The few games I have run have been very intense role playing experiences though very funny at the same time.
Lance Corporal Jack Jones' Story.
"Permission to speak, sir"
"They don't like it up 'em!"
A veteran soldier, with many years service (and medals) to his name, Jack Jones is loaded with ‘long’ stories of adventure and heroism. He served with General Gordon and Lord Kitchener becoming very fond of the cold steel bayonet; “they don’t like it up ‘em”.
Jones runs the local butchers shop and he converted his butchers van as troop transport though as the Captain says “his experience will stand us in good steak er... stead”.
Loyal to the Captain he will volunteer for every mission. When things go wrong he gets in a flap “Don’t Panic Mr Mainwaring!”
His ambition in life? - to marry Mrs Fox.
