As part of the buildup towards the reintroduction of open warfare in
Avalon the three weekends leading up to February 1st will be used for
largescale test wars. The coming weekend - Saturday 17th/Sunday 18th - will
have two largescale battlefields starting at around 9pm by the
Avalon clock on both days. EVERYONE is welcome to be involved with city
or guild legions of their choice. The more the better. ALL losses will
be restored (be that legionnaires or equipment) so this is the perfect
riskfree way to get down and dirty with the new warfare system... to dispell
some of the mystery and gain invaluable battlefield experience. You'll soon
find it far less complex than anticipated - at least as far as leading
legions into battle and ensuring they fight to a reasonable level of
I envisage the first weekend testwars to be rather chaotic affairs but they'll
also be important testgrounds for the system as a whole - from our
perspective. Tweaks will doubtless result in algorithms, command syntaxes
may be evolved a little to make them more intuitive, etc. The deities
involved will be open to all suggestions.
Any questions, direct them primarily to Sebastian or myself. If you want
to be involved the ideal would be for you to register which legions you
will be personally leading/commanding.
