Opinions vary. Depends on the rules/scope of the game.

Without civilians to rescue (in danger or injured) Supers would just be boxing on steroids. (Okay that is hyperbole but it was intentional.)

Gracias,

POLL DESCRIPTION

Neotacha Inactive Member wonders...

A while back, I asked who made female casualty figures. We mostly do RPGs, and riding into town or a clearing with a couple of wounded folk or corpses can be a good set-up for an adventure, if a little cliche. It can also, for some reason, make players paranoid.

Someone said he found the discussion tasteless. Fair enough. Someone else suggested female casualties would work as objective markers for some FIW skirmish games.

So if you could get casualty figures (dead or immobile wounded) of women and children, would you use them in your games, or would it be too creepy for you? Assume the figures are in the appropriate period and scale for your games.
