Year: 2159. The war between the Vor'Tai and the Humans and Paxx has been raging for nearly 5 years. In 2157 the Vor'Tai had invaded the Chinese Democratic colony moon of Huanglin ("yellow woods") and completely took over the settlements. While humans still lived on the world, all communication to the outside universe had been cut off by the ruthless Vor'Tai. The Chinese Democracy wants their moon back, and assembled a task force with which to wrest it from control of the Vor'Tai. Centered on the armed Lotus Blossom troop transports, it was to be a surprise strike that would catch the Vor'Tai off-balance. Only... there was a Vor'Tai fleet in orbit about the moon when the Chinese ships arrived...

TABLE 4Close Action:Strachan Finds Allemand
SystemClose Action
Game MasterChris DeBoe
Players8 playersComplexityIntroductory
In autumn 1805--just before Trafalgar--Captain Zacharie Allemand's squadron cruised the eastern Atlantic, doing enormous damage to British commerce and avoiding Royal Navy forces so successfully that the British called them "the Invisible Squadron". Sir Richard Strachan was sent to hunt down the French ships; on October 15 he spotted Allemand's lights but never saw the ships, and the Invisible Squadron slipped away again.

This scenario postulates that Strachan was able to make contact. Four veteran British ships of the line face five French ships, including the 120 gun Majesteux.

Rules are Mark Campbell's Close Action, which is similar to Wooden Ships and Iron Men.

Twas a long, hot summer, made hotter by the fires of War. The off-world mercenaries in their behemoth tanks had finally won Peace, it was our turn to make that Peace last. Peace did not last. The second time round the coffers were near empty, new taxes were levied fast. The second wave of off-worlders were cheaper, leaner and perhaps less effective fighting forces. Winning the Peace was going to be harder this time...

On the battlefields of the future, armored warfare is faster and deadlier than ever. Hovercraft, tanks and powered infantry slug it out with tactical nukes. But the most feared weapon of all needs no human guidance. It's the giant cybernetic tank called the Ogre. After years of continuous warfare across Western Europe, the armies of the North American Combine are being forced off the continent. This scenario represents a breakout of a Combine force after it becomes separated and surrounded after a Paneuropean onslaught on the front lines.

TABLE 5Erster Kontakt: 1944
SystemBolt Action
Game MasterAaron Newman
Players4 - 6 playersComplexity
The Allied breakout and advance following D-day was even swifter than expected, while Russian forces steadily advanced on the Eastern Front after obliterating Army Group Center. By the end of 1944, it was clear the Reich would need a miracle to turn the tide of the war. In December of 1944, they received one. At first believed to be the crash side of a new Allied bomber or secret weapon, initial reconnaissance quickly revealed this to be something different, a craft of size and technological capability far exceeding that of either German, or Allied science. The Abnenerbe immediately ordered an elite detachment of panzergrenadiers and sturmpioniers to the crash site. Their orders: secure the Outsider craft, capture key members of its crew, and provide Germany with the wunderwaffe it needed to win the war.

Korangal Valley, the 'Valley of Death', as some members of the US Armed Forces referred to it. It was a haven for Al Qaeda and the Taliban, who were secreted away in the mountains all around Combat Outpost Korangal. Between them and the locals, who were hostile to the US 'invaders', it as an understatement that the US forces were having a difficult time of it in the valley. A number of soldiers had lost their lives in ambushes or all-out attacks on the outpost, observation posts, or other firebases.

In the chilly pre-dawn hours of October 31, 2007, Third Squad of Third Platoon, Battle Company, was sent out to reconnoiter the village of Darbart, half a kilometer away, after Army Intel deciphered radio traffic that indicated the Taliban were quietly gathering forces for a major attack on Outpost Dallas. Rumor had it that one of the higher ranked Taliban, Abu Ikhlas, a renown Egyptian commander, was also there. Shortly before Third Squad made contact with the village they were ambushed and contact with the squad was completely lost within minutes.

Battle Company commander Captain Daniel Kearney quickly released First and Second Squads to go out and rescue their platoon-mates. As the two squads drew within sight of the village, the radio suddenly came to life with frantic calls for help. The outpost was being attacked. No, actually, it was being overrun. Contact was then lost with the base.

Moments later First and Second Squads come under Taliban fire.

In this scenario, a high-speed force has swept past the defenses during a daring assault from the sea. Striking inland, the attackers attempt to smash as much of the local infrastructure as they dare before the defenders can organize and strike back.
