Space Station Romeo places the gamer in the role of the Protoss, aliens who are trying to establish a presence in the ruins of a space station originally built by humans. Why are the humans gone, and their facility in a state of destruction? Answer: The Zerg. Expect some of this disgusting race to remain on the station, as unpleasant as ever.
Islands In the Night takes place in a similar setting, only larger, and with smaller bits of solid ground. This time the human player is the human, with some potent military power already at his disposal. He will need it.
The enemy is, once again, the Zerg. Maybe this time they have met their match. Or maybe not. The answer depends on how you play.
Both scenarios require the Broodwar expansion set.

In 1798, Lord Nelson smashed the French fleet at anchor
What if the navies had met at sea and underway? That is the question that my scenario, Alternate Nile, addresses.
The orders of battle are those of the historical battle, minus the French frigates, which are assumed to be detached for scouting and liaison duties. I gave it a time limit of two and a half hours, and neither side must totally wreck its opponent in order to win.

Steel Panthers II,

March 1980, Jimmy Carter launched a large-scale invasion
In the scenario, Marine tanks and riflemen advance northward, to take up blocking positions against Iranian counterattacks. However, they meet units of the regular Iranian army on their way, and the fighting begins.
The scenario went through some evolution. Earlier drafts
were highly imbalanced in
All of this gave the Marines a significantly better chance. In fact, in two tests they were able to win decisive victories.
