So, the Quartermaster in my new game decided that one of their first Long Term Projects would be to add a seventh squad to the legion. I said it would be an eight clock to set up the infrastructure to support the squad and then separately recruit five new legionnaires.
The QM knocked it out of the park, getting a critical success and spending laborers, filling seven ticks of the eight tick clock.
Now I have to figure out what it will mean for the legion to have an extra squad. Feels a bit boring if the only answer is “you’ve got an extra squad staying at home each mission phase”. Maybe it means they have enough rookies to support sending squads on all three missions (I’m guessing their lack of extra specialists mean that those missions aren’t super-likely to be successful, though)
Has anyone else played games where extra squads came up?
