Battle #1:
Imperial Naval Descent at the mouth of the Bebara River.
Small numbers encamp along the coast on the south side of the river.
Natives react to throw the foe back into the sea before more arrive.

Battle #2:
Assuming the Imperials hold on, more forces come ashore.
The Army marches inland to capture Kharti.
The Bebara River remains navigable for Imperial gunboats.

Battle #3:
If the Imperials are successful, they march deeper inland to Omdurman.
Very large battle.
If Omdurman falls, the war ends.
If not, the Imperials retreat and evacuate the continent.

Caveat:
Depending on results, Battles 2 and 3 might need adjusting.

CLOSING REMARKS

(1) The above offers an outline for three future games.

(2) Sometime in the deep past, the concept of a three battle campaign arose. I can't remember who imagineered this. It might have been Donald Featherstone. Does anyone remember?
