There was a night bomber regiment in World War Two composed entirely of women. These 200 women and girls, flying outdated biplanes from open fields near the front lines, attacked the invading German forces every night for 1,100 consecutive nights. When they ran out of bombs they dropped railroad ties.
To each other they were sisters, with bonds forged in blood and terror. To the Red Army Air Force they were an infuriating feminist sideshow. To the Germans they were simply Nachthexen — Night Witches.
As a member of the 588th Night Bomber Regiment, you’ll answer the call of your Motherland in her darkest hour. Can you do your duty and strike blow after blow against the Fascists? Can you overcome discrimination and outright sabotage and rise above your sexist comrades? Are there limits to patriotism—or endurance?
Expect a mix of air missions and ground challenges, with all three roles (pilot, navigator, mechanic-armorer) contributing to all the challenges, each in their own way.
Night Witches is based on Jason Morningstar’s tabletop rpg of the same name. It’s excellent, and I highly recommend it. https://bullypulpitgames.com/games/night-witches/
