Post Project Excelsior Information
Have you guys seen the Excelsior prologue article? What about the launch article? I'm still trying to decide what affiliation I'm backing, myself.

Oh, and if you haven't seen the new Excelsior forum, so check it out!

Nope. We don't have that power. That's a Mael thing.

Weird trivia: I can sticky posts on some boards, but this isn’t one of them.

The "we'll" factor, for me, is not good.

I'm a casual player at best. For you jadzia (one of the hottest people in the galaxy) to put up ways of helping Trek, eek!

The articles linked in the original post do a pretty good job of explaining the basics. Do you have a more specific question?

You've got to try it. It's the best of 2e. 400ish cards, tng vs romulans vs klingons in a Klingon civil war scenario with storyline tournaments. It's great for new players and I'm loving deck building.

Make slipstream great again! 1/2e, halfcelsior, 30-something trek.

Actually, I haven't found an article that explains Excelsior in SHORT, so to get an overview. The excelsior board is filled with content, but I find it rather discouraging to go through them all.

So if someone could explain the goal and how it works in a few sentences, that would be great.

I would contact Fritzinger - as he’s the one overseeing the format now

You're a year too late. Excelsior is dead in the water, that's why you can't find any content.

Fake news. :shifty:

We discussed Excelsior 2019 but I didn't have the time to take over the project... although I thought it was an excellent idea, it didn't have enough interest from existing players.

My efforts now are going into making slipstream a thing where at least other groups play once a year or so.
