flyingmice:
Flying Mice Games and Better Mousetrap Games are pleased to announce the release of In Harm's Way: Aces In Spades. The second game in the In Harm's Way series, Aces In Spades concentrates on fighter pilots in the Great War, World War I, You can be French, British, American, or German pilots; going up in fragile wood and cloth planes, barely a decade after the incention of the aeroplane, determened to shoot down other brave pilots.

Aces In Spades uses the same system as the original In Harm's Way, with troupe play, Honor/Practicality mechanic, advance in career by Notice and Interest, and advance in skill by time.

Aces In Spades features a new aerial combat system using markers to represent potential and immediate energy as your aeroplane swings through maneuver after maneuver, generating complex dogfights. The file also contains 16 custom dogfighting sheets for the most famous of Great War fighters.

Aces in Spades carries the tradition of In Harm's Way: A Napoleonic Naval Roleplaying Game on into a new dimension.

Chat up French girls, play Ragtime jazz, escape from No-Man's land. drink excessively, get into thoroughly illegal duels, sing sentimental songs, get married, get involved in political intrigue, solve mysteries, cure alcoholism, and get into brawls, wander the French countryside lost and thoroughly drunk, set yourself on fire, and drive over the countryside in a motorcycle and sidecar whooping like madmen  - in addition to strafing, bombing, busting balloons, shooting down aircraft that are strafing you with a handgun, rigging a hated fellow pilot's plane to break down, harassing other pilots, capturing an enemy plane, and catching spies - at least that's what my group did. :D

It will be on sale in print shortly - I'm just waiting for the proof copy to OK it.

Play Blackadder IV: Blackadder Goes Forth. (insert Lord Flashheart quote here) :keke:

You could also watch The Blue Max for some inspiration. There are some excellent movies and books in the game's bibliography you can mine for ideas. My favorite idea mines were War Story and Goshawk Squadron by Derek Robinson - I particularly stole the "sadistic" Flight Leader who made his men's (the PCs) lives hell to prepare them for the war, believing their best chance was to harden them as quickly as possible. He ended up plowing into a big German bomber to avoid slamming into one of the PCs, who had made a supremely stupid move right in front of him. The PCs hated him with a passion, but truly respected him.
