Last month I presented on this board TMP link the ‘Emperor vs Elector' web campaign blog, and promised it would bring to Imagi-Nation rulers scattered over thousands of miles, far more than just the possibility to exchange jolly diplomatic missives.

Indeed, at this very moment, the armies of Frankzonia and Stagonia are converging toward the town of Offenbach, belonging to the Soweiter League . The original point is that the rulers of Frankzonia and the League live in Arkansas and Southern California respectively (and for various reasons never endvisaged to meet across the tabletop) while the ‘actual' battle is fought in British Columbia (where the Stagonian King lives in our Real World™) by a group of ‘neutral' wargamers acting as ‘proxies'.

Hopefully this example will be largely followed, allowing a totally new level of interplay between the 34 Lace Wars Imagi-Nation creators contributing to the ‘Emperor vs Elector' campaign.

BTW, with reference to my post on this board : Fictitious 18°C countries on the Web: an attempt of census

I have now on my blog link
45 links to blogs or sites devoted to fictitious Lace Wars Imagi-Nation(s), and 6 more are richely and regularly illustrated in the messages, Files and photos of the Old School Wargaming link
and SocDaisy link
Yahoo groups.

If you know of a currently active Lace Wars fictitious wargaming Country not repertoried on my listing, please carry forward the info!

An account of the battle (written by Michael Murdock) is currently available (with some pictures) on the "Emperor vs Elector" group blog:

Murdock has posted a much fuller account of this battle -- with excellent photographs -- on his blog:

Note that it is currently the second post down. Also, "clicking" on the photos will bring up a much larger copy of the photos.

Following this successful ‘premiere', another ‘battle by proxy' –this time a ‘neutral' solo wargamer controlling the forces from 7 other players scattered across whole North America– will take place near the town of Tippelbruder: link .
