Just something I'm having fun with, mashing ideas and letting it roll.
As usual the paper keeping is the big monster BUT i'm improving as i'm getting older, so keeping paper, blog and video so no detail falls off the safety net and do not dump too much data at the same time to anyone that wants to follow it.

All the blog entries will be here

I haven't had time to dive into this to deep but I'm intrigued and looking forward to finding some time to read through your posts!

After reading through your posts and watching some of the videos I somehow ended up with "The Solo Wargaming Guide" book being shipped to me .....  ::)

I've heard good things about Henry Hyde's Wars of the Faltenian Succession available in PDF from someplace called PayHip. (This is the link from the Battlegames site to PayHip.)

There is very likely something in the History of Wargaming Project's publications, but I'm not going to go look because I don't need to order a pile of books at the moment. I think  Wargaming Campaigns by CS Grant would be useful, but, uh, I haven't read it yet. Possibly some of his other books, too, since his name seems to be associated with the idea.

It is coming. This is a marathon and shares prime time with all other games.

Bonus: Been devising mechanisms to rule the Senate so they will be an active faction in the future. Think it will be fun and add to the game.
