I was actually in the US Army during the period covered by T2K.

I was a tanker from 1990-2006, retiring then due to an injury, and was in Germany from 1990-1992. We used to play T2K in the barracks there. Later in my career I was assigned to the California Army Guard's HQ in Sacramento during the work week and to C/1-149 AR in Santa Cruz for drill weekends, part of 40th ID's 3rd Brigade.

One of my accomplishments while in Sacramento was helping the state aquire the MP Brigade headquarters that became the 49th MP Brigade, featured in some of the T2K lore.

This means that, if things really had gone as detailed in T2K's backstory I would have deployed with 40th ID to Europe so I've always been interested in what happened to it.

Welcome. Must have been interesting being in Germany during reunification, that's for sure.

Default From the land down under

I though I would drop in and say hi. I picked up 1st Ed when it came out. Yes I am old.

I have run a couple of long term campaigns using first and second Ed back in the day. I have picked up the new FL 4th Ed during the Kickstarter. I will admit to being a Free League fan boy.

I have just kicked off a new campaign using the new rules and I like it. I am using a bit of a mix of timelines for my campaign.

None of my players are veterans and my group ranges in age from early 20s to 50s

Hi there! Good to see the board getting some influx. I like to mix various timeline elements as well.

Happy gaming!

G'day all,

Long time lurker here finally checking in. T2K has a special place in my heart, it was the first RPG I ever owned and I love all the old-school GDW stuff. I've still got my 1st & 2nd Ed. box sets and I also picked up a copy of 2.2 on DTRPG last year plus the 4th Ed KS. I'm quite intrigued by the YZ rules and looking forward to trying it out.

Hello all from another new member.
I've always been interested in T2K, I bought the original when it first came out but never actually played or ran it, our post apocalyptic needs were always covered by Aftermath!.
I'm looking forward to giving the new version a crack now so I thought I'd join up here for some ideas.

Hey all, I've drifted through discussions on this forum for a long time, but decided to finally register as a user. Twilight 2K wasn't my first RPG, but I remember being captivated by the big multipage ad in Dragon magazine when GDW announced it. I've run multiple campaigns in the past, and I'm now beginning to think through a 4th ed campaign in the future.

Default Welcome @Claidheamh

Welcome! I've only played a bit of 4th ed (couple of days ago with my son) but looks fun so far. Wish you good play with your own experiences with it!

Hello,
I originally met T2K in the early 90s. Then we had the horrible idea in language school to do a Bosnian War campaign since we were all watching the Bosnian War on SCOLA every day for homework. I'm a veteran and I have academicked on things Russia/NATO. Since 2014 for some reason, I've had the urge to get back into T2K but only recently pulled the trigger and I am losing myself in the rabbit hole.

Welcome aboard, Kozmas! You're in good company here. A lot of us rediscovered T2k later in life. I look forward to seeing you around the forum.

Hi. I discovered T2K back when the first edition came out. By the time GDW released the second edition I had stopped playing TTRPGs altogether. I returned to gaming in the early 2000s. Anyway, I'm happy to be here. I have the fourth edition from Free League (played in a short campaign with some friends) and recently moved to Sicily (there are no gamers in my area, sadly). But I am looking to run an online game in the New Year and thankful for the resources on this forum.

Welcome, Marco! It's always good to see another author on here. Your list of publication credits sent me down a rabbit hole of links that promises to be expensive...

With your prior involvement with Handiwork Games, have you done any work on the upcoming second edition of Cold City/Hot War?

Thank you, Clayton. I love the Pacific Northwest Sourcebook so much! I haven't worked on the new Cold City/Hot War but I definitely want to check it out. Handiwork Games does great work.
