However, I do think there’s a difference between a battle report written from the point-of-view of the player (with an emphasis on mechanics and game system), and written from the point-of-view of the alter ego, i.e. the commander on the field (with an emphasis on story and narrative). The first one I find rather boring, the 2nd one much more entertaining. But I do realize there is a continuous spectrum of possibilities rather than two extremes.

 

Lots of food for thought there.
