Price of Freedom: Roleplaying in Occupied America [BOX SET] Game – 1986
"In The Price of Freedom, you play an American who chooses to resist the Communist occupiers. You must find the weapons and leadership to resist effectively. The invaders have absolute nuclear supremacy; regular military opposition is impossible. The only way they can be defeated is to make the occupation of America so costly that they must withdraw. But remember; no occupied nation has ever liberated itself without outside help. And we have no one to help us. The fate of America is in your hands. Features: ? A realistic and flexible modern-weapons combat system, with rules for every aspect of man-to-man warfare from guns and grenades to vehicles, heavy weapons and night operations. ? A combat system played with full-color maps and counters, as a miniatures system, and also as a simple combat game. ? A character system which promotes roleplay, with rules for personality and physical tags, interests, and passions. ? "Waging Guerrilla War" - how to fight the Occupation, and an analysis of the methods and objectives of the American Resistance. ? Running a campaign - developing a setting, character backgrounds, recurrent non-player characters, etc. ? Adventure design - the principles of plotting, characterization, and staging. ? A complete adventure (The PATH of Freedom) and many short ones (Radio Free America, The Last Congressman, etc.). ? Tables of organization and equipment for the "American Strategic Direction" - the Soviet occupation forces. ? Extensive background material: how America fell, the organization of Soviet society, and how the Soviets plan to remold America." Box contents: Gamemaster Book; Player Book; 2 maps; 4 4-page Freedom Files; counters.
