Who's up for adhering their forum name to a custom campaign game of By Stealth and Sea, by DVG Games?

I mean, who doesn't want to be an Italian frogman piloting a patchwork manned torpedo into a harbor full of pissed off Royal Navy scalawags, to put holes into Her Majesty's most excellent seaborne battle wagons?

The game comes with several customizable operator cards (which represent the 2-man crews in the game), so I can put two AD forum dwellers per card.

Been a long while since I've done an AAR, and there are not a lot of missions in this game (about nine I think). Besides, it's pretty brutal, so I'll need a lot of names. Suffice it to say, some may be shanghai'd into participation. :)

Awright! Thanks!

Attached is an image of the crew cards. The ones on the right are the historical operators from 1940, the year we start. So, technically, I really just need one more name to get started. Though it would be nice to pair two forum dwellers to each card. Otherwise I'll just do one plus one of the historical operators.

I'm transferring the skills from these cards to our cards, because the game is challenging enough without starting from scratch. In the historical first mission in September 1940, the three of the crew cards at right partook in that first ever raid, and they have skills, though the rules say in custom campaigns to not use skills. That's cray cray.

In 1941, 1942, and 1943, we'll have other crews to choose from.

You can certainly use my handle if you like though, none of the pics truly does me justice.  :nope:  I just hope my guy doesn't panic and get half the readership here killed.  :biggrin:

Not if you want to avoid stereotypes! I think I'm barely treading the line just by adding an i after Barth and Bayo, lol.
