    And what is there for people that just want to have a good military campaign for a few months without all this constant endless POLITICAL back-biting and mewling and wailing and hand-wringing and theatrical garbage & nonsense about the morality of everything under the sun?

    They didn't have Star Trek-style moralizing 200 years ago.

                            • Ok,...battle has been engaged. Posts to follow throughout the day.

                              Copenhagen - The Hessians cross the Danish causeways to assault the capital. 12,000 Hessian infantry and 4,000 Hessian cavalry were driven back by a garrison of 2,000 British militia and 2,000 Danish regulars.

                              The Danes and Badenese fight an inconclusive skirmish at 388.

                              Wellington eludes Napoleon's grasp and withdraws into the Spanish mountains.

                              Nish - Outflank vs Outflank becomes a morale battle. This is never good for armies with lower morale (and is actually quite a rare event). A large army of Turkish feudal levies is battered mercilessly by the French Imperial Guard and Grand Batteries. The French gunners accounted for 4I of the 18I lost while the cavalry pursuit finished off a number of weakened corps.

                              The feudal cavalry forces are largely intact and, believe it or not, there are more feudal corps not yet engaged. Feudal troops also 'regenerate' for free every January.

                              SO!!! Quite a bit of excitement already this month!! Lt's see what else theis summer campaign season will have in store.

                              • In other news

                                Had some email exchanges with a few players concerning working around any "loaned corps/fleets" glitches.

                                One suggestion is that loaned corps be stationed, with a good leader, adjacent to the host corps and are used as 'reinforcements'. This has the normal risk of them not arriving on the battlefield but then so does the glitch. This apparently works.

                                Another suggestion was to limit the loaned corps in a stack to one or two. This also has had some, but not total success.

                                Regarding money transfers to major powers. Cash sent during a monthly tun to a major power does not arrive until the following econ phase. It can all arrive, some of it may arrive or even none of it may arrive. It does eventually all get to the destination but it can take time (gold shipments are apparently, never direct). In the meantime, these delays mean the money not usable by the receiver or the sender. I have alluded to this in the past but it is being done by others as well.

                                Rather than send money to a major power ally, use the loan corps strategy so that the power with the cash handles all the campaign expenses. This leaves the power that was to receive the money all their regular cash for maintenance and production, they need only keep a few coins for emergencies, while the need for a war chest is almost eliminated. Cash on hand can be used by both parties immediately as needed.

                                So,... there you go. Something more to add to your play books and stratgey guides for our campaign.
