A Sky Full of Ships

ZIP File

All Ships to Battlestations

Instead of just being a mere captain of a few ships, wouldn't you rather take the place of an admiral, commanding during those great fleet battles, those most dramatic of moments when entire empires stood or fell. If so, 'A Sky Full of Ships' just might be the rules for you. Using simple, fast-moving game mechanics, ASFoS attempts to portray the important aspects of huge fleet engagements without becoming too bogged down in time-consuming detail. They're for those players willing to sacrifice some complexity to achieve a fast-moving, playable, and most importantly, FUN game.

The generic nature of the rules will allow you to play in whatever setting you prefer, using any starship miniatures from any background at all. Invent as much or as little of your own universe, or borrow from the scifi background of your choice. These rules will work equally well for either.

All that is required for play is included in this single 40 page book - ship design, basic movement and combat rules, optional rules such as electronic warfare, special weapons and technological levels, as well as scenarios, sample fleets and more.
Admiral, your fleet awaits.

Nice set of large scale Space combat rules. Runs smoothly, plays quickly and has loads of fan created ships for Babylon 5, Star Trek (all eras), Battlestar Galactica, Starblazers, Full Thrust and more. Big thumbs up from me! [...]

Decent set of rules for large-scale battles, but lack of chrome in the basic rules might turn off some players. Though the advanced rules have plenty of options, they're an odd assortment of stuff. Fighter rules were particularly confusing, unfortunatel [...]

ASFoS is the best large fleet action game I have played. The rules are easy to understand and rely on simple mechanics for gameplay. There is heaps of support for the game at the yahoo group and various websites. The rules are generic enough to adapt [...]

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.
