I am looking for 4 - 6 players (male or female) for a Twilight:2000 roleplay, using a streamlined homebake system (a mixture of Cyberpunk & Dog Town rulesets), for both character creation and task resolution. 

The game would be a 'classical' game of T2K in that the characters would all be ex-military (American and European militaries) with a series of 'modules' or 'adventures' in Western Poland/Eastern Germany with an eventual return to the CONUS on the books where there would be further 'adventures'.  I would naturally RP all the other NPC's and bad guys.  All the material used would be drawn from the original 2nd Edition books/supplements published by GDW.

There are only a few preferences that I have.

1. Males play males and females play females (I'm not against gender-bending, but just not for this game)

2. Posting would be a combination of longer RP type posts and then short sharp posts when it comes to combat.

3. I would prefer players who are able to commit to logging on and posting at least once every two days.

Knowledge of the game setting, a basic understanding of how military hierarchy works and a working knowledge of weapons and equipment from both NATO and the Warsaw Pact is helpful but not essential.

Any questions?


The game would be centred around the following published material (and not necessarily in this chronological order):

Free City of Krakow
Pirates of the Vistula
Ruins of Warsaw
Black Madonna
Castle by the Sea
Going Home!
Armies of the Night
Allegheny Uprising
Urban Guerilla
Red Star/Lone Sta

Hi there,

I haven't heard of "Dog Town" rules... What are they like? I love the Twilight 2000 setting, it was one of my first RPGs. So I have always loved the first version edition setting. I've been working on playing a variant of the Twilight 2000 campaign using the d20 Modern rules. I use to be on a T2k forum where one of the posters called Westrel had brought the first edition timeline into line with alot of the modern changes.

So let me know if you find anyone for this, i'd love a chance to play T2K again.
"Do you have any idea how we are talking about here? We are talking about the 'Butcher of Keiv'... The 'Cakemaker of Keiv' could kick all of our asses, and we are talking about the 'BUTCHER of Kevi'... Does that tell you anything?"

Story of the Accident...


Thanks Patriot, good to have you on board.  By all means, get the word out about my proposal, especially to the other E. members that you've RP'd with to generate some interest. 

Now that I've had at least one bite, I'll be posting more material over the next few days about character generation, the ruleset, background setting, etc.

First up, my homebake system works on the characters having template or archetype characters.  The ones listed below are the ones that are currently available - if there is a archetype not listed that you'd really like to play then by all means post here or PM me.

Twilight:2000 archetypes

1. Infantryman
2. Special Forces Operator
3. Military Police or Intelligence Agent
4. Doctor
5. Armoured Crewman
6. Mechanic

Each of these character templates have particular skills that all contribute to the group, allowing each character to have his or her 'moment' during the story.  The character templates will be posted over the next few days.

I found this and just had to share it... If there is anyone interested in a Twilight 2000 RPG please let us know, I have been working on setting up a T2K game using the d20 Modern system for fun while i was in the hospital. And I have alot of stuff that i've come up with. But that's besides the point. Please enjoy this little bit of humor!
