The Twilight War has waged on for the fourth year. The nuclear weapons have flown and devastated the world. Most of the world's navies and ships sit at the bottom of the oceans. Armies are a skeleton of what they once were. Where divisions numbered in the tens of thousands now number in the thousands. Fuel is distilled and created, food is planted and harvested, ammunition is reloaded and radiation is afloat in the air. A trickle of small ships has transported supplies across the oceans during the winter and very few people were able to go home to the United States. Military units operate on previous orders and are awaiting the chance to go home. This is the world you are in, the world the politicians have created.

Your character will be part of a military organization that has desintegrated after a US lead attack was met with a fierce combined Soviet/Polish counter-attack. As the US Division Headquarters was being over-run this transmission was sent on the unsecure general radio broadcast, "Good luck. You're on your own."

The game is currently underway and being run at Roleplay On-Line and is a play by post game that is a bit slower than other games. I have multiple teams so feel free to lurk or join up. Just head on over to and search in Post Holocaust for Into the Twilight. Feel free to drop a line if you have any questions, comments, or complaints.
