Strategist's Sandbox

“That’s not going to work. My ogres will smash through that stake line too easily.” Rathgar pointed out.

“Dren it.” Nimble sighed and tapped his fingers on the edge of the table. Looking down upon the figures, he shifted some archers around the walls of the keep. “That should take care of them. Especially if I pre-soak that area with oil.”

“That’ll use up a lot of your supplies.” Rathgar warned.

“True, but I should have support arriving within the week.”

“Do you feel like you can count on it?”

Nimble paused before answering, trying to read his friend’s face. “Maybe. Maybe not. However, I don’t think I can hold that line otherwise.”

“Let’s find out...” Rathgar activated the table, and the battle played itself out.

Strategist's Sandbox

This magical table will create any battlefield and troops in miniature and allow generals (or would-be generals) to try play out different scenarios. The use of this item at least once a week will provide generals with a minor to moderate bonus to the resolution of any battle they find themselves leading.

  1. I can't help wandering if the gods sit around a marble table doing something just like this. Hmmm...
