I've been doing some mental exercises for combat, and a question arose for me. How best to keep track of combat-related decisions, such as artillery forward or back, and tanks in Anti-Armour or Close Assault? Would it make sense to add a "combat status" column to the TOE sheets to note these? Or just use the notes field, or some other means? Seems to me that since we will not be face to face, a standard means of doing so would be beneficial vs. ad hoc. Thoughts?
I have given some vague thought to this Michael but considered that a suitable process will reveal itself of necessity as the time draws near. A less verbose language, we can cross that bridge when we come to it! It may well be worth formalising each combat by using a scratch spreadsheet. There is some possibility that combats either initially or later on could be rather interactive affairs, via online text or voice.
My main concern at the moment is the one that has been current for some time now: getting the damned thing started! Time pressures have increased as spring and summer activities present themselves. Additionally, there always seems to be one last thing to do (lately, the need to have markers for Cyberboard and rules appertaining to the mini supply dumps).
In the meantime, it's difficult to concentrate on finishing the Commonwealth set up, though I feel a July start is now on. : )
