Grunt - Roleplaying in the Vietnam War

Watermarked PDF
$6.99

Terror. Sheer blind terror sublimated and spat back out of the barrel of an M16. The fear and isolation. The desperation to get out alive - just to get out and get home. A green hell populated by a people who despise you and want to kill you. Or maim you. Or send you mad. This is the Vietnam War. This is GRUNT.

GRUNT attempts to be historically realistic, claustrophobic and packed with a great deal of nervous tension. There are no Rambos or John Waynes here, no daring commando raids and white-toothed grins. You're approaching the heart of darkness, a world of fear and anxiety, booby traps and ambushes, where your body rots in the rain and you're dead beat all day, every day. "You're in the Republic of Vietnam," said an infantry officer at Bien Hoa to his new recruits. "This is the programme for the day: You're going to get killed in Vietnam."

There it is.

GRUNT uses six-sided dice. Players take on the role of members of an infantry squad, part of the famous 1st Cavalry Division, their missions are frought with danger: snipers, booby traps, jungle ambushes, rocket-propelled grenades, friendly-fire ... and stress. Always stress, building up to unbearable levels.

Includes:
• Combat rules that simulate the fact that in most firefights you cannot see the enemy!
• Helpful advice on running the military campaign
• Background on South Vietnam
• Quick but flavourful rules keeping the action speeding along
• Stress - Terror rules and ways to stay human
• Advice on creating infantry combat missions, including downtime and personal stories
• Twelve scenario seeds based on the titles of tracks by The Doors

An old military adage sums up GRUNT perfectly;
"Anything you do can get you shot. Including doing nothing."

I purchased this game a couple of months ago, and have been able to run two one-shot scenarios and a PBP campaign since that time. The rules are excellent in that it is very simplistic. Combat is broken down into Direct Fire and Area Fire. Direct Fire [...]

This game is one of the best historic rules books I have ever read. By far the best post WWI, pre-terrorism war game I've read. I know that's kind of a narrow area, but it still counts for something. This game has a nice and easy system that players, [...]

I bought this rpg last week and while I have not played it yet, I am already impressed. The rules are simple, but inspired. The tension mechanics and area fire rules mean the game can be played in a way that means the stress of jungle combat is central [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
