How well does this system work as a sort of beefed up "Five Parsecs with a d10"? That is - one side has all individual heroes and the other side is a standard force of equivalent points?

I found this game from a link here on WGV from Five Leagues 2e, and I like what I see so far. THANK YOU for a four-page reference that I can print at 4up and slip into the back cover of my binder. Is there a roster/campaign sheet anywhere for this game, and how "current" is it with the evolution of your game-designer brain?

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)

I know this is super old but I wanted to give anyone looking at these systems a fresh take.

So having played the same scenario in both systems (actually using No End in Sight) to compare, I can say this:

Scenario: Commandos must raid and search an insurgent stronghold.

Quick synopsis:

No end in sight: Commandos had a slow methodical approach to the stronghold. Lots of each side getting pinned and stalling. Commandos suffered from poor activation rolls so they were stuck for a large portion of the game. The group of insurgents not protecting the stronghold were able to move up on the constantly pinned commandos. After 6 phases the commandos just couldn’t get into the compound. However, commandos did eliminate 5 of the twelve insurgents without a causality themselves. But ultimately had to call of the operation.

Clash on the Fringe: By the second round the commandos squad assaulting the compound had eliminated two insurgents from the roof. I am...See more

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.
