A Letter to the Empress

To Her Imperial Highness,

It was with great distress that I read of the extreme disparity in forces between Your Highness' troops and those of that warmongering Elector [Note: see ]. After conferring with my minister of war, we have decided that the stake of the Empire demands that we march to Your Highness' aid. My army, small though it may be, will be at your disposal in the upcoming campaign. You may expect a composite regiment of grenadiers, musketeers, fusliers, and artillery led by myself to be marching soon to Your Highness' side.

Respectfully, your very obedient servant,

Sigfried, Duke von Sachsen-Wachsenstein

[Posters note: The Sachsen-Wachsenstein force will consist of 24 musketeers, 24 fusiliers, 12 grenadiers, and two guns. See further details at ColCampbell's Barracks.]

Versailles, Gallia
l'Comte de Legerdemain
and Minister de Guerre Duc de Formidable briefly speak with each other.
l'Comte de Legerdemain: "Your Excellency. Here is word of reinforcement for the effort versus the Elector."

Formidable: "Oui. Sachsen-Wachsensteiners! That is good."
