March of Konrad Korpus

The defeat of the advance forces at Wojslawice left Konrad with two options:

* - try the pass again with the main body, something that would see his forces badly outnumbered by Loyalist horse.

** - move around the flank of the Loyalist forces holding the pass at Wojslawice, retrace part of his march route and march on a different pass.

Konrad, set upon the flank march task, but left a 'covering' force to both mask his line of march and to ensure that the Loyalist horse could not easily pursue his moving force.

Cardinal Dobry had also managed to bring up more mercenary horse from the south...these troops joined the columns and now Konrad could field very nearly equal numbers of foot and horse that were present in the lowlands to the east of the Brass River Valley.

Konrad planned a fast move north this time from the mountains and this time the marshes would not interfere with the advance, since there were more high-roads in the region.

I take it that you're getting prepared to have another battle.

Sorry that I've not been up for much lately. They tried a different medication for my wife and she had a negative reaction to it (very low blood pressure and heart rate), leaving her dizzy most of the time and taking my attention away from gaming.

Sunday Pete is coming over to paint; and Brant to work on some scenery. You're welcome to come too if you're free. We'll start about 2pm.

Well that would be nice...not actually required, but nice.

I think Mary, the crew and I may be nearby on Sunday afternoon. We might stop by but I do not think we can stay long
