Void a Maneuver, evasion or interception by any one Fleet or Grand Fleet (even after making/failing an evasion/interception dice roll). Any Maneuver used is expended and that Fleet must pay double for further Maneuvers in this Impulse. A voided evasion does not penalize that Fleet in battle for a failed evasion attempt.

1436 4/19/2017 12:49:00 AM 1811-1812 France Message already made a file for TU-SP-SW; will adjust BR losses if necessary/different than what I previously posted.

Does the flag get a roll on top of the forces in Galicia? Thought the flag is only rolled if it's the only occupant of a space. If Galicia's flag is also a die rolled, then the loss would be to another BR CU - the space is rolled for attrition, not units separate from the flag.

Message from France:
1419 4/17/2017 1:14:00 PM 1811-1812 Prussia Message I am happy to go in with one less die. Let's roll the battle.
1418 4/17/2017 11:18:00 AM 1811-1812 Russia Message Unless Prussia cancels his move, nothing has changed (except to benefit France) from the point France made his evasion/interception rolls.
So, if Prussia keeps his move, why should France re-roll?
1417 4/17/2017 11:14:00 AM 1811-1812 France Message Ferd cannot command/carry Russian troops. Only Russians can command Russians. Only pact allies' troops can be commanded by their major power.

With the latest information, Prussia now can move with Kut+6RU and F +3AU, or not move. With the changing information regarding who can or will go, I believe France should reroll any intercept/evasion, as now directly affects the decision to be made.
Would like Prussia to weigh in.
1416 4/17/2017 10:52:00 AM 1811-1812 France Message Obviously I greatly regret doing any rolls prior to full Coalition alignment - my attempt to keep us moving along has severely backfired; this wouldn't happen in a FTF game.
I didn't see the point of discussing further until Prussia weighs in, as its his move.
Unfortunately, the failed evasion likely impacts the decision, since Russia now won't move without Austria.
1415 4/17/2017 10:48:00 AM 1811-1812 Austria Message so this limits Prussian choices to:

Ferdie +3AU
Ferdie +3A1R

1414 4/17/2017 10:34:00 AM 1811-1812 Russia Message To simplify the issue:
Russia won't follow unless Austrian units are included in the Grand Army.
Also, Prussia is free to kill whomever he chooses if hits don't divide by three, but Russian units have to travel a much longer distance than Au and Pru ones to reach the front
1413 4/17/2017 10:24:00 AM 1811-1812 Austria Message guys

this is a good group and a good game
i dont want it to die because of some silly disagreement about record keeping mistakes

please, let Prussia tell us if by "Ferdie +4" he means:

Ferdie +3AU
Tomasov +4RU
Ferdie +3A1R

I will go with whatever he decides (as long as Russia agrees).

I see no reason to reroll Nappy evasion/Lannes intercept, but if France thinks he is entitled to reroll his evasion because of a 1 unit change in coalition force composition, I am happy to grant it to him.

Can we please proceed?

1412 4/17/2017 3:36:00 AM 1811-1812 Austria Message " Actually no MP can lead troops of another MP
So it's 18 vs 15"

austria is not a minor power
1411 4/16/2017 3:38:00 PM 1811-1812 Austria Message or does his mistake have to stand because you rolled dice mistakenly? :)

i dont really care, guys, please you three sort it out.
1410 4/16/2017 12:55:00 PM 1811-1812 Austria Message do you agree that Prussia called it wrong and ought to call it differently?
1409 4/16/2017 12:48:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message As Prussia is using all CPs of the card, he will have to plus play in order to flag Zurich. Otherwise Austria would be next in order of movement to get the flag.
1408 4/16/2017 12:45:00 PM 1811-1812 Austria Message however, as AU will not get a flag in Zurich, Au does not care and lets France and Prussia and Russia duke it out on the rules.
1407 4/16/2017 12:44:00 PM 1811-1812 Austria Message France

i see this differently.

Prussia declared "Ferdie +4" which is impossible

So Prussia has to restate either "Ferdie +3" or "Tomasov +4".

If prussia wants Ferdie to participate, then he has to call "Ferdie +3" in which case Ferdie will fight.
1406 4/16/2017 12:36:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message Austria should declare his intention to allow PR to command his forces or not. If you are going to defer again to the coalition after all this, then I really don't get why this started.

