Re: Helicopters & other aircraft?

What aspects are you hoping to recreate? At the risk of blowing my own trumpet, I put together some rules for aircraft and anti-aircraft systems for V2, which are posted on Board Game Geek (well, RPG-Geek: https://rpggeek.com/rpg/1388/twilight-2000-2nd-edition , Files - Revised surface to air missil...

Re: Helicopters & other aircraft?

Silverfoxdmt73, I wouldn't particularly recommend the Nautical/Aviation sourcebook - it was the worst GDW Twilight:2000 module produced in my opinion. Dodgy artwork, Dodgy statistics for the aircraft included, and the aircraft listed in the module from memory included some types that were not sensib...

Re: T2K4 "Red Shirts"

Baldrick, A few years back, the last proper RPG campaign I ran was Call of Cthulhu - Rome (shameless plug - all written up and on BGG). The PCs were senior/experienced legionaries, and each had seven (initially...they got whittled down) more junior troops acting at their direction. Since formally, t...

Re: Recommended books for inspiration?

Not really a 'recommendation' since it's only just out and I haven't read it, but this has just last week been published, and may be of interest: BATTLEGROUP! The Lessons of the Unfought Battles of the Cold War. Published by Helion. From the 'blurb': "Battlegroup! investigates the unfought land...

Re: T2K4 "Red Shirts"

I pretty much always did this in 1st/2nd Ed games I ran. Boosting the PC group size opened up the possible starting vehicles options (1st/2nd ed, the group could start with more than one) and gave the groups some more of the 'fun' kit It meant I could make sure that the group had all the basic 'supp...

Re: Fuel for thought

AEB, The whole alcohol fuel thing in T:2k has always bugged me a bit... the idea that you just stop for a week or so and brew up some methanol always seemed a bit too much like a game mechanism for playability. The idea of Bio-diesel (basically slightly modified vegetable oil - modified using methan...

Re: Recommended books for inspiration?

I'm a bit surprised no one mentioned 'The Third World War' or 'The Third World War: the untold story' by Hackett, yet. For the military war phase rather than the game environment 'after-the-war' phase, consider 'First Clash' by Macksey (particularly for the Canadians amongst us), and the Harvey Blac...

Re: Cooking and camping

Well, it's a year after the global supply chain collapsed, so it seems reasonable that those people that are still alive have learnt the basics of survival, and can actually cook (and make camp) to a generally safe standard. Those that haven't would, for the most part, be dead by the time the game s...
