Where Sten Guns Dare

$9.99

1943. The Fascist scourge holds Europe in an iron grip.

Across the world, battalions clash and tanks burn.

But in the shadows, another war is being fought. A war of knives and bombs. A war of infiltration. A war of resolute action and a war of daring.

Enter the world of commando actions.

* * * * *

Where Sten Guns Dare sets you in the role as a British Commando squad, tasked with undertaking missions to undermine the German war effort. 

Playable solo, with a GM or in a group, you'll find the following features:

*A quick and easy to use game, using the engine from Starport Scum.

*20 character traits are provided.

*Stealth rules are included, for tense infiltration missions (the stealth system originated in FiveCore)

*Random mission set up. 

*Campaign rules, letting you fight to liberate a region from Nazi rule.

*Scenario friendly. We offer rules for things like radios and mortar fire, to make sure your commandos have the support they need... as long as the Gestapo doesn't get there first.

Where Sten Guns Dare is intentionally written to be a bit more open ended and "British", falling into the category of "tool kit" rather than "complete gaming tome with answers to everything". 

As such, it's not ideal for gamers who want a competitive-oriented game. 

On the upside, it means the entire package fits in under 50 pages, including the campaign rules. 

Short enough to digest on a Friday night, comprehensive enough for a ton of fun scenarios.

Did I mention you get a bonus if you drink tea while you play?

The preview is blank. If you have previous Nordic Weasel titles, does this add anything?

Im not sure why the previews bug out sometimes. I thought it was due to the game files being too big, but this one has a relatively small size.

If you own Starport Scum and the stealth rules from FiveCore 3rd edition, you could cobble together something not too different from what you get here.

The campaign rules are new, but they are not /that/ different, in the big picture.

The biggest thing would be the new traits and rules for the different enemy classes I suppose?


Does that help?

Yes, thank you. I was wondering if the new traits and rules would be useful
in a sci-fi commando campaign.

They could, but they are intentionally rather "British" in nature (and slightly irreverent), so I'd feel a bit uncertain recommending it purely on that basis.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
