Stagonian Madness!

For some inexplicable reason the Stagonians have decided to move through Saxe-Bearstein and Linz in support of Altmoranian aggression!

The Stagonians even advanced from Linz to Wein itself!

Stagonian columns pressed eastwards into Austrian Imperial holdings ~ both were repulsed!

In a battle lasting some only 1 hour General Brown routed the hapless Stagonians, even sending out enough pursuit forces to complete the surrender of the entire force after they had suffered some 55% casualties.

In another battle, east of the Tipplebruder region, General Charles forced a retreat of the attacking Stagonian armies, this battle taking only 90 minutes to conclude. No follow up was conducted as the Altmoranians had been successful in thier investiture of Pilsner, the capitol of Saxe-Bearstein.

The situation in central Urope is bleak for the opponents of Altmoranian aggression.

The Bearstein forces are all but destroyed in their defense of the capitol, Pilsner. General Dawn has also withdrawn in the face of superior Altmoranian numbers, now forming into defenses in Burtz, capitol of Burtzenia.

Saxe-Bearstein Faces first Prussian Putch

The Almoranian Forces have advanced with a massive move into Saxe-Bearstein

Unable to hold them back in the mountain passes the Bearstein troops retreated with casualties.

They have been joined in Pilsner (capitol of Saxe-Bearstein) by Butrzenia forces in great numbers with Kannon from Wein. Rumor has it that the Great Field Marshelle Daun is present with these forces.

Certainly a titanic early fight is brewing in Bearstein!

The Seven Years Warz game in Cyberboard has been something of a progress that I have been working towards for some time.

Now I have many working parts and have some progress moving forward.

Look for further reports here and on Emperor vs. Elector...

The Hungarian Queen

A fantastic post about Maria Theresa can be found on The Mad Monarchist

Empress learns of the Blue Horde

Scene: Imperial Palace in Wein.

Empress Merrie Teaser is preparing to enter the Grand Ballroom where a majority of the court awaits her arrival.

A page quickly steps forward with a note on a silver platter, the note is somewhat crumpled and dirty on the gleaming silver surface. The platter is offered to the Empress who glances at it then at the young aide de Camp of her Field Marshal Dawna, she nods to the young man to open the note.

He quickly takes the scrap of paper and only part way through digesting the information reports to the Empress,

"Field Marshal Dawna reports that her spies near the borders of Altmorania, Stagonia and Saxe-Bearstein have seen columns of troops both entering and assembling in Saxe-Bearstein and along the border regions. The Marshal writes that she fully expects Saxe-Bearstein to be invaded by the time your Majesty receives this note. Without a doubt King Freddy has initiated a war posture and means to invest our northern borders."

All assembled are silent, the Empress speaks quietly.

"Thank you M. aide de Camp." she adjusts her dress to smooth out the front.

"I shall compose an appropriate response after having entertained our ministers and court this evening." She looks about her in the small hallway at the entrance doors to the hall.

"None of you are to speak of this news." She lets out a calm breath and takes in another calm breath. "You may announce us now."

Reich Duke Wilhelm appears at big battle in Southern Silesia

Reich Duke Wilhelm and his new drum wagon cheer on Austrian Allies.

Austrians crush the Prussian left wing.

Prussian right wing maneuvers to attack, but the Prussian's loss on the left wing make the effort irrelevant.

The Prussian surge in the center is repulsed by the Austrians.

The Prussian center struggles to regroup.

Prussian cavalry reserve moves to support the Prussian right wing, but the effort is too little to late.

Reich Duke Wilhelm watches as the Austrian center repulse the Prussians.

Despite heavy casualties, the Austrian right wing decides the battle. A complete rout of the Prussians. Thirteen Prussian units were utterly destroyed, but the Austrians were too weak to pursue. They were pleased to hold the field.
