Have not done much to this thread (beyond adding a few polls), but I like it to be the first thread so I am bumping it.

i used to play T2k and M2k back in the mid 90s. then life caught up. Now life seems more manageable but no t2k players around me. maybe when i move back east i will find some. right now i am just working on my t2k database. i am really interested in unarmed combat house rules folks may have developed for the t2k system.

always glad to hear from a new playah

much in the same situation as you gaming wise -but lucky to have a group that gets together 3-4 times a year for weekend long sessions

as for house rules - dare I venture these

Getting things bass ackwards
 
Hello all,

I've been following Twilight 2000 since the early '90s, and have always found it to be one of my favorite settings. I've already posted a couple of items, but have neglected to make a formal introduction. OOPS.

Hello, my handle is Top-Break, and I am a Twilight 2000 Fan.

Ancestor 10-19-2011 12:06 AM

This is like crack
 
So, I'm a T2K junkie from way back. I registered at the old forum as Ancestor but was promptly called to active duty thereafter and forgot about the whole thing. At any rate, I discovered Chico's page while wasting time at work and was dragged back to the 7th grade. I discovered the link to this forum there and was blown away. Thank you all for the great work you have done to keep this game alive and I hope that I can add something useful in what few spare moments I have. My background is NG. I've deployed for several domestic operations (Katrina, Gustav), took a long AD tour working to improve multi-state response for the NG to large scale domestic operations, and then deployed to the Horn of Africa for a "combat tour". I hope that I can provide some insight on DOMOPS as well as the amazing place that is the dark continent. Again, thanks for this great web site!

Still Running T2k at Gaming Conventions
 
Been playing it since it came out when I was in High School in mid-80's. Served in Army 1992-2000. Lived in and know Eastern Europe quite well too. Am the sole person running games at Origins Gaming Convention in Columbus, Ohio annually. Last few years have run these 4 hour mini games with 8-12 victims...I mean players:

2008: Crossing the Oder: 1999, rebuilt Berlin Brigade, flush with USAF/USN/DOD Civilian vol. is attached to Brit II Corps. Sent across the Oder river with Brit Armored Recon regiment to seize Polish oil fields............. YES! I said Oil Fields... Gorzow Wielkopolski... funny, the resistance stiffened up quickly when those 57mm S-60 and ZSU-57-2 and Mortars in them thar hills opened up on Brit Lt. Armor and up armored Hmmwv's..... it's not pretty!

2010: Trap at Hogweed Junction: US Logistics unit with fuel(yes, Mad Max style fuel tanker with one legged sniper), meds, and armored deuce-and-a -halfs ambushed by East German (gasp!) hostile anti-social ex-Pro-Communist marauders with yes, PPSH-43 SMG's (think doors get sprayed at 20m). One player correctly guessed that horrid evil boom from 300m away that kept destroying Mk-19 gunner behind the armor plate cupula was a PTRS-41 (14.5) anti-tank rifle.... (evil grin)

2011: Ran two games.
A. The Smoking Dragon: Brit Ad Hoc transport unit is sent to evacuate a leg-mobile Brit Infantry Platoon. Sadly they get there just after the shell-fire stopped.... strange mist in the air... recon troops drop from non-persistant NBC residues... "Gas-Gas-Gas" anyone? Oddly while picking over the site for survivors.... my...isn't that a BTR-152 and men in WP Gas Masks emerging from the trail? Battle ensues.

B. The Red Plateau: Libya, 1997. Yep, I planned this before IRL Libya actually happened. Soviets took over Libyan stored 1000 T-55's and other assets (think Spetznaz operation). They try to march on to Egypt and Tunisia. NATO (Brit, Aussie, NZ, Spanish/Portuguese) forces trying to dislodge the Soviets with their Libyan lackies. So this lone Chieftain, mauled, gets lost and finds a water well at an old Italian Airfield... Sov troops need water...bad... so they dispatch heavily protected convoy to get water from the only spot on the map... a well at an old Italian Airfield... Battle ensues... maintenance and SAS Land Rover involved. ;-)

I kinda thought maybe someone would be interested if I posted these mini modules.... dunno what do u all think?

PS this year I'm running another pair of games at Origins.... I'm feeling Southern Germany and Korea... :P Been researching all your German Territorial Army stuff, DPRK on my own too.... I'm feeling it.

Am the sole person running T2k games at Origins Gaming Convention in Columbus, Ohio annually. I ran 6x 4-hour games last summer.... all full of 8-12 people. No problem at all. Old school and newbies. My quote: Ruthless Gritty Post-Apocalyptic game. Not for the timid. Ages 10+ (LOL)

I'm not exactly new, but I've been away from the site for a while; and WOW what a lot of wonderful material has been posted while I've been away. It's going to take we a while to look through it all, and I'm going to enjoy every minute.

JSerena 02-13-2012 07:37 AM

Hey guys,

I am completely new to this forum, and just going through all the material posted here. very nice.

