Re: Stars Fell on Alabama - An America AAR

bump up some taxes. I forget the exact set but the one that hits the rich is useful. Discontent in that social class is not that much of a problem. Then tariffs and the tax on shipping. This will harm some of your international relations but that is not an immediate issue - just keep an eye on your ...

Re: Stars Fell on Alabama - An America AAR

Research is actually pretty much out of your hands. This is a far better modelling of the realities of the situation in the 19C than games like Victoria which have mechanisms akin to the 20C state directed research. So in the main it happens. In effect, you'll see messages about discovering the prin...

Death in the Forest

Death in the Forest The Anglo-French landings in the Crimea had caught the Russians off balance. Tactically, the initial battles had shown that the enemy had a key advantage. The new rifled musket used by the British was accurate at longer ranges than the Russian musket. The advantage was not absol...

Re: Stars Fell on Alabama - An America AAR

great stuff. Do agree with the 'write and post something so you are committed' mindset. It tends to get you over the biggest hurdle which is starting and then its interesting to see how things start to develop organically as the game and your posts interact. Its not from PoN but the original Victori...

Fall of Sevastopol

Fall of Sevastopol, 20 Sept 1853 Maron was convinced he was to die. He knew he had inconvenienced the Russians. And even in his dungeon, he could hear the sounds of artillery and musketry coming closer. He had heard his guards talking about the British invasion. How the covering Russian army had be...

Re: Help me out with the status of the game please

This is based on comments I saw from very early with PoN. The US expansion was well modelled and a few players got themselves into a mess by pushing too far too fast. In essence its the standard colonial game but in continental America. Even once you establish some control (military and colonial) yo...

I've never seen an American AAR - which is a pity as it'd be a very interesting perspective on how things work out.

Ah, another cliff hanger! It will be very interesting to learn more about the visitors from the future. Again, a nice merge between PON and the story.

Re: Simple question

well there are plenty of penalties for being inactive - but most affect movement and the related rules. As far as I know, the statement is correct. If an inactive general is attacked then they fight as normal. The cost of low strategic rating (or being unlucky otherwise) is you can get badly outmano...
