@JamesycoIf you're interested, sure. That will make three players. If you post a bio I will start the role play with the three of you.
@Landain How interesting, I should give that a good look too. My interest for this time period lies primarily in the American Revolutionary War and American Civil War; Napoleon Bonaparte, Michel Ney, and Arthur Wellesley for Napoleonic Wars; and anything to do with Prussia.
@Landain Looks like you put a lot of work into that, I'm actually very impressed. I was only able to skim the regimental order and uniform section as I am on mobile, but would love to read it more thoroughly when I get to my desktop. Looks good, I will add you to the character list. I know I will receive a bio from one more player, and if you two are okay we can start.

I will tag @Dusty and @Espatier just in case they missed the first tag.
@Espatier Battlefield will be similar to Waterloo, with one minor difference. In other words, expect high ridges on either side, with a valley in the center.
The role play takes place in a setting modeled after 19th century Europe. Armies are primarily composed of musketeers and cavalry with artillery support, although each may be further divided into subcategories. I will try to detail some roles below but troop composition, equipment, and their purposes may be chosen at your discretion. You will command up to four regiments. Infantry regiments contain 3000 men, cavalry regiments contain 1500 men and horses, and artillery regiments contain 50 men with 5 cannons.

Line Infantry: Line infantry are the bread and butter of any nation's army. Typically armed with a musket and bayonet, these men fire in unison directly at a target. They are vulnerable to cavalry charges, especially when flanked. Although they can assume square formation to fend off cavalry it makes them vulnerable to artillery fire.
Skirmishers: Skirmishers are equipped with rifles that have superior range. Unfortunately they take longer to reload and as such they are not ideal for sustained combat. Skirmishers are used to harass the enemy, pick off important personnel, and screen the main force.
Cuirassiers: These heavy cavalry get their name from the cuirasses they wear. They are armed with swords which give them sustainability in a fight.
Lancers: Lancers wield polearms and are ideal for breaking enemy formations. Their weapons are unwieldy in close combat, however, and they are suitable in sustained combat.
Dragoons: Dragoons are mounted infantry. They generally ride into battle on horseback, then dismount to fight as line infantry, making them effective at reinforcing critical locations. Some are equipped with carbines and so can fire and reload from horseback.
Hussars: Hussars are light cavalrymen armed with sabers. They are very quick and ideal for chasing down routed enemies or overrunning artillery positions.
Artillery: Artillery is classified by the weight of the projectile they fire. Many fire 6lber, 12lber, or even 32 lber payloads. Any cannon which fires 12lber or below may be drawn by cavalry to quickly move around the field. Anything over 12lbers may not be moved once the battle has begun.

18th Valland Dragoons: When the Coalition Wars began the King of Valland handpicked some of the frontier's rowdiest hunters. These men were drawn together and currently make up the 18th Valland Dragoons. Equipped with muskets, these men ride into battle on horseback and dismount where the fighting is heaviest, reinforcing their allies and hitting the enemy with deadly accuracy. When Valland's army capitulated to the Emperor the 18th went to serve the Gauldic Empire, but their loyalties may yet lie with the Allies...
Battle of the Nations

Welcome to Battle of the Nations. This role play was inspired by the historical Battles of Leipzig and Waterloo. Although there are no fantastical elements the setting is in a fictional world. The antagonist, Francisco Marion, rose to prominence during the Gauldic Revolution, which ended when he proclaimed himself Emperor. The ambitious conqueror then launched preemptive invasions on his neighbors, who had defied his rebellion previously. Despite subduing his enemies and routing their armies in a series of several wars Francisco's own forces grow weary and he has temporarily retreated so his armies can recuperate. Blocking his path is a combined Allied army that seeks to finally break his victorious streak and bring his rule to an end. This will be the Battle of the Nations.

Each player will assume the role of a commander during the battle, and may bring up to four regiments from their respective nation. The role play will take place in two phases. You will be given information during the strategy phase and will use this to determine the layout of your forces. During the battle phase you will try to defeat Francisco Marion and the Imperial Army. The role play will end when the Emperor has been defeated.

Good idea, Dusty. Three volunteer is good enough, I will get to work on this today! You may go ahead and fill out your character sheets in preparation and tweak them as needed. I will update the troop numbers as best I can.


Edit: I have it at 3000 men infantry regiments, 1500 cavalry, and artillery at 50 men and 5 cannons. If anyone has better suggestions, let me know.

Espatier, you guys can designate some of your regiments as reserve in the strategy phase. Also, I had a hard time coming up with a name, but I chose Francisco because of France, and I like the name. And I chose Marion because it did make me think of the Swamp Fox!
@Dusty I would like at least four.

@gorgenmast@Espatier Since the banana republic role play didn't get enough interest, this is my second idea.
Unfortunately, this has not garnered enough interest @gorgenmast and @espatier . I will try again in the future :/
