  1. Core Space Missions: Prison Break

    Mission Monday is back for the first time in 2020! In case you missed the last one, Mission Mondays are where we will be releasing brand new narrative missions for Core Space to download for free.
    Mission Mondays will return on a regular basis. To stay up to date with the latest game content make sure you subscribe to this blog (link in the bottom right corner) and sign up to our newsletter HERE.
    Prison Break
    The 13th mission – unlucky for some, and in this case it’s one of your Traders that has been apprehended by the Galactic Corps. This mission is perfect for inserting into a campaign after one of your Traders has been arrested.
    This mission is also special because it started out as part of last year’s mission design competition. Core Space players around the world submitted their own custom missions and this year they will get to see their ideas in print. Yes, that’s right, all of the Monday Missions so far will soon be collated and published in a brand-new expansion book along with a new narrative campaign and lots of other exciting content. Make sure you are signed up to our newsletter to get the latest on our new Core Space products when they are released.

    This mission was inspired by an idea from Ben Chapple. Thanks Ben. If anyone else has a mission they would like to see featured here, send it in to customerservice@battlesystems.co.uk – we look forward to hearing from you!
    In this mission you will have to break into a Galactic Prison to liberate your crewmate, but it won’t be easy. You’ll need to team up with other crews and all sorts of criminal scum if you want to make it out alive!
    This one was written for the many Core Space superfans out there who have everything – to play it as shown you will need the three main expansions, a set of Detention Cells, and some extra clips. However, like all Core Space missions it’s flexible – if you don’t have the exact components you can switch things out to match your collection :-).

  2. Core Space Missions: Role Reversal

    For the last time in 2019, Mission Monday has arrived again! In case you missed the last one, Mission Mondays are where we will be releasing brand new narrative missions for Core Space to download for free.
    Mission Mondays will return on a regular basis. To stay up to date with the latest game content make sure you subscribe to this blog (link in the bottom right corner) and sign up to our newsletter HERE.
    Role Reversal
    This latest mission is an example of where we took some models and terrain sets as inspiration, built a story around them, and added special rules to turn that narrative into a mission. Core Space is the perfect sandbox to turn any story into a playable game!
    In this case, I wanted to use one of my favourite terrain sets, the Medical Research Lab, and also to get more use out of the new Galactic Corps expansion for Core Space. Of course the Purge are an integral part of most Core Space missions and therefore needed to be included, but as for who was operating on who, I turned that on its head.
    I also took inspiration from some of the new rules being added in a new Core Space expansion coming in 2020, so they are hinted at here…

    To complete this mission, you will need to infiltrate a Purge base and rescue a Galactic Corps director who has been inexplicably abducted by the Purge. To mix it up a bit, I added a mechanic where the Purge start the game on patrol and the Traders can avoid conflict by being stealthy early on. I translated this to the map by making sure there was a route that the Traders could take with minimal chance of Purge contact. This was balanced by the fact that the significant valuables available on this map aren’t on that route, and you will be very close to the Mother if she wakes up! The mission should be fairly easy early on, but all the Purge that arrive will surround the objective, so you need to be quick to rescue the prisoners before there are too many of them!
    To play this mission you will need the Purge: Outbreak Expansion, a Medical Research Lab, and a Purge Reinforcements Booster. You won’t need the Galactic Corps Expansion to play this mission, but you will need it after the game, so this mission could be a good way to build up to adding them into your games.

  3. Core Space Missions: Particular Transmission

    Mission Monday has arrived again! In case you missed the last one, Mission Mondays are where we will be releasing brand new narrative missions for Core Space to download for free.
    Mission Mondays will return on a regular basis. To stay up to date with the latest game content make sure you subscribe to this blog (link in the bottom right corner) and sign up to our newsletter HERE.
    Particular Transmission
    This month the Galactic Corps arrive on the scene. This new Core Space expansion adds the Galactic Corps and Security Wardens as new NPCs, along with the usual host of scenery, equipment, cards, rules and missions.
    Juggernauts are powerful and heavily armed; the hammer of the Corps used to bludgeon and punish any disobedient populace. They are often large men who have been chemically enhanced or have a mutation, normally in favour of size and aggression at the expense of intellect.
    This week’s mission has your Traders break into a Galactic Corps facility. It sounds dangerous, but the rewards are well worth the risk. If you can salvage some parts from their top-of-the-range Particle Transmitter you can upgrade your ship’s teleporter for a sure-fire means of extraction in future games. You might find yourself some valuable contraband in their evidence room too!

