A new look for EvE Whos Who

I've been looking to find a better way of doing EvE Who's Who with more flexibility. Initially I have decided to move it from my own web page space to a Google website format. The advantage of this for me is a better simple GUI editor and site management; also have the facility to add others who can edit the site so we can have other contributors.

I've done an initial trial of the new site, see Will move rest of pages over - when done will let you know;
Feedback please

A thought...

Good Morning Sirs!

I wondered ,as we approach the end of the year ,I might make a suggestion? I would like to remind the company of EvE that I,for one,including many others I fear, would be interested in seeing the updating of the book "Who's who in Eve" in include entries from our newer memebers and allow older ones to update. Also in order to fully utilse this glorious community could we work upon a grand map so we could once more see our place and those of others in Europa- to aid alliances,invasions,alarms &excursions in the coming year?

Couriers to Wittenberg

October 11th, 1713

...Couriers have already arrived in Kingdom of Wittenberg taking personal messages from both Emperor Charles VI and Princess Elisenda to H.M. King Leopold, letting him know in advance the scheduled journey of that young Galatan/Catalan Lady through his land, as well as some confidential details about her otherwise small retinue. A more detailed file comprising listings and safe-conduct copies have also been delivered to Count Hermann Munster.

[Out of character, please consider Princess Elisenda retinue already on their way and about to enter Wittenberg, so that she can be freely introduced in an ppropriate scene at will, accordingly with your own interests. I'm going to suspend for a while my Defiant Principality narrations on her particular journey, in order not to hamper eventual scenes/adventures inside Wittenberg. If any interest or need to contact me whatever the reason for, my usual gaming e-mail is soldadets [at] wargames [dot] cat --Lluis ]

Couriers up and down

...Couriers have been dispatched by Emperor Charles VI to King Louis XIV at Versailles, and also to Wittenberg and the rest of lands on the Vienna - Paris road, acknowledging them on the imminent journey through their respective countries of an official retinue under His protection: Lady Elisenda Folc de Cardona, who has just been appointed as Princess of Galatea/Catalonia by His Imperial Majesty, wishes to arrive in Gallia as safely and fast as possible, with the aim to obtain King Louis' approval to the appointment and ease the achievement of a satisfactory peace with that powerful Nation.

The above mentioned couriers are carrying full detailed accounts on the journey scheduled milestones, retinue members listings and safe-conducts to be delivered to respective Authorities, along with a request on the additional measures they esteem appropriate to ensure the retinue's peaceful transit through their lands. The retinue itself can be identifiable through the two standards they will carry:

Also, others couriers have been sent by Princess Elisenda herself to the Sovereigns of Poland, Beerstein and Lagerburg-Slobbovia, acknowleding them on her pledge to visit their respective Imagi-Nations as soon as her duties in Versailles are duly fulfilled.

Details on the whole can be learnt here.

Death of a Grand Duke!

From the pages of the Pappenheim Zeitung

The bell is tolling as the slow procession wends it's way though the streets of Traunsberg led by the hearse bearing the body of Grand-Duke Otto of Pommaine and escorted by the household troops of the Grand-Duchy. Citizens of the Duchy lined the streets to pay their last respects to their ruler, who despite his warmongering early years had managed to find a middle course through the struggles of the middle of the century by supporting equal support to most other protagonists in their dynastic struggles. Following the hearse was a carriage containing the grand-Duke's second wife Maria and his younger son Konrad. There was much speculation about why his surviving sun and heir-apparent Karl was not present. Some felt it was a sign of the continued estrangement between father and son that seemed to have started when the eldest son Johan was killed during the last conflict involving the Prussians and Austrians. Others, less charitably, have suggested that his wife, the Emperoror's niece, Lieselotte was more interested in Viennese society.

All will be revealed tomorrow when the Grand-Duke's will is read and it seems that various powers with an interest in the region will be attending to see what final surprise the Grand-Duke will spring, if any.

The Sleeping Wolf Wakes

It was the dream of Ullo Chubakov to bring his people into a new era of unity and prosperity. It was his dream to end generations of infighting, vendetta, and petty warfare. In this dream the wide expanses of the Alcovian Steppes were be bathed in endless fields of golden wheat and not blood.

