‘Terps is a live action role-playing game about combat interpreters – people who volunteer for extremely dangerous duty in the service of a foreign power, motivated by a desire to improve both their war-torn nation and their own lot in life. It is about commitments made and ignored, and brave allies abandoned. It is inspired by the ongoing tragedy of America’s withdrawal from Iraq and Afghanistan.
