Looking for players for a modern-day combat game. This is a single scenario, not a long-term role-playing game, but it will be detailed enough to last for quite some time. The scenario involves a police raid on a terrorist hideout.

Each player will create a character for one of the two teams: Law Enforcement or Terrorists. The players will be allowed to customize the attributes, skills, and equipment for their character from a selection of packages listed on the character creation page.

The Phoenix Command rules will be used to govern gameplay, but it is not necessary for players to know or own the rules in order to play. Players will only need to describe their character's actions, the moderator will take care of the game mechanics. PCCS is a fairly close simulation of "real life", so if you have your character perform actions which would be logical in reality, they will probably have good results in the game.

Please check the website for a full description. Slots are still available for both teams. The game will begin in January.
