Strategic Primer: 2000-2001 Campaign Log: Part 3

Today I’m continuing the annotated log of the first campaign of Strategic Primer, which I continued last month.

Player Name strong>Date Unit Attempted Action Result of Action
Theodore Roosevelt 2/15/01 None None Currently producing Rabble, 2 turns remaining.
Arthur Wellesley 2/15/01 None None None. Currently producing Rabble, 2 turns remaining.
Rhiannon ferch Hyfedd 2/15/01 None None Was deposited in ocean and perished with all hands.

This odd notation comes from the fact that I generated positions based on one version of the map, then started running the game with another, and Rhiannon’s position happened to be over water. As Rhiannon was either an AI or a player who initially volunteered but never actually participated, I decided to just remove “her” to simplify the game.

Xenophon 2/15/01 Crossbow 1 Move from E side in large curve to S. Move correctly 1/2 hr S (7 mi), 1/2 hr W (7 mi). Bogged down. Bogged down. Bogged down. Bogged down.

As you can already see, Xenophon was one of the more imaginative players, here ordering a somewhat complicated exploration maneuver on the the first turn.

Robert E. Lee 2/15/01 None None None. Working on Rabble, done in 2 turns.
END OF 2/15/01

And that was the end of the first turn of the inaugural campaign of Strategic Primer, and so is a good place to break this annotated log, even though today’s installment has been rather short. We’ll resume next month.
