Was thinking that it would be fun for players to have a choice of being a historical general for the campaign
say for pretend our campaign has:
3 players for the French
3 players for the British
these players can have fun choice of saying who they want to be from that Faction
a French player might want to say he is playing the role of Davout or Murat...or Napoleon himself!!...remember some generals died in battle before some times in the campaign...but since our campaigns are fictional...I think some things can be bent...plus it would just be cool to say...yes im playing as the Duke of Wellington!! ;D

Hm, that is a f**king good idea. In fact, if we have some historical minded guys out there, maybe Generals could even bring a special something to the table; for example, the player who picks Ney might get one extra valour to spend on a cav unit of his choice, the player who picks Napoleon might get one extra valour to spend on his artillery pieces, and so on. Some generals could allow an extra light unit to be fielded (skirmishing is their specialty,) some could allow extra line units, some could allow more freedom with deployment and so on. This could really help personalize the commands a bit. We just have to make sure that both sides have basically balanced lists of Generals to pick from.
We would have to create a BUNCH of Generals that the enlisting players could choose from, first register, first get to pick. Each player WILL be required to field a General in this campaign, so maybe we could even tie THAT in; for example, if your General is killed or captured, you lose his special benefits until the beginning of the next week or something, when he recovers from his wounds or escapes or something.
Good idea; is there anyone out there who knows enough to make up a list of 10 or so French generals and 10 or so Russian and Austrian generals? If not, we can always make some up!

Remember, there has to be a Field Marshal for each side (to determine who gets what Weekend Rewards...) maybe the French one could get first dibs on Napoleon? My Russian history isnt good enough to let me think Russian tho!
