Blog Moving...

I have decided to move this campaign blog as well as any other activities involved with Modern era wargaming to my main blog here: Adventures with Gun, Sabre & Horse I do hope you will follow the my adventures there. The Armies here will have their own campaign page there soon and perhaps more activity in the future.  I will leave the blog up for as long as google will host it. Thank you for being my guest here for so many years and again please come over to my main blog for further adventures.

Sincerely,
A. Jeff Butler,

Top Prussian Ministers Discuss Leaving the Russian Alliance.

KOENIGSBERG, Prussia (AP):  An inside source has leaked that the Chancellor and her cabinet are holding high level meetings with the Council of Prussia about the future of the alliance with Russia. It appears that since the Russian invasion of Ukraine following the Crimean annexation. That some members at the top of government have become concerned. Although publicly Prussia has had no issue with the Crimean annexation it has not voiced support for the invasion of Eastern Ukraine.

Already in Karakistan PDF forces have begun the transfer of command of Camp Condor to the Russian Army. With most troops & equipment being flown home over the last few days under the pretense that conflict with Lithuania could be eminent as well as an uptempo in our advisory role with the Mafeking forces in southern Africa.

Rumor has it that since the introduction of the Prussian Mark (PM) and the establishment of German as an official language that many ministers are leaning closer to Germany. Especially since it was the Germans who provided top intel during the Polish-Prussian War of 2010.

Some ministerial aides have hinted of patriotic parades and other Pro-Prussian activities being planned around the country. Quickly followed by an announcement of the end of Russian as an official language. Others have mentioned that Prussia's lone oil rig in the Baltic Sea has been ordered to increase operational days from 15 per month to 20. The same has been applied to the refinery in Cranz.

An announcement is expected in the coming weeks as to what position the Chancellor's government will take. Certainly any step away from Russia possibly emboldens Poland to invade Prussia. However an independent and non-Russia aligned Prussia is a strength for the neighboring Baltic states. They don't want Russia back on both borders again.

Meanwhile in Washington DC some analysts at the CIA and NSA have speculated that Prussia has been developing an atomic weapon in secret despite guarantees from both Prussia and Russia to the contrary.

Patriotic Prussian emblems are popping up all over the tiny country.

Writer's Block

I have hit a snag on this campaign. I can see no further way forward at present. My imagination requires justification and at present that can't be had. It seems I've steered Prussia into a corner.   Any suggestions?

Ministers from the coastal areas are clamoring for 7 million marks for infrastructure projects that are seen as crucial in their areas. They have been pushing hard for the money the past 6 months.  Also speculation is brewing on whether the PDF commander Major General Paul von Lettow might retire and take up politics.
Some in the Chancellors bloc have suggested that a promotion might be in order to keep him content in the military and out of political life.
