So I am a sucker for World War 2 - every aspect of it. The very first game I ever GM'd had over 2000 posts to it over the course of one mission. I am looking to recreate that sort of game with the following.
This will ONLY work with a dedicated group of skilled writers. I need at least 6 Players to fill in the squad. I will allow up to 8 players to join. Here is a tentative list of roles needed (with names filled in to make it look better). The Mortar Team Leader + Assistant will be available if 8 people show interest in joining the game:Red Roles Are Taken504th PIR, 82nd Airborne Division

"Everyone here must have done something very right or very wrong to end up in this unit. Regiment has been working with the OSS and the SAS to build a Special Action Detachment here in the 82nd. Several months ago, we put out call for the toughest sons-of-bitches in the Armed Forces from all our Allied countries. The idea is to assemble a group of troopers from the US and Great Britain, from Canada and Australia, heck, from all over the place -- and to see if these men can fight together as a unit. We are going to be tackling some tough missions, so we requested proven soldiers that were self-reliant, intelligent, and mean as hell. And,to be blunt about it, your names came up. So you all should be very proud to be here. But don't start patting each other on the back just yet -- we've got a long road ahead of us, and some tough times. I'm going to introduce you to Grant Gamble -- he's my executive officer and is platoon leader for first platoon. He is going to read off your platoon assignments."
The original game was platoon-sized, with a few PCs in each squad allowing for NPC Cannon Fodder. Using a simplified rules system to determine combat, the original game had something like a 75% Casualty rate (KIA and WIA) but that was mainly due to a surprise appearance by a Panzer Grenadier Unit complete with a Panzer
It might be more logical to split the PCs in this one up into two squads to allow for some NPC Cannon Fodder, but those sorts of details can be worked out later. For Combat and the like, I will draw up some ugly looking maps and overlay a grid on them, marking player positions and enemy positions as best I can for a little more 'realism'.
