Hi all,

I am doing RPG/Wargame product overviews on my podcast, "Live from Pellam's Wasteland," and I just did an episode on Not Just a Brush War. Here it is: https://anchor.fm/pellamswasteland/episodes/11-Overview-Not-Just-a-Brush-War-by-Nordic-Weasel-Games-e4561e The overview basically just goes over what's in the pdf, which is mostly a list of the random tables that are included and how they can be used to develop a random nation and military and then running an actual brush war campaign.

If you're not interested in listening to the overview, I can tell you that I think this is a very cool product that does exactly what it says on the tin.

Thanks,

Arlen Walker

Published by Nordic Weasel Games, Not Just a Brush War. Brush war campaigns for any war game system is apparently a departure from their usual product range, in that it is system agnostic and not designed to work specifically with one or more of its other products. It is clearly aimed at wargamers, specifically those wargamers focusing on the brush wars of the last century, this century and the near future. The pdf has twos ections. The first section consists of tables for generating "imagi-Nations" for wargaming, these tables cover about 10 pages and are designed to be modularm, so that a player need not use all of the tables if desired. The last section is about 28 pages long and covers campaign rules, designed to overlay your wargames rules, again, they are modular and you need not use them all.

While not aimed at Sci-fi (my favourite genre) I can definitely find a use for this pdf in both my wargaming and roleplaying games. There are even rules for figuring the relative tech level of the imagi-Nation and a table for generating the name of military operations, I rather like this table and will definitely use it a lot.

I'd definitely recommend it.

I deducted one rating point, only because it is not broadly useful across all game genres. Having said that it would still be fairly easy to adapt it to your favourite genre.

I thoroughly enjoyed developing a fictional nation using this imaginative and easy-to-use document. The rolls worked out perfectly. The extra features, like the table to randomly generate a photograph subject for the campaign, are great additions.

Delivers as promised, a 20th century "Imagi-Nations" brush war campaign. The Nation Generator gives an unlimited number of scenario seeds, from internal struggles with separatist movements and criminal cartels to proxy wars with "First World" controlled puppet states. The Campaign system integrates the political struggles of a nation at war with virtually any late 20th century combat game. It takes very little work to extend and adapt the system for near-future scenarios or even far future brush wars on colonized worlds.
