We jokingly call this the no monster edition, though the old World At War series had them: no, sorry, none in World At War 85. For myself, I feel that “military-horror” is an absolutely brilliant choice for a role-playing game genre (I would so play in that game and so would some of my friends!). However, this is not that game. The background world has been rewritten to correspond more closely to the real-world situation in 1985, sans the Supernatural. But even in that I have taken liberties, since any wargame is, in the end, an experiment in alternate history. But it is not a cross-genre endeavor: World At War 85 is all pure tanks and troops, no vamps or were-s’ included.
