For a long time I have looked for a set of naval rules that allow for a wide range of gaming experiences.
The rule set “In Harms Way” gives you the flavor of naval surface action from the 1890s thru 1945.
More important it accurately portrays each ship and its capabilities allowing the player to simulate any type of action, from ship on ship up to major fleet engagements like Tsushima, Jutland or Leyte Gulf.
Players can do conventional tactical battles where you close on the enemy and open fire, up to sweeping strategic level games, covering wide areas of ocean, hunting the enemy and maneuvering fleets.
The rules allow for a destroyer torpedo attack or operating a carrier task force launching an air strike.
The game even allows you to operate an on going campaign managing the naval resources of such great powers as Great Britain, Japan or The United States.
“In Harms Way” allows you to create “what if” scenarios such as the US fleet being aware of the impending Japanese strike at Pearl Harbor to alternate history such as a world with no Washington naval treaty.
If you are looking for a wide range of naval gaming from 1890 to 1945 “In Harms Way” is the rule set for you.
20 years in development, technical research and hundreds of games play testing the rules have honed “In Harms Way” into a fun, flexible system to challenge and entertain you for years to come.
We will also offer you all the Addendums and supplemental materials you will need to game any action from the Spanish American war to the death run of the mighty Yamato. “In Harms Way”, coming to you soon.
How can you help make “In Harms Way” a reality?
The rules are written, the charts completed, even the 1:6000 Figurehead ships
and 1:1250 Cap Aero planes are ready to go.
Now we need to publish and you can be a part of it. Our goal is $8,000 dollars to get a complete rule set and the addendum's to the publisher and into your hands. If we do better then the $8,000 we can also complete a Guadalcanal Campaign set with all the Maps and ships you need to fight all seven major naval actions of the pivotal WWII pacific fight.
If we reach $10,000 we will publish the Guadalcanal Campaign box set with all the ships, maps and rules you need to fight the seven major surface actions of the Guadalcanal naval campaign.
