A fatal alliance

St Petersburg, November 1856 As he felt himself moving closer to St Petersburg, Alexander relaxed. For many reasons, Moscow had such bad memories that he never felt at ease there. He was a man of the wider world – and to himself he chuckled, for none of those close to him realised how wide this con...

Re: Several questions

Hard to say. Things to look at - your population will buy so many common and food good types (you can see the limit in F4), but also demand variety, So you can't fill up all that local demand without a full range (the UK should be well placed for this but its still a problem). I'd suggest do the ext...

Re: How to Cancel Mobilization?

it happens I think in June and December if you are not at war, so its not automatic.

In a way its realistic, no conscript army just disappears on the day that a peace is agreed?

Kazan, September 1856

Kazan, September 1856 Katja shivered. Not just from the cold wind flowing across the steel grey Volga. Though she had reason to be cold. By late September, the chills of Siberia were already felt in this eastern town. No, some of it was her own mind. This town had long been a place of exile [1] and...

Re: Stars Fell on Alabama - An America AAR

can understand the time pressure. I find there are games where you can play for 30 mins/couple of turns then leave it and come back. But that doesn't work for me with PoN, not least as there is so much long term planning and its too easy to forget what you were trying to do. Hope the work stays (jus...

St Petersburg, March 1856 Prince Dimitry Petrovich Chepyzhin sat on one of the elegant chairs set to the side of his grand office.

Re: Ship names

Re: What is the best way to set up my brigades?

The advice about not forming Gds brigades is driven by knowledge of the combat engine. Part of this is it selects targets and sets up brigades (and loose battalions) for combat. The largest (in terms of combat power) is selected first so if your Gds brigade is in a standad corps it will be in combat...

Re: What is the best way to set up my brigades?

also a brigade of 4 elite formations will attract a lot of attention on the battlefield - the targetting algorithm tends to go for the strongest stack. So it'll win a lot but take heavy losses in very hard to replace units. Main issue - esp with the Austrians - is the light infantry. Convention (if ...
