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.

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.

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.

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.
