Using the quick battle rules and the rest of the proposed supplemental system for RRtK campaigns, within 3 days, I was able to run four wars involving nine nations. The wars in the fall season had 3 battles, 3 siege turns and 2 sea battles.

The system in this one turn also demonstrated lots of strategic options for one side or the other:

– invading nations with allies

– splitting invading forces

– reinforcing besieged cities

– fortifying ports and adding garrisons to forts/castles

– blockading forts/castles

– defenders attempting to evade invaders

– invaders attempting to ambush defenders

– forcing armies to disintegrate under certain conditions

– providing conditions for a nation’s surrender

– rewarding allies

– providing outcomes for an abdicated leader

– providing  a safe haven for exiles

The use of these strategic choices follow strict rules in timing and order.

Play testing continues.
