How does terrain affect combat ?
Terraintype effects on combat are not revealed in the manual, nor is it shown in the combat screen modifiers/values even though it hugely affects the outcome of the battle. To get a clue lets take a look at the original boardgame modifiers, since there’s a high posibility that all these effects are implemented in the game in a very similar manner (if not identical even): Both sides: • Dammage inflicted is reduced (CRT -1) in Forrest, Desert & Marsh terrain (except for African & American natives) • Cavsupremacy (2:1 or more) increases the shockphase dammage you inflict (CRT +1). (not in forest or marsh terrain or after crossing water) • Cav Shock Strenght halved in Forrest, Marsh & Mountain terrain. • Arty Fire Strenght halved in Forrest & Marsh terrain. Attacker only: • Arty Fire Strenght halved in Mountain terrain.
