PITS rule suggestions (thank you) Aldershot.


Here are some suggestions from the Aldershot area gamers.  You can use PITS for the following.

We thought these might be worth exploring as a starting point for further discussion ? I think it will be a lot more fun if people get into the spirit of things by re-writing the wording on the Wild Cards, and the Narratives to suit the different situations below.

 

1) Spanish Guerrillas vs French Army in the Peninsular War 1808-12
a) French patrol searching for guerrillas has to scout a village
b) French supply convoy needs to cross the table avoiding Spanish ambushes
c) A French General is inspecting the troops. The Spanish need to kill him as a propaganda coup
d) A French column needs to rescue a besieged garrison.

 

2) European troops/irregulars (British/Germans/Boers) vs Africans (Zulus/Xhosa/HeHe) 1830 to 1907
a) A punitive raid on the Africans Cattle – Africans have to prevent their livestock from being driven off.
b) European supply convoy to be ambushed
c) European led patrol to be ambushed
d) British/Germans send a relief force to rescue settlers besieged


3) Matabele / Mashona Rebellion vs Early Rhodesian Settlers 1896

a) Rhodesian/Britsih patrol seeks rebel stronghold in Matopo Hills
b) A patrol has to rescue settlers held up at Cummings Store (true story)
c) The siege at Mazoe Mine: 2 settlers need to reach a telegraph office to call for help. A patrol has to reach the settlers & get them to safety (true story)

 

4) US Cavalry vs Siuox or Apaches 1860s-1870s
a) Capture Indian Civilians at village to force them back to the reservation (what Custer’s attempted to do at the Little Big Horn in 1876).
b) Patrol hast to rescue 2 white female hostages from the Indians and get them off table (1950s western movie I watched at the weekend called Charge at Feather River)
c) The fort is surrounded – a patrol has to either repair the telegraph station and/or go for help at the next army post
d) British/Germans send a relief force to rescue settlers besieged

 

5) 1st Boer War of 1880-81 / Gurrilla phase of 2nd Boer War 1899-1902
a) Boers ambush a British supply column (Battle of Bronkhorstspruit - true story)
b) British have to seize a large hill overlooking the main Boer Camp (Battle of Majuba – true story)
c) British column is hunting the Boer Kommandos will they capture them or get ambushed themselves
d) A British Patrol has to burn the farm at far edge of the table and get back to their starting edge with the Boer women and children (taking them to a concentration camp). The Boers need to rescue the family.

 

6) Boxer Rebellion 1900
a) Capture or kill the Boxer leaders who are meeting at a village.
b) Rescue British or American Missionaries being held captive by Boxers

 

7) French Foreign Legion 1880 to 1930s vs Touregs/Berbers
a) Out of water, the Legionnaires must capture the well
b) Relieve the Fort at Beau Geste at all costs
c) Escort the archaeologists to safety avoiding the locals who are enraged by the “desecration” of the tomb of Djellibabi
d) A British Patrol has to burn the farm at far edge of the table and get back to their starting edge with the Boer women and children (taking them to a concentration camp). The Boers need to rescue the family.

 Some Further thoughts we discussed also included

8) French army patrols vs Viet Minh in Indo-China 1950s

9) Rhodesian army patrol vs Insurrgents in 1960-1980

 

I don't know if this is of interest, but let me know,

Cheers,
