The Emerald Tablet: Wargaming Rules for Heroic Battles and Mystical Conquests
"INTRODUCTION:
Welcome to the world of the EMERALD TABLET, a set of rules for fantasy battles using miniatures. All the imaginings of fantasy can now appear on the wargaming table. Dragons can meet Dwarves in bloody combat, while Warlocks can evoke demons to counter the powers of Magi. And Heroes can ride to glory in the midst of furious melees beneath skies alive with Harpies and Pegasi.
Using a comprehenisve Value Point system, players can design their own armies limited only by their imaginations. All the different characteristics a being may have, such as height, strength, armour, training, etc., are described and each is given a quantity of Value Points. This allows players to pit against each other two armies of equal Value Point totals, but made up of different types of beings and creatures, and still have an exciting and evenly matched game.
The mechanics of THE EMERALD TABLET are comprehensive and form a unified structure, not a series of ad hoc exceptions to the rules. Movement and missile fire are considered simultaneous, though each turn is structured into phases. The melee rules are based on the Advantages one side has over another. This system is easy to use and enables the gamer to conduct melees without having to pour over a multitude of charts. The rule system accounts for all the particular features of a fantasy battle. How much more effective in hand-to-hand combat is a 15 foot giant than human sized infantry? How would a unit of airborne eagles and a unit of pterodactyls fight? These and other situations are fully explained.
The magic of THE EMERALD TABLET is based on the actual grimoires (magical texts) that guided medieval European thaumaturges (workers of miracles). Presented are the evocation circles, mystical symbols, demons and angels that have been familiar to magic users for centuries. Set as ritualistic happenings, THE EMERALD TABLET'S magic is as risky as it is exciting. Unlike the relatively tame magic of other games, it gives no guaranteed results.
Interest in fantasy wargaming is steadily increasing. Ores, Goblins, Dwarves, Dragons and many other exciting creatures have been incorporated into the wargamer's world. What has been lacking is a comprehensive set of battle rules for miniatures. THE EMERALD TABLET fills that need."

Fields of Honor: An Historical Simulation of Warfare in the 19th Century
"Fields of Honor is an innovative miniatures game system covering the military conflicts of the 19th century. This 120-page book contains everything you'll need to fight battles, campaigns, and even entire wars. The mechanics are fast, flexible, and easy to learn, realistically covering engagements of all sizes at virtually any scale.
Multiple Scales. From tiny engagements like Rorke's Drift or huge battles like the Alma, no fudging is ever required. Help Buford secure the good ground at Gettysburg, fighting the first day at company level. Find out just how valuable Buford's sacrifice was the next day, when you play through the entire battle at brigade level.
Unique Terrain Marking. Slog through the marshes of Vicksburg or attempt to scale the peaks of Majuba Hill under deadly Boer musketry. Fields of Honor's unique terrain marking system realistically simulates the effects - good and bad - of terrain on the battle.
Command and Control. Advanced rules introduce orders and communications. Plan your attack carefully before battle, because you'll be relying on your sub-commanders to pull it off.
Personalities. Assign any of 18 different personality types to your sub-commanders. From Stalwart men like Chamberlain at Gettysburg to the Brash George Armstrong Custer, the men under your command will seem to come alive as you play.
Career Tracking. Fields of Honor includes a career tracking system that tracks your progress and logs your battles. In tournament play, this system pits players against commanders in the same experience bracket.
Fields of Honor includes complete army lists for over twenty of the 19th century's most important wars, with simple rules for creating lists for other conflicts."

Forward to Richmond: Game of the First Battle of Bull Run (2nd Edition) [BOX SET]
CONTENTS:
32" x 23" Full Color Mounted Mapboard
260 die-cut counters (1 sheet)
1 Rulebook
1 Strategy Book
1 Die

"Forward to Richmond! re-creates the first major battle of the Civil War. Union forces must capture crossings over Bull Run, then advance in force, destroying the Confederate army or cutting it off from its base at Manassas Junction. Confederate rearguards must seek to delay the attacking northerners, whilst reinforcements - including the as yet unknown Jackson - hasten to the front.
Forward to Richmond! includes rules simulating the difficulties of commanding raw troops, morale, firefights, bayonet charges, cavalry, artillery, rallying, and hidden movement. Players can never be certain all their units will move exactly as and when ordered. Morale too is an unknown: a unit may stand and fight it out all day, or run at the first shot. One Brigade may advance, only to find the Brigade that should be supporting it fails to show up. Leaders are highly effective at raising the morale of troops in the firing line, but are apt to lose control of the rest of their Brigade if they themselves plunge directly into battle ...
Forward to Richmond! is one of the most playable Civil War games ever published. Simple to play, the game nevertheless presents players with a wealth of strategic and tactical options, and no two games will ever be exactly alike. Players must decide which points to attack, when, and in what strength. Which positions to yield and where to counter-attack. How best to use their cavalry and artillery, and which Brigades are best suited to which tasks. There is no single "master plan" for winning the game: to win, players must be flexible and always ready to react to their opponent's decisions. This second edition includes a 2-page discussion of some of the strategic options open to each player; others you must discover for yourself..."

"The United States is in economic turmoil contributed to by droughts, bank failures, and the loans the Third World has defaulted on. Lately, there has been an emergence of radical grass-roots political groups. The whole nation seems to be polarized. Overseas, relations between the United States and the Pan-Arab Coalition, an Anti-American alliance of nations, have continued to deteriorate.
The President and Congress have decided that a war against the Pan-Arab Coalition will pull together the divided United States. However, Britain is refusing to support the move, completely isolating the United States. Congress has called a joint session, asking all Congressmen, governors of the fifty states, the President, and the Supreme Court Justices to attend to help make the crucial decisions that will decide the fate of the nation.
At this momentous meeting, five brothers bring together the parts to a small nuclear bomb. They know it has just enough force to eradicate the leaders of the Great Satan and turn the United States into the Shattered Slates."
