ACW Campaign

This is the record of an ACW campaign consisting of an unholy grafting of the campaign system from Longstreet on to the Regimental Fire and Fury tactical rules set.

Yours truly (Arkiegamer/Tim) will be commanding the valiant forces of the Confederacy, who fight for the liberty to deny liberty to others and for states’ rights, as long as they’re not the rights of northern states who want to eliminate slavery from their territories. The Scarlet J will be taking the part of those down-in-the-dirt wormbelly bluecoat Yankees that some people call the “Union.” Ah declare.

    The idea of grafting Longstreet on to RF&F sounds interesting. Would you care to say a few words about it- what are you trying to achieve and how successful

      Hi Idler, we haven’t played this campaign in a very long time. We were just trying to morph the two together so we could have a bit of a narrative campaign stitching together our RF&F games. We pretty much just winged it, and there were a few bumps along the way, with things from Longstreet that don’t directly map to RF&F, but it worked fairly well.
