Supposedly random events that keep recurring in your game?
Once again I turn to our Night Witches campaign.
Throughout the whole of the campaign, our missions were almost always flawless – we hit the target every time, did damage to it every time, and mostly came home in one piece with few injuries or lost aircraft.
On the other hand, our daytime hi-jinx were generally disastrous. Snake eyes were common and failure almost always accompanied our every effort. We weren’t any worse at daytime stuff than we were at nighttime stuff, but all our good rolls came up on the missions, and all our bad rolls came up on the daylight activities. Our unit suffered more harm from us trying to acquire supplies and spare parts than it ever did from the Hitlerites.
