Quote from: cmnash on 19 February 2015, 02:58:11 PMQ1In the turn sequence step 1.1, initiative is determined by rolling your commander's command dieIn step 1.2, command points are determined by rolling the commander's command dieShould this be the same roll? i.e. what is rolled in step 1.1 is used for step 1.2 ? how do you (the author I mean) play it?Q2Looking at the terrain choice list, I was surprised that there is not an 'open ground' choice available. Was this a deliberate omission?
Quote from: Chieftain on 19 February 2015, 03:07:27 PMHi cmnash and welcome!Q1 - They are spearate dice rolls.Q2 - There is no 'open ground' choice. Open ground is default. Unlike other rules (DBx, FoG, etc.) you can't 'reserve' an area of open ground. This was a deliberate choice, as many of the armies have specific terrain interactions that players can exploit. You as an opponent will have to figure out how to deal with these! It was felt that simply allowing you to deny areas for your opponent to place their terrain wasn't the right way to do it.

QuoteAnd on my point about base sizes, I've just seen the sabots in the warband bases range - great idea!Cheers, Colin
Quote from: Chieftain on 19 February 2015, 03:24:12 PMYes.Initiative determines if you go first or second during each phase. There are specific advantages and disadvantages to both positions, which should become clear during play.CPs determine your command capacity to influence the battle for the turn, including enhancing your initiative advantages and reducing your opponent's advantages.Combining them into a single roll would magnify either of these advantages or disadvantages. Splitting the roll potentially avoids that.
