    Episode 27: Talents, Ruses, and Stratagems

    Every successful general in history knows the art of presentation. Your teammates look to you for not only a plan of battle, but also for their morale center and personal guidance.

For when the time comes, a cool head prevails in the thick of combat, and only one lucid in mind can think of the ideal plan required to win the day.

    Episode 26: Coup D'Oeil

    Episode 26: Coup D'Oeil

    Every precious second lost to deliberation in battle is a second too long. All warfare, whether in games or real life, depends on quick decisive action to carry the day. But when so much information is constantly flowing and changing all around the battlefield, how does a commander filter out the non-essential and focus on pursuing that which matters most? When so much is at stake and the blood-price is high, how does one quiet the noise of one's mind in order to know the correct course of action? To understand how we do this, we must understand the concept of Coup D'Oeil, or "a glance that takes in a comprehensive view". To master this concept, we must combine detailed knowledge of the country with the will to pursue the essential.

    Episode 25: Where The Heart Is

    Once again, we're talking about the most important aspect of actual warfare: logistics. Moving your army, keeping it supplied, and making sure it can use all advantages are just some of the challenges that Frederick addresses in his method. In this episode, we look at some of the ways you can do this correctly... and one way that it all went horribly wrong.

    Episode 24: A Clear Vision (Frederick)

    When it comes to planning a war, few have a more methodical approach than Frederick the Great. While none of us are invading Bohemia any time soon, his cool logic can be applied to a wide array of situations. With an eye for detail in our defensive and offensive planning, we can learn to anticipate any situation. With a mind for contingencies, we can make it so we are never caught off guard.

    Episode 22: Of Rath and Brotherhood

    The world of physical wargaming is vast, with many different ideas on self-improvement and community involvement. In this episode, we examine two groups that have a similar history and philosophy when it comes to development. Malark goes solo to look into what makes the Brotherhood of the Falcon and the realm of Rath function as well as they have for so long. With an emphasis on confraternity and equal effort, there are many positive lessons to learn from these closely entwined groups.
