Have plotted out the turn orders for January 1702 and there's room for me to include a piece written for the newspaper - just wondered what forum members would like to read?

Poll is open for 4 days

Any and all of the above! (Not much help, I know, but does show a keen interest.)

The Military Campaign's of Great Rozwi as its always fun to read about other players problems. Makes a change from reading about one's own!

At least the Rozwi only have to figure out how to get to target without getting eat, not getting ripped off by Dutch Merchants when they try and convert their loot and stopping the allies from eating all the POWs you want to sale.

They do not have to worry about keeping the shareholders happy, a hostile legal environment in some markets, barnacles on their bottom or being the target of black magic.

May your spears always be coated in the blood of your foes.

I tried to do a social calendar to plan out my posts in advance.

Turns out, I'm not a very good planner, and mostly didn't use it...

But if you're naturally organized, unlike me, it might be a good idea.

Er... Again?

Second thoughts, I'll just use them both in what I write.

So it'll be, the Military successes yet to come and The reason why gunpowder weapons are a poor substitute for a stabbing spear.

Best get writing!

Right, newspaper article has been written for next turn Game 10.

Six paragraphs longs, and saved on a separate .rtf file so Richard just has to copy and paste to use it (should he do so). Contents are about the coming military campaign and the Changamire's views on gunpowder weapons - plus the usual descriptions and added info concerning this and that.

If it gets published, I'll copy it out, here, and let everyone have the chance to read it.

Cheers,
Roy

For sake of completion, and aiding future readers, here is the result of the above poll - as shown in the Forum's Game 10 thread.

http://agema.darkbb.com/t690p600-game-10

Scroll down the page till you come upon the post "The Rozwi Indaba - The Voice of Africa". Post number 614

- some behind the scenes info: I wrote the 'On The March' and 'Binga' pieces (though Agema added in some NPC replies in the 'Binga' newspaper piece). The Capetown piece was a collaboration for the newspaper, by myself and the UDP player (JFlowers). The part mentioning the Dutch ambassador's arrival was just an information snippet placed in by Agema, for the aid of the Rozwi and UDP players.
