Our next campaign

We are busy with our next campaign game.  I try to write a bit each day, though I admit that I have to spend a fair amount of time on plain old reading for research purposes.  Our game playtesters demand a high degree of historical fealty, so even invented events have to be plausible.

Sudden Storm notes

One of the great things about Sudden Storm is the fact that big guns rule.  Though I am a huge fan of naval aviation and love playing out the battles from The Solomons Campaign, I understand that many naval gamers do not want to play with aircraft, this historically based game, gives them the opportunity to see how the technology that would reach its highest form in WWII developed.  It is an alternative history game, but uses only forces that were available in 1937.  Even the Timeline we wrote uses historical events, though admittedly we moved them around a bit and embellished them in some cases.  I am proud of the end result, a games that covers a Pacific war spanning from the China coast to the central Pacific.  The ground combat module, though abstract, delivers accurate results, based upon the actual US and Japanese forces available at the time.
