The much anticipated sequal to the department - The Ghosts of Hefei kickstarter has finally launched.  This is a great miniatures gaming system based on the Goalsystem skirmish miniature gaming engine.  I highly recommend these rules as they have proven to be very flexible and suit many genres.  With a small amount of tweaking, this system can also be used for Traveller combat games.  I am hoping that I can soon share some of the mechanics and suggested Goalsystem Traveller mechanics that I had been working on as of late.

The Goalsystem is the engine behind The Ghosts of Hefei and many other successful games such as: Blasters and Bulkheads (Sci-Fi - $9.95), Super System 3rd Edition (Supers), Goalsystem Delves (Fantasy - $15.00), Chaos in Carpathia (Historical./Fantasy - $10.95), The Department (Sci-Fi - $11.95), Chaos in Ciaro (Pulp Adventures - $10.95), Chaos on Chronos (Sci-Fi - $9.95) and Labor of the Gods (Historical/Fantasy - $6.95).

The Goalsystem Fantasy ($2.95) rulebook is designed to allow players to play fantasy skirmish games and to design their own characters and monsters.  Essentially this rulebook gives you all of the core rules for the Goalsystem as well as a good set of abilities, powers, skills and spells that can be a great source of miniature gaming goodness at a very reasonable price.

I highly recommend that everyone have a look at The Ghosts of Hefei kickstarter and consider adding your support behind this project - it is going to be a fantastic system with many proven and talented people working to make this game a success!
