Is it low brush, rough ground, or something else?
It's rough ground.
- The scenario states (p. 25) that "Rome takes the first turn with 2 command actions." Did PW eliminate "The stupid turn" (No movement, no command actions) at the beginning of the game, or is "the stupid turn" still around? In other words, do the Romans get to move on that first turn or does it start during their combat phase?
Heh. The "stupid turn" is still there, but if neither player has spellcasters or elite ranged units it's essentially a blank. Since no such units exist in either PW army, that turn doesn't really exist for them. To keep things simple, the scenarios treat the first "real" turn as the first turn.
