RE: [eia] [escrow] Political Phase, September 1805


I appologize for listing "Coalition" instead of the countries.  I see your
point as why they should be listed and I will do that from now on.

No, we don't allow them to add that in.

I will reiterate that I would prefer to see Spain list the nations it
combines with rather than use coalition as that name has no meaning in the
game rules. As one of the parties not privy to the internal relations of
the coalition, you guys could add someone in or kick someone out and I
wouldn't be able to tell from just that term that its meaning had changed.

Otherwise, since everyone involved is combined with Spain, all the land
movements will occur at the Spanish place in the movement order.  As there
is combined movement, we will go through the long chain of rules to 'make
combined movement clear'.  The first one is that the combined powers must
choose an order of movement or dice off if no consensus can be reached.  I
would say that as there are two groups linked by Spain, Spain would get to
choose which group it will move with, or roll randomly if undecided, and
then the two groups would dice off to see who goes first since they aren't
linked into a single combined movement group and therefore are not in
consensus with each other.  Group one follows all the combined movement
steps and resolves its battles and then group two follows the steps and
resolves theirs.
