Re: Scavenging Vehicle Parts

Maybe a system along these lines: Success lets you fix the problem with vehicle spare parts. A failed roll means that you can only try again with a more specific part. A failed roll on that attempt means that you can only try again with spares from an identical vehicle. Oh, that's a very nice idea!...

Re: 6th Polish Security Regiment info?

Yeah, they seem to be written as more of a local milita type, used as Guides, translators and POW handlers mostly
Yes, that's my take as well. They're a GM tool to take of burdens from the players and share perspectives and information from a Polish point.

Re: 6th Polish Security Regiment info?

Short answer: There seems to never have been a 6th Regiment in the internat forces of communist Poland. The KBW was restructured in 1965 into the Internal Defense Forces (Wojska Obrony Wewnętrznej; WOW) and remained as such until 1989. These forces were paramilitary in theory only, in reality they w...

Re: Continuous Suppression Results

The Soviets recover from suppression at the end of their turn so technically it's "suppressed, recovered, suppressed again" - but you are right, you can suppress an enemy continuously over several rounds. This is what proper suppression looks like: it's continuous and offers the suppresso...

Re: Battle Maps and Elevations

I don't think those are elevations. My take is that they are just artistic decisions to make the "grass/field" more varied to look at. In general the polish and swedish countrysides are pretty flat overall. And despite where your game takes place the area on the maps (150 m across or so) ...

Re: ChatGPT Character Background

Interesting idea! I tweaked the input, giving ChatGPT more about the background. This is my input text block: Please write me a background story for a German soldier in the year 2000. The German soldier should be around 30 years old in 2000, a West German native and have a background in academics. H...

Re: Extra Travel Maps

Personally, I have resorted to google maps, because the 10x10km size of the hexes is too big for my tastes and the maps are not detailed enough when it comes to smaller roads etc. But, if you buy the Foundry VTT module, you can connect your computer to your TV and show the map on there :) I use Ope...

Re: Throwing "Blind"

Hand Grenades (except for antitank) doesn't have direct damage (this table was part of the latest update regarding this) so you can't aim for an individual target with them, you always aim for a hex and a barrier may block LoS to individual targets in a hex, the hex may still be visible and if the ...

Re: HK PSG-1, G11 and bullpops in general

Yup. But it sure doesn't look too handy. https://youtu.be/E_didDgUjn0?t=50 I mean compared to the roughly 1-2 seconds one can change M4 magazine I doubt G11 could compare simply due to mag size and how deep it needs to be inserted. Then again haven't seen many in the competitions that I have attend...

Re: Dishonorable officer drafted

There is the slight possibility of a pardon, isn't there? With a world background so desperate and abstract as 4E, why not turn this up a notch? He might not be reinstated as a captain - then again he might - but making him a lieutenant (1LT or 2LT for further "punishment") and giving him ...
