If I derived it correctly, military and stability are always "maintained", that is you can calculate them whenever you want from the board rather than memorizing anything that has modified them. However, today we encountered an event card that force one to lose 10 military(cross swords). I wonder how would you guys handle it? And what If you do not have enough military to lose?
Another question regarding revolt. If you are in -inf, how do you track your instability for -vp purpose after each age?
Thanks.

- The military loss is temporary, for the rest of the turn (I believe the 2nd event on the cards checks for military?).

- You only lose 1VP for being in revolt, plus 1 book for each point you're negative. If you're at -inf, just count up what the actual amount is.

I do not have the card with me. as far as I can remember, its a combo, but you lose military in first event. Glad its a temperary thing.

The -10 military lasts literally 2 seconds since it only affects the event card. A player cannot go below 0 military.

I have had players with less than -3 stability, and it is just a matter of counting. Note that you always only lose 1VP regardless of negative stability amount. Also note that it is every production and not just each age as you state.

No, I meant what I typed. The military track is a hard cap at either extreme unless the designer has contradicted the rulebook in the forum somewhere.

What are you responding to here? I think you might have misread Kingbird's last post.
