StarDust - Revised Edition Now Available
I've worked hard over the last few weeks to get StarDust, my space combat game, updated and tweaked. I put the wraps on it last evening. Ta da! So, StarDust 1.1 is now officially available for purchase and download on lulu.com. Since I can't really tell by looking, can any of my readers who purchased it previously verify that the revision is indeed a freebie? If it isn't, email me at startdustgame (at) outlook.com and I'll send a copy to you.
The update isn't night and day different. I did remove the scenarios because I was unhappy with the graphics. I'll probably re-do them later. There are a handful of new weapons and special equipment items. I fleshed out a new fleet and tidied up a few loose ends.
If you haven't played StarDust, I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a fun space combat game. It's not designed as a competitive, balanced game system like you may be used to with GW, Spartan, Battlefront or most other publishers. You can use whatever miniatures you own, set up a scenario and commence blasting away! You will need a handful (as many as 10 perhaps) d8 dice. One of these days I'll commission Chessex or someone to make custom eight-siders with the StarDust cross on the "8" face and sell them for a ridiculous markup!