  4. Core Space Missions: Underworld Infiltration

    Mission Monday has arrived again! In case you missed the last one, Mission Mondays are where we will be releasing brand new narrative missions for Core Space to download for free.
    Mission Mondays will return on a regular basis. To stay up to date with the latest game content make sure you subscribe to this blog (link in the bottom right corner) and sign up to our newsletter HERE.
    Underworld Infiltration
    This month saw the release of Shootout at Zed’s, a Core Space expansion featuring the criminal gangers, a new type of NPC.
    By now your Traders will be pretty experienced at fighting the Purge, so we thought what better way to show off the gangs than to give them centre-stage? That’s right, this week’s mission does not use the Purge at all!
    Whatever Chunk started life as he is now just a huge, drug fuelled meat-puppet, who does what Zed tells him and questions nothing but his next fix. This unhappy creature is the fusion of both technology and medication at the far end of ‘experimental’. A pet project of Zed’s, Chunk is never far from his side and will fly into a berserker rage at the merest nod from his master.
    You may think gangers are squishier than the Purge so it doesn’t sound like much of a challenge, but there’s a catch. You’re in their territory, and you’re heavily outnumbered from the start. You’ll need to stay cool and try to avoid detection as you search the area for some important documents.

  5. Core Space Missions: Power Outage

    Mission Monday has arrived again! In case you missed the last one, Mission Mondays are where we will be releasing brand new narrative missions for Core Space to download for free.
    Mission Mondays will return on a regular basis. To stay up to date with the latest game content make sure you subscribe to this blog (link in the bottom right corner) and sign up to our newsletter HERE.
    Power Outage
    We recently relaunched our sci-fi terrain range, and we added some brand new kits including the Engineering Sector:

    This set is a perfect centrepiece for themed missions in an industrial area or the inner workings of a space station. Today’s new mission does just that.
    To play this mission you will need the Core Space Starter Set and the Engineering Sector terrain pack.
    The terrain is fully interactive – this mission involves the Traders taking control of the cargo-bot shown above to repair the damaged engine core of a space station by retrieving parts from industrial equipment scattered around the board. Of course it won’t be that simple – the Purge will be bearing down on you from the start!
    If you have the Deluxe Rulebook you can take advantage of some of the advanced rules as well. The Engineering Sector is a two-storey kit, so your Traders can jump (or fall) off of the gantry, and use the upper level as a great vantage point for shooting.

  6. Core Space Missions: Rescue on Daedalus

    Mission Monday has arrived again! In case you missed the last one, Mission Mondays are where we will be releasing brand new narrative missions for Core Space to download for free.
    Mission Mondays will return on a regular basis. To stay up to date with the latest game content make sure you subscribe to this blog (link in the bottom right corner) and sign up to our newsletter HERE.
    Rescue on Daedalus
    This week’s mission is inspired by a short story written back in 2017 during the Core Space Kickstarter. The story is available for download HERE.

    This mission is playable with just the Starter Set, but is designed with some of the advanced rules in mind. The mission is best played with a Game Master (GM) who can shape the narrative and reveal hidden information to the other players during the game. If you intend to play the mission in this way and you are not the one running the game, do not read the mission download – give it to your GM so they can keep things secret.
    By using a GM, Core Space can be played as a light RPG. Instead of controlling a crew themselves, the GM will instead be in charge of all the game’s decisions in order to build a narrative for the other players. The GM reads out the mission briefings, oversees any trades or disputes between players and generally manages the game. Instead of using the game’s AI, the GM will also take control of all the game’s NPCs, including the Purge!
    For more on using a GM, check out the Deluxe Rulebook. You won’t need it to play this mission, but we recommend it anyway!
    Privileged, pompous and entitled, Butler demands the best. His empty swagger hides a deeply insecure man whose fortunes have teetered on the brink more times than he cares to admit.
    In this mission, the Traders have been hired to board the Daedalus, a derelict space ship, and find a data-chip left on board. When they arrive they find that the chip’s owner, a diplomat named Butler, is still alive, and they take advantage of the chance to rescue him and reap the rewards!

