Champaigns and Personal Development

Recommended Posts

Okay… here we go.  When you are a Field Ops for a National Cellular Carrier sometimes you have down time waiting for software to load up and equipment to reboot.  And with that down time comes time to think.  A very dangerous proposition if you ask me but here I sit and I am thinking.  In so many games that I've enjoyed in the past the most important things for me were:

1) Being able to make the game personalized.  With X-Wing you can do this with the point system.  This is high on my list.

2) Being able to put the personal spin on it.  Not so much a role playing aspect but being involved.  YOU pilot one of the ships on the board and through several missions you improve your personal aspect/ your pilot. 

  Being as a rookie, you tag one rookie pilot as you and go on the mission.  After x number of missions your become a certain squadron member and so you advance up to a new pilot skill rating.  Then after x number of missions you become a named pilot and then up to perhaps a leader for either the Rebellion or the Empire.

  I don't know if any of that makes sense but it is something I loved doing in past games like Advanced Squad Leader and Squad Leader.  Never made it to the rank of major but a good Staff Sargent seemed to be well worth the points.

  Oh yeah, and as you step your way up it costs more to use yourself.  Naturally.

Just thoughts.  I was wondering if any of you have ever thought about something like this or have ever played like this before in other games?


More goofy ideas on the way.
