The game is running. I have sent the opening briefings to the two teams to decide who is taking which command and to prepare their plans.

Could you possibly post rosters and an OOB (of the players)?

I need to set up my whisper list and such. Do we have a dedicated forum?

I'm excited!

Team summary is here:

http://forum.kriegsspiel.org.uk/t224p60-campaign-discussion#1812

I haven't agreed with this websites admin about a dedicated forum yet. I will when something happens. I think there should be one thread for people to chat out-of-character about the game's progress without revealing anything important, observers and others can contyribute too; a thread for the two sides map and battle players to post AARs and propoganda and screenshots . This thread would be an "in-character" thread (I like to see some role-playing), and possibly a third thread that I'll use for official notices regarding the progress of the fighting.

What I have decided today is that when there is a battle and the SoW players assemble to play it I will have, already prepared and ready to send them, a briefing about the events in the campaign for that commander so far. Because the SoW players are taking the roles of possibly any commander on their side and will be fighting all the battles, they'll wear different hats on different game evenings - my idea is I'll send each player a summary of the experiences and the information available to that particular commander so each player can go into the fight armed with the info the person he's playing would have.

On top of that will no doubt also be a briefing from your respective corps or division commander summarising what is required in the coming battle. This should specify the basic reason you are there and what you need to do to accomplish your orders. These two briefings combined should be sufficient inspiration to let the players make the battles develop in meaningful ways!

As a side note, you can change my name to Darr Lehmann - Wittmann

I also just purchased the game today, although I don't have any of the expansions, I am happy to step in for a Confederate Battle Commander if need be, I am GMT -8hrs.

Hi a quick update I do not play SOW and you have me as a European player. I only played the demo several years ago and would ask that you remove my name from the list please.

Happy to set up the forums when you say what exactly you want and have a name for the campaign against which I can use for sub forum names etc...

Cheers

Ah, I'm Sorry Mark - though you should have asked to join one of the command teams! Very Happy

Wittman, sorry but I want to keep the command team quite separate from those who play battles, but you are more than welcome to join us for casual games.

Hello everyone. Unfortunately we may have lost a CSA map team player, he hasn't participated at all in the e-mails and planning discussion that's been going on a week. I've chased him by PM on these forums but no reply yet.

I'm going to open up his position in the team to anyone else who wants to take it; preference being given to people who do not intend to play in the SoW online campaign battles.

I filled the post above but unfortunately a SECOND CSA player has had to leave the game before it even starts due to being busy at work.

Would anyone like to command a CSA division?

I know from our discussion last wek that the campaign has started, Digby. Will the military censor allow you to say anything about its progress yet?

Father General, the post was filled several days ago by Paul.

@ Martin - I could begin narrating some events. I think I need a separate thread though.

Tell me the name of the campaign and I can set up the thread with that name under this section.

Yes a new thread would be good. I appreciate you will need to be careful what you say, but some sort of narrative (say a few days in arrears?) would be good for your pools of pc battlefield players, and probably others too. Get us into the zen of the thing and all that........

Don't actually need to know this, but am interested. When we get to resolving a battle, will the briefings actually be written by folks on the two map teams, based on their knowledge of the overall campaign?

You now have a new Campaign Forum and can post threads as appropriate as requested by Mr Digby
