Re: [ALPHA] Some tweaks on the French situation

Hello Arrigo, My idea was not to have a Bonapartist (there are still a few, but they are mostly harmless reenactors), but a Bonaparte wannabe - i.e. an opportunist ready to do anything for personal advancement. So he would not be picked up by domestic intelligence - none of the coup members would: t...

[ALPHA] Some tweaks on the French situation

Hello, The French write-up is a HUGE improvement over the previous versions, and it is mostly credible. Having the French honor their NATO commitment and getting nuked as a result of it is, by far, much more likely than the previous iterations. My goal, being constructive, is (a) to fix the small bi...

Re: [ALPHA] The UK in 4E is still a bit... problematic

Hello Jerry B, Yes, let's keep this civil. Your points are very well taken - I tried to conciliate your valid concerns with having an end result that approaches that in the book, but fixing the unnecessarily weird stuff (logistics are unforgiving, and enough players have either a military background...

[ALPHA] Some suggestions for armored combat

Hello, I should first preface this by saying that the armored vehicle rules look very interesting - and have quite a lot of detail. However, there are some things that are missing or a bit oversimplified IMHO (sorry, I've designed a module for a WWIII squad-level game), and may be worth considering ...

Re: [ALPHA] The UK in 4E is still a bit... problematic

Hello, Let's see how we can try to make this work. I fully agree that the Soviet armada scenario is far-fetched. I can buy a semi-amphibious invasion of Sweden if Finnland has been invaded first, but this will likely exhaust most of the SU's capacity in that department. You could see how a daring ga...

Re: Who is Twilight: 2000 4e for?

Hello, I have vivid recollections of the end of the Cold War - notably the French pundits of the time trying to determine whether Gorbachev's ascent to power was part of a dastardly commie plot to lull the unsuspecting West into lowering its guard, and the fall of the Berlin wall, which we watched l...

Re: Vehicles, kit , etc

Hello, One of the things I am interested in is how the war will also impact areas that do not - directly - suffer the devastation of open warfare and/or nukes. Case on point: the areas in France that were not directly affected by the fighting received a lot of refugees, and the pressures of the war ...

Re: Defense dice instead of combat modifiers

Interesting idea, opposed die rolls tend to create more of a Gauss or bell curve. But it would need to be thoroughly tested.

Re: Finland

For starters, one should add Austria, Liechtenstein & Switzerland to the list of Neutrals with whom Sweden may have made contact (both Austria & Switzerland having their own weapons manufacturers - the Austrians manufactured APCs and tanks - the SK-105 Kürassier - in addition to small arms & cannons...

Re: French organized crime ....

I think our friends at Fria Ligan can be a bit more open about this - sending the Alpha version to all Kickstarter Backers (incl. yours truly) is a step in the right direction. Since TW:2000 is supposed to be gritty & realistic, I think getting the story right (or at least not laughable) is quite im...
