As a variant, has anyone considered adding Battlelore's Lore aspect to Memoir? I'm talking an almost straight port here, but using WW2 terminology and flavoring...

ex.:

Lore side of dice becomes Star side of dice.
War council is an HQ
Commander is ummm.... the General?
Cleric is your Medic/General Surgeon
Wizard can be the Engineer Corps
Warrior and rogue can have similar ports..

As for the lore cards themselves (or whatever they're now called), just take a straight port of the card costs but adapting the flavour for a ww2 theme

Just rambling thoughts right now... perhaps try and give it some more work. Given the focus/increased ability of M44's range combat, not sure if this would translate well, but just putting this out as an idea to gather some thoughts...

I've been saying this for the past month. I think that if they made an expansion with these aspects and one british and one italian unit, everyone would buy it...

shoot.. thought i did enough due diligence so as not repeat any existing threads. ahh well. Not sure if DoW would bother though, that's why i thought a homebrew might be more useful..

btw, just read a variant on here where grenades are made effective a at a range of 1-hex only. Perhaps this is a way to help promote a slighty more melee feel, making potential lore-like cards more applicable.

Hi there... Well I made what U just said.... But I did it two weeks ago... I also mix other things to my M44, things like the Leaders on battlefield, morale among the troops etc. And let me tell you it meakes my M44 much better, My brother and girlfriend love it... About the HQ I made this conversion... Comander - Comander, Cleric - Air Force General, Rogue - Spy, Warrior - Sargent Mayor.

I also desing the cards, only text, but it works.... Just one little detail I made them in Spanish that is my local lenguage...

Read the rulebook, plan for all contingencies, and…read the rulebook again.

I put up a thread on the DOW forums suggesting an "Operations" deck (function would be similar to the Lore Deck) for Memoir '44 shortly after BattleLore came out. A Lore-type deck for C&C:Ancients and Battle Cry would be neat, too,
