Re: Soviet-Russian Strategic Culture

Vader makes a good point: it is not just the cleptocracy in the military, it is other parts of society as well. From research to production, when (mostly) everyone takes their "cut", the end result is usually not what was originally hoped for. Even if there are no purchases from Alibaba in...

Re: Soviet-Russian Strategic Culture

Well...having visited Estonia when it was under Soviet rule I can tell the following story: We saw that near the airbase the vegetation was really withered and died and asked why is it like this? Apparently the millitary pilots got their hours logged based on the amount of fuel used. However, they w...

Re: Urban Operations

Oooohh looks like Operation Reset will be a bit of a curveball (p.51)
I really must say after quick browsing that the "Plots" are exactly what TW needs. Good stuff!

Re: Soviet-Russian Strategic Culture

This is exactly why I feel "safe" playing TW4e at the moment. It is pretty much a fantasy setting tbh. That being said, the nukes flying would probably change or even things a bit. Then again, my guess is that the General responsible for a launch site X sold the warhead to a third world te...

Re: Battery drain

I was thinking of going the "resource die" mentioned by Omnipus at first. But I really would like to come up with an option that does not involve another die roll. Yeah it is just one die roll, but then again it is just one small battery in the post apocalyptic wasteland too, not really wo...

Re: Urban Operations

"I don't see where the Second Ukraine War has anything to do with releasing a role playing game supplement. But then I don't share a border with Russia, so that might be the difference there." Well neither does Sweden,but I get your point. :) From what I understand the delay is not about t...

Battery drain

Been thinking on how to implement battery drain into the game so as to make them matter more as a resouce. I also run a bit more modern campaign so electronics play even larger role. Realismwise battery drain varies a lot between equipment: the battery of a drone might be 15 minutes of flight time w...

Re: Errata

One can obviously change weapon stats and hack the system quite easily and it's not a big deal. The system overall doesn't aim for ultimate "realism" imo as much as playability. But of course since the setting involves so much war and weapons, a certain degree of "gun porn" and s...

Re: Animal Consumption/ Upkeep Requirements ...in particular Horse

Thanks Jonesy, that was informative and entertaining read! The movie 12 Strong, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/12_Strong also has some riding scenes with modern weapons for those interested. Not commenting on the quality/realism of the movie otherwise but the genre of "modern military fighting f...
