307 5/5/2018 5:41:00 AM Summer 1863 Union Message I actually didn't change anything. The confusion probably arises because in most of the previous turns, there has been no need to randomize Union generals because there was only one to place, or if there were two, one was cavalry.

The last time I had multiple regular generals to place was Summer 1861, and you randomized all of them (effectively revealing both sides simultaneously). I was somewhat surprised you didn't do it this time, too.

As for the 20-sided die, that's just the number of possible combinations for assigning five generals to three locations in the allocations I specified.
306 5/5/2018 2:24:00 AM Summer 1863 Confederate Message Can you explain why you decided to change general placements for this turn vs. previous turns and explain your random determination methodology. I don't understand the 20 sided die roll.
