Gzg-l mailing list think I may work
from it.  Last night I was looking through an RPG I had
written several years ago and realized why this has a problem, the same
problem my RPG has.  It's a set of mechanics that are slightly more
detailed wargaming rules.  It doesn't have anything to encourage

It needs some rules to allow the heroic characters to have a chance of
I'm thinking of fortune points.  I'm not sure what they should do yet.

I'm also thinking of a system where the _player_ describes the negative
of a bad role.

This is a quote from Ken Burnside of Ad Astra Games:

" 3) When performing an action, the sequence is this:
Describe it! (go for that Upshift, it's why it's there!)
Roll the dice.
If the player rolling the dice succeeds, the GM describes what happens.
If the player rolling the dice FAILS, the PLAYER describes what happens,
can, by clever description, mitigate the result. "

I'm looking for more suggestions of this sort.

One of the drivers is I would like to GM Stargate, it makes for easy
sessions and 1/2 my group lives 5 hours away in
Atlanta.  The other driver is a platoon of GZG Dutch painted in Desert
Camo.  I need to get as much use out of these guys
as possible.  Now if I could only find not-Jaffa.  Heck, I'd be happy to
an extra USD per fig to buy licensed 25mm Jaffa,
but that's just me.
