ECW Campaign??

Post by Blathergut » Sun Oct 26, 2014 4:05 pm

Okay, I'll be the first to post in this extremely needed posting place. 8)

Would like to play through the ECW campaign as Parliament. Hopefully tosses 3 or 4 turns back and forth in the evenings (see my location). Any olde souls out there remember the Bubblettes and the palace pool in Alexandria?

I'm not up for a historical campaign based on the historical scenarios provided in Pike & Shot.

But I'd be game to play a series of skirmish pairings starting in 1642 through the end of the war. I'm happy to play Royalist. I'd prefer to start with small scenarios and "grow" to bigger ones latter in "our war".

The reason I don't want to play the historical scenarios is that I'd like to "save" them until I am a better player. All "battles" have a newness to them the first time they're played and I'd rather be more proficient in the game system when I play them the first time. I hate to play a nice battle as an idiot and then by the time I can play it well, the newness has worn off the scenario.

Let me know if you'd like to play a skirmish series...

Best regards,

John

The "campaign" idea you suggest, using escalating skirmishes at different dates, does seem like a good idea.

You could have escalating victory points attached to each battle, depending on in its size.

To have a simple campaign rule that gives a "narrative feeling" to skirmishes online i would suggest wo ways to portrait it:

1- start with a small/narrow open battle, the winner will then choose between a flank march or a reinforce (enemy) ... if the former winner will win again he will then choose attack skirmish ... if the attacker wins then campaign is closed with major victory. Anyway in the second battle (flank march or reinforce) the former loser wins then the next battle will be again an open battle ... and so on .... if you give a given number of battles (say 5) in a campaign you can even end it with a marginal victory (the winner will be the one most inside enemy territory, saying that open battle is a sort of "neutral" field)
You might increase size of battle each battle

2- start with a small/narrow battle and choose a campaign of 6 or 8 battles, skirmishes will be created once per player and every new skirmish will become bigger than the former, then apply points as follow: small 1 pt.; medium 2 pts.; large 3 pts; very large 4 pts. The campaign will end with a marginal victory at the end of the 6 or 8 battles with winner the player with most points...or the campaign will end with a total victory with a result of 6 to 0 (small, medium, large won ina row)

hope you like ideas :mrgreen:
