The Rookie’s Guide to Block Wars, softback supplement for Judge Dredd (Mongoose d20)

“Block fighting is a common feature of life in Mega-City One and most citizens can expect to be caught up within one at some point during their lives. Boredom, overcrowding and mass unemployment all combine to set tensions on a razor edge and the slightest incident can spark off a block war within minutes. Once two blocks begin waging war upon one another, the judges must act quickly to contain the violence before it spreads. Battles involving several blocks can quickly spiral out of control as the Citi-Def in neighbouring city blocks watch the escalating combat and argue which side they should join.

Left unchecked, a single minor incident can spark off a war that envelopes a dozen blocks and claims the lives of hundreds of thousands of citizens in less than an hour. Whenever such incidents occur, it is the sworn duty of every judge to put down the unrest as quickly, efficiently and brutally as possible. Any reluctance can only cause the deaths of more citizens.
