The road you can see on the picture is a private road for the steelworks next door, but the path along the waterside is a 'millennium path' or summet, and is very frequently used

A quick note to any players, or would be players


There are 3 side specific threads

German Garrison
French resistance
American Forces

All three threads have a short video outlining the game, ie: how the fighting has started (from the perspective of that team) the videos are all similar, but have some differences as to what happened and why.

everyone can see all three threads, we wont lock sides forums, any secret information will be passed to individual players/sides via pm


thanks , Porta :good:

You may have noticed that both the British and the US have had a mission near the same time.
Well it's a case of the British not wanting the US to know what they are up to 100% as it involves the capture of technology with the aid of the French Resistance.

The two SOE guys should take note of the dates of their drop :D

Maybe its just me but there looks like a potential for a Remagen type game here.

Ok British rail won't hire us the bridge for a day but it has a nice feel to the place for it.

I have been informed there will be some catering provided on site so bring some cash along.

Porta will also have a gas stove on site for you to do your own cooking :good:

Also parts of this site are dark like Drakelow tunnels so bring a torch, you have been warned.
I suspect the French have knocked out the power so the lighting is stuffed.

Can everyone attending please read the rules in the Le Chateau section.

We will cover them in the game briefing, but id like all players to know them before coming so the game flows smoothly.
