In Harm's Way Tactics: Character Sheet

For In Harm's Way Tactics, here's the character sheet players can use. I based it loosely on the one from for my Imperium Chronicles RPG.

Another Sample Page: Warlock Ind. Boss

Here's another page, this one showing a Warlock Industries boss. Btw, I'm getting close to starting play testing so if you're interested in taking part, let me know...

In Harm's Way Tactics: Three Ways to Play

In Harm's Way Tactics can be played in at least three ways: skirmish, missions, and campaigns. The first two are available (with examples) "out of the box", while campaigns will be sold separately.

Skirmishes are stand-alone battles similar to the scenarios from my Fleets at War! and Fighter Wing games. Missions are more like mini-adventures with greater detail and which may take longer than a single session to play. Campaigns, on the other hand, will involve linked missions and/or story arcs. They will also include character advancement by increasing attributes and the number of abilities that can be used as they complete missions.

Another Counter Sheet

Here's another counter sheet, this time showing some of the larger 2" counters. Note, I changed the numbers (incl. the ones on the previous sheet) so they'd have a white outline, which makes them easier to read. I'd love any feedback if you have any!

In Harm's Way Tactics: Counter Sheet (Low Rez)

Here's the first sheet of counters for In Harm's Way Tactics. The top row are the six playable classes, while the rest belong to the Ougluk faction. Note, since this is a low resolution image, it looks a little crappy...

In Harm's Way Tactics: Mission Map Two (Slave Pens)

The second mission will take place in the Ougluk slave pens. This map features columns, stairs, a fighting pit, and several cells (with bars). It's not as colorful as the previous map, but hopefully you'll like it. I'd appreciate any feedback you'd care to give!

In Harm's Way Tactics: the Magician

I'm at the point in writing the In Harm's Way rulebook that I've begun working on the two missions that will be included. This map is from one of them, a Warlock Industries starship called the Magician...

In Harm's Way Tactics: Character Backgrounds

As part of In Harm's Way Tactics, each class is represented by a named character. I'm including descriptions/backgrounds for each character to give the game more flavor. Here are two of them: Lord Newcastle (Officer) and Vanya Templa (Psi Mage).

In Harm's Way Tactics: Stat Cards

In Harm's Way Tactics will include optional stat cards (see below). I'm using the same design for these as I did with my idea for an Imperium card game. While that project is on indefinite hold, at least I can cannibalize some of it for IHWT.

In Harm's Way Tactics: Counters

After taking a short break after publishing Planetary Defense, I started doing some more work on In Harm's Way Tactics. The game will include 1" tokens/counters (see below). I've included here two of the player classes (Assassin and Grunt) and two samples from each faction (Ougluk and Warlock Industries).

Btw, I'm also working on a short story focusing on a heavy cruiser, the Baron Braunfels, and its captain in the Imperial Navy. It's called "Newcastle: The Slave Pens of Oras Dracilor". It's an idea I've been thinking about for awhile so we'll see how it turns out. :-)
