Twilight 2000

It was no surprise that it went to hell. Most things have in the last few years.  Some say it didn’t have to be this way.  Some say history could have  taken a different turn. If the Soviet Union had collapsed back in ‘91 when it was on the ropes. If the Gang of Eight  coup against Gorbachev had failed, the world would have looked very different today.

Some say. I think it’s bullshit. This storm was always coming, sooner or later. It doesn’t matter anymore, anyway. Now, all that matters is to survive each day.

It’s all up to us now. Our squad. Jonesy. Diaz, driving the M113.  That Polish girl Kasia. The men and women around me. No one else will come to our rescue. The final words from division HQ,  before they signed off for good, left little doubt.

“Good luck. You’re on your own now.”

Twilight 2000 is an updated version of the classic RPG of a WWIII that never was.  Characters trying to make it from day to day in a war ravaged Poland.  Using a variation on the YZ engine and tools for hexcrawling/exploration the game is gritty and fairly difficult.
