"Unfortunately" from the perspective of having to move an in progress game, and unfortunate that an existing gaming forum is having serious problems, not unfortunately because ACD isn't a wonderful, welcoming place full of cuddly grognards and fluffy puppies.

As a reminder to everyone, current game time is 2230 17 April 1809

It is full dark. If you have any additional orders prior to 2330, please send them ASAP. I will be advancing the clock today!

We're past midnight and into a new day. It looks like everyone is here now and I want to get caught up with Jim's game, so next turn will happen Wednesday night.

Dawn is just three hours away - if you haven't yet sent me orders for the 18th, please do so. If you need a SITREP, please let me know and I'll get you a pretty picture and description of your situation.

Finally, an observation...there is a chance, when forces are in close proximity, for messengers to be intercepted. When there are a lot of messengers, there are a lot of chances...

As of this morning my expensive and relatively new gaming rig appears to have a blown power supply. I'm working on getting it fixed, but this may delay today's planned turn.

Reminder, if you haven't sent me orders for the 18th, please do.

Looking like it's motherboard and/or cpu. Replaced the PSU, replace CMOS battery...still no sign of power to the machine. Outlet is working, new power cord, it's just DEAD.

So, found one of these, refurb and on clearance at Frys. https://www.corsair.com/us/en/one

I really didn't want to buy a new machine at this point, but I have to admit that this one is pretty badass. I'd advise people to stay away from ABS brand gaming computers, given my "old" machine was not even three years old when it died on Saturday. Let's hope this one survives longer!

Dawn in ONE HOUR. There are a few of you who I don't believe have sent me orders for the day as of yet. Please do so ASAP.

Also note - if you've been sent orders from a superior, just because I've read what you've been sent please don't assume that I am acting as if you are implementing those orders. If your superior sent your orders saying "March to location A" I'm not just marching your corps off to location A. Please issue orders to your corps providing a marching order, rules of engagement, etc. and send those to me. I have a feeling some commanders may have the impression that they are implementing their superior's orders when they are in fact sitting still...

DAWN. Armies are marching on the stricken field. Or about to be stricken field. Or something.

That turn took a good long while for me to run. Lots going on, and I'm continuing to tweak my TTS setup to make doing this easier.

There are a couple of players that I'm still short orders for. Your corps are sitting idle while I wait to hear from you. That may not lead to an optimum outcome for you...

I for one would LOVE to play with "The Eagles Fight" system.

Jim is working on setting up some TTS games using Blucher from Sam Mustafa, which is more complicated than The Eagle Fights, but can be played with unit cards as well. Watch for an announcement, but I would think we'll be playing a game on a Saturday evening soon. We stream those to Youtube. No reason we can't do the same thing with The Eagle Fights...

Today will be a busy, busy day.

Apologies for the longer then normal delay between turns. I've been fighting off a stomach flu, and we had some players who had met up and were discussing plans. If you are one of those players, I need orders from you based on your discussion...

Title: Re: "Spring in Munich" Game time is...
Post by: panzerde on January 21, 2019, 10:15:27 PM
I'm still waiting on orders for the next turn from some players. Next turn tomorrow, so if you haven't updated me as to what your corps is doing, I'll assume your earlier orders are still in effect.

Please get me new orders if you expect something different to happen, particularly if you were just part of a conference of commanders that decided a strategy. I will still need your orders to your divisions as to how your corps intends to carry out what was decided.

Hey all - we had some late orders, some of which I didn't get forwarded on until this evening. We'll be advancing the clock tomorrow evening. If you have any orders for the 1230 18 April turn, please get them to me ASAP if you haven't already.

If all goes well and I don't freeze here, we'll shoot for another turn Friday. I'd like to get things galloping along here a bit faster.

Title: Re: "Spring in Munich" Game time is...
Post by: panzerde on February 03, 2019, 07:58:52 PM
We have some players that are pretty familiar with 19th Century operations, and some others that are pretty new to them. While there are some truly excellent books on the various Napoleonic campaigns, not the least of which is John Gill's trilogy on the very campaign we're playing, it may be that some of you might find the American Civil War more accessible in terms of understanding how these campaigns were conducted.

