your idea of "equally good territories" and "3 drawn cards" was a very nice one and i agree totally..i am gonna put them in the mod list :-)
Great! I'm happy to help
the artillery LONGSHOT will attack the 2nd area(every area that is not linked to your current position(except sea connections)and will be an extra attack after each artillery unit's main attack...i am going to allow attack again only if the previous one is successful...
if LONGSHOT defeats enemy troops the territory remains empty until you move troops there and only if you cleared the way first..otherwise remains empty.
I'm not sure that I completely understand what you mean here. First, you have to conquer a territory normally. Then, once that's accomplished, you can fire a long shot at the next territory.
Did I get that right?
Like I said, your ideas are interesting. Please tell me how it worked if you playtest it
