[glow=red,2,300] The Eastern Alliance[/glow]
A campaign for an Unlimited number of Players
France, The Confederation of the Rhine, and Saxony
The Russian Empire and The Austrian Empire
The European War of 1815 has raged across Western Europe. The pre-emptive invasion of France by England, Holland, and Prussia has left both sides weary and spent by war. And in the frozen wastes of Eastern Europe, a wolf stalks, sensing its weakened prey. In the late fall of 1816, the Russian and Austrian Empires form an alliance and strike at France’s weakened eastern border. Hundreds of thousands of Russian and Austrian troops pour from the snowy forests in an attempt to cut themselves a piece of France’s rich underbelly. Once again, the curtain of war falls over Europe.
How the Campaign Will Work
There will be two sides to this war. The first will be the French and their Allies, the Confederation of the Rhine and Saxony, which will both be represented by either their respective or nationally neutral troops. The second will be the Russians and the Austrians.
As many players as wish may register for the campaign. Please email us at GrenadierGuardsCampaigns@yahoo.com Each player will be given the rank of General. One General must be selected for each side at the start of the campaign to be prompted to Field Marshall for their respective side of the campaign. As of now, [GG]ThinRedLine and HG|Lord Uxbridge will serve as Field Marshals for their respective side. For details on what the Field Marshall’s responsibilities are, see below.
The campaign will operate as follows. It will begin with a 4 v 4 Weekend Game (referred to as a WG) on a Sunday approximately February 7 that represents the Siege of Bon Chance, the first battle of the war. This game will be played on the Map Contest winner’s map; there is still a VERY limited time to submit your entry into the Contest, so please do!
