WitPAE- Way of the Warrior: Reap(J) vs Dwesolick(A)

Hey guys,

I'm back, as you can see & it seems I've stumbled my way into another game. I had chatted with Duane aka “dwesolick” a couple of months back, he had just started his game & mine had yet to begin. It was left like that until he messaged me 5 days ago, apparently, he & I ended up in the same boat, his opponent had walked away as well.

So, we are both determined to finish the game & since both of us have only this one ongoing game, hopefully it will turn out better for both of us.

All questions & comments are of course welcome.

So here we go, we are playing Scenario 2. I’ve never tried it & decided to give it a shot.

This is the part that I never liked about this game. You play a few months and suddenly, your opponent goes dark. All the time invested, plans, operations.... everything is gone with the wind.

Good luck Reap with your new opponent!

Yeah, I remember you got caught in this situation a few times too. At least I only got to Dec 10/41, 2 days past my last AAR post. It's just that monster first turn, it's a killer to have to redo. :shock:

Thanks Jonesy. I held back for a bit just to see how things would go. They're going well, he's a chatty fellow, telling me about his life, his wife & everything in between. So it looks like this game has the potential to go the distance. That means I'll be posting much faster in the AAR of course.

Just to let you know, I followed the advice to leave Ichang, but as you can see in the "News" section I'm losing VP Points because he hasn't taken it yet. I'm ahead of the AAR at this point & figure I'm going to have to reoccupy it, or I'm going to lose my shirt.
