Alright people, we got six days until game-time! If you have not yet signed up on myRPG (http://myrpg.ca/
), I'd ask you to please do so! Remember your role when prompted to choose so. There are still slots available if anyone else still wants to play! Quick reminder on the date/time: Feb. 26th, 7:00PM EST is when we'll log on. I'll give a little rules run-down and make sure everyone's character creation went smoothly!
See you then!
A LITTLE THING: I don't know if everyone has the time/ability to do this, but here's a list of outside sources that could help for the game. They're all movies, because I don't expect you to find/buy a book and read it before Sunday.We Were Soldiers
, starring Mel Gibson. It is actually about the unit the PCs are part of. Takes place a few years before our game, but none the less can set the scene.Apocalypse Now
, takes place in Cambodia a bit, but it really focuses on the horrors of warfare. And Vietnam in general. Starring Daddy Sheen.Platoon
, starring a young Charlie "Not-Warlock" Sheen, it follows a young man who volunteered to serve, and watches as everything falls away.Full Metal Jacket
, by Stanley Kubrick. It gets pretty in-depth with the people on the ground. Also famous for "Me love you long time."Green Berets
, by John Wayne. Considering the PCs aren't Special Forces, this really doesn't apply. But it's still good. *shrug*Forrest Gump
has a bit of Vietnam and the 'war' back home. My favorite effect is Gary Sinise's lack of legs.
Well, that's my two cents. They're just there to give you a little inspiration to your characters and for roleplaying scenarios.
