Five Parsecs Bug Hunt 

Five Parsecs Bug Hunt

Maybe they don't show up on infra-red at all..

* * *

Welcome to Five Parsecs Bug Hunt.

Roll up your characters and delve into a solo campaign game fighting horrid aliens, completing objectives and hoping to hang on while the evac shuttle arrives.

Your characters will progress from mission to mission (if they survive) gaining experience and reputation, while engaging in procedurally generated missions against a wide array of alien enemies.

In each mission, you will attempt to complete random objectives, while taking advantage of tactical locations which may give you benefits such as blocking off approaches or distracting enemies. Enemies approach using a "blip" system to keep you guessing.

Combat mechanics are simple, easy to learn and can be picked up in a turn or two. 

Bug Hunt is built for solo and campaign play from the ground up, instead of these factors being tacked on as an afterthought. 

This is a second edition of the original rules, containing countless updates, tweaks and improvements to make the game faster and more fun. The game uses the same game engine as the popular Five Parsecs From Home and your characters from Bug Hunt can even muster out and become characters in your space adventure campaigns.

* * *
The rules provide:

- Character creation.

-  Campaign rules including injuries, experience and random events.

- 6 types of mission objective.

- 5 difficulty settings.

-11 support options to help your characters, from survey teams to engineers.

- 16 alien critters to fight, each with their own profile and special ability. 

Action Stations: Atlantic - Core Rules

Action Stations: Atlantic


ACTION STATIONS: ATLANTIC --CORE RULES is a tactical naval wargame rules system set in the World War II era.  Individual warships (presented on counters at approx. 1/4500 scale) are rated in a variety of offensive and defensive categories. Scenarios recreate several naval encounters, such as River Plate, the Rawalpindi incident, Denmark Strait, and others, involving German and British and French fleets.  Action Stations: Atlantic is a complete introductory level game that simulates naval combat in the World War II era, using a slightly modified Battleship Captain 3rd ed. standard rules game system.

Warships (battleships, battlecruisers, pocket battleships, heavy cruisers, light cruisers, destroyers, destroyer escorts, frigates, corvettes, torpedo boats, armed merchants, merchants) are provided.  Playability and historicity are emphasized, with small or large battles playable to completion in an evening.  Each game turn represents 10 minutes, and one inch on your floor or tabletop represents 500 yards.

Standard rules and all game tables are included in the 48-page illustrated rule book, along with game tables, dozens of ship counters and game markers, designer's notes and historical commentary.  This is a complete rules system, and does not require anything else (apart from dice and playing space) to play.  This introductory edition does not include advanced or optional rules but these may be incorporated from Battleship Captain 3rd ed.

Also included are a set of four ACTION STATIONS: ATLANTIC ship counter sheets (#1 through #4) containg over 75 ships, 172 game markers, and reference card presented in a convenient format.

Available for purchase separately is the ACTION STATIONS: CONVOY module that contains additional scenarios, 12 counter sheets (over 470 ships), and which is fully compatible with Action Stations: Atlantic --Core Rules.

Action Stations: Atlantic -- Core Rules is now available in PDF format.  Designer: Gary Graber.  Publisher: Minden Games.
