Re: Vehicles, kit , etc

The setting is going to need the collapse of the Polish, Ukrainian and/or German states if it is to preserve the survival elements of the game. If they remain functional states, US forces en route home will be unwelcome intruders, as opposed to being the ones to come in an liberate villages from loc...

Re: A Wicked Secret

Wow aramis, they really went balls to the walls fighting the Väsen! That is a very different way of playing it from my group. Exciting!
They didn't set out to fight it, just banish it. They didn't count on it being a mind-bending teep.

Re: A Wicked Secret

My players are midway through AWS. (We took this week off, tho'. Semi-grrr.) The Prep phase runs longish... as they debate. Ida the hunter uses the shop to "well maintained" her rifle. Abraham, the other hunter, studies the area. Carin, she's late to session due to player's work. But she had to repl...

Re: Vehicles, kit , etc

We don't know just how much 4e will assume in damage areas and severities. There are several factors: level of use of nukes. 1E and 2E assumed limited tactical use, no successful strat use. level of use of chem. 1E and 2E assumed tactical use only, and non-durable. level of use of FAEs. 1E and 2E as...

Re: Vaesen soundtrack suggestions

I prefer a playlist/set of "neutral" background music that evokes the general time/setting - good for starting things up, life in the country, travel, ordinary life - no threats. Then a set with more sinister, creepy music for investigations, the dark woods, sneaking into the lord's mansion or the ...

Re: Vaesen-themed Community Content Program-template?

+1

Vaesen has not (yet) been added to the CCP.
Does anyone know whether it will be?
Say, I have a mystery I would like to share, what other options are there?
If you're not planning on monetizing them, I suspect posting them or a link to them seems to be tolerated... Much as Daïna has done.

Re: Vehicles, kit , etc

Novichok, anyone? Putin's favourite political opposition management tool. It's family of several binary nerve agents, and these are just a few of the many interesting chemical warfare agents developed by the Soviet Union. And that thus might be deployed during the Twilight War. One of the few I rec...

Re: Using Levels of Difficulty?

I've been using the following in my thought process for difficulties: First is if auto-success or auto-failure is indicated. if so, do that. If neither auto-success nor auto-failure, is failure interesting for me &or the player? If yes, set a difficulty. If not, let it succeed. Difficulty 1 is my de...

Re: Vaesen soundtrack suggestions

Last night in session, I called for "Chariots of Fire in a Minor Key" ... it set just the right tone at the moment for the fight with the Church Grim. I almost never use music in session, but I was looking something up and it was the perfect fill... (They weren't trying to kill it. It didn't care.) ...

Re: Swedish Village Maps?

Hi All Before I fall back on generic fantasy or other maps as a starting point, does anyone know of mappage for a period village set in Vaesen times? I presume often it was just a few wood cabins or something out in the wilderness, but it would be nice to have some artefacts of the time if they exi...
