Just (another) quick clarification, lets see if you guys can beat ten minutes this time.

cool

For some reason whan I first read the rules I assumed an out of supply general could not move, when in fact the only thing an OOS general cannot do is conquer a fortress. I can find no other ill effects (apart from troop loss) is this correct.

The example under bullet 5 of rule 9 may have mislead me but I would assume (not having played yet) that the first move of one of those OOS generals would be to squash the enemy supply train and remove it from the map. Not a good use of a supply train in this case to block supply?

Cheers,
Bish.

In addition to the inability to conquer, the face-down general loses 1 troop on the first turn, 2 troops thereafter if he is still face down.

the answer is correct.

And, yes, in the example of the rulebook, the general would be flipped face-down, and then he can eliminate the blocking enemy supply train. Note, however, that he will stay face-down until the start of his next action stage (i.e. until his next supply check).

The example was chosen to emphasize that supply trains can block supply paths.
