I'm working on a cooperative scenario for Stargrunt right now, as a
of fact.  I was plainning on running it at a future "gaming day." 
squads (one NSL PA Team, one NAC rifle squad w/armed utility vehicle,
ESU "Regulator" team w/armed vehicle, and a UN reaction team) all trying
reach a crashed Kra'Vak ship in rough terrain (swamp).	I just finished
making th board for it this evening.  The surviving 'Vak would be
by the GM, but would operate under some "automatic" rules.

I'll be happy to post after it's run, but don't hold your breath--that
be four or more months from now.