  7. Fireball Island: Isle of the Spirit Island

    Adventure module FI1, “Isle of the Fire Spirit,” is an adventure for three to five 5th-level characters that is played on Fireball Island!
    Each player should use one of the figures from the Fireball Island game to represent their character (at least while traveling on the island).
    If there are five party members, your group will need a copy of the Fireball Island: The Last Adventurer expansion to obtain the fifth figure.
    This adventure is written for the fifth edition of the world’s most popular roleplaying game.
    Where the names of monsters appear in bold, and where the names of magic items and spells appear in italics, that’s a sign that you can find more information about those things in your rulebooks.

    Rogue Trader
    Core Space is popping up in retail stores around the world, and more and more people are finding out about the game. So, we wanted another mission that could be played with just the starter set to welcome all of our new Traders!
    Like last time, this mission uses one of the existing maps from the Deluxe Rulebook. These pre-generated maps are very versatile and are a great way to get a game set up quickly.
    In this mission, the Traders have turned bounty hunters, commissioned by the GCC to track down a rogue trader selling defective weaponry on the black market. Civilian injuries are being reported, but more importantly these defects are bad PR for the arms manufacturers…
    Gan’eek – one of the Civilians found in the Core Space Starter Set. Could Gan’eek be the rogue weapons trader? Find out in this mission.

  9. Core Space Missions: Dead Planet

    Mission Monday has arrived again! Just because we’re in the middle of a Fantasy Terrain Kickstarter, it doesn’t mean Core Space gets forgotten! In case you missed the last one, Mission Mondays are where we will be releasing brand new narrative missions for Core Space to download for free.

    Dead Planet
    Just like last time, this mission takes one of the pre-made maps from the Deluxe Rulebook and adds a narrative to it. This mission also features the latest releases:
    Purge: Outbreak Expansion Purge Reinforcements Pack I liked the idea of having spawn points in the middle of the map, which inspired a story about a planet already overrun with the Purge, and from there I decided that the story’s focus would be the Purge Mother:
    Gatherers comprise of the Mother and ‘her’ Spiders. The Mother is a large insect like machine that gathers both living and dead biomass. She will appear towards the tail end of a conflict but is formidable in her own right with a devastating attack. Her spiders are knee high machines with a nasty temperament that are more of a nuisance to a well-armed Trader than an outright threat. However, they will mindlessly protect the Mother from assaults and may be the difference between life and death.
    In this mission, the Traders arrive after the Purge have wiped out a planet in order to salvage what’s left. They know that Purge Gatherers will be in the area assimilating everything that’s left, but that’s what they are here for – the Mother’s core can be used to create a powerful weapon. If the Traders can defeat her that is…
    The pre-generated map was tweaked slightly to suit the mission – one of the airlock points was moved to make sure the Traders started out of the Mother’s line of sight, and the Reactor and Auto-doc from the Purge Outbreak expansion were added.
    This mission will also make use of the Annihilator as well as the Purge Reinforcements, meaning double the number of Purge can be spawned. Be careful out there!

  10. Fireball Island: The Curse of Vul-Kar - cooperatieve modus

    Get the Heart of Vul-Kar back to the Hello-copter before you run out of time!
    Each player must have 6 tokens of a color AND a snapshot of that color before anyone can grab the Heart of Vul-Kar. (If a player walks past the slab with the Heart of Vul-Kar before all players have completed this goal, they do not pick up the Heart.)
    Once every player has 6 tokens of a color and a snapshot of that color, the Heart may be taken as normal.
    Players win when the Heart is carried onto the Hello-copter.
    If the player carrying the Heart is knocked down, return the Heart to its slab next to Vul-Kar.

  11. Core Space Missions: Privacy Concerns

    Mission Monday has arrived again! In case you missed the last one, Mission Mondays are where we will be releasing brand new narrative missions for Core Space to download for free.
    Mission Mondays will return on a regular basis. To stay up to date with the latest game content makes sure you subscribe to this blog (link in the bottom right corner) and sign up to our newsletter HERE.
    Privacy Concerns
    This time we’re going to highlight one of the key features of the Deluxe Rulebook – the guidelines for designing your own missions!
    As well as taking you step-by-step through designing your own scenarios for the game, the book also includes some pre-generated maps that can be used as a starting point. For this mission we’ve taken example map no. 5 from page 65 and assigned a narrative to it.
     