If so, I recommend trying out Maryland Campaign of September 1862: Volume 1, South Mountain by Ezra Carman and Thomas Clemens. Carman was a participant in the campaign and war who later spent much of his life compiling the definitive history of the campaign. Carman's manuscript was cleaned up and annotated recently by Clemens. The book both describes the activities of both armies in a way that will feel familiar to players of this game, and includes numerous written dispatches and orders between the various commanders. Reading this would likely be very helpful in understand what's going on in the game.

https://www.amazon.com/Maryland-Campaign-September-1862-Mountain-ebook/dp/B0042VJ1LM/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1549241382&sr=8-2&keywords=the+maryland+campaign (https://www.amazon.com/Maryland-Campaign-September-1862-Mountain-ebook/dp/B0042VJ1LM/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1549241382&sr=8-2&keywords=the+maryland+campaign)

Next turn tomorrow night. Enjoy your SportsBall this evening!

Speaking of reading, our campaign, and John Gill - all three volumes of his trilogy, Thunder on the Danube are going for the ridiculous price of between $1.30 and $1.99 on Kindle right now. Given that the hardback of just the first volume is priced at $136, this is clearly a steal. If you haven't read these and you at all interested in the subject, I mean even a little, grab these now for a total of less than $5.

Anyone have or seen the Vae Victis no 144 game called The Eagles of the Danube: The Campaign of April 1809. I saw a report about someone playing it and it was the first I have heard about this magazine game. Anyone had any experience with it? I am tempted to buy a copy and am just wondering if it is any good... Thoughts?

I haven't played that specific game, but I do have a number of Vae Victis games. My experience with them has been overwhelmingly positive in terms of the game and the graphics. The materials tend to be a bit light weight. These are magazine games, or derived from magazine games, so that isn't surprising. The price reflects this. I would say go for it!

The table is great. I absolutely love playing on it. It's very roomy and solid. I'm looking forward to adding some of the accessories, but the basic table itself is worth every penny.

I did get the version that that won't let you play Agricola. In fact, if you put any Euro game on it, it throws it to the floor.

...0230 19 April 1809

That's correct, we've gone three hours. No action was expected and so I've run a longer turn. I plan to start doing this more often, and only switching to one hour turns when events warrant it. Which may be frequently once dawn arrives. Kreigsspiel is supposed to be event driven, so we're going to do that.

Dawn is two hours away. Please prepare your orders for April 19th and get them to me post-haste. I would prefer that your orders are for the entire day.

Here are a few tips on order writing, quoted from Tweleve Scenarios for Kreigsspiel by Bill Leeson, published by Too Fat Lardies:

Operation Orders
Operation Orders are orders from the commanding officer which deal with strategic and
tactical operations such as marches, protection, reconnaissance and battle.

Sequence of Orders
The orders should be set out in a logical sequence, the precise order of which may vary
with circumstances, but which, in general are in paragraph order as follows:


If the cavalry is not attached to the advanced guard or main body, but rather is constituted
as an independent cavalry force it would appear as no.1 in the distribution list in the
margin, and ‘Orders for Cavalry’ would appear in paragraph 3 of the orders, with orders for
the advanced guard becoming 4. etc.

Notes on Writing Orders

Before Writing

Sometimes a briefing assumes that you are writing your orders the night before they are to
be put into operation, and have, therefore, plenty of time to think about them. Sometimes
the briefing puts you in the middle of a situation which calls for a fairly rapid response. In
the latter cause you may have to issue some orders almost instantaneously and then take
some time to work out what is to follow.

