I was thinking of running an X-Wing Squadron style game so that bit of information is helpful. Do you have any suggestions on how I could make this work? Would the PCs still be short-lived if they only fought other fighters, or would that level the playing field out, in your experience?
I'm reading through NEW for the first time in preparation for a game I am hoping to run later this year. Are there Star Fighter rules anywhere that treat Fighters like individual ships instead of squadrons?
