Title: Ambush! by Forum - Mission 2
Post by: Barthheart on November 11, 2015, 11:14:39 AM
Ok, I know it's been a while but I'm about ready to start up a second mission.

So recruiting is now open. Looking for 8 soldiers to take an active part in this mission. Men returning from the first mission will gain some skills/experience from the last mission.
No knowledge of the game is required to play along.

I need about a week to get past some current efforts, so that should give us enough time to fill the ranks.

Who's in?

One of the Germans should be replaced by Bawb's Flying Stache.

Great! That's 5 so far, including Bob Mk II... we'll just call him Deux (pronounced "Ducks") for short.  ;)

OK we're up to 6. We can do the mission with only 6 guys but I think you really (hint) want to have the full 8.

So go out and recruit some more soldiers.... I think Star was interested last time I'll ping him. OR we can have a couple of meat bags that everyone controls.

I'll try to respond. I'm going out of town very early Saturday morning and we'll be gone for two weeks, but I'm pretty certain I'm bringing my work laptop with me at least.

Post by: Barthheart on December 16, 2015, 08:12:24 AM
No worries. Enjoy the holidays. I expect this will be very slow until the new year... in fact we may not start up in earnest until then as I'll be out of town from Jan 5 to 9.

LOL, I'll have to try to remember how to play. Maybe this time I won't have to "go find" the Bazooka.