    The large room in the bottom half of the map is crying out to be a focal point of the mission so we decided that getting there would be part of the objective. There are also some Civilians in that big office at the start of the game that could be related to our traders’ goal. The map doesn’t feel like a ship to me, but does make sense as an office complex. With these ideas as a starting point we need to fit a narrative around them, and where better to find a story than the real world! We took a topical theme and ran with it.
    So, in this mission the Traders must infiltrate an office building belonging to one of the biggest tech corporations in the sector. There are rumours that the CEO has been dabbling in new AI technology, but not all is above board… The GCC believe that the massive amount of data required to run this new system is being harvested from unwitting civilians; reviewing their personal calls, private messages and social media without their consent. The GCC do not have the political clout to investigate without proof, but Trader crews have no such concerns!
    Florence is the Trader term for Universal Assets (UA), Galactic Credits or indeed any form of currency. It is a slang word  derived from the term cashflow, leading to the well-known Trader phrase, “to go with the ‘Flo”, in other words to always follow the money. Many Trader captains carry old coins in a superstitious belief that it will help them navigate the dangers of Core Space.
    With the story in place, the rest was easy. The rules for the CEO were added using standard rules from the book – Interacting with terrain and Moving Objects – and the tech prototypes and lack of weaponry were added for a bit of flavour. Seeing as weapons make up the majority of the token pool, removing them from the equation will make this mission far more interesting – there’s a chance to pick up some kit that would be otherwise hard to find, but you need to be tooled up with weapons in advance if you want to survive!
    The final step was balance and fairness, hence the Secure Facility rule. This was added to give the Traders a chance to get to the CEO before the Purge did – it wouldn’t be much fun otherwise!
    This mission uses two sets of terrain, so you will need an additional Cyberpunk Core Set. You’ll also need an additional crew (any will do) to use as Civilians. Don’t forget that with 4-6 crews in play you should add two pegs to the Hostility Tracker each round, and we recommend that you use the Purge Reinforcements pack too.

    The Lost Action Hero
    Last week saw the official release of the Poseidon Crew, led by Captain Oberon Teelac.
    Captain Teelac crashes through life drawing all eyes and derision. Delusional and gung-ho with a penchant for the glory days of Hollywood, he seems to think he is the hero of his own story, recklessly careening into situations and risking everyone’s lives.
    In this mission he finds himself drifting through space looking for a job that will bring him the approval he craves. And then one falls into his lap!
    Theta Station is under attack by the Purge and he’s the only one close enough to save its inhabitants. The more people he can save with his thrilling heroics, the more people can go on to tell his story as the Hero of Theta!

  13. Core Space Missions: The Titan Accord

    Mission Monday has come around again! I really need to stop planning these during public holidays so I can take some time off! Of course it means you guys can spend your day off playing Core Space so it’s not all bad :-P.
    In case you missed the previous instalments, Mission Mondays are where we will be releasing brand new narrative missions for Core Space to download for free. They will return on a regular basis. To stay up to date with the latest game content makes sure you subscribe to this blog (link in the bottom right corner) and sign up to our newsletter HERE.
    The Titan Accord
    This week’s download is here by popular demand. The Titan Accord was a mission created during our Kickstarter to incorporate all of the various stretch goals and add-ons included within the pledge. It now serves as a prequel mission to the soon-to-be-released Purge: Outbreak expansion, detailing the start of the outbreak.

    The mission makes use of the terrain and miniatures from the Shootout at Zed’s and Purge: Outbreak expansions, as well as the Galactic Corps miniatures included within the pledge. All of these products will be released at retail later in 2019, but non-backers can still play this mission in the meantime! As with all Core Space games there is room for customisation, so as long as you’ve got a second set of Battle Systems terrain to make a larger gaming area you can tweak the map to suit your collection and swap out any miniatures you don’t yet have for similar ones that you do.
    Download the mission HERE.

    This week’s free download is a new solo side-mission for your campaigns. If you’re short on supplies between games you can head out into the unknown and see what you can salvage.

    On this occasion you’ve come across a derelict ship floating through space and you venture on-board, but find yourself trapped and surrounded by the Purge!