If Austria decides not to allow, then we are backed up to the point where PR moves from Wurtemburg.

If Austria agrees to PR command, then would be 18 v 15 based on current state.
1405 4/16/2017 12:26:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message Regarding Russia's last comment - dice were rolled, but the troop count was incorrect and Austria does have the right to decide on it's own whether to commit forces. I was incorrect in too quickly assuming Austria would automatically go along. But especially since it's Austria's units that were incorrect, he should be given the opportunity to confirm.
1404 4/16/2017 12:21:00 PM 1811-1812 Austria Message france
no harm intended and no d taken
ferdie is rearing to fight but happy to defer to her allies to determine whether he fights or r and rs and tomasov takex his place
1403 4/16/2017 12:12:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message France previously intercepted into Zurich with Nap w/7FR & 1SP. 1FR and 1SP were already removed for losses. And yes, a failed evasion would void the terrain bonus.

Regarding Austria, this would probably be the first time this game that Austria did not directly differ to Russia's lead, which is why I went forward with my roll once Russia committed (as Russia appeared annoyed that I even bothered to ask). In this case that appears to be an incorrect assumption, and we can back up to the decision of whether Ferd w/3AU participate - I was not attempting to disallow you your choice, just to move the game along. The incorrect number of CU's was not identified at the time of the move, and if you choose not to move the Austrians, then perhaps Russia would prefer the other Russians to move under Prussian command. Regardless, I will do my best to ensure proper alignment prior to progressing. Apologies.
1402 4/16/2017 5:02:00 AM 1811-1812 Britain Message france won the battle at zurich with austria so nappy with lannes and massena is there.the map is wrong.so france has 15 dice (lost the pass because tried to retreat)and coalition 18;2france has to remove 2 units from previous battle;
1401 4/16/2017 4:55:00 AM 1811-1812 Austria Message good point about the dice,
it has to be ferdie +3 then, i suppose

perhaps in the future France should not be so eager to roll her dice but rather wait until all members of the projected attack force have expressed their consent to participate in battle

its holidays, not everyone can be constantly available for response and comment
1400 4/16/2017 4:51:00 AM 1811-1812 Russia Message perhaps it was "to" Baden
as for changing the coalition force: dice have been rolled, so no move changes
1399 4/16/2017 4:47:00 AM 1811-1812 Austria Message Following last battle, Nappy was left in control of the field in Zurich (not Baden).
1398 4/16/2017 4:41:00 AM 1811-1812 Britain Message sorry guys i do not understand prussia attacks to zurich.why nappy roll to retreat from baden;
1397 4/16/2017 4:36:00 AM 1811-1812 Austria Message Unless Bulow picks up Kyoot and Tomasov and lets Ferdie rest then. Austria leaves this decision up to Ru/Pru.

1394 4/15/2017 5:06:00 PM 1811-1812 France Message Just checking map to confirm dispositions - AU took a loss in the last battle, so only 3AU possible being commanded by Ferd.

So would be 17 vs 16
1393 4/15/2017 4:28:00 PM 1811-1812 Prussia Message Agreed and yes, there are 4 cus
1392 4/15/2017 3:35:00 PM 1811-1812 Austria Message austria will participate if she is not obliged to take the odd loss. is bulow ok with that?

also, i dont have the map here - as austria suffered the odd casualty in the first battle of zurich, does the austrian commander have 4au to command?
1391 4/15/2017 9:53:00 AM 1811-1812 Prussia Message No cc
1390 4/15/2017 9:44:00 AM 1811-1812 France Message The pause for commitment was to ensure all the allies were agreeable to PR leading their armies, as cooperation tends to break down once the Coalition gains the upper hand. Of course I assumed AU goes with RU, so all there.

PR 18 vs FR 16; any CC?

The loser of any battle suffers Attrition to all surviving (including disrupted) Units/leaders prior to any rout resolution. Any Attrition losses suffered inflicted are assessed first to non-disrupted Units/leaders and contribute to possible rout conditions. This event can be voided by play of the Rally or Rear Guard events prior to the Attrition roll.

Message from Prussia:
1-2 Bulow +4 to Wurtenburg

3-5 Bulow +4 Kut +6 and Ferd +4 to Zurich

This is contingent on Austria and Russia Joining in.

Looks like we would have 18 to up to 16 for France. Agree?
