would be difficult to depict on a normal game table. Maybe some rules for REALLY big games spanning floors of space might address it but for most tables even the huge ones StubbDog is expert at building you wont' need to worry about it.

  8. The person that started the rumors about a Sci-Fi game, by publishing it in a rule book, is no longer here.

    The possibility of a Sci-Fi game in the future? Extremely high.

    Would it be called Aicom or anything like that name? Probably not.


    AICom or Advanced Infantry Combat has always been the working title for the SciFi skirmish game set in the CAV universe. Thus the new scifi grunts being released in the chronoscope range were originally called AICOM grunts.


    The person who placed it in a book was using a standard term for a standard project


    Ed Discusses AICOM not slotting into the current rules set for CAV2


    Greens for 07-11-04 clearly show the prototype grunt, Aicom Ritterlich Infantry is shown on 05-17-05


    Please don't say it was a Rumor reaper customers and fans are smarter then that.


    Will the working title of AICom be changed? Ya probably it was only ever a working title.


    Did I probably just ruin my chance to help out when the RoTD project is stable enough to develop the new project , probably yes

  9. When are we gonna see the new data cards for the kitbashes?


    I'd say soon but i'd get shot. I'll try to fire those up tonight or tomorrow for everyone. Very busy time of year for me.



    As for the Cougar, to lower its points we would have to drop DT's which would then make it easier to kill, thus less sustainable on the battle field. There is no way to arbitrarily drop its cost, it costs what it does because of the stat lines presented.

  10. Well, i have to admit the stat card for the Emporer is just kinda stpid ridiculous in my opinion.


    No wonder you wanted to wait and post these cards last.


    I'm sorry you feel that way about the Emperor, But we feel the card now reflects the beast it is supposed to be.


    As for releasing the Rach cards last, it actually had nothing to do with that, I wanted to surprise the rach players with the two brand new cards for them.

  11. Ya the hostile intent stuff is awesome, I saw some out at GenCon and his magnetic base adapters work great for CAV aircraft.


    Right now about the only starship game i've found being played with any regularity in the DFW area is Fed Commander. But they are all using the paper counters.

  12. you've got a good point we had a diffrent view of own when they were first put together. I'm just afraid that changing it now might cause more confusion then it solves so at this time well chalk it up to a game qwerk and move on


    I know where your coming from though I had to travle to flint and argue with the rental car folks that yes they did have to get me a specific make of rental car to visit my client
