Victory at Polkfurt --

Early reports indicate that the noble forces of the Principality of Saxe-Bearstein, although outnumbered by the troops of the Duchy of the North, managed to defeat the Duchy's attempt to bring desperately needed supplies to their forces in Polkfurt.

Terms of the surrender are being negotiated even as we speak.

Details of the battle will undoubtedly soon become available through the auspices of the Duchy of Mieczyslaw, who had both reporters and some artists overlooking the conflict.

(I'm too tired to write much tonight . . . but the most noted unit of the conflict is the Edelbrau Dragoons. They not only received Battle Honors (as did the Karlsberg Jagers), but they are now lauded as Elite troops instead of just being Veterans.)

Thank you, Stokes. It was my first game as Saxe-Bearstein (even if I was using my GNW troops as stand-ins).

So I've begun with a victory. It was a very interesting game that had some very interesting emotional shifts.

More details later . . . but as a teaser, my only Elite unit was almost completely wiped out in the first encounter of the day.
