    Re: Ideas for a Space Feudalism sort of game

    I've been adding new rules and beefing up the OP on a daily basis. Writing an RP from scratch doesn't happen quickly! :P

    Well the RN plan for a single class of 40 ships at the moment, around 3,000t in size. This would make standardised kit and modularity a more sensible possibility.
