Re: A Twilight 2k esque or Mercenary Sim

I'd join the Merc game... I've got a long, long, long list of mercs who need playing

How about a freeform rp?

Thumbs up Thumbs down

Re: A Twilight 2k esque or Mercenary Sim

It was going to be freeform. As I was unable to find my rulebook

Re: A Twilight 2k esque or Mercenary Sim

I have them all. We could use the adventures as well.

Re: A Twilight 2k esque or Mercenary Sim

Well, due to some recent consideration.

If I can get 6 players, I'll do this. But it's going to take a couple of weeks to get started, as I'm getting hit pretty hard by life at the moment

Have you heard of DriveThruRPG at all?

Re: A Twilight 2k esque or Mercenary Sim

I have, I bought a bunch of these Battlelords of the 23rd century books from there, though I'm also considering freeform as I'm not really sure how I'd handle roles. And what not

Basically in concept I'd like to move the timetable up a few years. So if any of you would like to play women in the infantry, you'll be able to do that as it is. 2020 or so. (Ironette, I'm looking at you) And also, the gear is much more modern and something I'm familiar with.

Also, for the group. I was considering you were a ragtag band of special forces operatives from a few NATO nations, still fighting the war you were pretty sure was over. Doing all kinds of commando stuff, hitting hard targets, disrupting what little remains of supply lines, and most importantly. Trying to survive

Never mind then. I thought we would do a REAL T2k. I'm slowly beginning to realize that Phoenix has not much anymore to offer to me. Maybe I've started to grow out of it.

Re: A Twilight 2k esque or Mercenary Sim

I had suggested that, because previously. I had asked about moving up the time period, and people. Including you seemed receptive to that.

However, if this is about the special forces thing. I'm up for changing it to a eclectic bunch of US and NATO infantry.

Can we play marines?

Because, I want to play marines.

Re: A Twilight 2k esque or Mercenary Sim

I guess I spoke too soon above. Maybe one more time into the breach.

I played a Ranger Major in the earlier T2k games. I'm not opposed to Spec Ops, but I'd love to get the feel of the original T2k plot at least once.

2020 ok if we won't be invincible. If we have superior vehicles, weapons and Equipment, unlimited food and fuel, it's either unrealistic or not post-apocalyptic..... It has to involve survival in an almost completely destroyed World.

Even in small wars supplies are low!

I have rplayed several Spec Ops characters, so that's no problem.

Ragtag? Battlestar Galactica 2020? Civilians to protect? Drones following us?

Please don't make Knights of Blood and Steel, Muds and Mercenaries, Rainbow Six, Merc:2000 and T2k exactly identical!

Re: A Twilight 2k esque or Mercenary Sim

Ok, so. I am fully aware of how to make a game post apocalyptic, breaking down equipment, lack of fuel. I know how to run lack of supply. Just because you're in 2020 doesn't mean your armor and gear is going to last forever. Your uniforms will be dirty, and a  Soviet era truck with a quarter tank of fuel will be as much of a godsend to you as a Stryker ICV.

Rainbow 6 is about being a Elite Counter Terrorism operative for a U.N. funded and supplied group. So, supplies wouldn't be an issue.

Mud and Mercenaries is about being a member of a global paramilitary company, and I'm not Ironette so I'm personally unaware of how to handle supplies.

Knights of Blood and Steel. Is in it's First mission, so I haven't had the time. To show the truly despair filled state of things with supplies, fuel, and ammo. And while later we will switch to the western front, these things will still be an issue.

But do know that I am fully capable of running a game set in a world where fuel, food, and everything in scarce. Because I've done twilight 2k before, I ran a game where the players were a VDV company who'd lost all their airborne and mechanized support. They hoofed it everywhere. most used surplus weapons, and half of them were supply clerks and mechanics.

So please, just trust that I know what I'm doing. And don't judge a game that hasn't gotten out of it's first two threads.

Re: A Twilight 2k esque or Mercenary Sim

I didn't mean it in that way.... sad

Feel of original T2k, not now, but in the future, on any site.

I have seen too many games online(not Phoenix) that is supposed to be T2k or post-apocalyptic with unlimited everything.

I just seen tanks/pcs mentioned in every game. Tanks are almost invincible. I wish not for a tank.

I write what I hope and wish for, not trying to decide. I wasn't critizing or judging anyone's game, only telling you how I feel and what I've seen.

VDV?

If anyone hurt their feelings, I apologize! I'm sorry! I'm just so interested...

Re: A Twilight 2k esque or Mercenary Sim

VDV is Russian Airborne. I played in that game, it was fun. It's been too long.

I'm fine with whatever really, but yeah. I don't want all kinds of armor and stuff.

Re: A Twilight 2k esque or Mercenary Sim

Yes, VDV traditionally wear a blue beret and striped undershirts and are considered elite forces; there were no less than seven divisions of them during the Cold War.

Can't join this due to lack of time but will watch with considerable interest.

Re: A Twilight 2k esque or Mercenary Sim

Heh, I was going to play an ordinary intel analyst who sat in front of a computer all day...that being said, SOF has intel analysts.

Re: A Twilight 2k esque or Mercenary Sim

I was actually mostly considering making it a combination of. the 101st Airborne, 1st Marine Division, and Some British units.

No worries, I can do Screamin' Eagles. Worked for an MP unit that was part of them...anyhoo...

Re: A Twilight 2k esque or Mercenary Sim

I thought it'd make for a good mixture of units.

I was with 1-33 cav, for a while.

Why do you speak like we are all Soldier? Explain post-# 66, 68, 69 & 70, please.

I am fascinated and interested in wars. I had no opportunity in life to get that life and I'm still from Finland.

MP = Military Police?

Re: A Twilight 2k esque or Mercenary Sim

Intelligence / security / information operations (2)

The intelligence section is responsible for collecting and analyzing intelligence information about the enemy to determine what the enemy is doing, or might do, to prevent the accomplishment of the unit's mission. This office may also control maps and geographical information systems and data. At the unit level, the S2 is the unit's security officer, and the S2 section manages all security clearance issues for the unit's personnel. Other duties of the S2 often include intelligence oversight and physical security.

so guys how may ponits do i get for my google- and wiki-fu ?

I don't think there's a link for my old unit, A Troop, 3rd Squadron, 12th Cavalry.  We were stationed at Armstrong Barracks in Buedingen, West Germany.  We were the cav for 3rd Armored Division.  It was a cool unit.  HHT, three line troops (A,B,C) and one air cav troop (D), which had Cobras and Hueys.
