Korean Peninsula Sourcebook (T2000 v1)
Korean Peninsula Sourcebook
From the mysterious Hermit Kingdom in the north¸ to the marvelous Land of the Morning Calm in the south¸ the Korean Peninsula Campaign Sourcebook is your guide to an exciting new setting for the Twilight: 2000 role-playing game. Korea's story is only hinted at in previous Twilight: 2000 publications. The Korean Peninsula Campaign Sourcebook picks up where those hints left off¸ building on them to craft a rich¸ novel environment for role-playing adventure in the aftermath of World War III.
The Korean Peninsula Campaign Sourcebook is not a single adventure module¸ but rather a toolbox containing an abundance of material designed to help referees create an exciting campaign sandbox of potential adventures set in and around the Korean Peninsula. In this volume¸ referees and players will discover:
- A brief history of WWIII in Korea.
- Overviews of Korean geography and culture.
- Orders of battle for the region's major combatants¸ including U.S. 8th Army¸ Soviet Yalu Front¸ the Republic of Korea Army and Marine Corps¸ and the [North] Korean People's Army.
- Options for creating South Korean¸ Japanese¸ Chinese¸ Australian¸ New Zealand¸ Gurkha¸ North Korean¸ Bulgarian¸ and Hungarian characters.
- Brief descriptions of the activities of regional intelligence agencies.
- Brief biographies of major personalities.
- Mission options and adventure seeds¸ including a horror-tinged mini-module.
- A gazetteer providing brief descriptions of dozens of places of interest in the region.
- Descriptions and specifications of weapons and equipment fielded by the South Korean¸ North Korean¸ and Japanese militaries¸ most never before detailed in official Twilight: 2000 publications.
The world of the Twilight 2000 Korea Sourcebook is built around the events of the timeline presented by the first iteration of Twilight 2000 (Version 1)- a divided Korea and extant¸ still-powerful Soviet Union- but is fully compatible with the Version 2.2 rules set. Referees should feel free to modify the setting to suit their own sensibilities.
