A Nation Ransomed (BRP)
A Modern Military Adventure for Basic Roleplaying
A Chinese nuclear submarine bearing a dozen missiles¸each with a nuclear warhead¸ reported a major mechanical malfunction and would return to port. The ship is late. World governments receive a broadcast from the captain of the lost submarine¸ demanding that Japan¸ Taiwan¸ and South Korea surrender to the Peoples Republic of China by midnight -- to be absorbed into that great nation. If they refuse¸ a random city in those countries will be destroyed each hour thereafter. Civil panic has overwhelmed the government's ability to deal with this terrorist threat.
This is a modern-day military adventure for Basic Roleplaying¸ one of the winners of the second BRP Adventure Contest.
