This entries look abstract and sterile without any context. Names upon names and dates are not the type of data we like to smack our heads into so a background of why names perform action on certain moments is necessary. As this is a fun project that still requires time for various types of record keeping I tend to use all. From video, to blog and to a war diary in the old fashion way. It found it works for me.
To have a perspective why certain legions and detachments are moving to here and there it is important to also refer to These Accursed Solo Wars – counting days planning wars
I pass now to the chronological events which I will post in a “per month” format. The entries should include the day, weather and specific actions undertaken.
Colour coded entries in blue for Caerula Throni references and in red for Rubri Regnum. Neutral or Senate references have no distinct colour.