The Sleeping Wolf would wake and it would make the world hear it's howl!

Further movement in a seven years warz game

The Grand Mappe after three major moves ...

This time the big battle actions took place:

The BIG BATTLE was for Pilsner, the capitol of Saxe-Bearstein, facing odds of 1.4 to one the Austrian armies under Daun and Bearstein forces fought hard, even having a successful round in the middle of the day, some 4 hours after the first artillery barrages though the Austrians and Bearsteiners were in retreat. Indeed the pursuit was fierce enough to wipe out the remaining Bearstein forces. With some 60% casualties overall the allied force under Daun, who narrowly escaped injury when a battery nearby exploded, has consolidated in Burtzenia. A new all-Austrian line now faces the Altmoranian hordes. In the same battle Prince Henry of Altmorania was badly wounded when thrown from his horse following a charge that the had successfully led. Though sill with the army Prince Henry is not able to effectively take command.

On the east front of Altmorania, the siege of Miastokrol is over, with some 25% casualties the Altmoranian forces have withdrawn leaving Russians in control of the defences under the command of General Solikov.

East of Tipplebruder a Stagonian army was repulsed by the forces of the Empress.
Those retreating Stagonians will now be seeking shelter and not in any mood to be rebuffed...

Further Stagonian aggression was into Vienna! Again the results were terrible for Stagonia ... 55% casualties and the rest were taken prisoner.

Other actions were at sea with the Britannains utterly destroying Dutch shipping off the coast of Ober Nord Westfalen.

Frankfurt Am Main Tête-à-tête

Date: 11 November 1761/2011
Location: Frankfurt Am Main - The Largest Gallian Magazine in Germania
Specifically: l'Intendant l'Comte de Bastille's HQ
Situation: Tête-à-tête
The war between Gallia and Hesse-Seewald is now in its sixth year. Activities in 1761/2011 once again resulted in a stalemate on all fronts. Cost has been staggering for all parties. Gallia has turned to allies Russi and Saxe-Raschstein to raise and pay for new Army units. Hesse-Seewald sent almost half of the Army away as mercenaries to replenish its coffers. Meanwhile on 11 November....

Lieutenant Général Chevert ascends the stairway of l'Comte de Bastille's headquarters at the Gallian magazine for a private tête-à-tête.

Bastille: "Bonsoir Chevert, mon ami de guerre." (Good evening my war companion)
Chevert: "Oui Monsieur l'Intendant ... bonsoir."
Bastille: "This way, if you please ... into my office."

Bastille: "What news Chevert?"
Chevert: "The most astounding opportunity has developed to end the war!"
Bastille: "We've stalemated for six years. What could it be? "

Chevert: "I will tell you. The Czar has significantly increased his Army raising new units and by bringing more regular and reserve battalions and squadrons closer to East Prussia. Prinz Wilhelm of Saxe-Raschstein recently pledged to field additional cavalry, infantry and artillery as well to oust the Germanians from his electorate. Finally our old foe, Hesse-Seewald has sent nearly half it's Army away as mercenaries."

Bastille: "I am taken aback Monsieur l'Général."

Chevert: "You must be ready Bastille to bring all supplies to maximum proportions and insure that our hosts, The Frankzonians - especially Der Gross Herzhog Artur - cheerfully cooperate."

Bastille: "Oui. Surely they will if they realize with the possibility of the war ending, we will depart for Gallia leaving them to rebuild their industries and their Germanic lives."

Chevert: "Let us hope so. Meanwhile, we will soon commence a winter surprise. Let us now look at the map and the infamous Fulda Gap."

Closing Remarks:

{1} Arthur if you read this, let us hear from you ... my dear fellow! Arise.

{2} Our annual light troop game is scheduled on 3 December. The above is a preamble to that game day.

{3} The annual winter terrain game will further the story sometime in February at Der Alte's Fritz's new and fabulous game room.

{4} A month or two later we will resume the BIG Battalion Game Day at a venue in Woodstock, IL on three tables each sized 6'x28'. Shocking amount of space, I know.

