  1. Marche Consulaire: A Napoleonic Timeline
    Threadmarks: Chapter One

    Welcome, all. So, after five years and a ton of ideas taken up and discarded in my head, I've finally decided to get off my ass and put something down on paper for the first time.

That said, would it perhaps be easier for the Wiemar Republic...
