PostSubject: U-boat RP (DISCUSSION!)   Wed Feb 16, 2011 11:42 pm

I have been longing for a place to RP a U-boat scenario. WE could set it up in packs, which may give more people command of their ownsubs, or we could just have a single crew and have Gunther as Captain or something. I think the possiblities are pretty broad with this because there were many U-Boats operating and many encounters at sea. We could also open this up to an RP on a Destroyer crossign the atlantic in 41'-42'. Just a thought like to hear some feedback! Smile

Kracken, you are awesome! I've been considering this subject and researching it since last July. I have Count Rupert's Submarine game and was going to use that to put something together. The last idea I worked on was more of a War game than an RP, but a War game in a nutshell is an RP. You can RP a war game quite easily. Since portraying a 1942 British Corvette or American Destroyer in the North Atlantic in 1942 can be dull, my idea (with CRs suggestions) was to have each participant be a U-boat Commander. I would moderate the RP/game controlling the intelligence, the merchant ships, and the convoy escorts. I'd also let the participant know the outcome of encounters. Tell me what you think on that idea.

Souds great! I only mentioned a destroyer commanders postion just to counter the U-Boats. I just remember the Destroyer Command Game by ubisoft back in the day. On another note, it seems like the war game application would work better, with each person controlling their own sub. Wolfpack operations could be optional and possibly even scripted.

If you wanted to play as Doenitz you could even give medals to players that did well in the wolfpack actions, JUST AN IDEA Smile

Anyway, Im glad theres some interest in this subject. However, I wish there was some more activity on the forums. I am part of a realism unit for another game, I could try recruiting some peoples from there, if you want.......

They are a realism unit for the 29th Inf. We play a mod for Red Orchestra, its called Darkest Hour. Darkest Hour is probably the most realistic FPS on the market, meaning one shot, one death; and a myriad of other realistic things like bullet drop, gun sway etc.

Here's the Link: http://29th.org/

I served with the 29th Infantry Division from 1995 to 2003. My deployment overseas was with the 29ID (L).
Division Patch:


Tell me why I chose the painting depicted at the top of this forum? Look at the patches on the soldier's arms. That is an artistic rendition of the 29th ID at Omaha Beach, 6 JUN 1944.

Yes, I know, We re-enact the battles that the 29th had throughout France and Germany. Its very cool, however they are a pretty exclusive clan. I'm sure you'll have no problem with getting in if you want.....

My problem is getting my game to work.
I was reading a few of the passages, it would appear that someone or more of those guys are actual members of the 29th ID in the Virginia or Maryland Army National Guard.