Cue the inevitable all-male, virtual wrasslin' match to get to the new girl on the boards.

Well...the only girl on the boards.

Well...the only biological girl on the boards...

kato13 02-13-2012 09:32 AM

I think Serena is a last name in this context.

Was checking to see if the new user is a spammer (more likely than a female unfortunately) and came to that conclusion.

TicToc 03-14-2012 10:40 PM

Hello forum followers.

I am currently serving in the military and have been for the last 13 years. I started as an Infantrymen in the USMC, and now am a Tactical Air Controller in the Air Force. If you are unfamiliar with Controllers I will give a brief description. We are aligned with the Army but get pulled to work with any ground maneuver force in the battle space. My doctrinal job is to plan for and then execute airstrikes. I can do this from an operation center but far more frequently than not I do it from a radio on my back while I am on a patrol. In addition due to our position we end up being made a sort of jack of all traded, we work anything that drops out of the sky, be it Indirect fires, UAVs, intel platforms, rotary, or fixed wing. Many of us also gain more specialized skills though any number of schools that become available to us. To boil it down the best way I can describe it is I'm a decent Infantrymen with a wide variety of specialized skills and I bring the biggest gun in the fight to bear.

Saying Hi
 
Hello all, thought I'd post here too. I'm new to the forums and to T2000 in general. Picked up the 1 edition rules and I'm hooked. :) Hoping to do some good stuff with it in the future.

Hello all - played Twilight 2000 a long time ago when it first came out and had a long campaign that ended badly when the players and GM got disillusioned with further play by the way the canon timeline and modules were going.

ROTC in college, have fired many different guns and currently work at a major defense contractor on the M88 and M109, which thus gives me some interesting viewpoints on the game.

Also was a long term contributor to ShatteredWorld if any of you ever read that WWII alternate timeline.

Medic 03-30-2012 01:04 PM

Welcome, then. It is good to have a redleg along - you are most certainly going to he called to provide us useful info on things relating to arty. :D

Hi, I have lurked around this forum for a few years now, and have finally decided to take the plunge and join. My major gaming activities are primarily tabletop miniature wargaming, but I have done my share of playing in RPGs too.

Well met from another Kiwi!

You wouldn't know David Clarkson, would you? (table-top gamer in Chch)

Andrew

Uncle Brian 04-12-2012 08:17 AM

Hi Andrew,
Yes, I do know Dave Clarkson. I have meet him a few times through playing Command Decision, although I haven't seen him for years. Are you a Command Decision player too?

Targan 04-12-2012 08:21 AM

G'day Uncle Brian. I'm another Kiwi too, from Wellington, though I live in the land of Oz now. :D

Yes, played with him a couple of times at the convention in Chch, back around 2000-2001. Nice guy, BIG collection of stuff. Don't play C.D. now (no players I can find in Shanghai!) but still have good memories...

Aldaron 04-16-2012 07:34 AM

Can't believe I found you guys!
 
After 93GS folded, I lost track of the forums. Doing a Google search led me to here, and I saw some familiar faces (well, names) on the Twilight forum.

Good to see you guys! :)

Targan 04-16-2012 07:38 AM

Welcome, Aldaron. I'd like to think we're the premier new home for the 93 Games Studio forums refugees :D

Medic 04-16-2012 09:30 AM

Yes, welcome Aldaron. Funny - I know you are not the same person, since you live in Australia, but a friend of mine uses the handle Aldaron as well. And I do believe, I remember you from 93-forums as well...

Legbreaker 04-16-2012 11:32 AM

Woo Hoo! Another Australian! :p

stg58fal 04-17-2012 01:24 AM

Been lurking here a while, reading a bunch.

Got back into gaming after a break of about 10 years or so, then moved, so now I'm in the process of finding a group. I hope.

I've GM'ed V1, V2, and 2.2, and am currently in the process of writing a campaign for 2013 since I thought I was going to be living in the area my friends/gaming group from my childhood/teen years live in, and gaming with them. Short version is, that ain't gonna happen. Such is life, neh?

The good thing about that is, I can recycle some of the material from previos campaigns. And from what some of my friends have told me, they STILL talk about the campaign I ran 16 years ago, so....

Silent Six 04-19-2012 12:59 AM

Hi everyone!

I don't know how I didn't find you all before. I think I may have been directed here a couple of times in the past, but I'm not sure. Anyway, I was on many of the older sites/forums and the various mailing lists over the years. I lurked around here for a couple of days and thought I'd register and engage in discussions. I don't know if any of you know/remember me, but I remember a lot of you guys.

CarolG 04-21-2012 07:28 PM

Hi all,
I've been lurking for a while but since I started posting I thought I'd at least say hi. Started playing Twilight 2000 last year and am thoroughly enjoying myself. Good to meet everyone.

Targan 04-21-2012 09:41 PM

Welcome CarolG! Pull up a chair and stay awhile. Cold beers are in the fridge and we don't stand on formality much here so is drinking from the bottle ok with you?
