"It wasn't hell. It was the courtyard of hell. It was a maelstrom of noise and hot, splitting steel... the rattling of machine guns never stops... wounded men refuse to leave, and the men don't want to be relieved after seven days and seven nights... the battlefield is still an appalling thing to see, in its mud, ruin, dead, and its blight and desolation." --Matthew Halton, war correspondent Canadian Broadcasting Corporation The Courtyard of Hell is an adventure campaign for "Godlike: Superhero Roleplaying in a World on Fire," the critically acclaimed game of deadly action and superheroic courage in World War 2. It's late December, 1943, just after the bloody crossing of the Moro River. The players' superpowered Talents accompany the soldiers of the 2nd Brigade, the Loyal Edmonton Regiment, the Seaforth Highlanders of Canada, and Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry, as they attempt to wrest the town of Ortona from a regiment of elite German paratroopers. It's a battle so ferocious that Churchill will call it "Little Stalingrad." It's a battle the survivors will never forget. "The Courtyard of Hell" includes: * Guidelines for character creation and seven pregenerated characters, ready to play. * Tips for presenting large-scale combat scenes. * New Canadian and German weapons and vehicles. * "One Roll Cityfight" rules for instant encounters. * Enough adventures for months of thrilling gaming.
