Not Just a Bush War: the Marxist Earth Succession of Bbore

A couple of weeks ago, I downloaded Not Just a Bush War by Nordic Weasel Games ($5.99 on Wargame Vault)... What you get is 14 pages worth of tables allowing you to randomize a Bush War imagi-nation from scratch, a 23-pages campaign syste (plus 1 cover, 3 pages of explanations, 4 of random events/images and 1 of designer's notes)...

Flag of Bbore: yellow is for the desert in the West, blue for the ocean in the East, black is for the People of Bbore in between and the white rat is for white parasites living off the People of Bbore... Or something! NJaBW doesn't provide a country name or flag generator so I rolled those on Peter Pig's AK-47 Republic tables...

Comics Imagi-Nations - Republic of Basran (Buck Danny, 2013)

I borrowed the latest Buck Danny (Black Cobra from Winis & Zumbiehl) from my brother just before he went back to sea... It's not the best Buck Danny album ever, but then again, it's never easy for new author and artist to take over a series.


In 2013*, after a F-22 is shot down while supercruising at 60 kft above Basran, Colonel Danny and his two usual sidekicks are tasked to conduct a series of covert ELINT missions to identify the weapon system that took down the Raptor...

Caution: spoilers!

Squadrons of Darkness - Task Force "Minos Freedom" and the Kubla Cartel

Facing the 1420th Imperial Strike Group we've got the Rebel Task Force "Minos Freedom"... Same drill: each player's alter ego is a lieutenant  (named using the same "Star Wars name" trick as the Imperials) commanding a squadron (with a "rainbow" naming scheme: the 4 original players had Red, Gold, Green and Blue squadrons). Again, NPC are generated as needed...
We briefly had an Indigo Squadron, but the player deserted the Rebellion and joined the Empire!
