August Moves For Unkerlant (Big News)

August finds Unkerlant's warring factions making bold moves, possibly to secure lands before the kingdom's terrible winters.
Prince Ruprect reorganized his Borogravian forces, and spread out to capture Wissenburg in Sumpftlund, Ferlangen in Salacia,Klessen in Overholt, and Carroburg in the Principality of Hurn (no doubt for a liaison with his mistress).
In a audacious move, Duke Sigmund decided not to relieve his forces at the capital, Keonigstadt.
Instead, his remaining forces made a mad dash for Franistover's capital, finding it undefended. The Duke lost Keonigstadt, the garrison surrendered to Franistover forces, but hamstringed Prince Adalbert by cutting him off from his own lands.
As mentioned before, Franistoveran armies captured Unkerlant's capital, but lost their own.
Amidst all this marching about the kingdom, the Arch Duchy of Volborg has been remarkably sedentary. Possibly licking it's wounds from the battle of Vollenbeck? The Duchess's only move was to take the fortress town of Waldbruk in Durmwald.
With 2 months of campaigning left, one can only imagine what will happen next.

A fluid situation indeed. Duke Sigismund has certainly left himself in a sticky position.

We may get one last battle before winter sets in. Franistover has to try and retake their territorial capital.

For the campaign and battles, "Might and Reason". And can't recommend these rules enough. Works for any figure scale, has active Yahoo Group, fun easy, w/ a great feel for the period.
