Now Playing: Burning Empires
I made a post a while back about campaign stakes. BE delivers the everything I was looking for in this post. The World Burner and Technology Burner deliver campaign furniture, campaign stakes are an intrinsic part of the game, and the Infection mechanic is a campaign mechanic if there ever was one.
I'm hoping that BE's commitment to campaign stakes will lead to the kind of epic sci-fi I've long been craving.
One thing I've already noticed about BE and me is that I tend to drastically overthink the game, only to realize that what I'm obsessing about is 90% covered in the existing rules. Almost anything you want to include in the game can be accomplished using building scenes or the technology burner.
