The battle lines are now fully engaged ... @Badger73 Romans are weathering the Furia Germanica ... the Barbarian right wing is in trouble... as is the Roman right (I think) ... center is one big, messy brawl...

Pretty even so far ... 17% of Barbarian army have routed, 16% of Romans...

I believe Roman Discipline will prevail!

The battle line is about to swing by 90 degrees... both right flanks in trouble... the Barbarian one has just about evaporated with one tough unit holding out at 3 to 1 odds ... one of the Roman legion cohorts isolated on Roman right ... both sides I think have lost one general apiece so far... a bloody affair.

The Battle end in a narrow Roman victory ... more than half of each army's forces have been destroyed or routed -- the Barbarian incursion into Pannonia has been beaten back.
Legionaries present their commander, Badgerius LXXIII with grisly trophies of their battlefield success -- no quarter was given.

@Rico - @enigma6584 is traveling for the holidays. He'll be back later in the week.
Let the Roman legions fortify their camps while they wait in place . . . :singer:
Cool -- thanks for the update. Everyone can polish their scutum and sharpen their pilum so long :D

Played out all the orders ... here's the result -- the action truly gets under way:



BLUE faction: build one new Legion in Britannia and Italia provinces.

RED faction: build one new Legion in Asia province and attacks into Pannonia from Macedonia.

GREEN faction: build one new Legion in Aegyptus and the Africa Legion crosses the Mare Occidentale and attacks Italia.


There are THREE battles to be fought:

1. GREEN vs BLUE in Italia

2. RED vs BLUE in Pannonia

3. GREEN vs North African Barbarians in Aegyptus.

Faction leaders please assign commanders for all the battles -- and I will brief on setting up battles later today, or once I have them.

Battle commanders assigned...

1. GREEN @mcmortison vs BLUE @Wellsonian in Italia

2. RED @Nelson1812 vs BLUE @Mad Mike in Pannonia

3. GREEN @Bootie vs North African Barbarians @Rico in Aegyptus.

I will set up the battle in Aegyptus and get in touch with @Bootie

BLUE players set up the PBEM Field of Glory II battles:

Go to MULTIPLAYER section --> MY CHALLENGES --> NEW CHALLENGE --> CREATE SKIRMISH -->

Suggested settings below -- medium battles and medium maps give most manageable battle sizes ... Mediterranean Agricultural usually will provide most sensible random maps.

Players can decide between them to change settings to Hilly, Wooded etc...

ALL units available in the Roman OOB can be selected for use.

If the random battle map is too weird and one-sided -- we can discuss a re-start.

MadMike men.. stared directly into our eyes... covering themselves in the traditional goat's fat.
Making themselves difficult to grapple with in a melee, their women were certainly brave for even
at this distance the smell was almost unbearable.

Despite fighting for the Blues, his men wore red... perhaps an Omen!

Here is a question....can you choose the color of your banners in FOG II?
