Oh, shit.

Gen. Freyberg: "Well, if you wave at them they'll usually wave back."

MERDE!

(Sorry, seemed to fit the moment.)

FYI, the management has asked me to keep sign-ups open over the weekend and I, of course, oblige.

So far I've got all eight participants down as having no "side" preference so will randomize commanders.

As to bribes, there is a rule within "Vol de L'Aigle" that allows each commander -- once per day -- to attempt to gain information by some means that fits the period.  The information may or may not be good.  There may be none at all.  But, while bribing me avails little, bribing a local toll official or mayor might...

Hi fellow wargamers and armchair generals,

my name is Steffen.

Doug/panzerde (Many Kudos & thanks!!!) informed me about your great plan to start a Kriegspiel depicting the JENA-AUERSTEDT operational setting.

if you still have a slot open please count me in.

Please excuse my English as only a german native speaker.

Greetings.

I too am interested in joining. I have even been to the actual Battlefield (back in '92).

Wonderful!

Welcome to you both.

I will add your names presently.

Oh, and Blackhorse, as my stories leading up to my own trip next year keep rolling out, I'd love to hear comments, suggestions, feedback, &c., particularly on the travel and "make sure to go here" side.

Here's a quick one for you. After departing Vierzehnheiligen, a small village complete with cannon-balls still stuck in buildings, we made our way to Hassenhausen, another small village also with cannonballs still embedded in walls. Upon arriving there, we noticed a substantial marker/monument. We pulled over onto he shoulder of the road, steps away from the western-most edge of the village. We then proceeded to walk the 100 or so meters to the south to the marker. We had taken probably no more that 10 or so steps, when my buddy says, "Hey what is this?" He then bent down and picked up a musketball...I kid you not (it was a freshly plowed field, mind you). It was a fantastic, and apparently not out of the ordinary find.

Wonderful!
