    While France has a couple of clarification to resolve they are 'behind the lines and should not effect the naval moves.

    So onwards we go.

    Turkish naval moves next

            • Headlines - Russian army in Masovia Routed!!

              Mack defeats Russian army in Masovia - captures Russian Count von Bennigsen

              In major engagement between combined Austro-Prussian force under FML Mack, and Russian forces under Count von Benningsen, near the Masovian frontier with Russia, Russian forces suffered a serious defeat. A sharp attack by Austro-Prussian forces, holding a considerable numerical advantage, shattered the smaller Russian force and the ensuing cavalry pursuit destroyed any hope of reforming the Russian remnants. During the pursuit Austrian cavalry of the Light Infantry Corps caught and captured Count von Benningen (Levin August Gottlieb Theophil of Brunswick) the commander of the Russian forces.

              Reaction from the palaces in St Peterberg, Vienna and Berlin are yet to be issued.

              Etchings at eleven.

              • While no full proclamation seems forthcoming,

                The Emperor lets it be known he extends his gratitude to all who fought at Masovia, his condolences to the families of the fallen.

                Medals and decorations will be bestowed according to the nominations made by general Mack.

                Count von Bennigsen and other captured enemy officers will be afforded all the courtesies their rank and title dictates, until a peace settlement can be reached.

                  • "The elected eagle conquers all."

                    "Aquila Elegit Iovis" - quite literally translates as "Jupiter's chosen Eagle" were Jupiter in turn refers to the Latin "father god" - Jove.

                    Of course in this context it refers to the fact the Roman Emperors are - in theory - elected, by a council of electors,

                    in reality of course by 1800 that practice had long become ceremonial in nature, but for the purpose of this game I decided to reinstate it

                      • well we learned that neutral armies can attack enemy territories when loaned out. Interesting game dynamic


                        Cadiz - 1 corps: no move, maintain siege - forage, 1I loss

                        guessing that is tangiers unless the guys in Cadiz are besieging themselves

                          Yes, there are sometimes small inaccuracies in in posted moves but we all get the idea.
                          And with loaning - I understand that loaned troops act like country`s origin troops. We had a naval battle some time ago where Turkish fleet were assisting RN although France is not in war with Turkey.

                            naval forces I could see being denied

                            nappy with French corps not so much

                            but it does seem to make the game pointless continue because no matter who your at war with france will do the below

                            ie france never fights a war for the rest of the game and just loans out it whole army lol

                            france gains vps and never has to actually declare war or honor any peace treaty

                            btw same could be done for UK Turkey spain surrenders to france or Turkey but the armies get loaned to the country the surrender does not occur to

                            • This from the people that were going to smash Spain?

                              You are using Turkish units to mask a British-lead (Wellington) and transported (with Russian help!!!) invasion of a nation that had those same French troops in it since before there was any fighting between Turkey and Spain.
                              What were the French supposed to do, stand around and starve while Spain collapsed?

                              C'mon, its a week till the end of the turn, then we can have some real action.

                                Why would France do so? Making a war is not only loosing VP`s but also gaining provinces, income etc. in case of successful campaign. And by the way loaned troops could win battles and gain VP`s but also could loose and in result have reduction of VP`s. And after all others could declare war on France at any time that would resolve loaned troops problem as you described it, wouldn`t it?
