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.

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.

Default 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!

Default 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!

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...

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....

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.

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.

Default Hello

Just wanted to say Hi! Raiding these forums for material has already helped me tremendously in setting up my campaign that is about to go live, this Sunday in fact. We'll be running version 2.2 rules in a near-future 2020 setting based on a timeline I found here. When I can find it again I will make sure to credit the author and thank him here. Anyway, here's the Obsidian Portal page for our game:

P.P.S. Just wanted to thank Mohoender for his 'Another Modern Timeline', which I used as a base for a war winding down in the year 2020, mainly by adding a year of inconclusive political and economic war and both sides training and equipping new divisions since neither has their cold war forces. And also thank you Legbreaker, for your detailed analysis of the summer 2000 offeensive of the 3rd NATO Army that lead to the loss of the 5th ID, which I have also stolen to set the scene for my campaign.

Thanks guys!

Welcome aboard sir! Please check out the Forum Thread Map and add your thoughts to the various topics located there. If you have any questions about thread Necromancy, just ask Wallshadow. He's our resident Necromancer. Just watch what you're doing with that. Surviving WWIII is bad enough without having to fight off Eldrich Horrors too!

Good morning all

I'm going to assume this is the place to say hello and introduce myself. I'm simon, i've been playing T2K since I was about 13 when i GM'd a game for some friends. (yeah, i started early).

I was part of the team that worked on Twilight 2013 which, despite some of the criticism, was a blast to be part of.

I'm here now to keep touch with all things T2K and maybe break out my creative side and add some fiction.

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.

Since I've been away for a while, I suppose I need to introduce myself to the FNGs that have arrived after me.

Medic (both here and in real life, Finnish Army Reserves), the babbling Finn, who will not shut up, if there's a Finnish point of view to the subject (or a possibility to bring one in to the discussion).

And to those who know me, well, I've been multiplying. Our baby girl is now 20-months old and her baby brother six weeks. The latter one is a whopper - currently 6,49kg/14.5lbs and 60,5cm/2'.

Long time lurker. Registered awhile back but never posted (life tends to get in the way). This site has been a weekly stop for me. You guys are awesome!

Long story short: I come from a military family save for my old man, LOVED v.1 back in the day, always wanted to serve, unable to get into USMC OBC after college (high standards+wayward youth=no soup for you), joined the NG in an unnamed midwestern state in a misguided fit of patriotism after 9/11, ended up doing a ton of DOMOPS (post-Katrina, post-Gustav, lots of stuff in my tornado prone state) plus a very interesting tour in HOA and now after, after completing resident CGSC and getting a very interesting occasional AGR tour, I've made a semi-career of it.

Introduced my sons to boardgames, strategy games (Axis and Allies, Mem. 44) at a young age, which led, to my wife's chagrin, to D&D. Told them a few years back about an RPG which was "Army, but after the apocalypse". Now that they are teens and we have watched Red Dawn, Black Hawk Down, The Last Ship, The Day After, By Dawn's Early Light, and Jericho, I recently started a modified V.1 campaign set in 2030. They love it. I've stolen a great deal from the ideas on this web site so now I need to give what little I can back. I hope I can contribute.
