Re: Another War Sim From Yours Truly

Eh, good enough for me at the moment.

I believe I'm ready to run. Name is Of Grunts and Jarheads: A WW2 Sim.

Re: Another War Sim From Yours Truly

Id like to suggest right now that we all define our roles within the squads. The most important for Marines would be.

Radioman
BAR Gunner
Corpsman
And Demolitions

Are we all in one squad?

Re: Another War Sim From Yours Truly

Uh, well for convenience sake it makes sense. Unless you'd all like to be in different squads

Thumbs up Thumbs down

Re: Another War Sim From Yours Truly

No, no... Ironette used the term "squads", so it led me to ask.  Same squad makes sense.  Never presume anything...

Thumbs up Thumbs down

Re: Another War Sim From Yours Truly

Indeed she did.

But yes for all intents and purposes same squad. I'll be your Platoon Leader, and also random Riflemen here and there.

Although, when we switch narratives we'll switch squads of course. But you'll still be together.

Sounds like a plan...  I'll carry the BAR if no one else wants it.

Re: Another War Sim From Yours Truly

Well, it wasn't unheard of for a squad to have lifted a second one. So if someone else does, that's always an option.

Re: Another War Sim From Yours Truly

I'm capable of doing demolitions or medic

Re: Another War Sim From Yours Truly

Well your AT man would be from weapons company. Assigned when needed.

I'll do squad lead. And spart should carry the radio. So he can call in naval bombardments

Also Marksmen were assigned on a platoon basis. Because on paper a rifle platoon would have 2 scoped springfields. However in the field this wasn't always the case.

I'll leave the rest up to NPCs

All positions taken then?

Re: Another War Sim From Yours Truly

No Krista. Sims still open to new members


Iron, remember who the GM/SL is going to be.


Also Krista. I thought you were busy

Re: Another War Sim From Yours Truly

This looks like a sim I could join, but if no positions?
I wonder why some of you oppose me joining military sims?

Yes, the busy situation has slightly changed. I try to find a military sim anyway that I can do without being a Soldier. Without my physical disability I might have done something military in my life.

Is that okay for you?

Thumbs up Thumbs down

Re: Another War Sim From Yours Truly

Yeah, all is well. And there are positions. Five players gives me about a half of a US army section to work with. Or a full squad.

The Medical and demolitions positions are available. Or you could just play rifleman if that suits you.


Apologizes if you feel like some players are opposed to you joining.

Re: Another War Sim From Yours Truly

Krista. I wasn't opposed. You just uh, asked about open positions and I did my best to uh. I guess, give knowledge about the way specialists would've worked?


My apologizes though, and Spart doesn't necessarily need to carry the radio so radio operator position is open as well.

I Think rifleman would be best, in case something happens to me.

Eh, Springfield. Marines weren't issued Garands yet. Since we'll be starting at Guadalcanal

Re: Another War Sim From Yours Truly

No reason to be sorry. Most people don't know that. Well most people who aren't Marines. who get the short end of the stick.

Or the army, who laughs uncontrollably at them

Re: Another War Sim From Yours Truly

Depends on if some people were more adaptive to sniping. Although the scoped variants would have already been issued.


So, really the learning of a new weapons system would be much harder. Along with the fact that Marines didn't like the Garand initially, referring to it as a "Micky Mouse Rifle"


Kind of the same feelings were had during the M14 to M16 switch. Except, unlike the early 16s. the garand worked pretty well


Also man, I think I'm going to have to drop out tenatively.

I've been wanting to run a modern non mercenary ground combat game.

And if I do that and this I'll be over my limit!

So, here's a minor plug for me, and I express my apologizes
