Fleets At War! is a new space
wargame set in the Imperium
Chronicles RPG universe.
at War! is a tactical
starship combat game played on the floor
or a large table with cardboard counters
representing capital ships, fighters, and
other space craft. Simplified game
mechanics let players engage in small
skirmishes all the way up to large-scale
battles involving dozens of ships.
- Three factions: the
Imperium, the Magna Supremacy, and the
- 235 full-color ship
counters + additional counters for
fighters & missiles
- 27 Stat Cards (one for
each ship class)
- 10 Scenarios introducing
players to the game
The IMP System
Fleets at War! uses
the IMP System that reduces the number of
die rolls necessary during play. All
other calculations are done by referencing
a chart of two opposing attributes (ex.
Damage vs. Armor) to find a result.
The goal of this system is to speed up
play and allow for large-scale battles.
Each counter in the game
represents a single starship or a flight
of four to five fighters. An inch
equals approximately 0.2 miles, or a mile
equals 5 inches. Each game turn
equals roughly 2 to 3 minutes.
Each class of ship (i.e.:
heavy cruiser, destroyer, frigate, etc.)
has a one- or two-sided card listing all
the stats for that class, including its
offensive and defensive capabilities.
