Legion of Honour Saturday 7th April   Leave a comment

Bruce set up Legion of Honour.  We started as Major’s at the beginning of Napoleon’s wars in earnest.  Phil’s Major literally fell from his horse and then was decimated along with his unit in the first battle.  Mike’s Major proved to be adept at smuggling and sword-fencing and was soon amassing both money and Glory.  He had a talent for sending Darryl on secret missions earning the name Le Weasel.  He almost died in one battle but was rescued by Phil at the last minute.

Bruce lost his money to partisans but otherwise went from strength to strength.  This was despite being wounded by Mike in a duel.   Alex proved adept at catching the pox and the ladies notice and was soon married and also amassed great wealth which he tried to hide from his new wife.  He lost a duel to a Burgher though!  Both Phil and Alex married at the Warsaw Christmas Camp.

By game end everyone except Phil had reached one rank higher to at least Colonel I believe and Alex had an important Office and was promoted to a junior General level.  However three of our heroes have been sent to Spain and fear for the future unless they can transfer to less deadly theatres of war.
