I will use elephants, you may roll for that if we fight. If elephants are effective, I count 11 for Carthage and 12 for Rome, if not (rolling a 1) it will be 10 for Carthage and 13 for Rome I think?

I'll continue to send my log to you, not certain how it looks when you open it. Then one I am about to send is the complete log for all actions so far. I didn't have access to my original and there were only a few actions to record, so I just re-did it.
