Is anyone else amused about how those recommendations for order writing are themselves longer than any orders (per se) I've ever written?

They're longer than some of my sitrep updates, too!

(...some of them.  >:D )

I've seen your writing. Wikipedia is shorter than what you write.

0330 19 April 1809

Dawn in one hour. If you haven't yet, now would be a good time to get me orders for 19 April.

No pressuring, just checking in.

We are still up and running?

Yep - I've been waiting on a few responses. I'll have something going out tomorrow or this weekend.

...0430 19 April 1809

There are a lot of messengers on the roads. I'm going to shoot for another turn Tuesday before I head to Origins.

Napoleon, check you spam folder since some of the email I sent you ended up there before. Need a response from you!

Panzer, sent a reply at 4:11. I had seen it was helping wife and neighbor get the garden planted, in the mud and spotty rain.  :go-on:

Received! Just wanted to be sure you saw it. See you on Saturday.

0630 19 April 1809

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.

Heads up - next turn will be tomorrow night.  If you have orders, please get them to me before then!

Alright you lot...I'm waiting for some orders from some folks, so no turn tonight. If you are planning on orders for 0730, I need them ASAP!

I've just emailed all players concerning using email to send updates. Please respond to that email if you have an opinion either way.

I am also now going to post updates on my blog at https://panzerde.blogspot.com when the game clock advances.

We've been waiting on a couple of players on vacation, but will advance the clock today or tomorrow. Depending on how much contact there is, I may advance time more than one hour.

0730 19 April 1809

I only advanced time an hour. There were some important messages delivered this turn and I want to give players enough time to react to them.

I will send out status updates to everyone with current positions shortly.
