Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Started playing with AD&D 1e and GMing with AD&D 2e. Ran D&D 3.x, 4e briefly, then became a fan of indie games and the OSR. Particularly fond of GMless and short-form games because they suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

What does "PJs" stand for? (Other than "pajamas"?)

Also, it's designed by Fred Hicks, for what that's worth.

Based on this review, it sounds like it might suit. Each unit is a "character" with the usual stats and skills, mat squares become miles instead of 5', adds new unit powers, and then it leverages existing rules to make a battle on this new scale between units. It even sounds like it mixes unit sizes flexibly so you can have PC in the field along with units representing 100s of individuals. No mention of morale in the review, though.

comment How do you keep PCs from killing each other when 1 or more is evil?
Trying to understand Game of Thrones / A Song of Ice and Fire through the lens of alignment can only cause confusion. No spoilers, but very few characters that start out seemingly "evil" actually turn out to be evil people later in the series. Everyone is shades of grey, including the "good" guys.

AFAIK, Dragon Strike's video doesn't hit the question's criteria.
