Ahoy,

Looking at ideas to pull off Honroverse tabletop (remote or in person) RPG. Really was looking for a system. I have played the new Star trek Adventures, and I like how that abstracts ship actions as something people/characters do, with the ship as a tool/assisting character.

I was also thinking that could be done via FATE/FAE. Anyone have any experience with this sort of thing?

Are you on the TRMN Gaming Discord server? Pretty sure they are working on making it possible to play SITS virtually.

It depends on what you're looking for. If you just want a ship combat simulator, then your best bet is to probably use SITS, since it's designed to use the Honorverse material. If you're wanting a more full-bodied RPG experience, GURPS can probably accommodate you. It's designed to be infinitely adaptable and can be used in any setting.

Those are all books that would probably get you what you want. There are some other smaller ones that could also be used if you're trying to expand details. It would take some work making the adaptations to GURPS terminology and such, but that would have to be done with any game system you used that wasn't natively designed for the Honorverse. I haven't spent a lot of time on the sci-fi side of GURPS since 3rd edition, but I'm happy to help if you go that route. There's also an active online community you can pose rules questions to. There are a number of military folks on there who know all the stats and functions of modern weaponry and love importing them into GURPS.

I've been thinking with the ups and downs a lot of people have had playing Starfinder - trying to make a home game based on the Starfinder rules.

I think they are nearing finishing touches on Honorverse RPG book as well. saw some pics around Manticon that had the rough version at the Final Sword Production table.

If you want classic Tabletop RPG experience, I'd wait for the official release of the Honorverse rulebook they're creating, personally.
Other than that, sounds like a great idea, and would be nice to se this going.
