Fall 1905, and congratulations to Giriom

Postby Pedros » 19 Feb 2012, 14:15

An astounding gain of 9 SCs for the loss of one brings Giriom's Mercia to a game-winning 20. Aided in the end by Northumbria falling on his sword, but nevertheless an excellently timed stab in the Spring.

AAR's are always interesting and useful, but especially so here - we are building up a good bank of Heptarchy games and full AARs will help to map out strategies, strengths and weaknesses. I would be particularly interested in how Cornubia and Mercia viewed Anglia at the start, and whether or not they considered an alliance in that direction - Anglia always seems to miss out.

Canadian Army wrote:In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

"What force or guile could not subdue,
Thro' many warlike ages,
Is wrought now by a coward few,
For hireling traitor's wages.
The English steel we could disdain,
Secure in valour's station;
But English gold has been our bane-
Such a parcel of rogues in a nation!"

Congatulations to Mercia. Well played sir.

Northumbria? For shame! For Shame.... :(

Wales, I'll see you in the AAR Grrr!

and I'll save the rest for the AAR too. ;)
