An introductory set of rules to introduce new players to Starfire system of starship combat. Starfire is a table-top tactical and campaign wargame originally based on the novels by David Weber
STARFIRE is an original game of starship combat and interstellar empire building. Written by Steve Cole in 1976, the game system was expanded in the 1980's and 1990's by David Weber, based on the books he wrote with Steve White. In 2000 GALACTIC STARFIRE and in 2004 ULTRA STARFIRE were released with a focus on game balance and multiplayer campaigns. But in 2012 the current version, SOLAR STARFIRE, was released along with the beginnings of a new STARFIRE history.
STARFIRE's unique combat system allows players to build their own fleets of starships and annihilate those fleets in only a few hours play time. Fans of 4X (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, eXterminate) games will enjoy that STARFIRE has a campaign system that allows you to build an alien empire, control every facet of its development, and attempt to conquer a galaxy full of players and/or non-players alike.
