    Background:
    Rival clans Hizbul-Islam and Al-Shabaab clashed around the Lower Jubba region of Southern Somalia over control of resources in the area earlier this year. The escalation of violence prompted the United Nations to enter the region from Kenya to protect the civilian population from being caught in the crossfire and to provide aid to the poverty stricken region. UN forces delivered aid convoys containing food and medical supplies but were still attacked on numerous occasions by both clans. A U.N. spokesperson has stated that the mission in Somalia although not an easy task, is an achievable one.

    Factions:
    Hizbul Islam
    Al-Shabaab
    United Nations
    Mercenaries

    Certain objectives will become available depending on how the conflict plays out and on the decisions of battle commanders.

    Any questions feel free to contact us via

    If you are interested let us know what faction you would prefer to be on, bear in mind you may be transferred to another faction on the day depending on numbers.

    We have people from part I playing similar roles and a few new ones, we are looking for anyone who might have their own idea for a civilian character to contact us.
    There are a few places for bandits who are armed civilians with just pistols and are there to make money like everyone else, by stealing and causing trouble or helping factions out its up to them, this role can also be done unarmed there will be opportunity's within the game to purchase weapons such as knifes and single shot pistols.

    No problem we will keep you guys together, it will depend on numbers on the day as to what side you guys are on.

    any questions just shout

    Thanks

    We don't sell gas but do have BB's, at the moment we have Bio Excels 3000 .2g for €14
    We also have a few chargers on site as well but bear in mind our safezone is a trek away from the gaming area so bring charged batteries and spares if you have them.

    hey would anybody be able to give me a lift from the lucna/ dublin area?:) tough for me to get out there to be honest:S

    weather forecast is looking decent.

    I've also printed off & laminated a few maps to share with any poorly prepped mercs ;)

    whats the craic with faction radio channels. Is it being left up to each faction to pick their own, or will they be designated on the day?

    cheers.

    Having a bit of trouble finding a baseball cap. Thought I had loads but upon actually checking just now...most of them dont fit :P

    Only 2 fit and they are bright orange and say "Fiat" across the front :o

    Will try and pick one up tomorrow, but if someone could bring a spare, I would be ever so grateful!


    (or you could bend the rules and let me wear a cowboy hat :pac:)

    Great (and tiring) day's gaming today! :D

    Good to see command radio's being issued for the commanders. I thought they helped the flow of the game a great deal!

    Just a little bit of feedback:

    Some players on different teams were wearing mixed headgear (as in some guys supposed to be wearing bush hats were wearing baseball caps etc) and also some players were wearing no headgear at all when they should have been. Made it awfully confusing (and a bit annoying) at times.

    Thanks to all involved at the site. You're doing a great job. :)
