Stollenian Scouts Report Enemy Activity. . .

Krankenstadt, Grand Duchy of Stollen  -- (16 February 1772) -- Stollenian cavalry scouts near the Blau Zwischen River have reported sightings of massed enemy formations just across the frontier in the Electorate of Zichenau.  It is widely believed the Zichenauers will attempt to force a river crossing over the toll bridge at Neu Sittangbad where there is a large supply and ammunition depot along with, apparently,  a chocolatier of some reknown, one Hans Pieter van Kaasenbrood.  Given Zichenau's various interests in Neu Sttangbad, General von Tschatschke has, accordingly, gathered his officers to discuss their immediate plans for action and examine all possible contingencies should they fail to staunch the tide of white- and red-coated Zichenauers.  With that very aim in mind, von Tschatschke has also ordered the construction of fieldworks just outside the main town gate, which also serves as Neu Sittangbad's jail, and along the north bank of Blau Zwischen near the town wharf.
