Message from Carthage:
I see my problem - Mago (I thought) was in New Carthage
but I guess he moved with Hannibal up to where he was
(or he remained in Saguntum where he stared)

As he does NOT have any troops if he was in Saguntum
I'll assume he had moved with Hannibal then yes
the modifiers would result in failure on a roll of 6.

BTW. the 1 CU would now have come from Hannibal NOT from Hasdrubal

Okay sailing roll
44 8/18/2020 9:41:00 PM 217 BC Rome Message No card but I count -4 modifier. I sent an email with how that was determined.

"Checking to confirm the naval modifier, Port departed is 0, Carales is -1, Rome Control in Carales is +1, Mago -1, General with 1 CU -1, two modifiers in play (Syracuse and Phillip Allies) for -2, net -4, so a 6 would mean return?"

43 8/18/2020 8:46:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Operations #43: 3 / Two Legions of Slaves Raised
(Rome) The Roman Player receives four CUs in Latium if it contains no Carthaginian CUs. May only be played if Carthage currently controls three or more provinces in Italy.

Message from Carthage:
Mago with 1 CU moves to Carales
with modifier of -6 it's an auto success unless
you have a arrest movement card.
42 8/18/2020 8:43:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Message SO, How did you put the extra modifier on Naval track ?
41 8/18/2020 12:08:00 PM 217 BC Rome Message Guess not, was rushing out the door to work this morning, and it's on my home computer now. We can pause, or if you want to press on, we can catch the map up this evening.
40 8/18/2020 11:42:00 AM 217 BC Carthage Message did you send a map?
39 8/18/2020 11:02:00 AM 217 BC Rome Message loses a CU, down to 9.

The module automates the marker on the Naval track, when Syracuse goes to Carthage the marker is placed and to place the Macedonian marker, the event card must be played. I did that in my save, so should be set now.

(Carthage) Play during any battle. You may use this card as a Double Envelopment BC which (if matched) does not automatically give the defender the initiative.

Message from Rome:
Varro takes 8 CU, picks up the single CUs in Lily and Agri. and ends in Syracuse with 10 CU and T Longus for siege.
36 8/18/2020 6:16:00 AM 217 BC Carthage Play Strategy card as Event #9: 3 / Philip Allies with Carthage
(Both) The Roman must randomly discard on Strategy Card. Carthage receives a -1 die roll modifier for Sea Movement. Once Macedonia is at war, this event becomes playable only by Rome and ends the Macedonian alliance.

Message from Carthage:
I can't get the marker on the board to stay on the
modifier down by the Naval roll chart.
