World War II Role Playing Game

The World War II RPG by Mikko Kauppinen is designed as a simple game that is deadly to low level characters, but that allows more powerful characters to do very cinematic actions. Characters have three attributes and a number of skills. Action resolution is done by rolling 1d6, subtracting the result from the relevant attribute and adding one.
