This page has been created as a place for contributors’ battle reports, including those that had previously been located on the Miscellaneous page. In an attempt to make the reports more accessible, they have been brought together here and have been reorganized by periods.
As with other pages on this web site, we’re always looking for new material. If you’ve written up one of your games and want to see it featured here, please send the material either through the Contact page directly to the blog, or to firstname.lastname@example.org. Maps and photos also will be enthusiastically received!
