Message from Carthage:
I'll use this to activate Hasdrubal, who will march with all 6 CUs (subject to the caveat below)as follows:

- Laminium
- Segobriga
- Bibilis
- Iberus.

The caveat is this. As I read the rules, there doesn't seem to be much advantage in leaving a small garrison in a place like New Carthage. It doesn't make it any harder for you to initiate a siege, or to roll successfully on the Siege Table. It's only value is in connection with a relief attempt. Do I understand that correctly? If not, I may wish to reconsider.
55 1/18/2020 12:41:00 AM 217 BC Carthage Message I'm back! Trip was great, but very active and pretty exhausting -- we did 20 Maya sites in the end. Will get my next move out this weekend.

I suggest when you add CUs to a location that you indicate in the log how many are there after the addition. This will lessen the chance of errors.

46 12/27/2019 12:10:00 AM 217 BC Carthage Message I'll take the initiative. Just need a little time to cogitate now that I now my cards.

Thanks, Dave, I appreciate your outlook on this. I'm a federal prosecutor with the U.S. Department of Justice. A grand jury I've been working with concludes its term of service on 12/18, so I need to wrap up the investigations I have before that group by that date.
