I bought DW and the RoTS expansion around this time last year and only played a few games until the fonts and ship design issues caused me to put it on the back shelf. Due to that, I've just started playing Legends more as a noob than as an experienced player.
So, I thought it would be kind of fun to do a Legends AAR as a (mostly) new player with some humor to it because, let's face it, it's going to be a comedy of errors anyway so we might as well just roll with it, right?
I've chosen a 10x10 varied cluster galaxy with 700 stars and 11 races. All the setting are pretty much normal. I have space creatures turned off but Pirates are normal. I've chosen the story events for the original DW but have excluded those from RoTS.
The race I've chosen to play is the Zenox. Why? Because they're giant, fluffy, golden furred, techno geek cats, that's why. 'Nuff said.
The Zenox race has some interesting advantages and some weaknesses. Our strengths are some race specific shield tech and the Technocracy government type. It allows research at a high rate. We'll start with a natural 20% bonus to population growth and happiness. We'll also get a ship maintenance bonus.
Fleet Admirals and Troop Generals will be more of a rare happenstance while Scientists and Ambassador leaders will be more more numerous.
