Civil War OnLine (CWOL) is a military, economic, and political simulation of the American Civil War with both wargaming and roleplaying aspects.
The software suite for CWOL is completing a multi-year re-engineering effort. The land warfare module was completed in 2010 and validated. The current version of CWOL features the land warfare component, Rolling of the Drums, railroad movement, and riverine operations. Work proceeds on the naval module in 2013 to be followed by the economic and foreign policy modules. There will be two iterations of CWOL in 2014. Once the initial game, a beta test of the new naval module, is coordinated then the URL for an enrollment web form will be posted to this page.
Individuals who are interested in participating in CWOL and have not attended the introductory training should proceed to this site to enroll in the CWOL Academy. Veterans from the SAS version of CWOL are encouraged to enroll in the CWOL Academy as well.
The Napoleonic Wars OnLine
NWOL 4 concluded in October 2013 after an extended game lasting from 2011. France was the winner among the Major powers, followed by Holland in the Minors category, and Sardinia in the Fragmented States. The next iteration of NWOL is scheduled for 2015. However, it is possible that there will be an interim "scenario game" offered before that date. Any change in the NWOL event schedule will be announced on this page and the Player's Guild web site.
