Well, I truly hoped it would not come to this, but it seems likely we'll have to track the game's progress here.

S!

Just so.

Also, asked Brant to correct spelling up top.

Moves like this are always soooo complicated.

Is this the start of the end of the beginning of the death of Grogheads?

Its possible, although the situation is far from clear at present.

Indeed, Jason. A more amicable outcome would have been preferred, but at least we now have some continuity.

Seems that the site is back up and running... what did I miss out on that would lead to there being any thought of there being a beginning to an end here?
Title: Re: "The Death Ride of Jean Lannes" -- Game Time Is...
Post by: Cyrano on November 16, 2018, 09:46:59 PM
Not that at all, really.

Just that Doug and I had always intended to move the games once these ended, but we honestly didn't know when the GH site would be back up.  I'm working fatigue as I type this...

Glad you made it.

True, but for me at least the site seems to have lost some of the dynamism that it used to have...I know people need to find their feet and all, but I don't know...there just seems to be little going on and all seems a bit flat!
Title: Re: "The Death Ride of Jean Lannes" -- Game Time Is...
Post by: JasonPratt on November 17, 2018, 09:11:30 AM
The two sites share a lot of the same members, former or current, and by sheer mathematics the time spent typing or reading on one site means less time on the other site. So splitting attention, or migrating all attention here, causes GH to naturally have less content from that member by proportion.

I don't want to impose, so I'll mostly stick with GH (probably, assuming their host migration teething works out), aside from special projects like this.

I can say without fear of correction that that was the craziest run of fatigue calculation I have ever done.

MANY dispatches out.

And, remember, dawn is only four scant hours away.

Really diving down into Prof. Gill's trilogy and I'll say these things:

1.  I once felt badly about the march rates.  They are merciful.   He records one corps (Austrian) marching for 15 hours and making 13 km.
2.  I once felt badly about the message delay.  They are nothing short of generous.  Charles occasionally got messages over one day late.

The grievous fatigue calculation commences...NOW...

The game's a little uncharacteristic of my other experience with VV, if only because it adopts a point-to-point system for managing the campaign.  In this it resembles a less lovely version of Napoleon: 1806 from Shakos.  Let it be noted that I'm counting on those lads to make their way through ALL the campaigns.    Rules are straight-forward and light.  Nothing much to compare it to, but I liked it.  Shouldn't cost much to obtain either.

You are a chatty lot of late and that's excellent.

To stress something Doug mentioned over in his longer posting (well worth a read), there's no real substitute for communication in this game!  Yes, it slows turns down a bit, but it makes everybody's experience that little bit better.

Besides, is there anything so delightful -- or horrifying -- as coming home from work, or perhaps waking up, to find a KS missive you didn't expect waiting for you?

Last call, lads for morning orders!!

Just saw a rather well done video about Kriegsspiel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-seIA9tukDs&feature=youtu.be (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-seIA9tukDs&feature=youtu.be)
  Very well done history of the game in about 15 minutes.

Best part from my angle are the photographs and clarifications of Hellwig's game which I knew of, but had not seen in this much detail.

Well, and still yet more photographs of my favorite piece of furniture on the PLANET.

Holding our breath a bit as one of our players (Treb) weathers the hurricane.

I meant to consider more closely the information you sent yesterday, Cyrano, but I got home a lot later than I expected, and then I was hopping around dealing with various things.

I'm planning to get into it this afternoon, but if you can pause the game progression a little, I'd appreciate it.

If that isn't possible (or perhaps feasible), my original orders from a few days ago will suffice. They're PROBABLY still good anyway; I'm just checking over the extra information to be sure.

Always gratified by the interest these generate.  Next game will likely be 1807.  We'll have open sign-ups right here!

Is there a way to get an email notification from the forum when that happens?

Who wants it to be night?

Who?

Not me, of course, because that means fatigue calculation, but some soldiers...well...

Well, that took some noodlin'!

OK, kidsL

2230, 21st April

It's dark!

Super important:  I stop marches at dark.  If you want to keep marching -- fatigue penalty be damned -- you must let me know.  Night turns come very quickly.

"So I lied, so I can't tell time, maybe some Bavarian bastard has made an appointment to bayonet you in the kidneys..." -- Borrowed loosely from "Heartbreak Ridge"

It's the next day, gentlemen.  The next day!

Fatigue calculations are DONE.

Requests for SitReps and orders are in order NOW!!!

Clock will run again on Sunday.

The sound you hear is that of commanders being woken from their bunks, reading their dispatches, and, well, reacting...

The clock will advance tomorrow.

Dawn at 0430.
