1740 - GugenStadt in Danger ? (3rd Belgravian Wars) ...

[this is a preamble to a scenario for the next rules test, this time we hope to see how
attacking a defended town goes; more to follow ..]

Further extracts from the History of Wittenberg by Brother James of Alt-Wittendorf ...

GugenStadt - 1740

After the Monrovian forces which raided the magazine at Schwenk were intercepted at the Battle of Zorfburg, the Monrovian generals held a council of war.

With Wittenberg unable to take the field with its whole army until the supplies lost at the
magazine had been replaced, the Monrovians decided to strike again to interrupt the trade and
supply routes between Wittenberg and the Duchy of Fenwick.

Spies in Upper Belgravia had informed them that the town of GugenStadt, at the confluence of the rivers Oudear and Niebemindt, which controlled the river crossing on the border to Fenwick was lightly defended. The Monrovians decided to attack in force and take the town.

Unbeknown to Monrovians the King of Wittenberg concerned about his supply lines had re-inforced the garrisson at GugenStadt, sending some engineers as well to help build some sort of defences.

  1. I am very interested in rules for attacking a town. Please let us know your thoughts on what worked and what didn't seem right . . . and why.
