Dirtside II


Generic rules for any background or future history. Players take the roles of "Combat Group Commanders," leading ad-hoc battle formations composed of multiple platoon-sized elements. Rules cover armor, infantry, artillery, combat walkers, and aerospace support forces. The "fast play" combat system is chartless. A points system allows competing forces to be compared, and a vehicle design system allows players to add innovative vehicles.
