|Bonaparte was not a well man in 1813|
Our Napoleon player, who has been doing Napoleonic games since the 1970's as was intrigued by the prospect of a intercontinental game, had been briefly hospitalized and was 'out of action' ~ while this made the communication gap with the Allied command easier to take time resolving, it did cause some concern ~ at least with the GM, where was our Napoleon player? Was he alright?
Eventually we did hear from the player, then all went quiet again, still no orders, though not an issue as the front line commands knew what to do from earlier directives, it would become an issue in a few game days.
Then again, news came:
My apologies for lack of input this last week. I unfortunately had a relapse and was taken back into hospital.I have been discharged, this morning, and my daughter has just brought me home. Although still feeling a little shaky I am positively loads better than this time last week.Xxxxxx, bless her, wouldn't bring my computer/iPad into the hospital insisting I get complete rest. So I have a stack of mails to read and am tackling the latest first. (maybe not the best way)I will get up to date with the progress of the campaign during today and get a set of orders etc off to you tonight/tomorrow amBest regards
Once again we had a Napoleon player and the status of the French command was set.
