Border Troubles 1

Here at the Duchy (and also at another place) we have been rather busy.

In the next day or so I hope to publish the scenario specific rules, map and other materials which Donald Hauser and I hope to use in the first encounter between Alzheim and Vulgaria. The first draft of the map has been created by Donald and looks very fine.

We will be limiting this first game to a little skirmish of between 15-25 figures per side on a four foot square map that has been subdivided by a grid. At the moment we imagine that each will set up a table based on this map and communicate our orders to each other via an internet messaging service.

The rules will be Donald Featherstone's "Close Wars" from his book "The War Game".

Great! Can't wait to see how this shapes up through a report (or two or three) here. Looking forward to it.

Well, I want to see that, yes. But first I'd like to read more accounts of the lead-in to the encounter.

Patience Jeff, patience Stokes!

Well aren't they going to be surprised Greg; when we establish a charter for peaceful co-existence and declare war against the GD of Stollen! LOL!
