Recap: A British Indian Army force has been tasked (using the rules The Men Who Would be Kings) with capturing a railroad bridge in order to disrupt Imperial Russian supplies from reaching the Princely State of Chaimbellistan. Though superior in numbers, the British Indian force has sustained heavy casualties primarily due to a Russian Maxim machine gun and the marksmanship of the 21st Frontier Guard Company. Two British officers have been killed but the much reduced 19th Punjabis have chased the Russian Naval Brigade off the bridge. Three turns to go to decide victory and defeat.

So is this part of a campaign style gaming situation where the results effect what comes next? Whatever the case, good to see and enjoyed the ending, thank you.

Sorta. We are rolling for the scenario and then adding it to the narrative. The poor people of The Princely State of Chaimbellistan are still dealing with the death of their beloved Maharaja.

Outstanding, definitely a nail bitter. Those leadership qualities in TMWWBK are a real game changer. Adds extra excitement!

Character traits for leaders can add an extra (and frustrating) dimension to a game, as this shows, but that only adds to the challenge and excitement.
