Force on Force - Getting News

Today we went on with our Kharum campaign and it truly was another sad chapter for Kharum Group of unidentified gunmen took hold of one major TV and radio station. Allegedly these men were members of pro Miracle faction. Some of them were caucasian and maybe foreign mercenaries.

The game we had tonight was my adaptation of a scenario from "Gold War Gone Hot" campaign book, which is actually about Warsaw pact fighting Nato in Europe during 80's. But the scenario fitted and it had many interesting features, so it went to Kharum.

This fight was about two local factions fighting over a TV and radio station in small town in Kharum. Just before sundown well organized group of militia entered the town and started attacking TV station. Poor defenders were taken totally by surprise and quickly one out two initial guarding groups were gunned down. Seeing this overwhelming attack happen, local men joined the attackers and turned against local warlords men, maybe for a revenge or some other reasons. Soon after the fire fight broke some mysterious masked group of well organized men arrived on the high point in a roof. These men were wearing sporty civilian dress, but everything was telling they were'n civilians. More like well trained soldiers armed to teeth. This is now second time these men appear into scene seemingly supporting attacker in very similar operation.

Only few reinforcements arrived sporadically but they couldn't turn the situation. So quite soon up link house was taken and soon after that actual station fell to the hands of attacker. The remaining defenders sold their souls bravely. At some stage the pride of local warlord rolled in a form of armored car and there was some nervousness among the attackers. But after flashy entry the armored car was hit by RPG and the main gun was knocked out. After this humiliation rest of the town turned and remaining local militia withdrew into deepening shadows of African night.

Once again nice and eventful game. I was in a role of local defenders and after loosing the initiative from start never managed to gain it back. But still very good game with many cinematic turns. I think the adaptation from cold war Europe into Africa worked well. Maybe once again, bit more power for defender at start.

Now the events in Kharum will stay put over the Christmas. There will be more news from Kharum in January 16, stay tuned.
