Re: Battery drain

After several years without NEW batteries or without a reliable electricity network, many batteries are going to be showing major signs of wear. You're not very likely to get that 15 minutes of drone flying time if it's been used often. That said, I think I'd use usage dice for this, a slightly diff...

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

Some relevant reading within here (actually all of it is pretty relevant to a T2K campaign and if I was revisiting mine today I'd incorporate a lot more ideas from here!) https://acoup.blog/2022/07/15/collections-logistics-how-did-they-do-it-part-i-the-problem/ In particular: the sort of horses avai...

Re: Question about Foliage vs Forest hexes.

There are certainly smaller trees, bushes, ground clutter, etc in Poland -- ie, "foliage." Especially along river banks and so on. But when you talk about "forest" it mostly tends to be these stick parades that grow tall and leafy/needley, but don't offer much at ground level. Li...

Re: Question about Foliage vs Forest hexes.

This might make sense in the context of specifically Polish forest. Many forests of Poland are birch or sosna pine -- tall, thin, featureless stick farms, essentially. Like so: http://www.krakowpost.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/forest-2370476_1280.jpg You can see how this doesn't offer as much con...

Re: Marauder Base Camp

1e canon places the former Soviet 9th Tank Division in that area - "former" because the unit stopped responding to orders after losing its HQ in late 1999.

For a bonus bit of context, this unit was of majority-Ukrainian ethnicity, and decided to stop following Soviet (Russian) orders.

Re: Weapons: Reliability and Armor

That's one criticism that's been mentioned, yes... the level of abstraction of REL doesn't really have anything to do with the odds of rolling a jam right here, right now. However, in a prolonged fight, and especially one where you're using a lot of ammo (dice), it does definitely come into play, as...

Re: Group Recon -roll alternatives?

The rules make a token gesture to this, early on. They state some equivalent of "only roll when failure is likely and interesting" and make a similar token gesture to "fail forward" design. Unfortunately, this feels rather pasted on, and it's hard to make much of what to do with ...

Re: Group Recon -roll alternatives?

I totally agree with all of that -- outright stealing more ideas and mechanics from Blades and bringing them to T2K definitely improved my games! In this case, I like to land somewhere in the middle. On the one hand it is a game. On the other hand there is a fair dose of realism, and I have spent ma...

Re: High quality road map of 1980-1990 Poland?

Best course of action IMO, and the one I've used, is to refer to modern maps and then cross-reference them with the period-accurate topo maps. Lots of new development, including lots of new highways and bridges in Poland since the 90s... stuff that shouldn't be there in canon.

Re: T2K4E Foundry VTT - Not compatible w/ V10

As a rule I tend to wait many many months before installing new major releases of Foundry, because it mostly is a niche enthusiast community and many modules and features just don't get updated in a timely fashion. The T2K module is however in a sense "paid" so I'd hope for somewhat faster...
