Afghan September

Picture from Pete Ess

This scenario is set ‘soon’, ‘somewhere in Afghanistan.’

Taliban player

You arrive on the table at B

Your mission is to visit Ramkhil’s village and ensure the inhabitants are aware that the Taliban is now in charge. Because of its strategic position you have been given two bunches of stalwart fighters who are to act as the garrison and incidentally as your body guard as you ensure the new order is respected.

The bunches you’ve got are an unknown commodity. When each first comes under fire roll a d10

1,2,3,4   They’re thugs

5,6,7,8,9  They’re gunmen.

10           They are riflemen.

Then roll for their aggression as normal.

Each bunch is ten strong and is piled into the landcruiser.

Magic

You get to decide whether you want to be a technomage or a shaman. (Technomages are good with technology and getting artillery to land in the right place. Shamans are good at talking to people and have a high chutzpah. They are the ones who can cast spells best and also get artillery support. They’re just not as good at getting it to land where they want.)


You have the following artefacts.

  • Mobile phones. All your bunches have men with mobile phones. At the start of the game roll a d10, on a 1 there’s no signal.
  • Radio operator. You can contact units off table.
  • You have ‘The Book’ in that you can use your men’s religious convinctions and can cast the spell ‘True Faith.’
  • You have mirror shades and can cast the spell ‘Cool’

Demons you can summon.

Artillery. There is a regular artillery support available from units that have apparently pledged their loyalty to the new government.

Reinforcements.

There are other Taliban units in the area. When you attempt to summon help, and are successful, roll a d10 for which you get. Your reinforcements arrive at either A or B (toss a coin.)

1,2,3   “All our lines are busy at the moment – Please be patient. We will be with you momentarily – PAUSE – Have you already visited our website? Your concerns are important to us, please hold the line, you will be connected as soon as possible. – PAUSE – Just a moment please, the next available team member will be there for you shortly.” Re-roll next move.

4,5,6,7 One MGIAT and two bunches of infantry in landcruisers

8,9,10  Two MGIAT and three bunches of infantry in landcruisers

For the strength of reinforcement bunches roll d6+4 for each one.

Your mission, to drive into the village and drive out any forces that are hostile to the legitimate government of Afghanistan.

ISK Player

You are leading the forces of the Islamic State’s Khorasan Province and want to defend this area from those who would truckle under and pander to the Great Satan.

These lackeys of evil will doubtless attempt to attack you and hence you have three bunches of fighters to defend Ramkhil’s village. You may set up anywhere below the dirt road that runs from D to B. You expect the enemy to arrive at either A or B. Any reinforcements will reach you from C.

The bunches you’ve got are an unknown commodity. They’re d6+4 figures strong. When each first comes under fire roll a d10

1,2,3,   They’re thugs

4, ,6,7,8,9  They’re gunmen.

10           They are riflemen.

Then roll for their aggression as normal.
