Chapter 2: Starship Combat / Armada Combat


Source Starship Operations Manual pg. 58
Most armada encounters should be against armadas of lower tiers, as evenly matched armadas are likely to both suffer catastrophic damage. Use the following table as a guideline.

Table 2–15: Calculating Armada Challenge

Easy Allied armada tier — 3
Average Allied armada tier — 2
Challenging Allied armada tier — 1
Hard Allied armada tier
Epic Allied armada tier + 1

XP Awards: PCs should earn experience points for defeating enemy armadas, following the same rules as for earning XP for starship combat (Core Rulebook 390).
