Word has just reached the Duchy of Courland that Reich Duke Wilhelm von Beerstein has been recalled to Vienna for consultations with the Empress. As Feldmarshall-Leutnant Freiherr Bernard von Alderheim continues to assemble the Reichsarmeeabteilung Obere Sachsen, rumors abound that further reinforcements may be forthcoming from the Empire for the anticipated chastisement of Carpania for the unprovoked attack upon the Reich Duke's entourage this past spring.
Von Alderheim has not commented on these rumors, but he has directed his quartermaster general to prepare additional bivouac areas around the army's encampments.
In the meantime, Duke Pavlov (on left, above) has been increasing the food and ammunition supplies in the graineries and armouries on the capitol. His troops have been drilling on a daily basis and have been joined by the troops of the Duchy of Sachsen-Wachsenstein.
