Working up a scenario game for everyone

Post  Father General on Mon Oct 14, 2013 4:49 am

Hello all,

With life settling down into a more normal routine, I am working on a new scenario for us to attempt in the weeks ahead. So far, I have thought about the OOB and edited one name within it. Yep, that's a lot of work.

I plan to recreate a scenario on the Fox's Gap map, which Baldwin built and has. I'm not sure he reads this forum, so I think I will have to recreate everything. That scenario failed (crashed), nobody knows why.

Anyway, I am going to rebuild it, with the greatest challenge to me being OOB editing. Once I have the OOB built, scenario creation should be but a couple hour's work.

After it is built, I will post a doodle and see how much interest we can build for the game.

The game will have many units, so the more players we can have the better. I'll probably set up about 5-6 commands on each side, so if we can muster 10-12 souls, we'll be in good shape. How many people have been turning up for other games?

Anyway, the backstory is figured, the concept is in place, and now all that's left is to see how much interest there is and to do the grind.

So, how about it? Who's up for a good scenario battle?

It is a sorry fact that Gen. Georgia's supply of silverware has become, of late, embarrassing low.  So the opportunity to visit new locales and pick up the odd bauble is of great interest.  Please see that any unpleasantries take place in an unspoiled part of the countryside.

Hi Neal,

nice to have you back in business. How long has it been, like 6 months?
Sounds like an interesting scenario, keep it coming.
Regards

It's been probably close to 7 months, although I did a Napoleonic game a few months back.

I managed to do okay when my baby was an infant, requiring mostly his mother's care, but now the parenting duties are divided a bit more evenly which has been making it hard for me to commit to anything that takes more than an hour.

I got an old scenario from Baldwin yesterday, and I will probably use the OOB from it, although modified for the new scenario. My challenge right now is to decide just how big to make the entire thing. I'm thinking smaller because it is much easier to manage a small scenario than a large one.

I will work on it this week and will update you all over the weekend. :-)

Welcome back Neal.

I'm looking forward to playing ACW again, so your scenario has come at a good time.

Good to have you back, Neal. I too am ready for an ACW game, for a nice change.

I feel welcome and motivated.

Right now I'm thumbing through Leviticus for inspiration for the next scenario... Using the Confederate States Translation, of course...
