Re: Not god, nor tsar, nor hero...

Master Random , my oldest AGEOD forum friend, thank you for reading and for your kind comments. I, too, am saddened to leave the field of battle. No more huddling over maps with Commissar Trotsky at 2 am on a snowy winter's evening in the Kremlin, no more autum walks with Chairman Lenin as he tries...

Re: Not god, nor tsar, nor hero...

Comrade clandini5 , thank you for reading and commenting on this AAR. One of the main reasons I did this AAR was to show just what a fine game RUS is and to expose it to a wider audience, especially here in the United States where the Russian Civil War is not very well known at all. Thank you for y...

Comrade Nikel, thank you for your kind comments and for your strong support during the difficult (at least for me!) change-over to the new forum.

Re: Not god, nor tsar, nor hero...

Comrade ERISS, thank you for your continued patronage of this AAR, and for your many comments. As to whether I achieved victory or not, in simple terms I did not achieve the conditions required by the game by January of 1922. I was surprised to see the victory screen telling me I had won on points, ...

You should see the Cossack division in the Baltics! The Whites have obviously developed a teleportation device, just as the Reds now have a cloning facility (remember the duplicate KOMCOR Slabin from earlier).
