Update — Maps for Game-Play

Here are two maps that I mocked up for running “Fox Hunt.” One’s based on a 1944 Michelin map and the other is taken from Google Earth, so they’re for personal use only!

Base Will 3

Background Burly and thick-handed with dark hair and deep-set dark eyes, you were a high school football star but you didn’t have the money for college or the grades or connections for a scholarship. You went into the merchant marine, but hated it so much that after a year you vowed never to go to sea again. You even volunteered for the Army in 1942 to avoid getting drafted into the Navy. You can’t stand to stay in one job or one place long; sooner or later you get lazy and start drinking and getting in fights. You plan to put in your time, avoid losing life or limb, and move on when your enlistment is up. That plan has gotten harder. Your power appeared in North Africa at the end of 1942, when you had to hurdle a taller-than-expected pile of rocks in a firefight. By that time you were already sick of the Army and wanted out, and when you took the leap you just kept going up. When you were half a mile in the air you had to think about it a while before you decided to come down. You didn’t want to risk a court-martial for desertion. After you were transferred to Achnacarry for TOG training, a British instructor nicknamed you after the “Boston” attack-bomber plane. The fact that you were born and raised in Dorchester was a happy coincidence.
