Actually, it is possible, but it requires the players giving up
another treasured feature of the game, namely accelerated time.  If
a war could not be resolved in a few hours, but instead tak- es up
weeks to prepare, and several battles over the course of several
days to fight.

Yes - at last - You. I Choose you. Out of all the world,
out of all the seeking, I have found you, young sister of
my heart! You are mine and I am yours - and never again
will there be loneliness ...
