    Vetko and Siffan used the classic Lasers, Close and Spread tactic. It was working quite well. Even though this meant that the enemy fighters were hitting back harder, that was more than offset by their vulnerability to the power of the Lazor.

    With all ships damaged, nothing could stop as a wave of fighters swooped in to mop-up a clean win for the allied forces of the Dark Lord. The first of the Twenty had fallen.

    Chapter 1.4
    The Inverse Square Law


    Helios Light- what an appropriate name for a showcase of why one should work with the powers of science rather than fight it.

    The aggressor: General Ordin. The defender: Doctor Point.

    The battle: Ordin's Raiders score a hit on enemy ships. But what is to come?

    Ordin enjoys a few more hits as the Doctor begins to pull some interesting Maneuvers...

    While strategically the battle of Helios Light was only a marginal victory, it would leave an permanent mark on the handful of survivors on the Ordin side, who would allude to it as "The Battle That Redefined the Meaning of Ouch."

    Chapter 1.5
    The Inverse Square Law, part 2


    Here is something to think about

    Avoid looking directly into the Sun.
    While the past War had been marked by great do-or-die attacks, this one began with a series of raids.

    In this case, two privateers, Trokair and Anita Blake, were on an Imperial commission from the Basileus Naviwinat himself to boldly go where none has gone before, meet interesting people, and kill them.

    Lured by the danger of the Moon of the Tentacle Demons, they maneuvered their frigates to the moon of Axis, where oddly enough, nine warship-shaped appendages were emerging. Neither side fired a shot as they both maneuvered into place facing one another..

    132 hits?? How many lasers did Atragon have? And that is at a normal distance here!!

    It's almost a miracle Kassi had survivors in this inferno.

    EDIT: The Kass-Atragon battle was fought with both fleets Close and Spread, but I goofed. Not like it'd make any difference in the outcome.

    -------------------------------------------

    Here is something to think about

    If 132 hits is Lazorgeddon, what's 280?

    Chapter 1.6
    The Party's Over


    Here is something to think about

    Peace is one big waste of equipment.
    With the population of Elvis quickly conscripted into the vast latrine-cleaning brigades of Vetko's army, the industrial resouces of the five worlds were split up, three to the Lord, two to Polly.

    Word of the sack spread quickly to the rest of the galaxy, which had escaped the conflict for now.

    ---------------------------------------

    Got stuff to do now, I'll post the data chart in a few hours.

    That was considered, but not accepted as rule. Read further in the sign-up thread; it started out as 2 uses, +50% each use, max 100%, and 2x damage against; ended as 1 use, +100%, and no double damage. But it can't be used in round 3 or round 6.

    And i would say, from doing a bit of testing the spreadsheet, Maneuvering with lasers at close range can do a LOT. I saw a fleet of 5 titans in one of my test, against a larger fleet, do over 200 damage...

    That is correct.

    The new Maneuver rules, by the way, allow for up to a 16x modifier for maneuvered double close range lasers against fighters. Pain.
