  • Ave Legatus Scipius

    If your intention remains the same to lend your horse archers to my assault, I can use them to harass the archers they most certainly have in the tower, allowing my troops better chances of taking the portal with minimal loss.

    With respect

        • Publius Scaurus...

          Opening movements must be posted here, such that all know them & they are charted.

          Fear not of Fate, his course is not dictated outright by his immediate desires & foreknowledge.

          You shall have to capture horses for yourCavalry 'afoot' & Infantry shall not be Cavalry, but rapid movement of them is a plus.

          Quintus Flavius...

          Exactly my thoughts...

          I concur... I shall conform & render missile fire upon the tower for your assault.

          • I will move from beydar across the river and send in a few men to launch a probing/scouting/agressive recon attack on the north eastern wall section of nisibis

              I bid you Greetings,

              As we approach our time of action I feel I must ask a question of timing as to our attacks.
              Will there be phases to the assaults on the city, or will the Units engaging directly act in concert?
              I ask as the knowing of this will determine whether or not I will be Investing the hilltop around the tower.

              With all respect

              • I will start my march at dawn around 0500 as to avoid the sun and arrive practically un-noticed.

                    Aye that timing would be well for my own intentions are similar, I intend to have the camp completed before dawn and be moving against the tower before the darkness has fled.

                    Do you have intentions of Investing both the Oases with fortifications?

                    • yes, and no. I will have minor fortifications but will keep my force flexible incase I am needed somewhere else.

                        • Changed my mind I will send a small scout force over the wall in disgiuse to see if I can get some horses and cataphract armor and barding, and check the area out

                          • Greetings Fellows

                            Do we have an updated map? or are we still waiting on some commanders?

                            • No map as of yet and I think we still have a few more to go.
