My campaign has finally made it to Fort Calisco and I have some problems understanding fully the special rules that apply here. Mostly the Special Mission. My questions are:
- No Horses. The mission requires horses, but they ran out (they pretty much ran out of everything). Does this mean that the campaign is over? I will certainly skip this requirement it that is the case, but, dunno, maybe somebody have a different take on this.
- The mission proposed there is a full mission phase, right? so the reward of -1 Time is just a way to compensate the fact that an extra phase with no secondary mission has been inserted as if it was an extra location.
- Fiction First: They have like 3 ticks left on the clock. Why would they break into Fort Calisco? Why not just find a route around it? That is what I think they would choose and forcing them to take a fictional decision feels anti-RPG.
Also, once they are insie the fort, why continue to Skydagger’s keep? If it is a good fortress, why not make a stand there? But ok, maybe it is not a great place and skydagger is better but, if that is the case, why not join forces and make everybody leave to Skydagger, thus largely enlarging the legion?
Any if they are going to leave and Fort Calisco is under siege… how come the Assets Rating is 2. I mean, they are under siege! who would trade goods for money in that situation?
I think I will give them the choice to break into the Fort or dodge it at a certain penalty, but I don’t know… what do you guys think?
