ConCarolinas 2017: Hull Breach Card Game

ConCarolinas 2017 Gaming will host a variety of Hull Breach card game events.

Please see our gaming schedule through OGRe.  You must be registered for the convention to register for games. Be sure to register for the convention using the special JustUs Productions rate.


About Hull Breach

Hull Breach is a sci-fi cards-and-dice game featuring epic space combat between ships, firefights between Marine boarding parties, and plenty of clever tactics and galaxy-shaking events. You command of a space station belonging to one of our several in-game factions and fight it out with one or more other Commanders to achieve galactic domination! The object of the game is to protect your Station – your home in space – from other Commanders while trying to capture or destroy theirs.  Be warned – they’re trying to do the same thing to you. It’s a tough galaxy and at the end of the day only one Commander gets to remain standing.

Best of all, while we encourage customization and deck-building, this isn’t one of those “collectible”  card games that will have you tearing through randomized foil packs of cards to find the ones you want. Hull Breach plays right out of the box and you’ll know where you can find every card in the game without having to drop a ton of space-cash on boosters or turn to the secondary market to field a competitive deck.

Ships of Clement Sector 12: Broken Hill-class Prospector

From: Gypsy Knights Games

Reviewed by: Ron McClung

Ships of Clement Sector 12: Broken Hill-class Prospector is a RPG Supplement from Gypsy Knights Games.

NOTE:  This is the Traveller edition of the PDF.  Since receiving this, Gypsy Knights has disassociated from the Traveller game system and developed their own called The Clement Sector, the Rules, using an alternate version of the Cepheus Engine Universe.  If they haven’t yet already, they will be converting this supplement to the game system.

The Broken Hill class ship is a medium sized exploratory ship. This ship reminds me of a stripped down version of the Boyne-class replenishment ship (previously reviewed).  The Broken Hill design was born out a recognized need for more than the tradition of merchant ships converted ad-hoc for mining purposes.  It was built to transport raw ore transferred by two cutters and never was designed to land on the surface itself.  It can receive ore from up to four cutters but can carry only two.

From page 3: “There was a deafening din. Echoing through the hull the moment he stepped off the transfer launch, he knew he was on a hardworking ship. There was no mistaking the rumbling of equipment, nor the overwhelming stench of stale sweat, harsh body odor or bitter chemicals from overworked air scrubbers. There was only so much you could do to hide from the smell on a ship like this, but he knew that after an hour he wouldn’t notice anything different from the hundreds of other ships he’d been aboard in his life.”

Out of the dock, the ship is moderately armed with eight points for turrets.  However these are a strong point of customization and older ships armaments may vary.  It also traditionally is equipped with a cutting laser which is not very effective as a weapon.  It is also equipped with an externally docked transfer launch or shuttle.  As the name implies, the Broken Hill prospects for ore in either asteroid belts or other convenient locations where the cutters do most of the work and the main ship positions itself conveniently, prepared to receive ore as its minions find it.

A variation of the Broken Hill class prospector is called the Venture-class troop transport.  As the name implies,  it is marketed as an affordable transport vessel for small system defense forces and private security contractors. Refitted with different weapons and troop transport pods for cargo bays, the Venture class ships utilize the cutters as troop drop ships.

From page 7: “See that point of light, brighter than the rest? That is home for us out here amongst the rocks spinning through the black. Sure we have the cutters, but over there on the Courtland is more room to move, more people to talk to and better meals than old  Crace ever cooked on this tub of a cutter.” Elias Thomas, belter on mining cutter 2 “Annie Joy” Sequoyah Mining Co. Sequoyah c2338 CE

The MRV Paddy Hannan – a Broken Hill class prospector  – is owned and operated by Westralian Metals Company Pty Ltd out of New Perth.  It  is commanded by Senior Ship Captain Moulina Laydaiand travels searching for the new mining potential in the AXO206 system.  Full background are given for two members of that crew as well as encounter tables for both the Broken Hill class as well as the Venture class.

In conclusion, the Broken Hill (as well as it variant) have a lot of potential for adventure.  The players could be a crew of one of the cutters and discover strange new things on the edges of Clement Sector (or whatever areas of space your sci-fi game explores.  This ship is very diverse, allowing for exploratory uses as well as military uses.

There will be Pathfinder Society (PFS) as well D&D 5e Adventurers League (D&D AL).  Landon Hatfield will be handling the schedule for PFS.  Bill Boivin or Tim McCrary will be handling D&D AL.

NON-ORGANIZED PLAY

For those that wish to propose other general play/scheduled game events for ConGregate 2017, the best way to do that is through OGRe.  If the current convention setting for OGRe is ConCarolinas 2017 (see in the upper right hand corner), then click Change Con to change over to ConGregate 2017.

PROPOSE GAMES THROUGH OGRE

Go to ogre.justusproductions.com.  Log in (Make an account if you don’t have one.  If you were a GM for us at any point in time since 2006, you more than likely have an account.).  Click Propose Event on the left menu. Three 4-hour sessions or 12 hours of gaming gets you in free.

ALTERNATE OPTIONS

If you prefer to  , please include as much information about your event as possible.  It is sort of a hassle to go back and forth with questions with so many GMs.  Include game name and any link that will explain the game and/or provide the description, especially if it is a obscure game.  Also include schedule preferences keeping in mind our standard 4 hr slot schedule (although you are not limited to that schedule).

Contact  if you have any business or money questions, or vendor room questions.  Anything gaming schedule or room layout related, ask me.  Thanks again for all you have done in the past and I hope we can work together again.
