What's it for?

Serge is for hosting multi-force, multi-player wargames, with a focus on Command and Control (C2).

How does it do it?

A Game Designer creates a new wargame, then populates it with forces and roles (players) within those forces. Channels (aka chat-rooms) are also created for the wargame, with forces and roles assigned to those channels. In some channels, the Game Designer indicates that some roles use form-based messages that are able to contain complex data.

A Game Controller then initiates the wargame, and players are able to join. Within the wargame the Game Controller uses turn controls to advance the wargame, with the game-play happening through the transmission of messages in channels.

How to I get it?

The Serge application is hosted from this GitHub repository: https://github.com/serge-web/serge-web

Deployment and running still requires some command-line hackery, so we're working on and deployment mechanism.
