We are looking for a few more sailors to participate in an ongoing PBeM campaign involving Allied and Axis WWII naval forces that are conducting a series of skirmishes for control of an obscure group of islands in the far northern latitudes. These islands are covered by air power during the daytime, so all scenarioes/skirmishes are at night where targets at point blank range tend to disappear quickly. Scenario VII (out of 9 scenarioes) is now starting. Game layout is that the senior officer on each side has established what ships will be used, the mission, and the plots of the ships to their initial contact points after which each player commands individual groups of ships (usually on a first-come-first-served basis) for the rest of the scenario. Gunfire and moves are plotted on WORD plots or otherwise described in e-mails, after which gunfire is resolved by the gods using Seapower III. The entire range of commands are available: cruisers, destroyers, ASW escorts, MTBs, Uboats, etc. - the sooner that you join, the sooner you get your choice of commands.
