I've had a few people ask how I put together my game reports for The Tactical Painter blog, in particular how I keep the table so free of clutter and how I manage to record everything that happens. No special tricks I'm afraid, but I'm happy to share what I do. Decided it was easiest to put it into a blog post and you can find it here How I write my Game Reports

Many thanks for the interesting post. You write some of the most interesting battle reports, I really like what you are doing. Your reports really show, how the game was going.

In my own reports, I have also tried a more narrative, fictional approach. For example, I told the story of a little ancient campaign from the perspective of a theban citizen, who had to march the same route three times and than was standing on the battlefield and couldn't see everything, that was happening.

Your game reporst are always excellent, and a true inspiration. Thanks for sharing the practical tips (like the use of the note app word changer), that is very helpful.
