Fair point. I guess if the population of the US was reduced by 52% by July of 2000, and Australia lost 30% of its population in the initial nuclear strikes alone, Australia's population was probably reduced by the same percentage if not more than the US by July 2000. And with a tiny initial population compared to the US, it would've been really hard to maintain an industrialised civilisation in the early part of the new millennium. Still, 40 years to drag ourselves back to being an industrial nation-state is pretty impressive, considering Australia was at war with a couple of hundred million Indonesians during most of that time. They breed 'em tough down here

well those Indonesians either have to be damn good swimmers or need a navy to do much except on New Guinea - and have a feeling while the Australian Navy took heavy losses, the Indonesian one may have been destroyed - could even help explain the US partnership - i.e. Australian Navy getting some help from the US one handing the Indonesians their heads and finishing them as a naval threat

and I agree with the 40 years as a Howling Wildnerness comment - sounds like the GDW guys watched Mad Max too many times

Hi Antenna, I tried to visit your site at www.ludd.ltu.se/~antenna/t2k/index.htm but it's saying the site is Not Found.

I had to take down the pages for some reason or so. And make a mending effort for the pages from outside Sweden was to hard I can tell.

But now I am home again and I gonna make an effort when I have settled down at home.

Nordic Sourcebook as collected from the four other topics listed in this forum (go search "Nordic Sourcebook"; I'll wait).

John Farson, I believe, did the translation. I cannot tell you how complete it is, nor how canonical GDW felt it was.

All I did was put it into an MS Word file, assign heading levels, ran spell check.

I did write the last page, about Reindeer.

I have always wondered what the Swedish player did that Sweden did not become more prominent.

Does anyone know how long (until what year) the Great Game went until?

Reading the material for T2K and T:2300, you seem to read of the horrors of the Twilight War and its end, with France on her knees and everyone else down flat and/or disintegrated, and then....

the other nations pull themselves together over the next 40-50 years,

and then 200+ years pass more or less statically until you get to the late 2200s where they describe the lead up to 2300 (the Manchurian War, the German War, and then the Kafers). The spread through space is some what described but.... its like more or less nothing really changed for 200 years (2050 - 2250).

But we know that the last 200 years of history have been anything but static (in terms of the power relations between nations, without discussing technology).

I believe it pretty much went to 2300, with game turns of 5-10 years. The Sweden player was Matt Renner, who was also CivGov and Nigeria (every player had either 3 or 4 countries except Frank, who was referee and kibbitzer).
