Prussia up
174 10/8/2019 7:02:00 AM 1805-1806 Austria Message I slept overnight on it. I think it's best that nearly all of the Russians got lost. Sorry Kutuzov died, so I propose Konstantin/5 survived and retreat to Moravia. Bruce, you have 2CPs remaining. I can't make it up to you, because you lost the opportunity cost of "Russian Mobilization", but I'll send you a token. It'll be the best I can do.
173 10/7/2019 9:02:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message The text of "Lost Dispatch" says that it's the units/leaders of "their commander's" choice. Kutuzov was the commander. If Konstantin/5 got lost, and Kutuzov ran in with a bunch of Austrians.... that would explain why they got beat so badly. I'll accept that.
172 10/7/2019 8:58:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message Well, with perfect 20/20 hindsight, our excess commanders got lost, John, Ferd, Konstantin, and 3 units (2 Russian, 1 Austrian for a 50/50 split). Which would leave 2 Austrian units, 3 Russian units, and Kutuzov behind.

No matter what we left behind, they're dead. The one thing we know is Kutuzov had to make it to the battle, since he was the commander.

I don't know that that's fair to leave 3 Generals behind, because I don't know we would have done that (although, it does make logical sense to not risk the valuable guys that don't provide any extra battle dice). I'll defer to group consensus as to what is "right".
171 10/7/2019 4:59:00 PM 1805-1806 France Message Any thoughts on which units didn't make it in to the battle? I caused six deaths but I think only 5 participated. Who lost which units?
170 10/7/2019 3:01:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message Iíd also like to take the opportunity to apologize for failing in my ďspeed-bumpĒ duty.
169 10/7/2019 3:00:00 PM 1805-1806 Austria Message I canít change that result either. I currently have no pre- mid- or post- battle cards, so donít wait on me.

Void the Battle Rating of any Commander for the rest of this Impulse (including its effect on any just-rolled intercept or evasion attempt). Subordinate Army Commanders may not substitute their rating for the stricken leader. Not applicable to the Nelson event or to rerolls of battle dice.

155 10/7/2019 11:58:00 AM 1805-1806 France France: Play Strategy card as Event #104: 3 / Lost Dispatch
Roll a die. That many enemy Units/leaders of their Commander's choice do not appear in the first round of battle and are unaffected by losses therefrom. If the battle is lost, they must retreat with the survivors of the battle. If no Units/leaders remain to give battle, none is fought and they retreat. If a second round is fought, they participate normally.

Message from France:
Some of you don't arrive on time. You may roll. I may need the Guard later.

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.

134 10/4/2019 11:21:00 AM 1805-1806 Austria Message I learned, Pete, that patrolling works better if you donít do it at night. During a new moon. That is going though a lunar eclipse. On a cloudy night. That is dropping 6 inches of rain. Because itís been upgraded from a tropical storm to a hurricane. While looking through the big end of the telescope. Using the cataract covered eyeball. That is watering. Because it is covered in an eyepatch. Because it was just poked out.
