Not even a morally justifiable war against a certified oppressor?

That isn't an adventure, it's necessity.
To be angry is to punish yourself for the errors of others.

No, I don't think so. Adventure is something positive, done by choice. War and any other necessity is never by choice and even if it is something you like typically, the fact it was forced on you, rather than chosen by you will negate all of the fun factors.

What about, say, the foreign element in the Spanish Civil War?

I have no clue about that part of history, so don't know what you refer to, sorry.
If you are speaking about mercenaries, than that is by choice and therefore is an adventure.

They weren't mercenaries, they were idealistic volunteers. The Nationalists were armed by Hitler. The other side couldn't have afforded mercenaries. They had essentially no answers to simple things like tanks.

It was definitely a justified war against a certified oppressor, yet it wasn't necessity, not for the foreigners.


Angelfish, what about Guy Fawkes? He was an anarchist who made a methodical but kind of stupid and yet almost successful plot to destroy Parliament for some bad reasons, and failed. It was neither war nor an adventure.
