Submitting Your Scenario

If you have a write-up of a special DBA scenario (with or without battle report) that you'd like to submit to the DBA Resource Page, just drop it in an e-mail to Chris Brantley at IamFanaticus@gmail.com. In addition to a description of the forces, any special deployment or variant rules, and a map, I welcome battle reports and your comments on tactical lessons learned and rules critiques. Don't forget to name the battle and identify the year in which it was fought (even if fictional or speculative).

Here is a Battle Template that you can download for use; just make sure to open and edit the file in a Courier or other non-proportional type font. Don't feel constrained by the template if you'd like to add or delete sections such as battle reports, lessons learned, etc.
