Good news for everyone who has been clamoring for the Carnage and Glory Campaign system to compliment the wildly popular tactical systems…it's here…well, at least in theory.

I am going to run a Napoleonic mini campaign at Historicon, 2014 in July. The overall purpose of the exercise will be to test out the beta version of the campaign system and also generate some interesting tabletop games where decisions made in one game will affect the course of the campaign and the next game. The campaign will take place in August, 1813 as the Armistice expires and will feature French against Russians, Austrians and Prussians.

I'm hoping to generate at least 4 tabletop games over the course of the weekend. The games will not be huge since I'll be using my 40mm Napoleonics. There will be three main French players, a CiC and two divisional commanders. For the Allies there will be an overall CiC and one commander for each nationality.

I'll be working with the main commanders before the convention to run the first couple of turns and have the first battle ready to go on Thursday of the convention. From there it's anybody's guess where it goes. The four games will be listed in the PEL so non campaign players can sign up.

I'll provide updates over the next month or two.

Now that it is very interesting. Good luck with the testing and I look forward to the production version.

This event is listed in the Historicon PEL.

Registration for the convention is now open.

Hope to see you there.

When it comes out do you intend on the game being compatible with C&G on the table top only or will we be able to use other game to use with the campaign.
