I don't want to get into any political garbage about this, but a lot of Vietnam war scenarios I've witnessed and played in at conventions seem to make it basically pointless for the NVA/VC side, as their victory conditions don't account for the lack of firepower.

The TFL rules were a fresh reprieve from that.

(and if you want to argue about the politics of that, please reach out to me directly at ireallydontcare@goaway.com

In professional wrestling, the wrestlers are usually, but not always, divided into "heels" and "faces". Think pre-NWO Hulk Hogan, and NWO Hulk Hogan.

A heel is the Bad Guy. He sneers a lot, and is a loud mouth jerk on the mic. He also cheats. (In wargaming terms, "cheats" could mean "the rules are designed to favor him.")

For me, these would be the WW2 Germans. Or Napoleonic French. We have all seen the special rules designed to assure that these armies will usually win, numbers and skill being equal. The notorious "+2 for being French, +3 if your C-in-C is Napoleon" rules.

Heck, Warrior has added enough Stupid Roman rules to make sure that only a dead idiot can lose with Romans.
