The campaign has restarted, the first iteration died when one of the players had to dropout. Now with two new, and motivated players.

Map of Grumblstan

We are now on Campaign turn 4, and have three battles to resolve:

(1) In the Valley of Death, Battle at VD-3

(2) In the Lush River Valley, Battle at LRV-4

(3) In the Valley of Misery, Battle at VM-5

The players are being polled about availability for miniatures battles. Battles not resolved in miniature will use the alternate system in the campaign rules (modified opposing die rolls).

More to come …

I would like to see the rules you're using for your campaign if you don't mind. :)

Where are you, how can I get in touch?

I'm running a game at the NOVAG game day in Centerville, tomorrow.

There are the rules for running the miniature games, and then there are the scenario rules for the mini-campaign.

In this iteration of the campaign, a Red Force summary and a Blue Force summary were prepared for the opposing players at the start of the campaign. The goal of this is to try and keep the specific mechanics of the guts hidden from the players, so their decisions are based on what makes tactical/operational sense to them. That way, both players get to discover how things work, as we go along.

So far so good.

I have been following this for a while and reloaded all your previous posts. I too am interested in which rules, for both game levels, you are using. Thank you.

I can't PM you, as you're not a TMP supporting member.

What am I supposed to do now?

Hey Ponder,

I am just seeing this now and am also curious about ruleset, etc. My supporting membership should be live shortly, would it be possible to get in on the rules and scenarios?

Thank you.
Stan (for real…lol)

Not published. I worked diligently last winter and into spring. But since, I've been focused on other interests.

I'll get back to it. Send me a PM with your email.
