Beyond the Barbed Wire

At 4:45AM on the morning of Friday, September the 1st, 1939 – the German army ignited the Second World War as 52 divisions invaded Poland. Like dominoes the nations of Europe mobilized in the face of Nazi aggression, preparing for the coming storm that would blanket the world until the surrender of the Empire of Japan on September 2, 1945.

Role-playing in the devastation of World War II

Beyond the Barbed Wire aims to provide a companion supplement for players who wish to set a role-playing campaign in the war-torn environment of the Second World War. Following in the footsteps of countless heroes who battled across the deserts of North Africa, the island jungles of the Pacific, the hedgerows of France, and the vast snowfields of Russia.

This gaming supplement provides Players and Game Masters with the materials to create characters such as elite paratroopers, secretive SOE Agents, and the reliable infantry soldier. We also provide a detailed equipment list to outfit characters with the paraphernalia appropriate to their national military resources.

Rules System Based on the D20SRD

Beyond the Barbed Wire has been designed with the seasoned role-playing gamer in mind. The rules system is based on the d20SRD released by Wizards of the Coast (the same RPG system that Pathfinder Role-playing Game branched off from). But we are modifiying the old Imperial measurement system of feet and inches to a modern metric system of millimetres, centimetres, and meters. But essentially the d20 rules will be the same.
