Fireteam: Tactics - Sci-Fi Brick Combat

Suggested Price $0.00

Hey, gamers, brick builders, and everything in-between.

My name is Robert. I am a sci-fi writer and game designer who has previously brought you CONTACT, a role-playing game published by Clockwork Publishing.

For the past two years I’ve been working on a fun project that will merge a couple of my favourite subjects - games, science fiction and most importantly, brick building toys such as the ones made by the Lego Company - into something gamers of all ages can enjoy.

FIRETEAM: Tactics (FTT for short) is a tactical tabletop war game designed for small-scale battles with plastic brick models and figures. The action takes place in the near future where aliens are invading Planet Earth - or, as a matter of fact, anywhere you want it to, as long as there are battles involved. Gameplay is mission-based and allows advancement for any surviving characters, adding RPG-elements into the mix. There is no requirement for measuring tapes or rulers. Most dice rolls in FTT are made with twelve-sided dice.

Except for the hexagon-patterned surface of the battlefield itself, which you can have printed on vynil, canvas, or any other suitable material at your local printer, everything on the table is represented through plastic bricks and compatible figures. Units as well as obstacles and terrain pieces will look amazing, given you are a skilled enough builder and have some Lego or other brick building toys at your disposal. As one might easily figure out, there's a significant advantage over using traditional glued and painted miniatures in a game like this: When something falls and breaks (you know it WILL), there's no reason to suffer a nervous breakdown over the amount of elaborate work that went into it. Instead, putting things back together will take just a couple of seconds.

Just like the building brick toys that inspired me, FTT is a modular system designed with expandability in mind. This means the core document will provide you with mostly basic rules, but other content, such as units, weapons, and missions, is kept separate, making it easier to customize the game and add more content. While you will quickly realize how accessible the creation of your own material is, I probably won’t be able to resist providing you with extra content in the long run, as well. Expect more settings, scenarios, game modes, units, weapons, powers, and rule expansions from me in the future, as my building brick collection grows and evolves.

Download your core rules PDF here at DrivethruRPG for free. I don’t intend to make any money off this project, and I will do my best to keep fine-tuning and updating the rules and other downloadable files according to any feedback I receive.
In addition to the core rules, you will need the following to play the game:

DIY printables: battle mat, stickers, unit cards, and weapon cards – included with your download

Unit spreadsheet: Required for creating custom units by yourself – included with your download

Dice: 4-sided, 6-sided, 8-sided, 10-sided, 12-sided, 20-sided, at least one of each

And last but not least, fitting plastic brick building toys to make the game pieces and matching figures. For the standard flavour the core rules where designed in mind with, I recommend using contemporary or futuristic-looking soldiers, aliens and robots – figures best found in various Lego sci-fi themes, such as “Alpha Team”, “Exo Force”, “Space Police”, “Alien Conquest”, and “Galaxy Squad”. Weapons and gear from third-party manufacturers such as Brickarms or Brickforge work like a charm on these. For best results, customizing figures by mixing and matching their components is key. Obstacles and other terrain pieces are simply built from bricks.

The PDFs don't have any bookmarks, and the security settings prevent creating them. Could you go thru and add bookmarks, or ease off on the security settings on the PDF so we can add our own? Same with Agency vs Invaders.

Don't suppose anyone has identified a standard printer sticker sheet which will work with the status decals? I'm not looking forwards to cutting out that many tiny circles from a full sheet :(

There seems to be no points guide for units of size 1 or 4.

For size 1 I think you could just apply this basic ability the the human-sized profile...
Low Silhouette (costs 15 UPs): Lowers the unit’s default (standing) height level by 1.
And for size 4, this limitation to the Large profile...
Towering (refunds 7 UPs): Increase the unit’s standard (standing) height level by 1.

Hi Robert,
I added a version history that details exactly that. It's a small *.txt file in the download section.

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.
