So, there goes a question of a situation that, although it may look unlikely, there is a chance it will happen in my campaign.
The rules say that the legion must have at least 15 between rookies and soldiers and 2 specialists.
The Marshall of my legion has been doing a considerable effort to plan the promotion path for each rookie, ensuring they show up and they get the skills necessary to promote quickly to specialists. As a result, the Legion has a healthy number of 5 specialists right now.
But right now they have 18 between rookies and soldiers, and they have 2 soldiers very close to promote.
This means that in the next mission phase, they could be in a position where two soldiers promote and, if 2 rookies die, that would mean the game is over. The result would be 14 rookies + soldiers and 7 specialists. It is a bit unbalanced, true, but it does not feel right.
Have you meet this situation before? How have you handled it?
Thanks for any insight!
