Fire Mission!

So, the bug has bitten me, and I am running 2 sessions of RECON next week. Here is FSB: Orion, which will be the home of the Marines in the game. The players will be members of 1st Platoon Bravo Co. 1st Bn / 9th Marines (The Walking Dead). This is a quickly done map on paint. It ain't pretty but it works.

Like the new season rolling in, my ADD gamer brain has turned its attention to Vietnam or military rpg. I am currently reading Matterhorn by Karl Marlantes, a novel about Marines in Vietnam. Being a lover of military history - especially the Vietnam era (and a former Marine to boot), my brain screams at me - Run A Game About Vietnam!. So I oblige my brain for the moment and drag my old Palladium Recon & Advanced Recon out of the basement (along with a game called Ranger - which is a solo game of patrolling). 

Next, I go ahead and make a map for an AO (area of operations) with 3 firebases in a fictional map of Vietnam.

So, if the mood strikes, at least I am prepared to do something about it...
