file up. Note the naming convention I used. I tend to keep a written log on here for my movements in case something gets screwy with the file (not everyone I've played on here does though).

When you post an offensive, the defender will roll for intel or play a card. After posting his reaction, the defender generally rolls the battles, and resolves his PBM, of course he is welcome to ask for loss decisions first from the other side if it would alter his decision.

Good luck!
