And another snippet :) Procedural planet generation consists of several rolls like Planetology, Biosphere and as shown above here: Geology. Lots of land, low windspeeds, little rainfall, this planet is going to have big deserts.

Triumph of the Reich

25 mile hexes europe map – may 1941 start – 35 page manual

Designer ‘icym’ created what can only be called a game within the Advanced Tactics game. The Triumph of the Reich scenario is made for 2 to 5 human players that take control of up to 15 regimes including Germany, USA, USSR, Turkey, Vichy and Persia. Specialized rules include: V-Weapons, Submarine warfare in the Atlantic, scientists, storms, partisans, Atlantic Wall, mines, revised research rules, special actions cards and much much more.

For full info please read the Triumph Players Guide PDF.

My recommendation is that if you like PBEM you should try this scenario out. Download it over here.

For more info and giving your feedback to the designer, please hop over to the Matrix Forums.

Shadow Empire Design Snippet #7

Snippet #7: Alien atmospheres
What do you know? We have reached snippet #7. This one showing that each planet has a unique atmosphere. The planet we see here (Aselir Secundus) has alien life, but the type is not compatible with earth life. With no oxygen in the atmosphere all humans will have to wear breathing apparatus and live and work in sealed locations.
