New Longturn scenario announced! Russian Civil War 1919

Post by Corbeau »

Thanks to Sketlux/XYZ, a new scenario game is being prepared on Longturn.net. After "German Unification" and "Voyage to America", in a bit over two months, when all preparations are done, players will have the opportunity to engage in and reenact the Russian Civil War of 1919.

In the words of the Scenario Maker:

This scenario will be based on the Europe scenario (classic giant map) but only encompass the territory of the Russian Empire in the borders of 1917. The playable nations will be all states that declared independence during or immediately after WWI (e.g. Estonia, Finland). Other nations that can be played are forces that played a role during the Russian Civil war (e.g. White Armies, Soviet Union, Green Armies) or the Expeditionary Forces (e.g. USA, France). All players start with cities or at least units like in the case of the Expeditionary Forces. This game will be based on LTX but with many more scenario game units. It will also have a new terrain forest type called taiga. New specials will be introduced as well. These changes require you to download the newest SG ruleset over the modpack installer to be able the play this scenario.

Please note that the nations differ severely in cities, armies and location. This game is by no means fair but tries to recreate the political and military situation of that time. Because of these differences, all players will get "mission cards" at the beginning of the game they must be achieved in order to win the game. If you have a problem with all these requirements or expect a game with an equal chance of winning please don't join this game. This game will be highly experimental! Game start around April. IMPORTANT: Please check the SG2 LT discord channel to get the newest information and for questions. PS: Players with little time can take smaller nations/forces that require minimal game play time!

We had a longer delay... We restarted registrations a few weeks ago. If someone wants to join the game, there are many different nations to select! Best of all, all nations are created differently. From bigger players with various cities to players with only units. So if you are on the fence about whether to join because of time constrain you can ask and choose one of the minor nations and the time you have to dedicate to the game will be smaller. However, mind that this game will have a big role-playing component so coordination between nations will be key, and the rough following of "mission cards" I give out at the beginning of the game is important.

Experienced players are preferred!

Last call! The game starts tmrw. Beginners or people who are just curious about what that scenario will look like are also welcome. The game will probably be rather short so no long commitment.

Below is only a small example of the new terrains and specials that will be featured. New WW1 tanks or and planes will also be part of the game.
