Ruttenhof under attack ....

The Begovian galley rounds the bend in the river, accompanied by two small corsair boats...
 the galley takes up position as the corsair boats head to the wharves to disembark...
 The bow guns on the galley open fire on the small shore battery ....
 the shore battery returns fire ....

 ---oXo---

Meanwhile, the Leopold had moved slowly downstream,  being careful not to get grounded as the river was low. As they cleared the shallower section,  two river marine row-boats caught them up... the sound of distant cannon fire could be heard in the distance ....

to be continued .....

Keeping track of things for the game ...

The movement of the Leopold and river marine row-boats down-stream is tracked on paper.....
 a play sheet to keep a record of casualties and damage ...
game rules are a mix of my own ship-to-ship skirmish game rules and some bits from some simple naval rules I had - we'll see how it goes
