$14.99

Pirates, homicidal robots, alien traders and marines in space.

Clash on the Fringe takes you back to the halcyon days of military space adventure, but through the lens of modern game design.

Designed to be playable with any miniatures in your collection, Clash on the Fringe plays quickly and with minimal record keeping.

* * * * *

Features include:

Integrated turn sequence where both players act.

Robust combat system that encourages tactical finesse.

Reaction fire, psionics, leadership skills.

Tools to build a wide variety of units, vehicles, 13 alien species, droid infantry and local wildlife.

Scenario rules ranging from dangerous plant life to ice planets and wandering monsters.

Fully featured points system or make your own scenario!

A background setting that sits in the background. Use it when you want, adapt your own when you please.

Consistent rules that apply to all units. Infantry, vehicles and monsters all follow the same basic concepts. You don't have to learn three different games at the same time.

D100 tables for quick plot inspiration!

* * * * *

If you remember the days of early science fiction wargaming: Of exploring a universe filled with danger and excitement, of a time when everything did not have to be depressing and dark, when strange aliens could rub shoulders on the tabletop, Clash on the Fringe is for you.

Grab those dusty old miniatures that have sat abandoned for 20 years and give them a new life.

Just remember: Regret nothing!

Hi there! Looks promising, I've got a small question before commiting to buy. How well does it handle big robots/small mecha? Im looking for a ruleset to play with small gangs (10-20 guys aside) like your ruleset aims for, but with the support of 1 or two robots by side (nothing too big too. Think of them as Troll sized)

The vehicle rules include both walkers and striders (longer legs, maneuvers differently) and they can be made assault-capable.

The "Droid" unit class covers man-sized ones but you can make a walker with perfect morale and do just fine.

There's also an option for "mech suits" (think power armour about twice the size of a normal trooper) which works great for the intermediate "support droid" roles.

If I may ask what is the biggest difference between Clash on the Fringe and No Stars In SIght?

You may! :)

The differences are both philosophical and mechanical.
On a philosophical level, No Stars is intended as more of a military game. You are constantly pre-occupied with how far you can push your squad leaders, the difficulty of moving while in sight of enemy forces and handling wounded troopers.

Clash is aimed at more of a space-adventure feel, with lots of weird aliens and heroic stuff going on.

To use games as examples, No Stars is closer to something like Stargrunt or Tomorrow's War, while Clash is very much a love-letter to games like Laserburn and Rogue Trader.

Mechanically, Clash is a more conventional game (roll to hit, roll to kill, roll morale) with a few twists in the turn sequence, while No Stars has a pretty innovative system.

Both include points systems.
Hope that helps!

I did forget to ask if either one of the systems support solo/co-op play.

They do. It's not a full "AI" system, but more a collection of tools to help you make decisions and introduce some random factors into your games.

I'd say, NSIS is probably more solo-friendly of the two, but you should do fine with either of them.
One of the most prolific Clash beta testers ran all his games solo and didn't have a problem.

There's campaign rules in both too ;)

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
