Serenissima's WW2 '36 BoP - Planning

Post by Serenissima » 06:45:46 Tuesday, 31 October, 2017

As there seems to be a clear plurality in favour of 1936, I might as well get the ball rolling. Been messing around with 1936 and 1939 maps, here's the 1936. Since it's reverse-engineered from a 1939 map, there may be errors. Stats are being worked on, with the help of a few people and based on previous 1936 games, and the rules are being modified a little to reflect the WW2-era setting - such as changing air strikes into Tactical and Strategic Bombing as seperate actions, and adding a technology system similar to the one Cephal's WW2 used.

The bare minimum nations needed to run the game are, naturally, Britain, United States, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and USSR, but of course, other nations are open and available, including the individual British Dominions, despite their shared map colour - it's after 1931 and the Statute of Westminster, after all. Players are welcome to express interest in nations to let others know their intentions and what they'd like to play, but this is not a sign-ups thread - I'll be doing proper sign-ups in future with first, second and third preferences listed from each player, and assigning nations that way.

What I -could- use, however, to speed up the process both before we begin and in-play, are any volunteers willing and able to help with the following:
  • Map updates in-play, checking the map for errors.
  • Checking the mathematics are correct for incomes, expenditures and credit bonuses on the stats, and spotting other errors and inconsistencies in the stats.
  • Historical World News flavour events unconnected to the action of the game.

Seems legit. I'd be in favor of joining. Dunno who I'd be interested in playing as yet.

Happy to help with stats and mapping, and I'll likely join up as well.

Would this take place in E1936, or perhaps L1936 so the Spanish Civil War is ongoing?

If you can do that part of the map so that it has the Nationalist and Republican battle lines as of the start of the war then I will consider later in 1936 more strongly. :p

Largely using the Revised Colour Scheme with some unused colours redistributed so the Spanish Communist colour is presumably the Republic.

A pretty rubbish attempt at the Civil War. If you want to start in L1936, and stop everyone metagaming the start of the civil war :P

Didn't research it down to every last detail, because many of the maps were conflicting, owing to the rapid advance of the Nationalists. But it's roughly correct, bar some probable messiness over just how much of the south was at this point in rebel hands, given the rebels in the main cities of the south.

Edit: updated to include Italian annexation of Abyssina.
