Hello all!

I'll just put this here since my PM box doesn't seem to work yet.

---

I'm one of the leaders of a small community of around 50 refugees from Civilization Fanatics Forums. We're mostly historically-oriented people who like to play forum-based role-playing games.

Long story short, we had some issues with the site staff over at CFC and we're looking for a more relaxed place to play our games, which are mostly alternate histories or other nation-building role playing games inspired by Civilization and other strategy games. Generally, players control nations/political entities and guide them through war and peace, though we occasionally do other settings.

I noticed you have a bunch of gaming forums, but you don't have a subforum specifically for playing games in the forum itself. This website looks like the perfect one to relocate to, and I'm reasonably certain I could bring in at least a few dozen people if you were interested in accommodating us.

Would you consider making a new sub-forum in the Gaming forum for people to play alternate history (and other) forum roleplaying games in?

We'd be hugely grateful, and I can speak on behalf of all my friends as saying we'd really appreciate having a new forum with intelligent history people to call home. We like to play a wide variety of games across historical time periods.

I would include links to our maps that we've made but I don't have enough posts yet!

Thanks! I look forward to participating here.

Smile Hello I'm new here

Hi, my name is Stephanie and I live in Iowa City. Grew up in Southern Calif. I'm here to research info about my dad's WWII service. I'm currently in the process of putting online about 200 letters he wrote my mom between 1943-1945. (Not sure what I will do with the material but will certainly share with the family.)

My father was a bombardier in the 15th AF flying B-25s out of Foggia, Italy and flew 48 missions before returning to the States. He was from Philadelphia and met my mother at a USO dance in Santa Ana, CA--in the Los Angeles area (where her family lived) in Dec. 1942. His name was Lt. Lawrence (Larry) Weiss (1917-1985). He trained in New Mexico--Deming and Carlsbad-- and was stationed in Columbia S.C. before going overseas in Sept. 1943. Would love to hear from anyone who is familiar with his unit, the air war in the European theatre, or just interested in his observations of the war.
