Hi Fogman -

If there's still room, I'd like to play and run the Seljuks.

Let's get things rolling, no point waiting for tomorrow when i'm free today.

iandavidsmith: fatimid (978-1071)
ulyssisgrunt: kommenans (1071-1099)
deeter: crusaders (1100-1200)
batesmotel: kommenans (1071-1099)
kmaher: syrians (1092-1120)
fogman: hamadan turks (1092-1099)
flatsix: fatimids (978-1071)
bagration1812: hamadan turks (1092-1099)

This is the setup:

Show your army: YES
Terrain density: VERY OPEN
Opponent army: FROM ANY BOOK
Fog of war: YES
Double moves: YES
Password Protected: YES
Password: (remember it is case sensitive)

WHEN YOU ACCEPT A CHALLENGE, REMEMBER TO ALSO CHECK 'VERY OPEN' TERRAIN
WHOEVER GAINS INITIATIVE HAS TO PICK A DESERT MAP, unless there are none offered (rare).

ROUND ONE

iandavidsmith will challenge: ulyssisgrunt, batesmotel, fogman, deeter
ulyssisgrunt will challenge: deeter, kmaher, flatsix
deeter will challenge: batesmotel, fogman, bagration, kmaher
batesmotel will challenge: kmaher, flatsix, ulyssisgrunt
kmaher will challenge: fogman, bagration, flatsix, iandavidsmith
fogman will challenge: bagration, batesmotel, ulyssisgrunt
flatsix will challenge: iandavidsmith, deeter, bagration, fogman
bagration will challenge: ulyssusgrunt, batesmotel, iandavidsmith

NO TAILORING OF ARMIES. You have to use the same order of battle for all your challenges. (the rule is 'traditional' to the series, not just made up, although i'd do that too!)

Remember to pick the right year for your army, and be mindful of the restrictions. Open a DAG hot seat game to check everything is correct.

GOOD LUCK everyone and keep it sane. You have 3 weeks to finish the first round.

All my esteemed opponents,

I'm a little busy the first part of this week...I'll catch up on answering and issuing challenges later this week.

I have started two games.

First Blood:

Egyptians (flatsix518) 24/36 vs. Byzantines (ulyssisgrunt) 37/34

I got some pretty good dirt on which to fight the K-Byz. Those superior drilled knights aren't so bad if some of your fights with them can be on steep cliffs. They really weren't much of a factor in the game. Our real battle was between my Mamluks and his Ghilmans and lancers.

Thanks for the game, Danny.

I was too aggresive; my usual fault. I took his camp and then assaulted troops on a steep hill with mounted!!!!

At times I think I'm the "John Bell Hood" of wargaming!
A great game.

Egyptians (flatsix518) 18/36 vs. Syrians (kmaher) 39/37

Again I got a field with quite a bit of steep cliff on it. It seems that very open battlefields these days aren't what they used to be.

This battle was actually pretty even up to about halfway. Then the Egyptians began to walk away with it...

I'm picking up my challenges over the next couple days. My wife is a teacher and this is the last week of school. A bit chaotic, but I'll be locked in by the weekend.

Cheers -

I wish her well!
