    *grin* This must be the cue for my seasonal advertisement for the BR War
    Machine rules cooked up by Solmyr, in one of whose non-Cerilian BR-rules
    PBEMs I much enjoyed playing (I was the court wizard of the realm ruler
    named under "special thanks"):

    I have some quibbles with the precise numbers, but the idea as a whole is
    very sound. Being a "hex grids, cardboard counters and odds tables"
    wargamer at heart, I would not myself use so abstract a system for a
    tabletop campaign, but those with less interest than I in the minutiae of
    military operations might find it a useful timesaver. For a large-scale
    PBEM, I think such a tool is indispensable.

    Nice to hear some more Birthright web programming is going on. I`m currently developing a PHP site which automates turn submission and administration stuff for DM. If you want to take a look at what is currently done I can enter a temporary account in the database so that you can log in.

    I plan to code a battle-resolution part of the site where players would play the battles online. If you wish to use something like that, we could join forces and do it together. I`m always open for cooperation if you are working in PHP with MySQL database.
