T2000 v2 The Pacific Northwest

PDF
$9.99

Internal strife wracks North America's last breadbasket.  Soviet troops occupy Vancouver Island.  Fascist New America holds power in Idaho.  Disillusioned soldiers and long-frustrated separatists carve out their own pocket kingdoms.  Cut off from the central military government strongholds, Seattle's Western Redoubt is on its own, critically low on fuel, ammo, parts – and hope.

The Pacific Northwest is a campaign setting sandbox for use with Twilight: 2000, GDW's role-playing game of survival in a devastated world.  It details the geography and status of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and British Columbia, previously touched on only briefly in sourcebooks and adventures.  The tools it gives referees and players to craft stories in this region include:

  • The region's history from the prewar years through May 2001;
  • Detailed information on the agendas, leaders, capabilities, and territories of the region's four major factions: the Milgov-aligned 47th Infantry Division, the Cascadian secessionist movement, New America's Idaho cell, and the Soviet 62nd Motor Rifle Division;
  • Several minor factions suitable as local color, adversaries, or allies;
  • A look at the inner workings of Operation Egret, Milgov's fragile logistics network connecting its Great Plains and Mountain West holdings;
  • Advice on running a campaign in the Pacific Northwest;
  • New career options and personal equipment for civilian and military characters; and
  • 22 new land, sea, and air vehicles appropriate for use in the Pacific Northwest and other Twilight: 2000 campaign settings.

The Pacific Northwest aligns with the events of the timeline published in the first edition of Twilight: 2000.  It is fully compatible with the version 2.0 and 2.2 rules sets.

I'm putting this on my wishlist because I think I will have to know how the Russians invaded British Columbia. I mean, you could. For some locations, you might. But the nuclear strikes according to GDW's Challenge put a fair number of nukes around Vancouver Island on the mainland near the major centers. There's a lot of mountainous, rough territory and in the post-war period, I expect some of those valleys would be pretty miserable places for anyone not from those spots (including Canadian gov't, US forces, or Soviets). Anyway, that'll make for some fun reading to see how the Russians 'invaded' B.C. and to what useful end.

Really outstanding sourcebook that follows well in the footsteps of GDW-I would swear it was 1987 again. Hopefully more CONUS Twilight:2000 sourcebooks will follow-the Great Plains, the Great Lakes region, the Ark-La-Tex or the Ark-La-Miss. Highly recommended work!

Wonder if any of the unpublished GDW Twilight:2000 material (such as Death on the Vistula or Armor) that were assigned product numbers but were never published will finally be released?

With Free League opening up third party options for the new version of Twilight 2000 (link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1192053011/twilight-2000-roleplaying-in-the-wwiii-that-never-was/posts/3280968), are you considering converting this to 4e?

By the way: awesome supplement.

Thanks, Thomas! At this time, I am not looking at a 4e conversion. My spam filter erroneously caught the reminder email at the end of the Kickstarter campaign, so I missed my chance to back it. I'll pick up a retail copy to support my FLGS, give it a close read, and make my determination then. Obviously, this sourcebook hinges heavily on the plot points of New America and the Soviet invasion of British Columbia, so I'll need to see how 4e handles those (if it does at all).

Thank you for releasing this. I purchased it, and I have a question:
What adjustments do I need to make to the timeline to bring the v1 timeline you used in concurrence with v2.2?
Thank you.

Hey, Dennis. My apologies for the delayed response. I don't think any timeline adjustments are necessary to make this module work for the 2.2 timeline. Page 234 of the Big Yellow Book mentions the Joint Chiefs controlling an enclave in the Pacific Northwest, Soviet troops in cantonment in parts of Alaska, and active separatist movements. As no equivalent to Howling Wilderness was ever published for 2e, I'd feel free to extrapolate those fragments into something that very closely parallels their 1e equivalents.

Can work with 1st or 2nd edition. Lots of information to run adventures in that part of the US. Anyone with the older editions this is a great book to have. Thank you for writing this.

Is it possible to get this in paper format?
While I can read a PDF (having a computer, obviously) I only use materials in printed form due to my personal quirks. ;)

PDFs are fine for archives, but my mind only works well leafing through the pages in my hands.

And yes, Thanks very much for making this for 1E - its the only edition I have (the later ones never seemed interesting to me).

I think it occupies a hazy middle ground. :) I wrote it on spec, not under contract, but Marc Miller accepted it for distribution under the GDW/Far Future Enterprises banner.

Just bought it and it's great. Clayton really knows the political situation in the PNW, from the large Mormon minority in eastern Wa/Idaho, to the gothic/punk subculture of Oregon. One thing he might want to edit, however, being as I grew up in the Tri-Cities, (this is a really small thing to notice), is that up until the '70's, Pasco, Wa. had the largest rail roundhouse in the world. On page 12, instead of sending oil west to Lewiston then upriver, they would have sent it all the way to Pasco, at which there is a deepwater port on the Columbia.
Other than that slight oversight, this is a must buy for anyone who loves Twilight 2000.

Burned by local knowledge! :)

Thanks for the input on Pasco, Scott. My use of Lewiston was intended to align with Howling Wilderness, which states that Milgov was using the Snake River for fuel shipments from Colorado. To maintain consistency with that, I had to somehow rationalize barge traffic on the Snake, as well as overland transport to get from Colorado to the navigable portion of that river. I could find no good direct rail route from Colorado to a Snake River port, so, after a lot of screaming and throwing notebooks, we got to the Rube Goldberg lash-up that is Operation Egret. Having said that, I'll keep Pasco in mind for possible future additions or adventures... its location at the Snake/Columbia confluence makes it important in its own right.

The history and setting material is written to the v1 timeline, picking up several plot threads introduced in Howling Wilderness. There's nothing in the v2.0/2.2 timeline to contradict it, though. The mechanical bits - new careers, vehicles, and equipment, as well as weather rules - are written to the v2.0/2.2 rules set.

If there is no preview, a page count would have been nice so one has an idea what they are buying.

It's in the details list at the right.

But, yes, a preview would be nice!
(But note, it has only just been added, they may still be working on it.)

Thank you for noting that! I had the same question, and for some reason my phone always aligns on pages here so that I can’t see it, to the point I sometimes forget it’s there.

My apologies. I should have included that in the catalog info. As others have said, it's 121 pages (including cover and front/end material). Total word count is around 65,000.

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.
