Examining the Archives

King Ludwig was going through some old records when he came across an account of a Stagonian raid into the Duchy of the North. (It should be noted that the king did not think of his nation as "vile" . . . one of the ways in which he is almost unique).

He carefully opened the report and began to read . . . .

. . . (Translation . . . we will be fighting a battle this coming Sunday using Clarence Harrison's "Victory Without Quarter" rules for the ECW. However, since I don't have any ECW figures, I will be using late Renaissance figures and we will place the battle in the early-mid 17th century. An account will follow next week.)

"No, my Love, my agents report that he dotes on that little snuff box. Further, that he insisted on holding it in his portrait so that it is quite visible . . . and we made sure that several
Zichenauers viewed the portrait."

"And now they are invading! How delightfully devious your are, my dear Duchess."

"Indeed, my sweet, and now this will facilitate your plans, won't it."

"Most vilely, Love. Most very vilely."

Oppertunity for Vileness Knocks

"The reports are confirmed, Your Majesty. Zichenauer is massing troops on the Stollenian border."

"Good, very good. And I presume that that fool, the
Grand Duke Irwin-Amadeus, will mass his entire army to face them."

"One would presume so, Sire."

"Indeed. Inform my generals that I wish to see them. There is an opportunity here for . . . . "

"For what, Your Majesty?"

"Why, vileness, sir. Vileness . . . what else?"
