Godzilla {J: Andav} vs. Rodan {A: witpqs}

It sleeps.

The ground above is lazy and teeming. Teeming with the product of millions of years. Time. Ancient time. The land has forgotten. What came before is forgotten and will be new again. The land will learn. Everyone will learn.

The egg sleeps.

Great, yet another game to watch closely for insights. Good luck!
Does "filling with terrible resolve" come up somewhere when sleeping finally comes to an end?

Edit: strategic bombing looks a bit unorthodox though Ouch!

I have been waiting for this! I knew you would not resist the lure of another game

Looking forward to more evil planning. And to more details on rules and such

Great! Your great AAR was a "starting drugs" for me on this forum. Seems like the two of you aren't clean either and getting back on the good stuff.

Do you know if Andav is planning to do an AAR as well?

Also if I may make a request: In your last AAR, I thought you were better at condensing things in the beginning. I don't need screenshot of every theater every day and found the early style, where all theaters were described in short and a rotating screenshot more enjoyable. Of course if three theaters are on fire at the same time things are different. Just my opinion.

Really looking forward to this!

Yes! This game will have a slower pace. I know we didn't exactly race along like some players manage to do, but we got almost a turn a day in. This time will possibly be 2 or 3 turns a week as we both tend to the rest of life and keep play quality high.

Also if I may make a request: In your last AAR, I thought you were better at condensing things in the beginning. I don't need screenshot of every theater every day and found the early style, where all theaters were described in short and a rotating screenshot more enjoyable.

Got it! Always searching for the right balance.

Really looking forward to this!

King Kong?

The King Kong that was taken down by Biplanes?

That one?

Body slam? Looks more like cauterizing of hemorrhoids!

In the video, it looks like Godzilla hits the tower right in the ... where it hurts the most.

I am not liking the images above at all!

Looking forward to the new game. We both learned a ton in the last game and hopefully we will apply those lessons to the new game.

I am going to try to do a companion AAR. I have tried in the past but have not really had time. I think Intel Monkey will actually help with keeping an AAR since it allows you to easily look at the history of the game since it lets you filter on specific days and specific areas. I highly recommend giving it a spin. Like I said I plan to leverage it for the AAR.

Turn 1 should be delivered Monday night (Nov 20th). It is almost 6 years to the day since we started our first CG.

I will bow out now and work on my Deviousness ... See you all in about 6 years if things go like last time!

Communique received from the Emperor by way of Admiral Wa. The Empire desires peace!

Intel reports that a large transmission, in ten parts, is underway to the Empire's embassy in Washington. That must be the new treaty proposal. So Saturday night of December 6th can be spent relaxing and unwinding from the stress of the recent alerts.

I've done first turn air units (not in combat areas), turned off repairs of industries in China and a few others. Next up is base construction settings.

I'm saving orders in China for last as that will require the most thought. Last time I eventually lost virtually all of China but very early on I managed to catch some IJA units without enough friends and punish them badly. I have a feeling I won't be able to pull off similar maneuvers this time. They'll be expected. I'll be mulling over a China strategy while I grind through the bases.

This is awesome. I started reading your last AAR when I was first learning the game - picked it up just before you hit CRB. I'm looking for more of the same!

1941 December 07

Allies outside of China are at peace and are under restrictions on movement and other orders. Some additional restrictions have been self-imposed.

• Desired industry settings have been made. Basically repairs have been turned off for all industries in China and in some other bases/cities in the hot zone.

• Air groups out of turn 1 harms way have been given training orders and filled with pilots. China and Soviet Union ran out of pilots from their pools part way through that effort. Dutch had no pilots in the pool.

• Air groups in some out of harms way places were left on naval search but adjusted.

• Base construction settings have been made.

• Existing TFs have been given orders. None have been ordered to full speed. Merchants in or heading into hot zones were not altered.

• No submarine's orders changed.

• Lexington and Enterprise ordered to Canton Island.

• Force Z ordered to Batavia.

• CL Danae ordered to Palembang.

• UK, et al LCU at sea ordered to Colombo for reassignment. Singapore is already impregnable and needs no reinforcements. Burma is so close to India the Empire wouldn't dare.

• CA Exeter, CL Enterprise, CL Glasgow remain at Colombo.

• CA Houston and CL Boise ordered to Balikpapan. CL Marblehead + DD's orders to Balikpapan unchanged.

• CL Tromp orders to Soeranaja unchanged. CL DeRuyter + DD's orders to Soerabaja unchanged.

• CL Leander, CA Canberra, CL Perth ordered to Townsville.

• "USN transports" - CA Louisville, 1x AP, 1x XAP ordered to Canton Island.

• CL Adelaide remains at Port Moresby.

China

• 88th C Corps falling back on Wenchow but will likely be caught by superior enemy forces. All units at Pucheng moving to Wenchow. Several other units in the area moving to Wenchow.

• Some units falling back on Kukong.

• Units at Kanhsien will remain there until menaced, then withdraw to Kukong.

• Units at Wuchow moving to Kweilin.

• 2nd Prov C Corps (W Canton) moving to Nanning.

• 62nd C Corps (NW Canton) moving to Wuchow. Will withdraw when Wuchow credibly threatened.

• All bases in the mountains toward Burma fortifying.

• Many bases fortifying based on position, terrain, or need to delay enemy.

• Changsha area fortifying, but will be yielded earlier than last time to avoid losing viable force to defend in better terrain.

• Kweilin and Tuyun will be fortified. One unit is moving by rail from Tuyun to Kweilin because Keilin is weakly defended and vulnerable to paratroops.

• 28th, 39th, 38th New C Corps moving from Chungking to Tuyun (already preparing).

• The mountains leading to the northern (western IRL) desert are fortifying as are the bases in the desert.

• Enemy abandoning Ichang. We have units moving in to take it and fortify it. However those units across the river from Ichang are moving to defend Ankang and the forest leading to it. Undefended as it is now Ankang is vulnerable to paratroops.

• Sian is being fortified. Units on the road far E of Sian will pull back to defend in good terrain.

• Loyang and Chengchow will be held by the forces in place to allow other units to redeploy before being engaged.

• Chungking will stay at forts=6 to save supply; the rest of the Chungking basin is fortifying.

• Those units generally around Yenan (the ones not pulling back to defend Sian) are generally staying put to pose a time-consuming nuisance.

• Units out on the plains past Chengchow are variously moving or staying put to pose a nuisance.

• Current thinking is to get most of the Chinese Air Force bought out and moved to India before it gets ground down. Units which withdraw will require some consideration so we don't lose them if they reappear in a city which is in enemy hands at the time.

Looking forward to this one witpqs! Loved your "Rumble in the Southwest" AAR. I hope this game is as enjoyable and goes as long!

So what settings are you playing - PDU-Off or On?

Any significant house rules?
