War Story

Warstory is a set of tools for narrative wargaming scenarios. 

A narrative wargame flows more like a role playing game or storytelling game. Ideally suited to cooperative, solo and Game Mastered play, players use simple tools to declare actions, resolve them and build the ongoing storyline.

Send forward an RPG team to knock out a tank? Storm an enemy position? Carry out a combined arms attack? Deliver a stirring speech to a demoralized subordinate?

Simply determine the odds and roll for the consequences.

While written with a 20th century framework in mind, the rules could be adapted to most any period and any scale of warfare, from man to man skirmishing to battalion or brigade level warfare.

* * * * *

Warstory includes tools for resolving common actions, a simple and fast scenario and force generator, random event tables and more.

Please be advised that this is not a strict, extensive rules set, aimed at providing answers to every possible situation. 

Warstory is heavily inspired by the "Kriegspiel game" approach to wargaming, where storytelling and creativity take the forefront.

To what extent does this integrate with LaserStorm, since this has its own movement and combat rules? For example the random generator works very well with LS as there is little overlap.

You'd have to pick one or the other for the movement and combat.
My gut feeling would be to use laserstorm for combat, but use the War Story components for additional actions and random occurences and run it as a more narrative exercise.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
