Road to Armageddon - Modern Encounters for Twilight 2000


The Dogs of War have been loosed -- the world is fac­ing nuclear and biological Armageddon between com­peting, ruthless, power blocs -- powers aiming at noth­ing less than total victory and the complete destruct­ion of anyone who opposes them.

The struggle between these two Blocs has been going on for years, but has only recently become a Hot war -- the 3WW to the West, the Anti-Imperialist War in the Pact Nations and the New Jihad in the Em­irate ... and it has become a nasty one.

Your campaign will be set against these events and this book provides a comprehensive system for de­scrib­ing game region(s) and is compatible with TW2000 (though it replaces its Encounter System) and determining Encounters that may occur, planned or random.

Encounters are detailed in generic terms and large num­ber of detailed Encounters based on these are also provided -- and these include additional infor­m­at­ion to allow them to be further customised or to create custom encounters of the same general type.

The systems described herein may be used to describe the war affected areas of the world immediately prior to as well as after The Exchange.

The note in your introduction says you're working on the Road to Armageddon: Gear Book. Any news on how soon we might see that? Thanks.

Well, judging by how long it took me to do the rewrite of Modern Encounters, I'd say around six weeks or so. Depends, however, as I think there needs to be at least an optional rule (or rules) on how to handle maintenance and repairs and related matters in a more realistic way than the MYZ system used in the rules as they stand ... and that may take a while to figure out how to fit into the existing system (if possible) or at least make it not too painfully different.

And the Gear Book is currently available @ $24.99 ... or you can pick up Zombi Armour, Gun Trucks and Technicals, Vehicle Catalogue and Weapons Catalogue (the first is part of the Vehicles Chapter, the second and third are the relevant Chapters from the main book plus supplementary material) which are cheaper overall (but not by cost per page).

43 Generic Item/PlaceEncounters which can be developed by the GM (pp #33-43)

A detailed Chapter on Cardboard Characters (NPCs) ... also available as a standalone booklet.

90 More detailed encounters (some of which are variations on a basic one) (pp #65-213)

A Chapter on Diseases (also available as a standalone booklet) and on The Exchange, or details of the likely effects of a full scale (Counter Value) Nuclear War.

No Maps, sadly, but many locations could use those in the Box Set ... Ambushes, for example, could use the crossroads ...

241 pages not including cover, title pages and adverts ... only, what, about 20 pages less than the two books in the Core Set!

Just as a FYI, this is a rewrite of a book (same basic title) which was part of a successful 2015 Kickstarter Campaign ('Road to Armageddon') about a somewhat more recent but similar war as posited in Twilight 2000 (set in 20xx, probably the 2020's before real world events trashed...See more

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.
