I just fought my first battle in the Total War game and it was more than I expected. I could feel the fear of defeat, the confusion of directing my men, and the satisfaction of winning. I am planning to include these elements in future battles in my fantasy series. I had an army of 861 strong while my opponent had me outnumbered by more than 400 men with a grand total of 1,281 strong. The battle was chaotic and it was hard to tell who was winning until it was over. Fortunately, I won the battle much to my surprise. I lost 656 of my men-at-arms while my foe lost 1,021. I had 205 men left while my adversary had 260. My total kills were 708 while my enemy had 579 kills. It was an engaging experience and was super fun for my first time. I will definitely play this more in order to get more of that thrill of battle. I will keep you updated on both my victories and my defeats.
