Description:

There has been a trend over the last few years of combining a tabletop miniature game with an RPG setting.  This is nothing new and goes all the way back to TSR's Chainmail and D&D.  Still if something works, don't fix it, so with that in mind Avalon has been working on a system and setting that encompasses all of our Sci-Fi games, offering one setting as the base for a tabletop system, RPG and board games alike.  Now we have been doing this all along with Battle Armor, using what we have developed in that Mini-Game to build a whole Sci-Fi universe.  Along side Battle Armor, our Space Armada system, Zero-G S&G genre setting and Future Wars all use the same Sci-Fi universe.  When we put together Infinite Futures, we also tied it into this setting and will soon have a setting book for that RPG called the Fringe.

As we have the background and setting all worked up, its natural to of course use it for this next game, which is what you hold here, a small skirmish style system which can be used to fight tabletop battles in the Fringe universe.  We also decided to tie the whole thing to Infinite Futures, and thus allow you to work the RPG into the tabletop game.  Thus if your adventuring crew should happen to get involved in a small scale battle, well you can convert them easily into the Nova Blast system.  As all the creatures, factions and forces will also be a part of the Fringe, it's easy to link both game systems together.

Now to tie it all even more closely together, Avalon has been in the process of working up a paper model and figure line of products.  So of course we opted to use these figures in Nova Blast.  The system will thus come with stand up figure flats for easy use, or if you are a die-hard model maker, you can go and seek out miniatures for your games.

This synergy between systems, product lines and other promotions, will hopefully allow Avalon to really make a big push for Nova Blast and other products using the setting and give you a great time gaming in this setting.

The core edition of Nova Blast comes with...

*  The Core Rules, a 30 plus page full color book, fully illustrated and offering plenty of examples of play. 

*  The Fringe Setting Book, offering information on the setting, the factions and enough game crunchy stuff to get started playing right away.

*  A Components Book, with all the stuff needed to play the game and enough game components to start a battle using the Terran Marines and Too-Nia forces. 

Each month thereafter new expansions will arrive, with source books for each of the factions, new rules, new scenarios, objectives, and gaming fun.

Further expansions to the game will add psyche powers, condition cards and environmental effects to core system.

Avalon Games is happy to offer this great game and we hope you will enjoy playing over and over again.

Be sure to visit out web site and join the discussion on the forum, where we will answer rule questions, offer free stuff and expand even more on the system.

This game is a decent game, however there are as many negatives as there are positives. I couldn't help but feel that I was being overly generous with my rating, but felt a "3" would have been too harsh. The artwork in this set is very unbalanced. [...]

Indeed there is, as the Introduction says, nothing new under the sun. People have been mixing wargames/miniature skirmish with traditional character-based role-playing from the very beginning of the hobby, whether it is deliberate (such as role-playing [...]

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.
