Anytime I'm on Steam, I seem to see Cyrano on TTS and I keep thinking "he's moving my troops!" and start checking my email. Alas, it's been quiet.

And I'm not 100% DONE!

And I get to start SitReps and fatigue calculations in ONE HOUR.

HOORAY!

I love the KS...

While we wait, another episode of Napoleon's marshals is out (and ever so conveniently mentions me)...

The game's still going, right?
The entire French team didn't up and quit all at once, right?
So the fact that I haven't received any dispatches is probably because they're all just forgotten the Emperor's directive to provide regular updates, not because they're being deliberately disobedient , right?

FATIGUE CALCULATION BEGIN NOW!

As for missives, even I have been jarred by the MUCH, MUCH larger distances in this campaign than in some of the others.  These AdCs are going through heck.

And fatigue calculation is done.

That means I can run the clock any time I want...and we'll find out what the weather is for today.

And remember, DAWN is only three hours away!

Since when did wisdom come into play in any of this?

No, that's the second rule.
The first rule is that unlike in the real world an Emperor isn't allowed to relieve a subordinate for incompetence or have them stood up against the wall and shot for treason.
Kriegspiel is, after all, just a game... or so I've been led to believe.

As a subordinate to the Emperor in this game, add me to the list of who sez.
