HULL Bio - E M Arnesson

I'm 23 years old and live in Torsby Sweden. Currently I work as a computer instructor for unemployed. I've studied "Peace and Conflict" at Uppsala University (not very sucessfully though). I served as a mortar squadleader (conscript) in the Swedish Army for a year.

My interest in wargaming and military, started at the age of 15 when I got Air Superiority (GDW) from a friend. A few years later I bought Harpoon. I also play (regularily) the FLEET-series (VG), 3:rd World War -series (GDW) and Air Power (GDW/Clash of arms). Occasionally I play World in flames and other such classics, but my main focus has always been modern ships and aircraft. I never liked the computer versions of Harpoon, probably because beating the computer doesn't give me the satisfaction of mentally destroying my friends. :)

When I design Harpoon scenarios I try to give the players as little information, and as many options as possible. (And I'm happy when I can give them difficult Rules Of Engagement...). I think the problem with the available Harpoon scenarios, is the fact that all the fun is over when they start, you only have to push the button... I think the funny part is to decide what you have to do, where to do it, when to do it, and to whom....

Anyway I always liked the Russian/Soviet side best ..(No I don't believe in the Soviet form of Communism), but they always seemed to be disadvantaged. And at least they didn't make themself look like some "Angel-like-Mother Theresa-Worldpolice".

Well I'm interested in scenarios, orders of battle, performances, policies, books, games , politics and speculation.

Thanks for your time. Please feel free to mail me...
