The development of Bear Yourselves Valiantly:  Look, Sarge, No Charts:  Fantasy, Ancient, and Mediaeval is nearly done, and I have begun the first draft of the rule book.  From previous posts you will recall that I have been tinkering with a new concept for WWII (or modern) skirmish fighting.  At the same time, I’ve been talking about a near future and science fiction version of Look, Sarge, No Charts.
