From JOHN 3/8/89:
Perhaps a textual record of the battle could be generated in addition to an animated set of maps. The computer could automatically generate a journal of a few terse sentences from day to day. You could then add to this journal as you saw fit.
  • Let player record personal memos (notes to himself about future production schedules, situation summaries between sessions, long range planning, etc.)
  • Notes could be time or event triggered.
