"The War has raged for years The high-tech ammo is almost gone. High-tech equipment is failing, piece by piece, with no spares to fix it. The front lines are held by a few grim, desperate soldiers.The US 5th Division holds the line in Poland. Now, a Soviet encirclement has cut it off in a province ruled by ambitious warlords, local militias, and bands of marauding deserters. HQ is 200 klicks to the rear and powerless.
Your last order sets you free...
Good Luck. You're on your own."
And with those words the Rpg Twilight 2000 came into being from Game Designer's Workshop. And life was never the same again. Twilight 2000 was innovative, &a very stark a product of its time in Ninety Eighty Five. I remember seeing that reveal in Dragon magazine. Wayne's Books has a whole reference section on Twilight 2000 here. They'll be a whole other blog post on memories of Twilight 2000 rpg another time. Needless to say that there's a whole fanatic cult following of the game to this day. And this brings us to the free T2000 fanzine issue #1 that we discovered very recently. It reminds us of the 'Eternal Soldier' fanzine that Game Designer's Workshop put out.
And there's an advertisement for Tw2000 rpg combined book by Far Future enterprises.
We've played with this book going back to 2012 or so, this is the preferred version of the game because it contains everything that's needed to really give the Twilight 2000 rpg a go. So why Twilight 2000 important? Because for years now we've used it as a reference & back door into original Traveller rpg as a military alternative Earth add on. No lies here its been in circulation among the crowd of players here for years.