{5} Further information about The Fulda Gap will be available in a week or two on The Campaigns In Germania Blog.
Adieu, mes amis,

Another Catalan-Occitan Imagi-Nation


For those specially interested in this 'Eveuropean' area and, having already accepted alternate / 'what-if?' History, then 'original' political geography (Poictesme), are willing to go one step beyond (would it be madness?), adding a limited geographical alteration.

French Imagi-Battalions

These are my first two Imagi-battalions to be added to my French army, the Corps du Vin (which I have already built, using real wine-producing regional Regiments - Champagne, Touraine, Medoc etc). However the rapid buildup of Perfidious Albion on the continent has necessitated reinforcements.

On the left is the Regiment de Poictesme (see the post below on EvE for the background to this), with the eventual design of the Drapeau d'Ordonnance we discussed shown here. Poictesme is an imaginary Southern French region imagined by the writer James Branch Cavell in his series of books. I imagine the Regiment Poictesme as an ex Milices unit (so it is in white at the moment, no cuff or turnback colours...though they may come in time...)

On the right is the Batalion Valais, a Swiss battalion from the Valais wine region, this was invented thanks to some EvE and TMP people's input - taking the Napoleonic era Batalion Valais and imagining what it would look like in French service in the Seven Years War , complete with a suitable Drapeau from Valais's colours.

I put them up here rather than on my blog, even though unfinished*  as we have been talking about the Poictesme flag on EvE all last week and this just seemed a nicer way of displaying my final design :).

To follow in the Corps du Vin's "Brigade Imaginaire" is the Lorraine imagi-Regiment Mosel and the contingent contributed by my German Imagi-Nation,

(*Apologies - flags unweathered, troops unwashed, un-drybrushed, and even still deflocked as I have just rebased the entire army onto 2" frontage, 1" depth bases)

Poictesme - a French Imagi-Nation

I was looking at potential fictional French areas for an Imaginary regiment for my French 7YW army, and came across the Imagi-Nation Poictesme - Wikipedia:

"Poictesme (pronounced "pwa-tem") is a fictional country or province which forms the setting of the fantasy works of James Branch Cabell, known collectively as The Biography of Manuel. Poictesme is ruled by the Count Dom Manuel. It was the author's intention to situate Poictesme roughly in the south of France. The name suggests the two real French cities of Poitiers (medieval Poictiers) and Angoulême (medieval Angoulesme)"

If anyone knows the Drapeau d'Ordonnance of Poictesme I'd be interested :)

Update - have uploaded a drawing of a Drapeau as discussed in the comments

...and here is teh Drapeau I thought of originally...

Re 18th century other races...

I am currently thinking about antiquarian adventurers belonging to a Antiquarian society based in Tradgardland. They will be used in dungeon/wideness adventures.Today I was pondering how other "fantasy races" such as elves,orcs and dwarves would have developed in the 18th century- any thoughts figure suggestions?

Will the benefactor please stand up...

On arrival home from work today I found a letter addressed to me containing a lovely 25mm plastic lantern and pole. I cannot read the signature and wondered if my kind benefactor might let me know so I could say a heartfelt thanks...

Can you shine a light on this (apologies for pun)

Can you tell me who manufactures 25/28mm lanterns? Particularly the portable kind a figure could carry.

Battle of Montblanc, 4th October 1713

Taking advantage of a gap in the Hispannic/Spanish lines leaving unprotected a town that was key to the communication between two of their major armies, two Galatan/Catalan columns converged upon that town -not other than Montblanc, a beautiful medieval city not far from Tarragona where Catalan mythology sets their version of the Legend of Saint George and the Dragon!

As it couldn't be otherwise, Saint George clearly favoured the Galatans and allowed them to release the town, expelling from it the Hispannic garrison -not without an after battle intense negotiation, while sunlight was slowly fading away. This was finally arranged in a honourable way to the Hispannic commander, whose men had so bravely behaved in spite of numerical inferiority...

If curious, you can read the illustrated battle report here: Montblanc town released!

