What the two esteemed gentlemen (or the kangaroo and the esteemed gentleman) said. As for the 2k13 campaign - who do I have to promise my left nut to in order to get in?

Well, guess I better jump on in!

I'm comped. If you wonder, I'm in the eastern half on the US. High school student (currently). Mostly I'm focused on theater/play writing, but I've read a fair bit of the t2k/2013 modules/core books. I have several ideas for source books jumping around in me head, which I will find time to write down and share. Never ever played t2k/2013 though.

I quickly dropped DnD for the 1st T2K. I'm currently trying to use V2.2 and the civvy careers and gear from T2K13. I've known of Paul Mulcahy's site for ever. My idea was to have a military campaign and "Homefront" featuring a NG unit abroad and thier families back home. I'm trying to find the many scattered notes.....

I thought that the Mexican drive towards Arkansas and Louisiana allowed the U.S. characters combat experience.

I assume you mean US characters that never went to Europe, Korea, Kenya or the RDF?

If so they could earn it for the fighting in Texas, AZ, CA and Alaska as well - so you could draw them from quite a lot of areas in the US and have them be combat veterans just from the fighting here.

I forgot to add 5TH ID(M) dependents, which puts the closest front in Texas. If one uses a later timeline, the PC's could be retired T2K era soldiers.

Hey everyone, thought I would say hi.
Bit of a background, played back in the day v1 & v2 now looking to get back in to gaming. I was on the T:2013 board (went under the handle: Kilt & Jump boots)
Real life stuff: work in a woodworking store (one of the other hobbies) and the other job is TV production work (camera operator)
I'm also an reenactor 1630 Scottish and also WW2 US airborne.
I see I can find some of the NPC ideas that I posted on the T2013 board and repost them here.

later.

For the new members there are several Twilight 2000 games going on online that you could join. I know of at least two myself and there are lots of others. If you are interested I bet you would find several opportunities to put your skills to good use.

Thought that I would say Hi as I am new here. I spent twenty years in the Army due to needs of the Army had the chance to try different jobs, but spent most of the last half as 89D. Currently work as a FLEO. Never played TW2000 much but love the setting.

Hello, new member from Switzerland. Long time role player (AD&D, Shadowrun and other) but my sole experience with TW2K is the computer game I found some years ago. Bought some books from the V.1 and must have a PDF from TW2013 (somewhere). Kind of prefer the original setting as it suits my childhood memories of the 80's. My background : I used to be deployed for peacekeeping operations in the Balkans and Africa as a LEO and for the (Swiss) army.

Thanks ! Well I will be more than glad to answer. I noticed that Cyclist units were discussed and Switzerland had cyclist battalions back then. We disbanded our Dragoons (Shock infantry on horseback) in 1972 and we still have packhorse units.

Hello everyone!

I'm Max; I'm a big fan of gaming (board games and RPGs); and allthough I only have a very limited experience playing T2K (one game of 1st Edition back in the mid 80s; and more recently running a d6 version of the game); I've been familiar with the game for a long time.

While in the home games I ran I used the d6 system (at the time I only had the 1st Edition; I have since acquired the 2nd edition and I'm interested in trying it out at some point int he future) and I also modified the timeline and storyline a little bit.....for example; I had no war between the USSR and China; instead I had them ally with each other; but that's another story!

Anyway; I'm glad to have found this site and in particular; I like to read about the actual game sessions and campaigns that people have played/are playing.

Thanks for running a great site and I'm happy to have found it!

-Max

Hi Folks,

I've been playing T2K off and on since it first came out in 85. I recognize a number of names her from various old forums (like the old Web RPG Town Hall) and Yahoo mailing lists. I hope to get ideas and inspiration for various PA scenerios.

Hi,
Just got hold of the PDF's of the T2K books. I only got to play a couple of a long time ago but always liked the setting. Played a lot of other games D&D, shadowrun, the terrible but easily accesable Palladium games, Cyberspace, Aliens, Dragon Warriors the list gets a little out of hand. But that happens when you play RPG's for years.

Liking alot of what I've had time to see on the forum so far.

Greetings all!
Been playing RPG’s since ’79, and I’ve always had a warm fuzzy spot for T2K. Just recently the nostalgia bug hit me and I rekindled my affection for this game. I got into the 2nd edition, but I have the 1st Edition modules and source material. I’m just about to start a campaign using the whole 1st edition “Vistula Epic” [Free City of Krakow, Pirates of the Vistula, Ruins of Warsaw, Black Madonna, & Going Home]. Hope to hit you up for some tips, and if my game kicks off, I’ll post some updates.
Till then, take care everyone!

Greetings from the Civgov heartland,
While I'm not a new member per se, I thought since its been so long I needed to reintroduce myself. I'm shrike6 or you can call me Brian. I've played Twilight on and off since the late 80s and was a part of the WebRPG forums back in the day. I've also played Dark Conspiracy, D&D and have played other games too. I like military history and am responsible for a handful of pieces in the archives of this forum.
