Interesting question. If there were not to many battle to do then I would
quickly run through each one using BR rules, but in a chat based enviroment
that would be impossible.
The only solution I could think of would be to design a system to carry out
a battle in just a few easy moves. Here a possible idea.
Add up all attack, defense values of the units involved, give each one so
many hp, ie Knights = 4, Cav =2, Arc=2, Inf=2, Lev=1 that sort of thing.
Then fight the war normally, except every point of damage takes one off the
total of the army, with a D result counting for 2 points of damage. As one
side takes damage then you would have to reduce its attack and defence as
units die.
Well something like that anyway, I'm just making this up as I go along.
