Episode 5: Starship Combat…In Space!

Finally earning our show name.

Space combat in the Starfinder system is played on a hex grid map. SO… For the first time since this group’s inception, we are TRULY Hex Grid Heroes. Shortly after setting out for Verces the On The Morrow intercepted a distress signal. There they find a cruiser being harassed by a couple of small starfighters. So these Starfinders decide to harass right back.

Since my players and I are still new to all the mechanics of starship combat I did them and you a favor by streamlining the process. As they get comfortable with it I will be implementing the standard rules, as well as the new roles coming into play with the new book release. 

Special thanks to the delightful folks over at Little Realms for swapping promos this week. They are a highly entertaining D&D 5e podcast that I just adore. Give them a listen!

Another special thank you to long-time friend of the pod Tim Demeuse of the LCP DND podcast. He’s the DM over there and gave me the battle music you hear once we fire up the laser cannons on the ship. He’s dabbling with some dubstep and I got a real kick out of it. Expect more from him as we continue.
