1943 The Fascist scourge holds Europe in an iron grip.
Across the world, battalions clash and tanks burn.
But in the shadows, another war is being fought. A war of knives and bombs. A war of infiltration. A war of resolute action and a war of daring.
Enter the world of commando actions.
Where Sten Guns Dare sets you in the role as a British Commando squad, tasked with undertaking missions to undermine the German war effort.
Playable solo, with a GM or in a group, you'll find the following features:
*A quick and easy to use game, using the engine from Starport Scum.
*20 character traits are provided.
*Stealth rules are included, for tense infiltration missions (the stealth system originated in FiveCore)
*Random mission set up.
*Campaign rules, letting you fight to liberate a region from Nazi rule.
*Scenario friendly. We offer rules for things like radios and mortar fire, to make sure your commandos have the support they need... as long as the Gestapo doesn't get there first.
Where Sten Guns Dare is intentionally written to be a bit more open ended and "British", falling into the category of "tool kit" rather than "complete gaming tome with answers to everything".
As such, it's not ideal for gamers who want a competitive-oriented game.
On the upside, it means the entire package fits in under 50 pages, including the campaign rules.
Short enough to digest on a Friday night, comprehensive enough for a ton of fun scenarios.
Did I mention you get a bonus if you drink tea while you play?
