IC: Recon (Palladium Books), but with a slight twist
Looking to see if there would be interest in a small unit Recon game set during an alternate event that happens during the 1968 Tet Offensive.

The Tet Offensive happens as it did in real life, but alternately a nuclear weapon is detonated over the North and South Vietnamese border, though no one knows who deployed it. The US makes a proper accounting of their Nuclear arsenal, minus one nuclear loaded B52 that  went missing a month prior to Tet.

The Russians and Chinese also make their stock piles known and account for their own arsenals, each of them missing one weapon as well.

On the ground, US troops try to make sense of the situation as both the North and South Vietnam are furious about the use of nuclear arms. The troops find themselves deep within enemy territory as the strain on relations causes allies to become enemies and the ARVN and NVA begin attacking US troops in retaliation.

Surrounded, hounded, scattered, the small US squad must try to make it out of Vietnam alive.

I've been interested in getting into a Recon game on RPoL for a while, and this seems like a neat take on things.

Thanks. I've been looking into more Recon lately and seeing as we all know how the Vietnam war ends in real life, I figured, 'Why not an alternate history take on the events,'. Hopefully this gains more traction in the coming days.

Been a long time and don't have the books anymore so I'd have to scrounge for them but it sounds like fun.  With the twist it makes things a big unknown.  Allies turn into enemies but do enemies turn into allies as they may be taking out the same aggression on the Russians and Chinese.  I'd be in :)

Okay, so we have three interested so far. Going to be busy with real life things for the next few days (MMA training, daughters birthday, family visiting).

So I'll start making some notes and by next week I'll pop something up on the "Looking For Players" forums.

Sound good?

Bare bones, but the game has a forum. More will come in the next few days slowly when I have time to gather things together.
