I also had a question about whether players can PM each other to make deals - the answer is Yes, Go for it.

What's a Citadel? It's mentioned in the rules just once, as generating +2 Gold.

An alert comes through your eyebooks. The Grand Marbit has decided that he being a sporting Marbit will reveal what special his heavy has! It has protect and he would be willing to send a heavy to a side for use in their army. The cost will be one gold every turn. There is some minor legal mumbo jumbo that will be taken care of when a side shows interest.

Spoiler: show
Just to be clear the Marbitopia will hopefully become a mercenary nation.

A Citadel is the name I give to having two fortifications in the one Territory.
The limit on Fortifications is usually one, but there is a Citadel card that allows a second fortification in the same Territory.
Just a fancy name for an extra big castle.

I just got a question on the Control Phase - this is just a note to me (and you, I suppose) to check if a territory has a unit in it to control it at the end of the turn.
BTW, a fortification counts as a unit for control purposes.
You only gain revenue from Territories you control at the start of the turn.

For those of us that are colorblind, can you make it easier to tell who's who on the map?

Uh, sure. I'm open to suggestions on how to assist in that area...

Maybe have a list of each side and the regions they control?

Good idea.

I'll try to make it more obvious who owns what.

Just waiting on two players to confirm orders.

27 hours until the turn ends.

Ok - end of turn 1. Reports are being sent as we speak... or type. Or sleep. Or whatever you are doing right now.

Turn One

Nurkth urwa "Wa'r"occupies Liana, and makes a long cross-country march to occupy Ursas.

Marbitopia occupies Hibern and Rauda

Clemsonopoly bides their time… thinking, ever thinking…

Snobshire occupies Woogate, Mera, and Ecin.

Randominstan plots a better world.

Volt remains vigilent…

96 hours to post orders. Seriously.

I just noticed an error in all the reports - please note that your Mancer unit should have the note "Hero" in its Attributes. They can be hired via the "Hero" card.
Also, I've edited one of the upgrades in the rules sections - Improved Harvest.

That edit was desperately needed. Good catch.

Ok, so the time allotted has expired, but I've had quite the day and am too tired to process tonight. A 14 hour extension is granted by default if anyone wishes to change anything.
