I’ve seen your work and I dig it! I may well use the NWG generator for some flavor, as a matter of fact – I’m not sure if I’m going to characterize this as two post-Sphere of Influence “Eastern” states during it out or some kind of big power breakup. The former might again stray too close to “Yay, Commies, Yay Capitalism” and be distracting, the latter might be easier to swallow up as “Hard Liners” versus “Reformists” in a more generic but still engaging way.
That’s a great idea – the break-up of a larger state. If the reformers are backed by a rival power, that would help explain the differing equipment
Please keep us updated on your progress – I for one will be following it avidly!
