So you plan to play EVE Offline through the internet, turning it into EVE Online?
Joke aside not a bad idea if you do. I sometimes watch internet based tabletop roleplay session videos and they can be a lot of fun even just to watch and I know there are board game sessions of similar kind as well so might worth setting up with people and maybe even recording it and uploading to youtube or something.
Btw @Wadiest_Yong an ISD has restored the second post (which has the golden die reference) thus you now can check it out if you want.
I think @Iceacid_Frostpacker was talking about this game. Since this is a crowd funded game made in Szczecin, Poland. It should be available between next week and never. Here is their track record. It seems like a pretty stable company. You can hit the “Notify me on Launch” button then they will send you a notice, when it gets ready to ship.
Do you think people will be asking if they can bring their Drakes?
I would just take a knife(or strong scissors) to chop off the stands so it is just the ships
Will your char need to train skills?
Will everyone have the same “class”, and you can scoot all the ships around(read as: fly) or will it be like DnD where there are different classes and each one has its strengths and weaknesses, i think how that would be implemented is you decide what role you play: logi, ewar, damage, indy, etc… and your char gets a bonus to those ships and can kinda play the other roles, but really badly(pretty much the same as in current pixel eve, choose what you wanna do and train accordingly)
Will there be gaming sessions at future Fan Fests where it is a bunch of people per map/world/instance (or whatever it is gonna be called) instead of just some buddies you know irl in your living room?
Because it is all offline and what happens will kinda stay in your little version of the universe, the big alliances won’t really be able to do anything, unless lore from Pixel EVE is carried over into the board game (I guess the players would get to decide if they will pay attention to current Pixel EVE lore when playing Not Pixel EVE)
