The extra point only applies for the next game, so if you win game 2, the extra point is available only for game 3.

If you win game 3, then the extra point is available for game 4, and so on.

Carl,

I will be out of town for work on 3 June, and have a makeup game for Pikeman's Lament on 10 June. Could we play ours on 17 June?

Carl Fisher

I assume 17th is Pikemans Lament (3rd Monday), but I am free on both 17th and 24th if it is not.

Grahame

17th is indeed PL

Ah, well in that case, I will also be gone for work on the 24th. We'll have to figure something out.

Unfortunately I am not. The next date after the 17th I'll be available would be July 1st, which I believe would be the next Saga date. I suppose if there are no other options before the July battle I'll have to take a forfeit. I apologize for all the trouble, but I've just had a whole bunch of work-related travel piled on in a short period of time this next month.

OK, looks like we both have to miss this month.

I am sure we can sort something later.

Jomsvikings can always crash someone else's battle! We could try the Battle Royale?

See attached for the scenario.

Additional rules:

The river rules vary from the Book of Battles.

The River does not block line of sight.
The river does not give any cover.
The river is between S and M wide.
It is never possible to cross the river in a single action.
The river reduces ALL movement to S, there are no exceptions.
All units gain a single fatigue when they end a move in the river, again with no exceptions.
Unlike normal dangerous terrain, Mounted units do not gain a second fatigue (as horses find crossing rivers less difficult!).

Let me know if there are further questions or queries.

File now added, thanks Mike.

I take it mounted still gain 2 fatigue if they charge a unit in the river?

Welsh should be able to use children of the land because they don't have to stop and take their boots off?????

All units will gain a fatigue if their move ends in the river, including charging, so the fatigue is applied BEFORE the melee. No additional fatigue is applied after the melee because of the river, just the normal post melee one fatigue each.

Sorry restrictions include children of the land, fording waist high water will slow anyone. It is not the same as knowing your way through woods or scrub.

Also any abilities , that could inflict a shooting attacks, such as Sons of Dana, do not apply, you can't hide a few skirmishers in a river!

Following on Mike's announcement, I propose we skip July, so Game 4 will be played on August 5.

Shawn, can we play our Game 3 before then? I am sure we can manage a table in July. If possible July 1.

I will release the known results from last night later today.

As we have a pause, I will hold back announcing details of Game 4 until nearer the time!
