Glory!

Post by DCRBrown »

All,

I'm thinking of adding the Glory tasking to PC.

This would mean that the only way to attach a General to a unit for a Charge situation (and melee) is to use Glory.

Your thoughts would be appreciated.

Hi Dave,
I forget who it was but a British officer observed that "every ounce of authority that officers in the Confederate army possessed was purchased with their own blood".

Attaching an officer by using 'Glory' seems to me to be an excellent way of trying to replicate that.

At the moment you can attach a General but this is done at no cost to you as the omnipresent General of the army.
The life blood of command in Picketts Charge, the thing that keeps your army moving, the thing that gives you real command friction and the thing that sometimes means horrible trade off's, is the tasking system.
By adding 'Glory' you are now having to expend some of that precious blood on putting you Generals in harms way.

Would be great if you added Glory to PC, we like it in GdA we was thinking of doing it ourselves some how.

I like this idea and it makes sense to add it

After a successful glory tasking roll that general could move up to the next competence level as well.

If not in the game, certainly for the next battle of a campaign.

Would this be identical as the GLORY tasking in GdA?
I'm keen to know as I'm experimenting with this in my current game.
