A Sky Full of Ships 2nd Edition

Instead of being a mere captain of a few ships, wouldn't you rather take the place of an admiral, commanding during those great fleet battles, those most dramatic of moments when entire empires stood or fell.  If so, 'A Sky Full of Ships' just might be the rules for you.  Using simple, fast moving game mechanics, ASFoS attempts to portray the important aspects of huge fleet engagements without becoming too bogged down in time consuming detail.

A Sky Full of Ships is designed to be an easy, fast moving set of rules for large scifi fleet actions.  Everything required for play is included in this single 58 page book - movement and combat rules, a detailed ship construction system, optional rules such as special weapons, fighters, electronic warfare and technological levels, as well as scenarios, sample fleets and more. They also include a short rules summary in a printer friendly format.

ASFoS is a generic set of rules, there is no specific background or ship designs forced upon the user.  The generic nature of the rules will allow you to play in whatever setting you prefer, using any starship miniatures at all from any background.  Invent as much or as little of your own universe, or borrow from the sci-fi background of your choice.  Playable with as few ships per side as you like, or as many ships as you own, these rules allow large games to be played to a finish, on an average-sized gaming table, within several hours.

They're for those players willing to sacrifice some complexity to achieve a fast moving, playable, and most importantly, FUN game.

Admiral, your fleet awaits.

Original electronic
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.
