Axis and Allies Video (And WWII Campaigns)

This was one of my favorite games back in the day, circa 1998. Watching it, I want to run a WWII Commando/Special Forces campaign:



Of course, if you're going to run a World War II game, there's a lot to consider. It's not a time that was particularly enjoyable for the people who lived through it, and as much as I love history, I don't know that I can remove myself enough from the realities of it all to run a game in it. That might be a little heavy for me. Pulping it into something like "Inglourious Basterds" doesn't feel quite right, either.

Considered, but that's a little too heavy for me. Thanks for the thought, though!

Pete Spahn wrote a nifty WWII SpecOps RPG called operation jedburgh. Here's a review of it - http://www.rpg.net/reviews/archive/13/13033.phtml

Actually, now that I think of it, it was a scenario for D20 Modern. My WWII RP gaming has been limited to flying games, and my SpecOps to modern and SF settings.

Oh, I remember that now!

It's very well written. I've considered porting it to SC system for my own use. It was on the strength of this that I had Pete design Cold Front for IHW: Wild Blue.
