        Itís been a rough month for ships. If we keep up at this rate no one will have a navy left by 1806.

          • Poor minors in desperate attempt to save their countries from invaders

              We'll have to be the Liberators of all those folks.

              But if we ever play this game again, I'll specify that NO freaking minors get my sponsorship, that one omission is destroying our points and getting us nothing and no way to recover it.

              • If no major powers back an attacked minor, the attacker does not lose the pol pts for the DoW and the minor immediately surrenders. That means a over all +1 or +2 for the attacker. The point behind backing minors is to deny free pol pts to competitors. The less you do, the more they gain.

                But it is a balance,... picking which minors to back and which to not.

                For example: in the case of Sweden France lost a couple of Pol pts in two naval battles, however, Russia has lost $36 and 6 MP in light ships plus $1 to raise the new fleet. Instead of expanding the fleet, gold must now be used to replace losses (heavy or light depending on the Czar/Tsar).

                • Prussia

                  Don't forget gents,

                  Until I here from the Iron Duke or Skob about taking over Prussia it will by up for control as a UMP (Uncontrolled Major Power) for those eligible to bid.

                  I will post the modifiers this evening when I get home.

                  • Poor Danes... 20 000 surrendered to 4000 Brits after inflicting heavy losses on them

                    Comment


                    • The Brits were lucky the Danes weren't a bit more lucky with the dice,... the entire amphibious force could have been lost.

                      This siege was a clear example of the role morale plays in this game. The British had 4.5 morale, the Danes 2.

                      • Thought for Baztanz

                        Gentlemen,.... Baztanz (Barry) has taken a turn for the worse and entered the hospice long term. He has bowed out as Britain, however, the Iron Duke has been waiting in the wings for a spot and will take over after a coaching period in the game mechanics. If he asks any questions here in the open forum please give him a hand.

                        Widow Maker is also on our spares list and was in line for britain but I could not get in touch with him. If WM likes the Prussian throne is also open.

                        Cheers.

                        • Hmm, Widow Maker contacted me as British player couple weeks ago with prepositions etc.

                          Comment


                          • Yes, I know but then he vanished. Britain, France, Russia and then Austria are the bone and muscle that make this game move forward. The Spanish, Turks and Prussian can be handled as UMPs if necessary but the core powers as UMPs would make the game very difficult to keep moving forwards in a logical manner.

                            • Do you want to freeze it in place over the weekend to find a Prussian then?

                              My biggest concern would be with keeping the players we have.

                              Comment


                              • We can finish the month but as I mentioned, Prussia can function pretty well as a UMP with players bidding for its control. The system works pretty well as it has built in guards against abuse.

                                It could also remain under semi-auto control until we here from Widow Maker.
