EMR & SMOKEY SCENARIOS
“SIEGE OF LOUISVILLE”
August 9/10/11, 2019
1881: A generation after the South won the Civil War, America writhed once more in the bloody throes of battle. Furious over the annexation of key Mexican territory, the United States declared total war against the Confederate States of America in 1881.
But this was a new kind of war, fought in the Confederate city of Louisville, using modern weapons and tactics. As Confederate General Stonewall Jackson used the Confederate States Army to again demonstrat his military expertise, the North struggled to find a leader who could prove his equal for the United States Army. In the Second War Between the States, the times, the stakes, and the battle lines had changed–and so would history.
This 26 Hour Scenario will be produced by Brandon Decker of Smokey Scenarios.
After the Event Play is over for the day, ENJOY EMR’s OTHER AMENITIES such as Outdoor Volleyball, Horseshoes, Cornhole, Kan Jam, Bocce Balls, and the traditional Bon Fire by the Rec. Center.

MOBILE FIELD SURGEONS –
MFS’s are forward aid stations that both sides can establish to allow forward insertion for players not eliminated by a headshot or by an artillery barrage. The MFS will have a physical aid-station to set up that will be marked with a Red Cross and can only work if there is a Surgeon present. Aid stations CAN be over-run and captured by the enemy. Suergon’s will be Identified by white armband tape on both arms
Aid stations only operate for thirty minutes and must wait 30 minutes after use before they can be re-deployed. More than one can operate at the same time. They cannot operate within 200 feet of the enemy Command Post.
The greatest advancement in military technology is rifled breech-loading artillery. Both the Yankees and Rebels have stockpiled lots of it. Forward observers will be given smoke grenades that they can use to simulate an artillery strike.
The F.O. will alert a game ref before it is deployed. Anyone, friend or foe, caught inside the smoke cloud will be eliminated. The barrage lasts as long as the grenade does. The area the barrage covers is the same as the area of the smoke grenade. Players eliminated by this may not use the Mobile Field Surgeon.
Forward Observers will be identified by additional green tape on their left arm
Both Yankee and Confederate armies have access to Cavalry regiments. Cavalry is fast moving horse mounted soldiers that can exploit gaps in enemy lines allowing them to raid the enemy’s territory.
Up to 15 players at one time may, if designated as Cavalry, deploy at one of the special insertion points on field. A game official will escort them to this area and make them live. Cavalry raids can be used only once per hour.
Engineers are specially designated players that are able to repair destroyed structures and destroy them. They are the only players who will be able to use a TNT bundle and must have their Engineer card on hand.
Engineers must have their MOS card with them while on field. If a building is “destroyed” they can rebuild it by holding their hand to it for 5 continuous minutes. If the engineer removes their hand from the building during this time, the timer will re-set.
Engineers may also destroy structures and River MonitorsTNT bundles. The Engineer is the only one who can use the TNT bundle. They must alert a game official before using it.
Engineers will be identified by additional orange tape on their left arm.
RIVER MONITORS (TANKS) –
River monitors are heavily armed and armored gun boats that both the Yankees and Rebels have constructed. They are able to provide fire-support to the infantry. While confined to the rivers and canals, they can only be sunk by other River Monitors and TNT bundles. ALL MONITORS MUST PROVIDE PROOF OF LIABILITY INSURANCE COVERING THEMSELVES AND EMR and are required to provide their own Walking Ref to ensure Player Safety on the Field.
