Oh, and I rolled for the weather.

Yes I did.

Oh, dear...

The weather is: SUFFOCATING

Note the effect on marches and fatigue, please!

Dawn in one hour.

Am I the only one of us slightly unnerved at the fact that it's been ten days since we were an hour before dawn and we've not moved forward? Maybe Jim's just swamped, but he's so on top of his KS games that I have to wonder just how much stuff is going on (and how much of it is going to be bad for me) right now!

I have a feeling like a lot of things are happening on the map right now.

I always allow a bit more time for players when dawn orders are due.

Then I'm cruel.

So, very well then:

The clock runs tonight!

Last call for orders!

Jim

New commander in the saddle and orders out.

And, remember, it's a hot one!

For those of us who don't have a copy of the game, what's the actual in-game effect of hot/suffocating weather?

Well, after digging through all the places I thought I left my notes and finding rules for All Bridges Burning, Liberty or Death, Breakout Normandy, a recipe I'll likely never make, old insurance papers, and finally the rules for SpaceCorp, I thought... I wonder if I actually put them away where they belong and, to much surprise, that's where I found them.

Or at least I thought I did. Turns out, I put a blank copy of the map in my rules binder under K, but the rest of the materials are for the prior KS (still impressed at how well I stuck to my initial plan over the course of 36 months, but I digress).

So, I looked through my email and finally found it. Suffocating has the following effects:

French move: 2 inf, 3 cav, 10 Liaison Off.
Russian move: 2 inf, 3 cav, 6 cos, 10 Liaison Off.
Supply: Half
Fatigue: x 1.5
Recovery: half

And since the weather chart shows that we either get suffocating, clear, or rain, here's what to expect with clear and rain:

Clear:

French move: 4 inf, 5 cav, 10 Liaison Off.
Russian move: 2 inf, 3 cav, 6 cos, 10 Liaison Off.
Supply: Normal
Fatigue: Normal
Recovery: Normal

Rain:

French move: 3 inf, 4 cav, 10 Liaison Off.
Russian move: 2 inf, 3 cav, 6 cos, 10 Liaison Off.
Supply: Half
Fatigue: x 1.5
Recovery: half
