Just a thought but we are not going to start this until after the holidays right? As a lot of us will be away.

Bulletin to l'Armée du Nord (1st of june 1815)

Soldiers,

I have returned to lead you onto the battlefield and to glory once again.
France has asked me to. It is the work of an irresistible force, the work of the unanimous will of a great nation which understands its duties and its rights.
The dynasty which was forced on the French nation was not suited to it. This fat king would associate itself neither with its feeling nor its customs. France demanded a liberator. I have therefore returned and from the spot where I landed, the love of my people bore me to the bosom of the capital. I have not usurped the throne as the dynasties of all Europe proclaim, and if so, where then was the resistance to my return?

Now I am to be considered an outlaw by entire Europe when in fact all I want is peace and to repay my people with happiness for the affection that they have shown me. It is they that want war, not I nor you! By clashing against the will of the French people, they have shown their true face: the one of the oppressor. France cannot be a friend of any oppressor, and therefore we march…

Let the eagles fly once again from steeple to steeple as they have flown in the past from Egypt to Warsaw.
We shall fall upon them as a torrent as we did at Rivoli, we shall crush them as we did at Austerlitz, we shall pound them in submission as we did at Wagram !!!!

No coalition can resist the might of the French people in arms…

Napoleon I,
Emperor of France

Good stuff Stratego, very inspirational. BTW, have you started thinking about your initial dispositions and the campaign planning that follows it?

I have been thinking along these lines in game terms. How about for the casual reader, the three C-in-C's write two communiques each game day for open reading in the thread. One as a general report to the home newspapers, the other to the home 'government' on the situation as they see it.

These would be in addition to the general rumour reports I'll be posting each day along with the various combat reports.

I'll take Pirch. I'm still a little confused as to how this plays out though.

Sehr gut! Willkommen, Pirch! Don't worry, you will grow in the job.
and as the usurper apparently hasn't had enough you will grow very tall indeed!!

Now we only need a Thielmann to make our command complete and start our first war council.

OK...

Just 5 commands to Go. Has anyone any questions, comments or suggestions about things so far?

When we are ready to start, the Emperor and then his commanders will/should send me private messages containg both their orders for their commands and their personal intentions in game. These will determine the actions on the night of the 15th-16th June. The first game turn (2 in game hours) will begin at 4AM on the 16th June. Its possible that some French commanders may have little to do, where as the 'allies' will be recieving their first intel and may wish to get their troops on the march.

Both sides will get private updates as events produce them and general rumours will be posted. Remember to that unless your player-commanders are together in game, messages to others (50 word max) should be sent through myself (acting as your ADC), and i'll send them on after the appropriate time. I hope its fairly clear.

Good luck

Gaz

Generals von Zieten, Pirch und Bülow, we will not wait for Thielemann, he will join us as soon as he reports for duty.

Gather on my location for War Council now, for reasons stated by Gaz above. After the war council is over, you will rejoin your respective Corps.

And don't worry, this is the last operational command I'll make over open lines. We will let the 'Fog of War' descend over our enemy.
I'm sure colonel Clausewitz, CoS at Thielemann's Corps, can appreciate this phrase
