I'm pretty sure that "jiggery-pokery" is still illegal in Wisconsin.

Is Wisconsin French or Prussian?   >:D

I'm going over dispatches tonight, with great enjoyment (and in at least one case with great relief, for reasons which I will discuss much later in the after action, since this is an open thread and all game information should be going through Jim). I have not received my final positioning yet from Jim, so the end of the turn per se hasn't happened yet.

This would be a good time to ask Jim however: may we send maps back and forth to each other in communiques? The French side hasn't done this yet (where I've been able to see), and while it's fun to figure out intentions from text I would expect some maps (perhaps hastily scribbled?) to be realistically exchanged, via the umpire of course, in courier correspondence.

Aye.  Some sort of visual representation would be much appreciated.

You want to draw it and scan it and send it, I'll transmit it.

Commanders in the era would have used words...and the occasional pointing at maps which were much cruder than the ones you have, I gather.

That said, if you need particular clarity from me as to your position, just shout.

All right...almost scared to open the door, buuuuut.

GAME TIME IS 0600 HOURS, 12th OCTOBER 1806

I would ask all commanders to clear up any last minute over-nightery and everyone else (who already hasn't) to ship me their 0600 orders.

I have a sense that today...

Um -- I'm loathe to send out 0600 orders if I haven't received a post from you yet reporting my position at the end of the day. (Note to self: DON'T TYPE OUT WHETHER OR WHICH CORPS I'M WITH ON AN OPEN CHANNEL!) The last time I received my position report was the end of the first day's marching when my HQ camped for the night; how did our march on Day 2 go?

Also, I need some clarification if you've passed along all courier arrivals that are going to arrive by 6 am, so I'm not expecting anymore before Day 3 starts.

Game Time Is:  0700 12 October 1806

If you have received no messages from Control, presume that you have no enemy contacts and are marching under the orders submitted.

I was only able to tick the clock a tiny bit forward.  Waiting for a few clarifying exchanges before really giving Sunday (for so 12th October 1806 was) the gas.

Trying not to go too fast as I know not everyone is at liberty to obsess over the (U.S.) holiday weekend as I am.

Still, fun things are afoot!!
