Sci-fi Fluff: Background for Off World

For my upcoming Off World rules, I am preparing some background fluff, a "future history" for players to use in games.  The fluff is by no means mandatory, and is mostly an excuse for me to have a bit of fun and burn some word document bytes.

Pulp Alley!

We played our first game of Pulp Alley today and had a fun time.  Definitely looking forward to more games in the future.  Here's a brief AAR and some pics.  Thanks!

Aliens, droids, and power armor: Off World playtest

Another playtest of "Off World" today---this time featuring the alien invaders known as The Amalgam, a polyglot force of symbiotic life forms, genetically engineered monsters, and worse--vs. human special forces, droids, and powered armored infantry.  There are some things I still need to tweak---but the game's playing well and the various stats and special rules are really making unusual, sci-fi-y forces stand out from regular troops.

Off World: Sample of play video

I am making good progress in writing Off World, the sci-fi version of my WWII rules.  I thought that a play-by-play would be useful, so that players can see how the game plays and get a feel for basic infantry combat.  And THEN I thought, what if I made a video version? So here is my directorial and narratorial (?) debut:

15 minutes long .  Thanks for looking!

Logging Road 2-16, Kyushan Highlands, Kyushu---Off World AAR

Hey all---we got another playtest of Off World in today. The United Nations of Earth and Mars Army, having taken over the occupation duties on the colony world of Kyushu after the UN Marines took control of the coast, are now moving into the highlands to pursue the shattered Kyushan Armed Forces.  The KAF has deployed militia troops and droid forces to cover their withdrawal.

The Column: A Sergeant's War After Action Report

I set up one of the scenarios available in my rules set, A Sergeant's War, for a quick game today. I had never actually played the game with miniatures, as I do my playtesting with paper and counters (to save time).  Here is a summary of how the game played, with plenty of pictures.
