The Great War

Post by cooke4444 on 2012-05-17, 13:30

As we're slowly coming closer to the 100th "anniversary" of The Great War, it's time to bring this to eRep.

One of the most cruel, meaningless and biggest wars in the history of mankind...

You will be an officer in the higher regions of one of the many fronts. YOU will have to make ambitious/devastating/glorious/... decisions in the war. The aim is to get promoted during war time.

You can choose your side and front. It doesn't really matter if you're on the "good" or the "bad" side, rewards are equal. (Btw, in my opinion, there weren't that much good sides in that war)

The mechanics are similar to "Pirates", so it is recommended to be online regularly.

These are the possibilities to choose from:


Western front



Yellow = Belgian army
Red = Great Britain (Choose between Belgian part and French part)
Blue = French (Choose between Verdun and Alsace)
Black = German/Prussian (Choose between Belgium, Somme, Verdun or Alsace)


Italian front



Blue = Italy (Choose Alps or Isonzo)
Red/Brown = Austria-Hungary (Choose Alps or Isonzo)


Eastern front



Black = German
Red/Brown = Austria/Hungary
Orange = Bulgarian
Grey = Russia (Choose German, Austrian or Bulgarian side)

As you can see, 19 people are allowed in. I hope we can reach this number Wink
I know not every front is in it (medditerranean, African,...), but 19 is more than enough Razz


More explanation on game mechanics will follow, just sign in NOW!

This game and the results is based on several (legit) books, scientific material,... Not everything will be the full truth, but that's impossible to do Razz


List of commanders:

Western front

Belgian army - Critically
British army (Belgium) - Boer Jan
British army (France) - MaryamQ
French army (Alsace) - Fhaemita Malodorous
French army (Verdun) - BrunoCND
German army (Somme) - Nohjis
German army (Belgium) - Sammy Tanghe
German army (Verdun) - AndreasC
German army (Alsace) - SX80

Italian front

Italian army (Isonzo) - Helviro
Italian army (Alps) - Viridi
Austrian army (Alps) - Theophyledepatryarkes
Austrian army (Isonzo) - Djony

Eastern front

Russian army (Roumania) - Facebookator
Russian army (Germany) - NLSP
Austrian army - Karakoran

Okay, signing in over.

So in short:

It will be a bit like "pirates", but more tactical.
You can get a situation similar like pirates, but you can also get the opportunity to create tactics (movement of forces, number of forces,...).

For this you'll get a picture of the battlefield where you can draw the direction on (basic knowledge of "paint" can be usefull, but that won't be a problem).

You will have to upload this to 'Imgur"
Just go to imgur.com and you'll find out yourself how to do it. Make sure you save your picture.

I will give a link to a google doc each time, where you can post the link.

Even more info & start later on, but it all depends on the impeachment stuff-thing-crap-s***

Okay, so the first tasks are for Sammy Tanghe, AndreasC and Nohjis.

You will see that the moments of tasks are split and some people will have more work than others. (= more chances of promotions)

So the first turn is for a part of the German army at the western front.
It's their task to plan their first attack.

They get a map. Use the Imgur-method to upload.
In the "spoilers", you see the map + supplies for you.
Everyone may watch the spoilers, it's just a way to make it a nicer lay-out.

I will always put a "hint for the task". This can help you in your work at that moment.

First hint:

"You're not on your own"


Tasks


Sammy Tanghe

Spoiler:


Supplies: 35,000 infantry / 100 artillery guns

use arrows, colours to show your movement

Nohjis

Spoiler:


Supplies: 110,000 infantry / 100 artillery guns / 1 "Big Bertha"

use arrows, colours to show your movement

AndreasC

Spoiler:


Supplies: 50, 000 infantry

use arrows, colours to show your movement

Upload your results in this gDoc:

https://docs.google.com/a/student.khleuven.be/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dGFmQThkaXpjWm5jNVY0WWxRdTQyN0E6MQ#gid=0

Put under "task": 1 Wink

Good luck to all!

Deadline is 27/05/2012 or earlier if you three finished it earlier...
