I am retiring from the military in a couple of years and want to take my game design to helping people learn new skills.

Military war games that involve people IRL reacting to simulated and non-simulated events to test their skills.

WoW, Dungeons and Dragons (Table top), Vampire the Masquerade (LARP).
