1900: After-Action Reports & Animated Recaps
The 2018 Tournament Through Time: Round Three

Less than a week ago, the third round of the Tournament Through Time ended in a ranked draw after nine years of play. This is the thread where players, teammates, and observers can post their After Action Reports (AARs), where you can share your experiences of the game.

These AARs can be especially helpful to GMs, as each Play-by-Forum game is archived.

As this game was part of an ongoing tournament, you might not want to share too much information about your private conversations. However, if you have any stories to share from the game, or any feedback to provide, this is as good a place as any to post it.

Man, compared to the prior two rounds, the post-game chatter for _1900_ is just crickets.

WakaKafkaFlame Black Kettle [10:55]
(Excerpt from Death Comes for the Archbishop, Willa Cather, 1927)
>Now the Padre began to feel alarmed, to wish he had gone down that
>stairway with the others, while there was yet time. He wished
>he were anywhere in the world but on this rock. There was old
>Father Ramirez's donkey path; but if the Indians were watching one
>road, they would watch the other. The spot of black hair never
>stirred; and there were but those two ways down to the plain, only
>those. . . . Whichever way one turned, three hundred and fifty feet
>of naked cliff, without one tree or shrub a man could cling to.

>As the sun sank lower and lower, there began a deep, singing murmur
>of male voices from the pueblo below him, not a chant, but the
>rhythmical intonation of Indian oratory when a serious matter is
>under discussion. Frightful stories of the torture of the
>missionaries in the great rebellion of 1680 flashed into Friar
>Baltazar's mind; how one Franciscan had his eyes torn out, another
>had been burned, and the old Padre at Jamez had been stripped naked
>and driven on all fours about the plaza all night, with drunken
>Indians straddling his back, until he rolled over dead from
>exhaustion.

>Moonrise from the loggia was an impressive sight, even to this
>Brother who was not over-impressionable. But tonight he wished he
>could keep the moon from coming up through the floor of the
>desert,--the moon was the clock which began things in the pueblo.
>He watched with horror for that golden rim against the deep blue
>velvet of the night.

>The moon came, and at its coming the Ácoma people issued from their
>doors. A company of men walked silently across the rock to the
>cloister. They came up the ladder and appeared in the loggia. The
>Friar asked them gruffly what they wanted, but they made no reply.
>Not once speaking to him or to each other, they bound his feet
>together and tied his arms to his sides.

>The Ácoma people told afterwards that he did not supplicate or
>struggle; had he done so, they might have dealt more cruelly with
>him. But he knew his Indians, and that when once they had
>collectively made up their pueblo mind . . . Moreover, he was a
>proud old Spaniard, and had a certain fortitude lodged in his well-
>nourished body. He was accustomed to command, not to entreat, and
>he retained the respect of his Indian vassals to the end.

>They carried him down the ladder and through the cloister and
>across the rock to the most precipitous cliff--the one over which
>the Ácoma women flung broken pots and such refuse as the turkeys
>would not eat. There the people were assembled. They cut his
>bonds, and taking him by the hands and feet, swung him out over the
>rock-edge and back a few times. He was heavy, and perhaps they
>thought this dangerous sport. No sound but hissing breath came
>through his teeth. The four executioners took him up again from
>the brink where they had laid him, and, after a few feints, dropped
>him in mid-air.

>So did they rid their rock of their tyrant, whom on the whole they
>had liked very well. But everything has its day. The execution
>was not followed by any sacrilege to the church or defiling of holy
>vessels, but merely by a division of the Padre's stores and
>household goods. The women, indeed, took pleasure in watching the
>garden pine and waste away from thirst, and ventured into the
>cloisters to laugh and chatter at the whitening foliage of the
>peach trees, and the green grapes shrivelling on the vines.

@NoPunIn10Did GM Yeah, it's quiet. Not sure if it's due to this match in particular or the tournament overall being quieter than it was when it first launched. Perhaps both are a factor.

Either way, it was a great match with a lot of good people. Good game everyone.

This was fun.
Slack made it great, much more fun to chat live than send messages.

bigj0e03 Baratheon [18:11]
bla, i blew this game pretty annoyed about it

bigj0e03 Baratheon [18:13]

Nanook (Effusive Eccentric) [18:14]
Joe and cute are not words I’d associate with each other

LordDwia Konlugger [19:08]
wp everyone

ColonelApricot Despicable [21:10]
replied to a thread:
Using France as a lever was good play. But in the end you should have made sure he was dead instead of relying on us.

bigj0e03 Baratheon [21:23]
i just misread the board and thought i could get to 18 when I couldn't, I thought mid could not be taken when it actually could be taken due to my misreading of the board
dumb
