Campaigns: Forum discussions suggested the possibility that the book would not contain a campaign due to space reasons. Two potential candidates had previously been considered -- Tickets for a Prayer Wheel (Campaign) which is already available for free online (at this site), and The Black Seal's in-house Vietnam campaign (called "Summer of Love").

Scenarios: A Nightmare in Green, Sweetheart of Song Tra Bong, Country Fair
