"Six Days in October" -- Organizational Post
« on: September 19, 2016, 09:02:42 PM »
Greetings and Good Evening (At Least From Here in America):

The much-respected accounting firm of Dewey, Cheatam, & Howe (formerly Hungadunga, Hungadunga, and Hungadunga, Esq.) has randomly drawn commanders for this fine exercise.  Matters broke down like this -- with particular thanks to those who voluntarily assigned themselves to the reserves.

For the King of Prussia:

Hohenlohe - DoubleDeuce
Brunswick - Hatricus
Blucher - MetalDog
Ruchel - Barthheart

For the Empire of France:

Napoleon I - JasonPratt
I Corps - Bernadotte - Duke of Earl
III Corps - Davout - James Sterrett (only my deep respect for the fates kept me from overturning this one)  >:D
IV Corps -- Soult -- Pinetree
V Corps -- Lannes -- PanzerDe
VI Corps - Ney - Dom
VII Corps -- Augereau -- Blackhorse
Imperial Guard Bessiere - VACANT -- May just assign to his Bonaparteness.
Cavalry Reserve -- Murat -- Lancer4321

Honored Reserve
Banzai_Cat
LegXXII
Tobias Archer
UCG

Weed and Porn
Bayonet Brant
The People of the Netherlands

I will shortly have a general rules post up in this thread.

In the meanwhile, will all commanders please e-mail me at jenacampaignATgmailDOTcom so I may set up proper comms?

This is all together exciting.

Best,

Jim

Relatedly, I shall be setting up an AAR for this later, but not until we're done probably just for sake of security and to preserve the fog.

Guess I didn't make the cut then guys?! Is it ok just to sit back and watch the action unfold? Really interested in seeing how this all works.

Cheers

@Hatricus:  Many apologies for the exclusion!!  I have assigned you to the reserve, but am working on something else moving forward.   Very much would like to involve you.

Especially if you get elected as the operation marshal or... I dunno, who's in charge of the Prussian corps? I mean, is it automatically assigned (like Nappy is necessarily in charge of French operations here), or will y'all be working that out among yourselves?

Dunno how it's gonna work... maybe we'll just gamble about without a tether... like in real life.....