The Actual Written Orders
a) Each set of orders should be logically arranged. Deviate from the model when
there is need to. Break up orders into numbered paragraphs and put everything
into one paragraph relating to one subject, giving precedence to the most
important matter.

b) Each order should be as short as possible. Shorter sentences are easier to
understand. Experience shows that wordy orders are usually abbreviated by
those for whom they are intended, which may well result in alteration in their
sense. Reasons for a given disposition have no place in the orders since if they
are well put together they will justify themselves.

c) Each order should be clear and intelligible. ‘It is as well to consider the
question: What knowledge can the recipient have of the general situation? Will
he understand my point of view from the wording of the order? Terms which
are easily misunderstood since their significance depends on the point of view –
such as “right, left, in front of’ etc should be avoided. Replace them with
points of the compass, but avoid intermediate points such as S.S.W. Roads
should be indicated by two points – “The road from Verny to Metz”. If the
intention is to march towards Metz. “The southern outlet of Verny”, if there is
only one, but “The outlet towards X” if there are more.’

d) Do not use uncertain terms. An ambiguous order is loosely carried out. Avoid
“as far as possible”, “as well as you can”, for the commander must accept
responsibility and shift none of it onto the shoulders of the subordinate. It will
be reprehensible in the drawing up of an order to choose an ill-defined or
ambiguous expression under which to hide ones own indecision.

e) The order should not trespass on the province of the subordinate. Your order
should not contain details which the subordinate will be better placed to work
out for himself from being on the spot. In practice you can interfere if the
subordinate is making an error which will jeopardise the attainment of the
object you have in view.

f) The orders should not try to arrange anything too far in advance. Elaborate
directions for various hypothetical cases are to be avoided. It is possible that
one of these cases may occur, but it is just as likely that something unforeseen
may happen, leaving the subordinate uncertain, now, of what should be done.
On the other had it is nearly always important for the subordinate to recognise
clearly the general object aimed at by the order, so that they themselves may
be able to strive to attain it if the general situation demands a procedure
different from that originally directed. (The difficult aspect of giving orders
dealt with here is giving the subordinate a clear enough idea of the intention,
so that he can use his initiative in a changing situation without trying to
prescribe details in advance which could end up hindering the subordinate’s
initiative. There is obviously no harm in the commander trying to foresee some
of the possible responses of the enemy, but he does not have to burden the
troop leaders with them.)

g) Particulars of time and place should be exactly given.

h) Underline the opening words of each paragraph to emphasise them.

I am returned from Origins and many hours of Kriegsspielling there, and we are off!

One of the toughest things for my 1970's wargame trained brain to remember is that kriegsspiel is event and not turn driven. It isn't necessary to always advance the clock in one hour intervals, rather the clock should advance until something happens. In this case, there weren't a ton of decisions to be made by anyone between 0430 and 0630, so we've jumped two hours.

The modern photos represent life goals for me.  My kind of crazy.  They’ve been around for years and I’ve never been able to suss out  who they are and what palace let them in.

You don’t have to play the KS double-blind,  of course, but you can’t doubt from the rules themselves that that’s how they’re intended to be played.  There were fellows at Historicon that ran 1824 minis games.  Interesting exercise, but, frankly, I’ve always found the move to contact the most interesting.

Yes, we jumped two hours. We have a lot of movement, but no one in contact as of yet. Keep in mind that I may do two, three, or even four hour turns in the interest of moving the game to action. You'll want to write your orders from this perspective. Figure you're providing direction for the day, not hour-by-hour. When something happens, that then may trigger order updates. Otherwise, formations are moving to carry out their existing orders.

In that spirit, we'll have another turn Wednesday evening.

Thanks to everyone for getting orders and dispatches into me quickly. It makes it MUCH easier to keep things rolling.

A reminder/request: If you send the same dispatch to more than one recipient (and it is much appreciated that you are all sending me those as individual emails) it can be very helpful to your fellows to know that you sent the message to someone else. In the message, putting in something like "Copies to XXX" lets them know that others have also received the message.

Next turn will be Friday, assuming we don't all just spontaneously combust from the heat.

We've jumped two hours again. There was a fair amount going on in terms of movement and positioning this turn, and a good bit of die rolling. I've allowed various commanders to detach small cavalry units for specific missions beyond the generic 10KM radius patrols. Like messengers, I've been rolling to see if these small cavalry detachments come to grief as a result of cavalry skirmishing.

The next turn will be an hour - things are on the verge of happening. My intent is to process the turn Sunday. I'll be out of town from Thursday evening to Sunday afternoon and away from my gaming computer.

As always, if you received not messages or updates from me, your situation is unchanged.

