double drop

Postby Ranger S2H » Wed Oct 14, 2009 2:52 am

I had an idea for a scenario:

the situation: 2 armies are looking for the same artefact/treasure/person/shiny object, which has suddenly appeared in a town nearby. both factions immediately scramble a team to drop into the town and claim the object. in this scenario, the human gods have decided they will arrive at the EXACT SAME TIME (muhahahahaha).

get two armies of only infantry, light vehicles, and other things you would like to throw out of a plane. each unit, except ninjas, dimmies, and jawjaws will be equiped with a para- or gravchute for free, and thrown out of a plane or other transport at ridiculously high altitude. the transport will take no other part in the game.

find a scatter/stumble die, and pick the center of the battle field. measure the distance from the centre to the edge, and divide that by 6 this is the nimber of dice you will roll fr the scatter. 1 by 1, decide where each trooper will land. roll the scatter die and the number of D6es, and place the trooper that number of inches in the direction of the arrow, this is where he ends up. note that he will start on the first point he hits when coming down, which includes in trees, on top of buidlings without ladders, and in deep pits. the only exception is when a trooper should land in a location that would cause severe health problems, like lava and spike pits. nobody likes getting their troops killed without the chance to have them kill something else, so in these situations: fudge it. repeat this until both armies have dropped all their troops, and then start the battle.

The idea of this scenario is that you will have an army that needs to regroup first, while individual troopers are already fighting the enemies that landed right next to them. other units need to be saved from trees and other problems first, while ninjas and snipers are picking off whoever is stupid enough to run into their sight. 1 word: chaos

The troubles with all these custom scenarios are that:

A: No one makes a forum battle with them.
B: You all seem to lose sight of how awesome "Kill All Enemies" is as a scenario. I mean with this, the possibilities for bloodshed are endless.

kill all enemies is still the objective of the scenario, only deployment is different.

personally, I prefer "kill all enemies while being awesome". I was trying to introduce some friends of mine to the game the other day, and I turned the objective into "impress the GM by killing all enemies while being awesome". I think it really helped as there were significantly more crazy actions and manouvers than I had expected.

I vastly prefer scenarios. And even with scenarios, the players who just want to kill everyone (and everything) end up doing it anyways.

The way I have allways run paratroopers is to just trow them (or some bricks to represtent them) form about 4 feet away from the battlefield. This takes a lot less time, thus gets the game going faster, as well as includeing an element of skill into the game rather than just chance. (the bricks are better because they bounce away from wherever you threw them.)

If you throw the figs, it adds something else to the game: If a dude is holding two things in his hands, he's much more likely to lose it than a dude who's only got a rifle. You have to decide whether the badassery of being able to shoot something in the face and then stab it in the crotch is worth the risk of arriving weaponless.
