Playing Romans against 3 bots and I have a question on the quarters phase of winter. Are the various Gallic factions under any obligation to vacate an area they have no control over (once all is sorted and they end up occupying an enemy controlled area such as a lone Averni in a Roman space)? The rules indicate "May" for devastated areas but is it the same for undevastated areas?

Related: when an area is "no control" does everyone vacate (aside from a Roman piece per ally/fort/paid "rent"?)

Related 2: does anyone have a link to a video which goes through some of the finer points of the bots and the various "march to spread"/"march under threat" etc options? Love the game but going back to the rules, flowcharts and other charts during play makes it take a LONG time and kills the flow for me.

No. Quite the opposite: both the Arverni and the Belgae bots have explicit instructions to leave at least 1 Warband in each non-Devastated Region they currently occupy, even when they don't Control it.

I can't find any Falling Sky rule or bot instruction saying that. Can you give exact references?

Only if it is Devastated.

Looks like it is my fault for using the winter checklist and not reading all the explicit non player rules at the end of the rulebook. Now back to sort out the mistakes!

Thanks for the info

Question about relocation of the Gauls,6.3.2: May the scouted Warbands also move or do they have to stay put?

They may move.

(I'm curious, though: what made you think that being Scouted might prevent relocating during the Quarters Phase?)

Oerjan
