Art de la Guerre (ADLG) Resources

As always use these resources at your own risk as there may be an error or two I've missed. Please leave any feedback, suggestions or corrections in the comments.

1. Process sheets
I intended these to be short term playing aids to hasten the day when I could play with just the standard QRS.  There is a a sheet on how to start a game and sheets that tabulate the factors for each of the four major processes in ADLG. 
Throughout I attempted to combine the main tables and all the special cases adding page references where appropriate.

2. Unit cards
These slice the rules in a different way to the process sheets.  Instead of a full set of tables covering one process and all unit types, a card focuses on one unit type across all processes.
Each line on the card (almost) represents a different phase with shooting in the middle and combat at the bottom. They focus on the really important things and do not cover every exception. 

3. Diagrams
A series of simple drawings, charts and flow diagrams illustrating key features of the rules:

4. Miscellaneous
Other useful documents and posts:
