    Sorry to see this, Paul. Wishing Mary all the best.

    For C & W rolls the rules don't mention a modifier for crashing in enemy territory but there is this:

    "Crash landed in No Mans Land or Sea -1 ----Not the safest or smoothest place to land"

    We should also do a -1 for crashing in ET for the C&W, right?

    Thanks!

    Crashing behind enemy lines isn't any more risky as behind your own lines. Getting back to your home aerodrome is more difficult and the -1 is in the E&E roll for being behind enemy lines.

    Thanks, Peter! I had come to that same conclusion and deleted my post before I thought any eagle-eyed ninja such as yourself had seen it.

    Paul
    Paul I've also been absent due to a 2 month holiday in France with limited wifi and didn't pick up on this. I'm really sorry to hear about your Mary's illness and hope she's now safe and recovering. Like Dave and Pete I had to look up Guillian Barre syndrome which sounds pretty nasty with potentially a longish recovery time that's going to be stressfull for you both. Hope everything is now on an even keel and going well.
    Best wishes to you both.
    Take care.

    Hi Chaps
    Please accept my apologies for being AWOL I've been away and didn't get the internet I expected so haven't been able to keep up with things in the Campaign but we're home now so that should change as I slowly catch up.

    I'm up for the next scenario but due to a damaged wheel bearing we were delayed a few days getting it fixed and I'm a bit tight for time to post today.

    I played my trial game yesterday and it all worked as I hoped, well if having all one sides planes on fire at the same time is ok

    I just need to write it down in a coherent manner and draw a pretty map for you to follow. Fingers crossed it will be done in time to post this evening.
    Cheers

    Flying Officer Vagabond.

    We're nearly all behind with this month's mission, so you are good to go.
    Technically it only needs to be posted June 30/July 1.
    Good to see you back.

    Thanks guys for all the best wixhes for Mary.
    She can now feed herself a, but only finely cut up food or mashed veg. she is in a re education centre/hospital where they work on her motor skills to get her hopefully walking again. They estimate 3 to 6 months to get her able to walk independantly, but she contracted Covid while in the original hospital and that has left her tiring very easily. Sytill she has the best care possible and shes a tough , determined lady so we are working for the best possible outcome.

    That's good to know Paul, thanks for keeping us up to date. In a former life my wife was an OT and she knew all about Mary's illness and this sounds very positive news.

    All the best to you both.

    Thanks to you chaps for the welcome back.

    Eeeek! I have 9 on the table for this weekend. Looks like another big crunch time before moving on Sept 6th. I'll save packing my planes for last.

    Re the next campaign: I'm just pausing for breath & letting chaps catch up while I prepare rosters etc, I'm at Colours wargames show and on hols next month too, amongst other things, so probably after that we'll get started. I have a title in mind...
    but will consider suggestions

    Happy to go with whatever you feel is right. Does the next campaign follow on from the last i.e Jan - Mar 1917. Just checking on what planes I will need.

    We usually do but can skip a month or two, maybe start with bloody April & go from there if that's what people want to do.?

    That would work for me but happy to go along with what is best for everyone.

    If we ran it between Apr-Jun 1917, then that would see the SPAD XIII, Bristol Fighter and the SE5 being introduced over the campaign period for the entente and the Albatros D.V for the central powers. That might balance the forces better.

    Indeed, it would also mean any of the wounded will be available, having healed in the rest period.

    Personally, I'd prefer to do Jan - Mar 1917 as we tend to get approximately 3 months ahead of the planes that were historically available and that would allow me to use existing kit, but happy to go along with whatever decision.

  25. #275

    Could we do Jan 17 to Jun 17 with fortnightly periods rather than weekly, but happy with either.

    Those of you still playing catch up - can you try and get the last missions in as soon as you're able and before the last week of September please, I'm hoping to launch the next phase at the beginning of October so I'd like to clear the books before we start again.
    If you don't intend to play the rest of them out let me know via PM and I can tidy up your rosters and final tally.
    If there are any Eagle fliers who want a change of sides let me know that too, we are light on Bulldogs just now.
    Cheers Uncle

    Hope to have Mary out of hospital by October so chalk me up for the next series.
    If my roster is not complete let me know.
    Update on Mary is that she is learning to walk on a wheeled Zimmer frame. Can do a couple of meters independently and is on a normal diet.
    Hope to get her home for a weekend in the next few months.
    We both thank you all for your best wishes and thoughts.

    I plan on catching up. Plan to as much as I can. The whole looking for a house, showing our house to sell and then packing has taken over my life. 3 times I set up mission 9 and had to show the house the next morning so had to put it away. SWMBO must have it all looking perfect to show. My argument that it would add some interest to the otherwise 'magazine' look didn't go well. House is now sold on the 7th of Sept. We move into new place 28th Sept. Between now and then I should have enough opportunities to get in most of the remaining 4 missions I have to fly. (if I haven't packed away what I'll need!)

    Glad to hear Mary is on the mend, if slowly, Paul, I hope she can get home soon and a more normal life can eventually resume.
    I have you on the rosters for the next campaign, your current roster looks complete but PM me if you intend playing anymore missions before the cut off date as, if not, I will finalise the roster.

    As for the rest of you chaps I look forward to seeing what is produced in the next few weeks.

    Uncle is back in the Top Office - looking to wind up the BYM campaign now with a view to commencing the EYM campaign in the near(ish) future. Last submissions by end of month please, let me know by PM if you're done for this one & I will sort the rosters.
    I will carry everyone's rosters over to EYM but let me know if you want to change sides this time, or, drop out of OTT so I can get them straight & we can work up a rota for scenarios.
    It's been fun, thanks for participating & I hope you'll be able to continue the adventure.

    I have #11 on the table now, trying to finish both before Oct 1. My mom is very ill so I'm traveling to Illinois quite a bit these last couple three months, am heading up tomorrow evening until Tuesday.
    Looking forward to continuing the campaign; I'd prefer to remain Team Adler if possible unless the rosters are too far out of balance.

    I am happy to stay with the central powers. How easy would it be to switch my roster to Austro-Hungarians for the Italian front?

    Will you be selecting Austrian-Hungarian pilots ? I dare say it could be done but the opposition might be a bit sparse, name wise that is. .. it's also hard to translate some scenarios across from Western front. I'll look into it though..

    Oh, it's Edgy Young Men, by the way...!
    Still looking at the format but ground wise it doesn't appear much was going on in the first three months as both sides recovered from the Somme and Verdun I suppose.
    Leaning toward April - May - Jun, but may have a game for each month before that - this will make the campaign slightly longer but will provide some background to play against.

    Flash,

    I don't want to put you to any bother, I'll happily stick with my Adlers on the Western Front.

    2 things 1 Happy to stay as Entendre flight with added French pilots as needed.
    2 Mary has improved to the point where she can walk with sticks and a Zimmer so might be on day release next month , hopefully home for Christmas. So will be able to participate more fully in the next campaign.
