Time Frame...?

Hello everyone.

I know that many of us are working from a mid 1700's time frame, working towards various 7 years war games using tricorned troops.

I have also been working on a 1809 based campaign and thought it might be interesting to establish something of a 'talk shop' here at Österreich Über Alles, which could represent the Aulic Council. A body of Imperial nobles and notables that 'counceled' the Imperial Court on matters military...

If any might be interested, the first order of discussion would be set in 1806...just after the Emperor has signed the Treaty of Pressburg, making peace with Bony the Ogre.

Admiral Hopstadt retires to his estate in the Duchy of Beerstein

Admiral Graf Rupert von Hopstadt retires to his county estate in the Reich Duchy of Beerstein. F.M. Reich Duke Wilhelm was aware of the Admiral's naval action against the pirate and invested him into the Military Order of the Golden Crown, Beerstein's highest award for military prowess against the enemy. All of Beerstein wishes the Admiral well in his retirement and expects him to be active at court.

The investigation into the actions of the recently-launched Mediterranean squadron must be of great concern to the entire Imperial court.

Wagers may be placed at your local coffeehouse as to the ultimate outcome...
