Remove pillage
59 5/20/2019 9:45:00 PM 1630-1631 Protestant Message Now that I'm back from vacation, I'm comfortable saying every other day on average. I do often have to work late nights and weekends, but the next couple of months doesn't look too bad at present.
58 5/20/2019 5:25:00 PM 1630-1631 Catholic Message Are you able to commit to a file a day or every other day?
57 5/15/2019 10:17:00 PM 1630-1631 Protestant Message That allows me to remove two levels of Pillage. So I'll remove 1 level from the P2 at Stettin and will remove the P1 from Stralsund.

You're up next. Rather than exchange move files, I suggest we just update our own game maps.

Message from Protestant:
The next phase is the Pillage Recovery Phase, wherein each player rolls a die to see how many pillage markers can be removed.


55 5/6/2019 5:00:00 PM 1630-1631 Protestant Message Kevin,

My apologies for taking so long to respond. I departed on a two-week vacation to Portugal on Saturday, 4\27, from which I will be returning on Saturday, 5\11. Things were crazy getting work squared away the last ten days or so before I left. I will get a move out on 5\12 once the Mothers´ Day observances are done!

54 4/23/2019 3:33:00 PM 1630-1631 Catholic Message I'll put Wallenstein in Vienna. I can do a file later if necessary.
53 4/22/2019 11:45:00 PM 1630-1631 Protestant Message That vconcludes the placing of the Pillage markers. I will send you a move file refelcting that.

We are now ready to begin the turn. Phase A is the Wallenstein phase. Will you choose to recall Wallenstein?

52 4/21/2019 6:57:00 PM 1630-1631 Catholic Message Stetting should be P2
51 4/21/2019 6:55:00 PM 1630-1631 Catholic Message Pillage Level 1 Stettin (Pomerania)
Pillage Level 1 Stralsund (Pomerania)
Pillage Level 1 Berlin (Brandenburg)
Pillage Level 1 Hanau (Hesse-K)
50 4/20/2019 11:02:00 AM 1630-1631 Protestant Message You're right that we probably should have played those cards as Events. We can do that going forward.

I'll place my next round of Pillage markers as follows:

P1 - Frankfurt (Brandenburg)
P1 - Bamberg (U.P.)
P1 - Budweis (Bohemia)
P1 - Pilsen (")
P1 - Jankow (")

Maybe these should be played as events so they don't come back?

Let's see if I can fill out my hand this time.
28 4/19/2019 11:44:00 PM 1630-1631 Protestant Discard Strategy card Message from Protestant:
One of the new cards I just drew is also on the "already played" list, so I'll discard it and replace it now.

27 4/19/2019 11:43:00 PM 1630-1631 Protestant Message Draw New Card # 3.
26 4/19/2019 11:42:00 PM 1630-1631 Protestant Draw Extra Strategy card Message from Protestant:
Draw New Card # 2.
25 4/19/2019 11:42:00 PM 1630-1631 Protestant Draw Extra Strategy card Message from Protestant:
Draw New Card # 1.
24 4/19/2019 11:42:00 PM 1630-1631 Protestant Message I've discarded 3 of the cards I previously drew as they had already been played as Events, per the Sceanrio rules. I will therefore draw three replacments.

You should also discard and replace any of yours listed in the scenario rules, i.e., everything numbered C13 or lower.

20 4/18/2019 5:39:00 PM 1630-1631 Catholic Message I place the Pillage markers anyway.
Pillage Level 1 in Demmin (Pomerania)
Pillage Level 1 in Havelberg (Brandenburg)
Pillage Level 1 in Cottbus (Brandenburg)
Pillage Level 1 in Fulda (Hesse-K)
Pillage Level 1 in Wetzlar (Hesse-K)

19 4/17/2019 5:20:00 PM 1630-1631 Catholic Message Scenario card says these are played too.
18 4/17/2019 5:05:00 PM 1630-1631 Catholic Message Some of the cards I drew are in the removed pile of the module. Should I discard these in ACTs?
17 4/17/2019 5:02:00 PM 1630-1631 Catholic Draw Strategy cards
16 4/16/2019 11:23:00 PM 1630-1631 Protestant Message So, I'll place 5 pillage markers initially, and then we'll alternate until we reach 20. We can exchange move files after each.

Lutzen - P1
Torgau - P1
Dresden - P1
Brunn - P1
Olmutz - P1

15 4/15/2019 11:23:00 PM 1630-1631 Catholic Message Sure, ok by me.
14 4/15/2019 10:47:00 PM 1630-1631 Protestant Message Can we just email files to each other directly? I find that's easier than Dropbox.
13 4/15/2019 10:55:00 AM 1630-1631 Catholic Message Yes I'm fine with optional rules, I'm fine with any rules actually. How are we sending files? Dropbox? I'm ready to go when you are.
12 4/14/2019 11:35:00 PM 1630-1631 Protestant Message If so, I will commence by placing an initial group of 5 pillage markers, as set forth in Post # 6 below.

11 4/14/2019 11:33:00 PM 1630-1631 Protestant Message So, are you OK with the proposed selection of optional rules?

And are we ready to commence?

Trying a die roll
9 4/8/2019 10:28:00 PM 1630-1631 Catholic Message Looks like maybe a typo in my email address. Testing a message
8 4/1/2019 10:13:00 PM 1630-1631 Protestant Message My apologies for the delay -- I had to be out of town last week, and I was juggling another deadline on a major project which is wrapping up.

Since this is your first game, I suggest we stick to the standard rules, rather than a variant like Laskas. I propose the following optional rules:

19.1 (Victory Determination)
19.2b (French Leader Guebriant)
19.3 (LOC established during Action Phase)
19.6 (Wallenstein's ambition)
19.9 (Old Corps French Infantry Regiments)
19.11 (Wallenstein's enemies)


7 3/24/2019 11:25:00 PM 1630-1631 Protestant Message As for Optional Rules, let me communicate with you about this tomorrow, and then I will send you the Vassal game file.

6 3/24/2019 11:25:00 PM 1630-1631 Protestant Message So, 20 markers. The rules envision each player alternately placing a marker up to that number. To speed this up, if you have no objection, I propose that I place 5 first; then you place 5; etc. Remember that you can place an additional P1 marker to upgrade a space to P2.

Message from Protestant:
We must roll a die to determine the number of Pillage Markers placed on the map:

Roll of 0-2: 16
Roll of 3-7: 20
Roll of 8-9: 24 markers

3 3/24/2019 11:10:00 PM 1630-1631 Protestant Message Based on the die roll, I will play the Protestants, and you will play the Catholics, Kevin. Probably better for someone who's new to the game.
