Update to the update

Since I am bad at naming things, it's been brought to my attention that the Five Parsecs update can get a bit confusing, since your enemies will have both a Leader and a Boss.

The idea is that it's basically a "Warband leader + lieutenant" situation, but the names don't really work for that.

The rules will stay as they are, but I'll rename things a bit next time around.

Five Parsecs update available

Five Parsecs From Home sees a small update today to 1.04.

Think of this as a "bridge" update, leading us to the promised land of...well, you'll see, but substantial improvements anyways.


New features are:

*A new "Personal items" table. You get a single roll on this table when creating your warband and it gives you an item that, typically, cannot be obtained any other way.

A nice way to give some an heirloom, custom item or stolen prototype gadget.

*The Character Events and Campaign Events tables have been improved.
I know a lot of you miss the more verbose original tables, so this is a first step towards that.

The new tables have a bit more text to explain what is happening. I've also tweaked a few of the results and some of them should be more exciting now.

I'll improve the character-creation tables too but that will take more time.

* When rolling up enemies, one of them will be a "Boss" with slightly improved stats.


Go ahead and download your new files when you get a chance.

Hammer of Democracy is crowdfunding now!




Since the last crowdfunding campaign was a pretty good success, we're going to try our hands at it again, this time with "Hammer of Democracy" - A full WW2 conversion of the Squad Hammer/Trench Hammer/Winter Hammer/October Hammer miniatures rules.

The goal is a big, beefy book covering pretty much everything you could want from weather rules to army generators to mission creation, all powered by the super-fast, negotiation-driven Squad Hammer engine.

Whether you are a hardened WW2 gamer eager for something new and less bogged down in detail, a new player curious about getting into WW2 action or even a complete newbie to miniatures game, we'll have you covered.

Why do we need a big chunk of money? Because this is going to be a big chunk of gaming book.
The goal is to do one of those big complete books, where you don't have to wait around for supplements and pay extra money just to play the army you'd like.
We're going to go all out instead.

If you are curious about the system, you can read this mechanics demo by the co-author of Trench Hammer

And if you want to go throw down some money for something that'll make you happy, you can do so right here:

Renegade Scout. Pinned has been pinned down.

Thanks to an alert reader, we caught a rather embarrassing bug: The rules for being Pinned appeared differently in a few locations.

The correct rule is as described in the Morale chapter of the rules: Pinned troops can fire at a -2 penalty.

I have added that to the combat rules hit modifiers and removed the reference saying Pinned troops cannot fire.

If you want to redownload your files, the updated version is on the Vault.
