So, you're writing, which means I ought to be reading. And commenting. You know the drill: I can't speak to anything happening in the game, but I'm happy to make all sorts of poorly phrased remarks about the different actors.
Oh, and let me tell you that I recently drove through Georgetown, SC, and it is the pits. An enormous paper mill and little else to recommend it (short of Highway 17 which leads out of town). Anybody from Georgetown present here? I apologize in advance.
Now to catch up on all the happenings since November...
Stuyvesant wrote:All I can say is: "Oof". That defeat at Boston was large. Yes, I hear what you say about the Americans' cohesion being wrecked, about setting up a defensive line around New York, but still, that was a large number of casualties.
Still, progress in restoring the rule of law in the South is good and you seem to have a decent handle on things in Pennsylvania. Upstate New York remains in flux and you have a lot of ground to cover in Virginia, but hey, overall things seem to be going well.

At what point do you think you will try to engage in a major battle with Washington? Or do you at all want to?
Stuyvesant wrote:That's a fairly complex plan with multiple moving parts you have going there near Albany. Combined with the melting Canadians, I'm sure there is absolutely nothing that could possibly go wrong here...
Washington and his mob of angry tea tossers looks intimidating. Hope you can hold him off - he's shown a willingness to fight in Boston, so I hope there won't be a repeat of that <ahem> unfortunate turn of events.
Segueing from that, via Grey and his shades... Who's the shady character sneaking behind Washington? More trouble on the way for you?
Field Marshal Hotzendorf wrote:I noticed that also, I wonder what the Americans are planning?

It seems you catched the embryo of the central Army under Greene. And look what happens if you dont have artyllery Mr. Greene.
Stuyvesant wrote:Interesting... You're pacifying the Deep South: perhaps the northern colonies will gain their independence, while the South maintains its ties to its sovereign? I know, beyond the scope of this game, but an interesting thought.
A shame about the denuding of Oswego. I hope you can restore the situation before your opponent takes advantage of it.

Historically speaking, Arnold certainly defected. I don't know if the game models it. I also don't know if the constant drubbings he's receiving at the hand of the German mob would make him more or less inclined to jump ship to the British.
