I think I've read this 3 times over the last month (or so it seems to have been floating around for that long). For some reason, I only just began to grasp how it works. I think that if you pay attention to the whole description, it starts to make sense by the end, but it isn't clear from the beginning that the "armies" you are talking about are actually other players under your command.
That said, I think this sounds like a GREAT idea. I'm totally down for this. Please count me in, and I hope that this manages to fill up, otherwise I'm going to be a bit upset.
