Ray,

What do you have in mind for subject matter? Depends on interest level of subject matter.

New scenarios would be nice. New optional rules that folks have worked out as home rules? Things that won't trample the author's plans for additions/expansions to the system but doesnt have time to do himself.

I think a couple of big scenarios or missions would be cool. Where limited on house rules even though I have quite a few myself I use. They would have to be approved. Maybe a few really odd scenarios.

Something I really want to do is PBEM maybe we can work some rules and get a campaign going. Im doing the same thing for Science Fiction game and its quite a detailed project. But a lot of fun. 8)

A PBEM system would be interesting. I would definitely be interested in that, as well as exchanging some salvoes. Any thoughts on a test campaign? I'm sure Ray would vote for the Med. Any one else interested?

I would suggest developing two similar methods. For a campaign, I would recommend a referreed system, with both strategic and tactical turns. For a single scenario, a method where a ref isn't required.

Although it's going off on a bit of a tangent now, I think the first post of this thread if kept up to date HAS to be worth a Sticky.

Yeah we should move our talk but none of us have the power to complete your suggestion. But if Mathew is interested I would Voluteer to Moderate the VAS section alone as a MI Guy.
