London. Winter. 1963. It is a year since the Cold War went hot. And this was not just a nuclear war.
Far more sinister, darker weapons were deployed from the shadows.
Survival and re-building are all that matter now. But human nature and tragic circumstances mean that everyone has their own ambitions.
...a Government desperate to hold on to what remains of the country.
...military forces who wish to expand their power and influence.
...frightened and brutalised refugees who simply want a place to call home.
Into this maelstrom steps the Special Situations Group, a motley band of men and women tasked with the jobs too dirty or dangerous for anyone else.
This is Hot War: A game of friends, enemies, secrets and consequences in the aftermath.
