I posted a few cavalry reports. I failed to mark the dates of the reports. They each should be on or about the 21st of April. It should take a few days for these reports to reach Cornwell's HQs.

The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes. "

This is what I originally intended. You all have cavalry units. You can post similar items of note if you wish. i can help fill in those details about the Dervish you may not have. Unless, of course you want me to take over your cavalry units as well. Just tell me where they are posted and I will send you reports.

Crap. I had originally intended to have my post up today, Gunther. **** got in the way, though. I don't want to make another promise I might not be able to keep, but I'll try to get my post up as soon as possible.

The thing is... this RP is kind of uncharted waters for me. I'm used to having a character to Roleplay, but this campaign feels more like having a character to Roleplay, and also moving pieces around on a chessboard. I'm still figuring out how I'm going to play this, is all. :D

That is precisely what I am going for here. I would absolutely LOVE IT! If someone would run an RP like this one day, and I could play the part of the subordinate commander maneuvering my units around the battlefield. What era? Any! I prefer WWII, but would welcome modern, Civil War, Napoleonic, midievel or even Science Fiction. The closest i came to this was a 4-man special operations team sent into Shanghai, China in 2012 to release a friendly who was captured by some "bad guys". It was fun, but left me wanting more.

That's a legit idea Gunther. How about a sequel? :O

Like, several hundred years later in the same universe, turn of the industrial period of warfare, only without all the nasty trench attrition warfare and things like that. Make it more fluid while still keeping things fresh by adding new tech and toys for commanders to play around with as time goes on.

Also, I nearly have something presentable for a post.

Dadsky, if you would like to develop a Sci Fi "war game" type Role Play, I'm in!

Well. I'd better make this post before I put it off much longer. Any longer, and I risk not making it at all. I'm going to be withdrawing from the campaign. New as I am to the forum, I don't have a very good idea of how quickly the pace of an Alpha-level RP should be. Even then, however, it doesn't matter. I actually feel really bad about doing this, considering my first few posts on the forum.

Work has suddenly picked up quite a bit. In addition to that, the fall semester is fast approaching, which will add even more weight to my schedule. I simply don't have the time to handle so many responsibilities. I'm sorry. I know that, early on, you said that this RP was in the making for about two months. I hate to think that I might be the first crack in a crumbling wall.

Having said that, however... something about the previous 4 posts in this OOC thread has intrigued me. Specifically speaking, the part about "moving pieces around on a chessboard" in addition to having your standard RP fixtures and mores. I'm actually a fairly well seasoned web-developer and programmer, and having been so intrigued am interested in perhaps developing a platform that could do... well, just that.

But if something like that does happen, it will be much later. It would be completely disingenuous to back out for not having time, only to suddenly plunge headlong into a huge project such as that would certainly be. I'll continue to maintain my contact with the forum, albeit my participation has dropped pretty low.

That's to be expected, though. I want to maintain an active membership on this site. If that means reducing what active participation I already have down to an almost glacial pace, then so be it. When things calm down, I'll be able to come back, bigger, stronger than ever. :D

DruidPeter, Glacial is fine by me.

As far as "War gaming" an RP goes, it is more along the lines of stating what each of your units are doing rather than detailing how an individual is communicating with another individual. Less about character development and more about the movements and progress of military units. This would mean creating roads and town, otherwise not mentioned.

With that said, anyone who creates a town, I will post it on the map.
