|[eia] error at the Battle of Munich|
Uh, guys. I just realized that last night we forgot we were fighting in a forest! That means the casualty level should have been reduced by 1, and the outflanking force should have had a -1 modifier. I'm not sure how we should handle this. On the one hand, I'm inclined to say that since all of us who were present forgot about it, we should just chalk it up to experience. On the other hand, keeping last night's result is somewhat unfair to Austria since things turned out so poorly for Everett. So here's a compromise that I'm willing to accept. As far as the first round of combat is concerned, it will be easy enough to figure out what the losses should have been, given our rolls (France rolled a modified 4, and Austria rolled a modified 3.) I rolled for Napoleon to arrive, so that should still stand. However, I did *not* roll for the outflanking force to arrive because I thought it would be automatic. Because of the forest, though, it should have been a roll of 5 or less. Since my next two rolls in the combat were 5 and 3, I would like to assume that my outflanking force would have arrived in the second round. So if you are willing to accept that my outflanking force arrived in the second round, I am willing to reroll the 2nd (and, if necessary, the 3rd) round of combat. Doing so will almost certainly result in much fewer casualties for Austria, so I think this is a very reasonable compromise. Let me know if you disagree.
