I Could help you with that if you want, as i am a fairly experienced player. And to be frank, i could give you a solid ship design tool aswell if you think that will at least be any good. Though for the purpose of walking you through the battle system we will use standard ships in the core rule book/high guard. Though to get the basics of space combat i would recommend we just practice with 'small craft' (aka regular ships) as in most games there will almost never be a capital on capital fight or even a capital fight on regular ship
I have watched Seth's stuff (I really like his Cthulhu stuff, some of it is hilarious), but there is nothing like hands-on learning. At least for me. Gordon519, just send me a link and we can discuss a time.
