Of course I've heard of Fortress America and know/have seen the Game Masters edition, but never played.
In the original, what was the premise? What was the setting? Current (80s) times? Near future? Far into the future? Were the weapons/tactics equivalent to what was available in the real world at the time, or were they more sci-fi super weapons and things like that?
I seem to understand that the FFG reprint will be more or less the same game with any changes to the rules being supplements rather than rules revisions. Is this correct? Is the premise of the game the same, or a slight setting change? The cover illustration seems to lean a little towards the sci-fi realm; is this indicative of what the game has always been like?
