I be interested to see if anyone has any suggestions for the following situation.
The GM is in his late 20's at university and is running a DW campaign. However, he is finding himself outclassed by his latest group of players at their gaming group.
To explain: The four players in his game are all instructors at the (Australian) Army Infantry School which is located in the area. They teach tactics, military history and develop new doctrine. All are between 30 & 50 YO and most have real combat experience. He assures me they are great guys, but they are always way ahead of him in dealing with the tactical problems set for them in the campaign. They have learned the rules thoroughly and pre-plan their missions in depth. As a result, they always seem to be ready for the threats he has created and come up with creative ways of dealing with them. They are a tight team and have created and run their space marine characters the same way.
Personally, I have told him I don't see a problem and that he should enjoy playing with professionals. However, he is keen (almost depserate) to come up with some surprises to put them on the back foot and give them a challenge.
Anybody got any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
