735 6/24/2019 12:04:00 PM 1809-1810 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #87: 4 / Corn Riots
A nation of your choice must Regroup Forces/Squadrons equal to a die roll. If unable to do so, it must instantly build enough to Regroup or Submit. Flags can be removed for compliance, but they must be markers - not inherent flags. A Neutral Proxy removes Flags, Units, Leaders, and Squadrons in that order. If needed, a Neutral Proxy uses randomly drawn cards from its hand to build Units and will then use its Resources and/or Reserve in that order if necessary.

Message from France:
save Prussia.
734 6/24/2019 12:04:00 PM 1809-1810 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #904: 5 / Napoleon
If Napoleon is present, you may commit the Imperial Guard after seeing all other battle dice. Roll four more battle dice. Besides inflicting hits, rally a disrupted French Unit for each "4" rolled by the extra dice. Only Napoleon's presence at some point during the battle is required, not his well-being. RESERVE

Message from France:
Gah!
Just wait 'til I get my hands on that lame devil...

Place four Units of a nationality of your choice in one friendly Home space of that nationality. If played by a Neutral Proxy, it must build in its Capital.

Message from Austria:
Darn those French and their obsession with that new fad, hand washing. I was sure the dysentery would cause more problems.

Speaking of dysentery, my son called us Friday night, begging us to pick him up early from Boy Scout camp. They normally break camp Saturday morning, but he wanted my wife to drive two hours one-way to pick him up early. It turns out, he was severely dehydrated. He was running a fever, muscle aches, all the usual symptoms. A trip to the urgent care Saturday morning, and when things didn't improve, he was admitted to the hospital Saturday evening. He has an underlying condition causing hemolytic anemia, and he was having a hemolytic crisis. He had to get a two-unit blood transfusion, and is still in the hospital. He still has watery bowels, and they honest-to-god wonder if he caught dysentery (among other things).

Anyway, I'll build 4 units in Moravia. No plus-play, Russia turn.
729 6/23/2019 8:59:00 PM 1809-1810 France Message Done.

After seeing all Battle dice, select any one leader (with the owner's consent) who has not already been eliminated by a 6 to roll two dice to alter the battle outcome thus: 6 - eliminated enemy Unit, 5 - disrupt enemy Unit, 4 - rally friendly Unit, 1 - eliminate that leader, Doubles - may also void Rout.

Message from Britain:
Of course he does! Otherwise, he’s dead anyhow!

It seems my Austria subjects are disloyal.
Dysentery attrition --- first 5 French, last 7 Prussian:
712 6/23/2019 8:30:00 AM 1809-1810 Austria Austria: Play Strategy card as Event #45: 4 / Dysentery
All Forces of one side in a battle space suffer Attrition before a declared battle. Any losses inflicted count as battle losses in the upcoming battle.

Message from Austria:
I would like to even the odds a little bit, and I feel bad that I've been subjugated and no help.

The French/Prussians are diseased! They should roll separately, because French attrition is different. I play this to give Russia a chance at a rout, since they count as battle losses.

Does this put me in the running for Parliament?

I know that you are allowed to mid-turn declaration of war against Austria for 7 CP's in order to retreat to Lublin, therefore I assume you also have the option to do the same thing in order to evade to Lublin right now.

No Power may join the Imperial Camp in the next Interphase. All Consuls on an Imperial nation's row of the Diplomatic Track not already in Pact status move one box to the left. If the Consul is in +1 status, it is also flipped to its normal side. Unlike other diplomatic events, this may be played during the first round of 1805.

Roll three dice. The Russian transfers a leader plus Units equal to the least of the three rolls to this Foreign War card. Another Unit draft is rolled and filled from the Turn's Reinforcements - or elsewhere - in each Interphase until the War ends. Void if Turkey is Client of Russian Camp.

Message from France:

Hmmm. On second thought, leave that 1 Dane in Linz.
Instead, d'Avout picks up 1 Spaniard from Barcelona (leaving 1 Spaniard), and goes to Madrid.
The adjustment to final disposition is:
Linz still 1 Dane (not 0).
Barcelona 1 Spaniard (not 2).
Madrid is d'Avout with 4 Spaniards.
Done.

Let's go on. I'm not changing camps and Britain can't.
653 6/19/2019 7:39:00 AM 1807-1808 Austria Message I really don’t want to be one of those “take my ball and go home” type people, so I keep hoping you can make an argument of how I can join a camp and make it work. Because when I look at the board, I see myself as a penny on a railroad track. If I had it all to do over again, I wouldn’t have moved the army to Tyrol, but other than that, I thought I did the best I could building units with the CP I had
652 6/19/2019 6:57:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message I don't mind if you guys want to debate a while longer. Seems like a pretty important decision.
651 6/19/2019 6:09:00 AM 1807-1808 Austria Message Britain and Russia: I understand why you want me to fight, because you want France distracted. I was hoping for some practical advice on how fighting this turn without committing suicide. I’m thinking long game, and building up for turn 4, maybe with Turkey. If I get Talleyrand or Dos, I’ll hurt France, but if finishing third (maybe) was my goal, I could do that in the Imperial team.

I honestly think joining a camp would be a bigger benefit to France at this point because they could steal all my keys without breaking a sweat.

Sorry guys, next turn.
650 6/18/2019 11:34:00 PM 1807-1808 Russia Message I absolutely agree that Austria has no chance of winning if she doesn't fight. But maybe she can accept coming in third rather than attempting to do more.

646 6/18/2019 5:10:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message Despite what I said last turn during the Interphase, Gareth has ruled that in Order Of Movement each nation does *all* of 14.1 CAMPS [i.e., we don't have everybody do 14.11 and then everybody to 14.12 ].

Therefore, Austria is up, to decide whether to join either Camp.
Then Russia, to decide whether to declare war on Turkey and/or Sweden, or to switch Camps.

643 6/18/2019 2:27:00 AM 1807-1808 Russia Message Russia will spend a card for War. If I'm reading it right, France will still have a chance if everybody spends in order.
642 6/17/2019 5:51:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message Britain will spend to liberate Europe from under the heel of the Usurper!!!
641 6/17/2019 5:37:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Building SQ in Copenhagen is now Refitting.
France has the roll.
If I recall correctly, I have a +1 for Talleyrand, so Peace on a 5 or higher.
Under Lannes' careful supervision, Austria is for the moment still learning how to sing La Marseillaise and eat buttered snails, and therefore cannot burn a card.
Russia has to decide first, but I will go ahead and announce that France is burning a card for peace, liberty, and equality (with France first, of course) throughout Europe.
Royalist toadies in Moscow and London could burn a card.