Moving images of The Empress of Russia

Two documents about the youth and early achievements of Czarina Ekaterina Alekseyevna are -for the time being- freely visible in full through the Strange Sidelight:
- The Rise of Catherine the Great,
- The Scarlet Empress.

As it's so often the case, their historical accuracy is debatable; the second, specially, is crammed with 'surreal' images, but the upstairs mounted charge (the 'coup' starts # 1:34:00) is as memorable as spectacular.

Edited: As a matter of old movies featuring Catherine, and on a totally fanciful note (the film was a comedy, and indeed a parody of the 'Frederician' propaganda movies of the time), Baron Münchausen dines and more with the Czarina, before riding a cannonball (shrewdly shot by a jealous Potemkin).
From the 1943 movie Münchhausen visible in full (and Agfacolor) on YouTube.

Meanwhile, in Unkerlant

I realize news from the current struggle in Unkerlant has been sparse. Life and missing participants always plague campaigns, but I hope to soon kick start some activity.
Recently, Borogravian forces were bloodily repelled in the Arch Duchy of Volborg. The battle itself was particularly brutal on horse flesh, and both sides have become scarce on cavalry. Borogravia was able to find a pass through the mountains and across the treacherous River Vollen, thanks to traitorous cur of a local lord.
Meanwhile, across the country, Franistover and Zlobenia face off for control of the west, in what is sure to be a titanic battle (by Unkerlant standards).

Landgrave of Lorraine attacks Beerstein

After weeks of maneuvers on the northern border of the Reich Duchy of Beerstein, Landgrave of Lorraine forces crossed into the Barony of Brewski and quickly captured the Heineken Abbey. Reich Duke Wilhelm was only able to muster a small force of two infantry brigades, a cuirassier brigade, the Holstein Leib Hussars, and the Slitz Artillery Battery to attempt to stall the Lorraine Advance. The first encounter at Heineken Abbey is posted on the Beerstein site.

Garden Wars returns for 2011

The Garden Wars have returned in 2011 and this is the first installment.

Read the AAR on MurdockS MarauderS

Bitten by the Raj bug.

I started another imagi-nation here is the link

A never-ending plot

We've just dropped a new layer of complication to the Defiant Principality general plot, expressed by the addition of a new playing character whose role is likely to become key in the desperate war that rebel Principality is fighting against their powerful lord, King Philip V of Hispannia. This new character is Lord Guillem Ramon VIII de Montcada, Marquis of Aitona, Colonel of the Hispannic Guards Household Infantry and the main supporter of King Philip among the High Nobility of Galatea/Catalonia.

If our first storyboard layer consisted just of war of a minor Nation against a major Power, shown in a simplified and therefore, somewhat manichean point of view (the enemy are "the evil ones", you know), we later added a second layer on, intended to exploit future internal dissents (through a popular, republican party eventually confronted to the ruling class). Now, this new third layer is aimed at going further beyond, showing Hispannic internal tensions about the ultimate solution to be applied to the rebel Principality, as well as a new episode of struggle -this time, between the two most powerful nobiliary houses in Galatea/Catalonia: those of Cardona and Montcada, each of them siding to one of the WSS pretenders to the Hispannic Crowns.

If curious, you can read Lord Montcada's introduction into the story here:

Frankszonia Update

Phil Malthus has tracked down the "missing" Arthur of Frankszonia and emailed me the following updated information:

"Well, some good news – I tracked down Arthur and he is alive – he broke his leg twice (!) in January, and got shoved into a nursing home for 3 months.

He’s out now, and very slowly recuperating, but his computer & toys & paints are all buried under an accumulation that has built up in the interim.

I’m not sure when he hopes to have it excavated and available for access again."

So at least we now know that he's still with us. Let us hope that he will soon be able to get to his computer and rejoin us.

With the Electorische Armee Thueringen in control of the Saegerwerktal (Sawmill Valley), they now have a good jumping off point for an offensive later this summer against the Reichsarmeeabteilung Obere-Sachsen, hopefully as part of a wide-spread offensive by the Electoral forces against the Imperial and Gallian forces.
