Re: Player Narrative and Player Tactical Control

If memory serves I am the author of the quote (and I have also played Phoenix Command :)) In fact I have played so many different RPG systems over time that I tend to blend them instinctively together. Recently I have DMed a lot of D&D and given how impossible it is to pre-plan for every possible co...

Re: Alpha Vehicle Combat

Twilight has always been a infantry on infantry game with vehicles being rare. Given modern weapons combat ranges can easily extend out to 1-2 kilometers but most small arms combat occurs at relatively close range. Given the lack of supply long range engagements where both sides fire hundreds of bul...

Re: T2000 Variant Campaigns

Back in the day we played a Vietnam War campaign for far longer than the original TW setting. Once as Special Forces in the Central Highlands and another as LURPs crossing into Cambodia and Laos to operate on the Ho Chi Minh trail. The setting meant that you started out with a heap of ammo and resou...

Re: Which Snipers/Hunting Rifles come with Telescopic Sights?

Having been a hunter back in the 80s/90s here in Australia pretty much every hunting rifle came with a scope - usually a fixed x4 or x6 - and there were a large number of cheap brands on the market. My two best rifles had Zeiss scopes which I think were manufactured in East Germany at the time. So I...

Re: Which Snipers/Hunting Rifles come with Telescopic Sights?

Sights and scopes can be added to a wide range of weapons as long as that weapon is fitted with the right rails and furniture. Hence you can have a reflex or peep scope, quick change twin mag and flash light attached to your M4. Scopes can be treated as a separate piece of kit, or the Referee can sa...

Re: [ALPHA] Character generation

CUF may not improve with battlefield experience: heaps of soldiers will suffer from various levels of PTSD as they reach their limit and break under stress. Going through chemical and nuclear attacks, seeing huge numbers of people die, and watching the world descend into hell will burn out the best ...

Re: Fuel for thought

All that coal, and left over steam engines suggests to me the return of a weapon of war with a long Polish history - The Armoured Train.

Re: Fuel for thought

The abundance of coal in Poland will certainly have a large local impact. Power stations will probably be abandoned due to the breakdown in the electrical transmission system. However coal is great for heating houses and provides fuel for working metal and other tasks. It makes the use of steam loco...