Apologies for this turn taking a bit longer to get to you than I had hoped. I had car trouble coming home from Ohio on Sunday and then some minor oral surgery on Monday. Yesterday all I wanted to do was get liquored up to recover from the prior two days!

As always, unless you received an update from me, your situation remains the same.

I've been reading Prelude to Waterloo again, mulling over just how completely confused the messaging during the campaign and how this directly impacted Quatre Bras and Ligny. It was a lot more dangerous to be a staff officer carrying messages to a general in combat than our game portrays. If we did what seems historical, an awful lot of messages would never arrive!

1830 19 April 1809

Lots going on!

Since battle, or the possibility of battle, is happening all over, here's some detail about how battles work and what I need to know from you when there is a battle.

Battles happen in two hour rounds. At the end of a round, each side decides if it will continue battle or withdraw, unless one side is completely defeated and has broken.

Battles are fought with three deployment areas: Left, Center, Right. I need to know what forces you want deployed in each of these sectors each round. I also need to know what sector any participating leaders are deployed in.

Units may also be deployed in reserve. Units in reserve can be moved out of reserve and deployed into one of the three sectors at the beginning of a combat round. Units deployed into one of the three sectors can be placed in  reserve at the beginning of a combat round.

Combat happens by rolling a minimum of three dice per side. The side with the higher total roll wins that round and does the difference of the two rolls as morale damage to the losers forces. The winner then takes half of the difference between the rolls as morale losses. Each side can roll additional dice depending on the amount and type of forces engaged, the leaders engaged, terrain, fortifications, flank attacks, etc. Light cavalry adds 1 die, heavy cavalry two. 2:1 odds adds two dice for the attacker, 1:2 odds would add two dice for the defender. Attacking across a minor river would add one die to the defender. Leaders have tactical ratings that can add a die, or, if they are exceptionally poor leaders, subtract a die - but no side ever rolls less than three dice.

If one side wants to break off, there is a disengagement round. During that round only the side breaking off the combat takes morale losses.

Once a unit's morale reaches zero, it breaks. At the end of the round where a unit breaks, the enemy advances into the area the broken unit occupied, and gains a moral advantage. Friendly units adjacent to the broken unit suffer a morale penalty, and likely now have enemy units on their flank.

Due to the above, a unit that seems close to breaking should be removed to the reserve and a fresh unit deployed, if forces are available.

If a side disengaged, there may be a pursuit phase of two hours of movement, where the side that didn't disengage can use his cavalry to pursue. Disengaging cavalry in good order will screen the retreating units, but will take loses, If there's no screening cavalry, retreating infantry will take losses. Broken units not protected by cavalry can take severe losses.
At the end of all the battle rounds, units lose strength points (i.e. take casualties) based on their morale state. Basically, the bigger the morale loss, the worse the casualties. Units also take fatigue for every hour they are in battle.

I hope that helps you have some idea how battles are fought, and helps you plan. As you can see, this is a pretty course system at this level. I may provide a extra die on occasion to someone who tells me they are using some clever tactic, or who has managed to maneuver into the enemy rear, or something of that nature. Having said that, don't try and micro-manage your deployment; the combat system really can't handle those kinds of inputs.

I'm fairly certain my very Lutheran MIL feels about cheerleaders they same way Martin Luther would have.

"...nuns are kind of like cheerleaders, right?"

I hope everyone had a Happy New Year.
I gave people a couple of extra days due to the holiday to get me orders. I'm shooting for Tuesday for the next turn.

I hope everyone had a good holiday and is successfully back at it now that we're nearly through January!


Sorry for the long pause, gentlemen. I've been very engaged on development work for another expansion for Horse & Musket that will be released in February. Checking and testing 20 scenarios turned out to be more time consuming than I had planned.


I believe everyone has had a message if not an outright sitrep. If you need more information please let me know. Now that I have more time, I'm planning a turn on the weekend. We have a couple of battles in progress!

Sorry for the delay folks - I've been waiting for orders. I'm still waiting for orders for some folks, but we're proceeding anyway.
If you have orders, please send them ASAP.

I hope everyone is well and bunkered down. Fortunately we can play wargames remotely.


As always, let me know if you need SITREPs.
