As the ancient Prussian proverb has it:

Very well.

Corps lost: II GREN, III, VI, VIII, IX, II CAV
We will pay reparations in full in June if we are able.

Corps to be spared disbandment: III

#452

@Navaronegun Do I get to know the strength of disbanded corps?


#453

My mistake. Didn’t remember you lost a corps due to forage.


#454

You don’t remember the screams of dying men begging for food from behind Bologna’s walls? The sounds of bare feet on pavement because the shoe leather had been eaten? The wails of children with empty stomachs? The awful silence that followed? I can’t unhear them.


#455

Oh, well. Got one Grenadier and one cavalry. Good rolls :P


#456

This was the VII corps not the VIII. More to come soon.

The rules do not specify, nor does the pre-moderated list. Bearing in mind the spirit of Limited Intelligence in this moderated game, I hereby rule: No.

#459

Austria will roll for control of Hesse.


#460

Willing to lose more PP?


#461

Ah no. Austria is having issues coming to terms with its new status as a vassal state. Austria refuses the entreaties of Landgrave William.

EDIT: We have no further actions this political phase.


#462

The Sultan will not make a roll for Hesse.


#463

The Tsar stays away from any dice too.


#464

Austria is fickle: having received yet another missive from the Landgrave of Hesse-Kassel, we have decided to provide advice and support to the new Prince-Elector. We will roll for control of Hesse. Final answer.


#465

Prussia will not roll for Hesse


#466

Spain won’t roll for Hesse


#467

We Roll for No One
