What a cool resource for a history nerd, military affairs enthusiast, or total geek.


Myself, for instance.

BTW, sorry about that horrible embedded audio on the link I made above. Had my audio off and didn't know it was there until now. Great song, godawful midi file treatment...

When do they get around to making a hyper realistic naval combat sim real-time for the computer? I just replayed the Homeworlds and the whole time I was thinking “I wish these were real ships.”

Harpoon was great, but I want black powder and square rigs, damnit!

The rules this site has for Trafalgar seem to be to Wooden Ships and Iron Men what Volley and Bayonet is to Empire. Pretty neat stuff. I dig any beer and pretzels system half of the rules text are references for the curious.

(If you understood what that meant and live around Austin, I have some French Young Guard based for fifth edition Empire that are aching to come outta their box.)

Kind of the opposite extreme to Campaign for North Africa.
