One of them (also named Cy or maybe Sy ??? ) said he'd like to be in the reserves, and I gave him the email address for the game -- if he hasn't registered in yet, I can't recommend counting on him.  :-\

My brother was the other one, and he was worried that he'd either be expected to play it during a week-plus trip to Chicago with his wife and kids (starting Thursday) or that he'd be lost if he got called up when he got back. He did want me to keep him updated on how the game was going, but I can't really do that since I don't know in advance what side he'd be called in on (unless we just designated him a French reserve commander).

Sooo, yeah sorry I've got nuthin' atm.  :-\ :-[

I've got a call in to my cousin.  He's pretty busy, but, this is right up his alley.

You are seriously not telling me I have gone from being a novice sitting in the reserve...twiddling my thumbs to being in the high-command on the Prussian side....that's just bonkers!

What the hell, I randomly drew Napoleon, remember. I've played maybe four Nappy-era games briefly in my life, and definitely nothing in this particular mode.

Experience is absolutely NOT a benefit here in some ways.  Mssr. Bonaparte-Pratt is doing a fine job simply thinking through a lot of this stuff.

Cyrano - I haven't posted in this thread (or checked the forums really) since that last post of mine asking to be relieved. I was a dummy trying to take this on; there's too much to try to take in and I just don't have the time. I thought it would be fairly easy to wrap my head around, so shame on me for making that assumption. I haven't been able to read any of the emails sent, either, except the first few, and I'd just hold the entire thing up at this point I think. Let me know.

Gotcha.

Saw your post and should have responded and said what was going on in my head.

Steffan was straight gone so, when Blackhorse stepped up, I slotted him in there.

I'll vacate you from the roster in the hope that one of the folks Dr. S. is recruiting line up.

No joke, the orders have started rolling in and I'm excited.

Nappy has sent his initial orders after much consultation, for the umpire to disburse to the corps.

Now I sit back and wait...  >:D
