Clash on the Fringe Revised Edition


Welcome to the Fringe!

Clash on the Fringe Revised is a revamped version of Nordic Weasel Games' original Unified Space skirmish rules. Based around platoon level scifi warfare, the game includes profiles and points values for a wide range of sci-fi archetypes like proud alien warriors and killer robots. 19 "races" in total ranging from human sub-types to robots to alien critters. 

Game rules are provided for everything from hover tanks to psionics, along with a selection of scenario rules to build fun encounters. 

While intended for head to head play, solo guidelines and decision tables are included. 

As is a simple campaign upgrade system.

And a  scenario generator with 5 different objectives to pursue.

The game rules remain state of the art with alternate activations and 5 different unit orders. Combat is deadly and energetic with many weapons producing areas of effect, forcing soldiers to actually disperse realistically. Troops must contend with not only casualties but being pinned down or demoralized by fire. Meanwhile talented leaders can compel their troops to greater efforts and heroes can turn the tide of battle if deployed well.

All combat dice are D10s and troops have 5 characteristics to keep track of. The points system not only covers all of the troops and weapons in the book, but includes a formula to calculate your own units (or modify the existing ones). 

All in all, this is a lot of game and is intended to be complete in a single book.

This Revised edition has been tweaked by Jason Smith, streamlining a few awkward mechanics and giving the game a brand new, 21st century facelift with full color miniatures photography from his exquisite collection of science fiction figures, as well as brand new layout taking the game into present day.

These rules are based loosely in the Unified Space setting, though it is NOT directly compatible with Five Parsecs From Home or other rules set within this game setting.

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.
