    The year is 1942 and the famed Afrika Korps has been dealt a great defeat at the hands of the mighty Desert Rats known as the British Eighth Army. The Desert Fox and his men are on the retreat back toward Tunisia and General Bernard Montgomery is not going to give the famed Field Marshal any room to perform any of his miracles. To prevent Rommel from retaking the theater of war in North Africa, Montgomery has requested from British MI6 to send in ahead of the Eighth Army an elite group of commandos to insure that the Afrika Korps cannot regain its feet ever again.


    You and your men have been charged to see to it that the Germans say goodbye to North Africa forever. You will be pitted against the best army the world has ever known since the days of Napoleon. You will be alone with no promise of reinforcements. Your only hope of survival is in your own confidence of your skills and your fellow men. General Montgomery and the Eighth Army are counting on your success! Failure is not an option in this war. For King and Country!


    You and your fellow countrymen have been dealt a terrible defeat at El Alamein. You're on the run back to Tunisia and the British have not let up on their persuit yet. Afrika Korps high command has intercepted enemy communications about future raids into German territory to prevent Rommel and you from turning the tables on the British... again. You are confident that the Desert Fox will regain the initiative again, if and only if, you and your fellow countrymen prevent the British commandos from succeeding in their missions. Whatever they may be. Sieg Heil!

    Game Mechanics

    The game is simple. It is December 1942 and the location is Tunisia, Africa.

    The British Commandos will consist of four to eight players and they will be sent on missions behind enemy lines to sabotage, assassinate, recon, and capture enemy assets and strong holds.

    The soldiers of Deutscher Afrika Korps (D.A.K.), a minimum of four players, are to prevent these commandos from succeeding in their missions until Field Marshal Erwin Rommel can regroup into a defensive position in Tunisia and turn the tide once more.

    I am also going to try and keep this game as much as possible free form. Meaning, you won't have to expect a Game Master update every time in order to play.

    Concerning Rank

    There will be one Commissioned Officer Captain and one Lieutenant commanding the British Commandos, unless we get tons of British. The rest will be Non-Commissioned Officers. I will be choosing who receives the CO ranks.

    The German players can be officers if they wish, however, the highest rank obtainable upon joining the game will be Hauptmann (Captain), next one is Oberleutnant (First Lieutenant) and Unterleutnant (2nd Lieutenant).

    Concerning NPCs

    If we only get the minimum number of players for either side, especially for the Germans, players can have up to a maximum of two Non-Player Characters that they can control.

    Understandable. The game will still be around when you do find the time so no hurry.

    Awww. You need to get a laptop, mate. ;)

    "I can taste failure."?

    Had to look up "kosten" in my book since I only knew it as "cost" and I doubt that is the context you meant to use.

    Okay. Good luck with the Army.

    Lol, Sorry.

    I was on vacation, and I just got back. I'm okay with this thread since I can't seem to conjure up some responsibility to run an RPG. Good luck, mitt.

    This game is still open to join. Just because the group from the other game has been kidnapped by DRL doesnt mean I'm giving up nor should you.
